Steve Wang, Producer of Kamen Rider Dragon Knight, has made a statement on the show’s cancellation:
Well, it’s official. According to Adness Entertainment, as of Dec. 26th, [Kamen Rider Dragon Knight] will be cancelled by [CW4Kids] due to low ratings I am told. Because January is when they air new shows, they will not be airing the last 2 episodes of KRDK.
I have no confirmation whether they will post the last 2 episodes on their website or not. But I am sure someone will. As for my feelings about this? Well, it’s long and complicated as I have a little more insight about some of the behind the scenes, but at this point, I don’t think it really matters what I think. The reality is that the cancellation is confirmed. That’s not to say it won’t pop up on a different network in the future.
I also have no news about a new [Kamen Rider] series, but again because of the situation, I don’t think we will be involved with it anyway.
And no news of a DVD release either. I was told in order to release it on DVD, it had to have good ratings or no one will want to distribute it. As of my last conversation with Adness, they said potential distributors were waiting to see the results of the ratings.
So thanks to all of you that have stuck with and supported Dragon Knight. It was much appreciated! It’s been a fun ride and I hope some people were able to get some enjoyment out of it.
