UPDATE March 11: The final episode goes live at NBC.com at midnight ET Friday, March 11. A preview clip is at the end of the post.
“The Cape” ended its on-air run on Monday (Feb. 28), even though it still has one more episode left to air.
You’ll still get to see that episode — you’ll just have to watch it on a somewhat smaller screen. As reported by TV Series Finale, the 10th and last episode of “The Cape’s” first season will debut online sometime this month.
A note on the show’s page at NBC.com reads, “The creators of ‘The Cape’ are prepping an exclusive episode just for online fans! Keep watching this site in the days ahead to see a full-length special episode.”
Prospects for “The Cape’s” return for a second season were fairly dim anyway, and moving the final episode off-air doesn’t brighten them any. NBC had initially planned to air two episodes of the show on Monday, but its meager ratings (just 4.1 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 this week) led the network to decide against taking “Chuck” off the air two weeks in a row (“The Event’s” two-hour return will pre-empt it next week).
We’ll update this post and send out a note on Twitter when we get a specific date for “The Cape’s” finale online.
