“Yes Alcatraz is cancelled,” said veteran genre actor Sam Neill, who plays federal agent Emerson Hauser in JJ Abrams’ Alcatraz. “Very sad today.”

“Much thanks to all Alcatraz fans,” he continued. “We were just beginning, but we will meet again I’m sure. Your support meant a lot – we’re very grateful.”
