Well, it looks like the Peacock network is going into crisis mode and not believing in two of their newest dramas.
NBC has pulled both series from its schedule and replacing it with a ‘Women of SNL’ special on Sunday, May 18 (the final Sunday of May Sweeps). This isn’t an official cancellation, but fans of both shows shouldn’t get their hopes up, as this news doesn’t bode well for both dramas.

This past Sunday, both ‘Crisis’ and ‘Believe’ drew a 1.0 among adults 18-49 in the fast nationals. Ever since NBC’s football lineup in January, the network has struggled to keep a successful Sunday night.
Starring Rachael Taylor (‘666 Park Ave’), Gillian Anderson (‘The X-Files’), and Dermot Mulroney (‘New Girl’), among many others, ‘Crisis’ follows Washington D.C.’s elite and the fast-paced world after a group of students get abducted, including the president’s son.
As for ‘Believe,’ which features Jake McLaughlin (‘Crash’) and Kyle MacLachlan (‘Desperate Housewives’), it’s a supernatural drama showcasing a little girl’s (Johnny Sequoyah) gifts (like levitation, telekinesis, controlling nature and seeing into the future). However, those gifts seem to be more of a curse rather than a gift, as a threat is after her powers to control the world.
No word yet if NBC will air the remaining episodes, which is roughly about four for both ‘Crisis’ and ‘Believe,’ but we’ll keep you updated.
