A.D. – The Bible will not continue

A.D. The Bible Continues- Season 1

According to Variety, NBC has cancelled A.D. – The Bible Continues after only one season.  The overall viewing numbers of the biblical drama, which picked up the story of the 2013 miniseries The Bible, were too low for NBC to renew it for another season.

Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are planning to return to the story on their own digital channel, set to be launched in late 2016 or early 2017. However it is unlikely that another season of A.D. will also mean a return of Roman emperor Caligula, the character portrayed by Andrew Gower.
