ABC will run the final five episodes of the cancelled Six Degrees on ABC.com’s broadband player, the network announced Thursday.
The first unaired episode will appear April 27, with a new episode then added every Friday for four consecutive weeks.
The serialized drama from Executive Producer J.J. Abrams returned midseason on little-watched Friday nights after flopping last fall. But despite creative efforts to quickly wrap up open-ended storylines, it failed to ignite any ratings sparks.
ABC’s decision to abruptly pull it left viewers hanging, a problem that has plagued a slew of low-rated and expensive serialized dramas this season.
Networks have abandoned the programming form for next season and are using their Websites to burn off unaired episodes.
