The CW series, starring Matthew Davis and Jessica Lucas, was pulled from the network in April, but the final six episodes will see the light of day.
"Cult" returns on Fridays, beginning June 28, airing double episodes for three weeks straight. The show centers on journalist Jeff (Davis) and production researcher Skye's (Lucas) investigation into a TV show that's generated a cult following of fans who are re-creating the crimes depicted on their screens.
Creator Rockne S. O'Bannon was the first to break the news about "Cult" coming back to finish its run via Twitter.

The CW confirmed the news of "Cult's" return to The Huffington Post. The show's cancellation in April didn't come as a surprise. The midseason series made its debut on Tuesday, February 19 and brought in a dismal 941,000 total viewers and only had a 0.3 rating in the key 18-49 demo.
After "Cult's" second outing, which saw even lower numbers, The CW moved the series to Fridays, which, for the teen-centric network, is not quite as deadly as it is on others. "Nikita" and "Supernatural" have both flourished on Fridays, but "Cult" did not. The most recent episode, which aired on Friday, April 5, brought in 620,000 total viewers and had a 0.2 rating.
