Turns out the Blood Drive episode that aired on Syfy Wednesday night was its last. “Unfortunately, your suspicions are correct. Syfy has canceled Blood Drive after one season,” wrote series creator James Roland in his blog. “If this news makes you angry or sad, you’re not alone. I found out not too long ago, but have been trying to think of a way to tell you guys since I felt it was up to me to let the fans know. Ultimately I decided to wait until after the final episode aired so the news did not taint your experience.” Blood Drive had been averaging 300,000-400,000 viewers.
