Paul Blackthorne (Harry Dresden of The Dresden Files) has signed on to ABC’s upcoming drama Big Shots. If the signing of The Dresden Files‘ title character to another series wasn’t proof enough that The Dresden Files would be a one season and done show, SCI FI has confirmed that the show will not be returning for a second season.
The Dresden Files premiered on Sunday, January 21, 2007 on SCI FI to the tune of 1.73 million viewers (a 1.1/2 household rating and a 0.7/1 rating among adults 18-49), only a so-so debut for a new television series. The show improved in its second week, but began to fizzle slowly downward as the remaining episodes aired.
A complete 12 episode DVD set will be released on Tuesday, August 7, 2007.
