"" failed to get a renewal order from FOX. After months of speculations about whether or not the show will return for a second season, the network has finally decided to pull the plug on the prehistoric dino drama after only one season.

Though FOX canceled the big-budgeted sci-fi series, it does not necessarily mean the end of the show. Studio 20th Century Fox TV says it's trying to keep "Terra Nova" alive by shopping it to other networks.

Announcing the cancellation, lead actor took to Twitter on Monday, March 5 to write, "Bad news guys, Terra Nova has been cancelled by @FoxBroadcasting. We're gonna try and get another network to do it. Stand by."

Averaging 7.52 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, "Terra Nova" will likely become the highest-rated canceled show of the season. Words are, the executives at FOX are not too fond of the show, which is also deemed one of the season's most expensive series to produce.
