The freshman J.J. Abrams thriller will not return.
May 9, 2012
Fox has cancelled new drama Alcatraz, which premiered earlier this year in January as a mid-season replacement. The series got off to a solid start in the ratings, but viewership dropped off significantly over the course of its 13 episodes. The show's last four episodes rated a series low 1.6 in the key adults 18-49 demographic, which was clearly not enough for Fox to bring back the series.
Also cancelled by Fox today was freshman drama The Finder.

I enjoyed the show also. But there was to much mystery. No one has time for that. Let the audience know the secret.

This show had potential. It's shame that it won't get to share the mystery.

Ok, seriously bummed right now! I'm not American so I didn't know till just now that Alcatraz is cancelled. I fell completely in love with the Alcatraz series and to find out it's cancelled makes me both sad and frustrated! I don't get hooked on a lot of TV shows, but this was a mindblowing and wonderfully original show to watch. I love the caracters as well as the plot, and with every episode I was glued to the screen! Please, I'm begging, DO NOT cancel the show!!

Ugh! I dont even know where to begin. This was the only mysterious/crime/thriller/syfy kind of show that I actually watched, so anxious every Monday nights to watch it , and watch the reruns online, then i find out that its been canceled? Awful! this show had such a different interesting story line and yet it was one of the many shows that was canceled. The non-story line ones were actually renewed like American Idol?, and Hart of Dixie? whats the point? Alcatraz is Worth watching! and many people are outraged with this! I loved this show because it was something new, and it was phenomenal... I hope another network picks it up because this show deserves a second chance!

I have decided NOT to watch any new shows coming in the fall. Why bother? Almost every new series I started in 2011-12 has been canceled. This is true of all networks. I am tired of investing in series never to know how the end! So no new shows for me!!!!!

Very upset to hear this news...I LOVED Alcatraz..it was really good. Monday night have been crazy for the past year or so....I had 6 programs to watch at one time..so does DVR recording count...A lot of people dvr the shows and watch them later... There at too many law and order, csi, or reality show on..they are not entertaining.... Didn't they say that Alcatraz was renewed during the season???? Why the change???? Bring it back please
