Description: When a mysterious object plummets to Earth, the blinding explosion it causes sends out a shock wave that instantly connects five strangers who awaken after the pulse with extraordinary gifts they can barely believe. Most mysterious of all is a figure known only as The Man, who brings death and suffering wherever he appears. The wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and these five newly christened Angels of the Apocalypse may be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture. CWTV.com
Why Was It Cancelled? This series appeared to be hitting the schedule DOA with its late season premiere and low-viewership Friday timeslot. Its debut tied for the lowest ever for a broadcast network scripted show and then its numbers dropped from there. I thought that The CW might give it a few weeks to see if its numbers might justify a slot on the Summer schedule, but they went ahead and cancelled after only three episodes had aired, proving that they had already given up on it before it hit the air.
