The drama from Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”) and Peter Elkoff (“Gossip Girl”) won’t be back for a second season
NBC isn’t into “Camp.”
The broadcaster canceled the drama series created by Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”) and Peter Elkoff (“Gossip Girl”) and starring Rachel Griffiths (“Brothers & Sisters,” “Six Feet Under”).
Cast member Nikolai Nikolaeff broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday.
“So… It was a great summer and I loved every minute of it,” he wrote. “Sorry to all the @NBCCamp fans out there but no go on #CampSeason2. #upsetting.”
An individual with knowledge of the situation confirmed the decision.
Griffiths starred as a divorced camp director looking for a fresh start. The series explored the campers and counselors at Little Otter Family Camp, where summer memories are made.
Part of a trend in which networks presented new series year-round, “Camp” was an inexpensive scripted drama shot in Australia with a predominately Aussie cast.
NBC only aired 10 of the 13 episodes it ordered. “Camp” premiered in July to 5 million viewers. By its finale on Sept. 11, the audience shrunk to 3.22 million people.
