It is being reported that The Passage has been cancelled by Fox after just one season. The news is not much of a surprise, as the series struggled over the course of its time on the air.

Premiering as a mid-season entry earlier this year, its initial numbers were fairly good considering the time of the year. But audiences didn't stick around, as its viewership tapered off steadily during its 10 episode run. The series finale aired on March 11.

The Passage follows a top secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure of all diseases, but also holds the potential to eradicate the entire human race. Amy Bellafonte is 10-year-old girl whose mother recently passed away. After she is selected as a test subject, the federal agent tasked with bringing her in ends up becoming her surrogate father, and will protect her at any cost – even as the project's progression threatens to unleash a terrible apocalypse.
