It is being reported that CBS has cancelled BrainDead after just one season. The freshman series, from creators Robert and Michelle King, was the duo's next attempt at a hit after The Good Wife, which concluded earlier this year after an impressive seven seasons.
Unfortunately BrainDead didn't quite click with audiences over the course of its 13-episode summer run. A departure from the typical drama, the series was a political thriller of sorts, with a comedic supernatural twist involving a government shutdown due to an alien invasion on the US Capitol.
