TV bosses have sparked reports the remake of the hit 1980s show Knight Rider
is on the verge of cancellation - after ending the series mid-season.
The show, which originally starred David Hasselhoff
, did not feature the actor in its new version - despite his claims he came up with the idea of the show's TV comeback. In a mid-season announcement, the cast and crew of the NBC show were informed the season finale will air on February 25th 2009.
The announcement comes on the heels of an attempt by TV bosses to keep costs down by axing actors Sydney Tamila Poitier
and Bruce Davison
. The series was picked up for a full season in October.
Hasselhoff is replaced by actor Justin Bruening
in the remake.
