In the month of pilot seasons, everything is touch and go, as all pilot episodes are handed in and considered by executive producers from each production company, it feels as if the wait is forever until they announce their verdict. Sadly, the news that came with the Delirium and The Selection pilots were not good. Both were cancelled and scrapped, along with many others and disappointing fans worldwide. With such a huge online buzz, and equally enormous followings from both fan-bases for the books, it seemed as if the Delirium and The Selection series’ were a done deal.
Earlier today Entertainment Weekly posted an entire list of some of the most shocking pilots to be rejected, along with reasons why, Delirium and The Selection being in that list.
According to the Article, Delirium was found to feel “too young” for FOX’s usual audience, deciding against it. While with The Selection it was said to be similar to the soap series Reign, which is reportedly liked more by the executives at The CW, despite this being the second attempt at creating a Pilot for the best-selling book.
Do you think Delirium was too young for FOX audiences? Or do you think The CW made a mistake picking Reign instead of The Selection? Let us know in the comments!
