On her MySpace account, actress Jill Wagner had this to say about the cancellation of the SpikeTV Original Series:
Just wanted to say thanks again to all of you who supported me and Blade the Series. I was just informed today that there will be NO 2nd season of Blade the Series. I really enjoyed playing Krista and i hope that i did her justice at least for one season! However, that is not the end of Jill Wagner’s acting career. I will keep you guys posted on what’s next for me. Again i say thanks for the support. Hey, there is always the DVD right????
The series started off strongly, premiering in June of this year to the tune of roughly 2.5M viewers, the highest ever for a SpikeTV Original Series.
However, the show quickly lost that audience and by the fourth episode, 1.07M viewers (less than half of those who tuned in for the two-hour pilot) were still watching.
