By the end of May, Dark Shadows was ABC's most popular soap opera, and by late it was reaching between 7 and 9 million viewers on any given day, and ranking 11th out of a total 15 daytime dramas in that time period.
In November , after nine months of some of Dark Shadows ' most intricate, intelligent storylines, the storyline came to an end.
With ratings at an all-time high, the writers were under pressure to hold the audience. Fans tended to dislike the portrayal of Barnabas as the pawn of some greater power.
They were more interested in the archetypes of classic horror—the vampire, the witch, the werewolf—than in off-camera suggestion.
The release of the film House of Dark Shadows in September of that year is also thought to have caused TV ratings to fall, perhaps because of parents who attended the film with their children, and seeing the amount of blood spilled across the screen, discouraged their children's choice of television viewing material.
Within six months, ratings dropped from 7. Ironically, Nielsen ratings for March , the last full month that Dark Shadows was on the air, revealed that viewership had risen in its final weeks.
By early , though, ABC was trying to cut costs in the face of harsh new economic realities including a national economic recession, a sharp dip in advertising revenue following the discontinuance of cigarette commercials , and a record-high number of competing soap operas—which were more expensive to produce than game or talk shows—on the networks' daytime schedules.
Thus, the network began weeding out supposedly unproductive programming. Despite its relatively high station clearances for its time slot and low production costs, Dark Shadows fell victim to the purge mainly because of its young audience, who usually did not make decisions about the purchasing of household goods and food products for the family, which were the two chief industries that bought airtime on daytime television in that era.
Practically no other daytime show skewed so much under the 18—35 demographic threshold as Dark Shadows did. Furthermore, prime-time shows and movies with horror or science fiction themes e.
In addition and probably more decisively, the program experienced a precipitous drop in its ratings during its last two years on the air, falling from a peak of 8.
I couldn't squeeze my brain any harder to come up with just one more story. I just wanted to move on and out. Despite many letters of protest from outraged fans, ABC canceled the five-year-old show on April 2, , and replaced it with a new version of the hit s game show Password.
The rather abrupt ending of the series left some plotlines such as Victoria Winters' parentage, and the story of the Jennings family unfinished, although most of the plot threads came to a happy conclusion, via a voice-over explaining future events in the final minute of the last episode.
The original cast reunited in for a special reunion play recorded for MPI, and in resumed production of Dark Shadows audio dramas for Big Finish see below.
These dramas have been ongoing for 10 seasons. For the one lost episode , only a home audio recording exists. The home video version and cable reruns of this episode were reconstructed from a combination of this soundtrack, video still frames sourced from other episodes, and the closing and opening scenes from episodes and respectively.
However, delays kept the show from entering syndication, mainly because the FCC imposed Financial Interest and Syndication Rules , forcing the networks to sell off their syndication companies.
Over the years, more episodes were released in varying quantities until the show finished its syndicated run in However, the first shows and roughly the last year's worth of shows were never seen in syndication.
Dark Shadows was lucky to be in reruns at all; most daytime programs at the time were being destroyed in an effort to recycle the videotape, and those programs that survived were usually locked away without ever being seen again.
For many years the show was rerun on Sci-Fi Channel, now known as Syfy. Unlike previous networks, Syfy had the entire run of 1, episodes to show.
The network stopped airing Dark Shadows in December All 1, episodes in the series were shown at various times between and A total of 1, episodes were produced but, during the course of its run, the show was preempted 20 times.
ABC would compensate by occasionally skipping, double-numbering and, in one case, triple-numbering episodes in order to keep a show ending in a 5 or 0 airing on Fridays.
This is why the last episode produced has when, in actuality, it was only the 1,th episode produced.
Curtis set out to find the actress to play the girl on the train. Alexandra Isles then Alexandra Moltke , a young actress with little experience, was discovered and cast in the role of Victoria Winters ,  an orphan who journeys to the mysterious, fictional town of Collinsport, Maine , to unravel the mysteries of her past.
Veteran film star Joan Bennett was soon cast as Victoria's employer Elizabeth Collins Stoddard ,  a woman who had not left her home in over eighteen years.
As production on the series continued, many new and mysterious characters, played by unfamiliar actors and actresses were introduced, but two early cast changes brought stage actors David Ford and Thayer David into the ensemble.
Thayer David would go on to play several formidable villains over the course of the series. Most of the actors played multiple characters, and those characters often returned through flashbacks, the use of parallel time lines, or as ghosts.
The exteriors for the "Old House" original Collinwood mansion were filmed at Spratt Mansion, which was also located on the Lyndhurst estate; this mansion was destroyed by fire in Some outdoors shots for the series were filmed in the famous Sleepy Hollow Cemetery , not far from the Lyndhurst Mansion.
Working within the constraints of the live-to-tape format—with almost every scene done in one take— Dark Shadows displayed an unusually inventive use of costume, make-up and, in particular, special effects.
Both time travel and ghosts allowed characters killed in earlier sequences to return, often in period clothing. Dream sequences included colorful psychedelic spectacles superimposed over ethereal, fog-filled fantasies.
Individuals of normal appearance were transformed into hideous creatures of the netherworld. Of particular note is Robert Cobert 's music score, which broke new ground for a television program.
The original soundtrack cracked the top 20 of the U. Billboard national albums chart in and still ranks as one of the top-selling TV soundtracks ever.
The single peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot chart and number 3 on its Easy Listening chart in summer , when Dark Shadows was perhaps at the peak of its popularity.
Dark Shadows had a rocky beginning. Critics were quick to deem the series rather boring for its heavy use of unknown actress Isles and the slow pace.
Variety , in its review on June 29, , of Dark Shadows first eipsode: "Writer Art Wallace took so much time getting into his story that the first episode of the Neo Gothic soaper added up to one big contemporary yawn.
The supernatural elements that later made the show a hit, were slow to appear and only hinted at until episodes 52 and 70 in which the audience finally sees compelling evidence of a ghost.
MPI Home Video currently holds the home video rights to the series. All episodes were issued on VHS from through Episodes — Barnabas' arrival through to the end of the series have been released on DVD in 26 Collections from through Episodes 1— were released in under the title of Dark Shadows: The Beginning.
The first and sometimes, the second collection from Barnabas's introduction has been released internationally, but due to generally low sales, this has been the extent of the international release of the series.
The DVDs are housed in 22 individual plastic cases, with the spines looking upward to show the entire body of Barnabas lying asleep in his coffin.
Only 2, numbered copies of these were made, with each set including a limited edition card signed by original series star Jonathan Frid.
A similar but unlimited "Deluxe Edition" set was subsequently released on July 10, , without the limited edition card signed by Jonathan Frid and without the serial limitation number plate on the bottom of the box.

In , a two-part article titled "Collecting Dark Shadows : Return to Collinwood", written by Rod Labbe, appeared in Autograph Collector magazine; it was the first major article to chronicle the show in years.
Labbe also contributes to Fangoria magazine and is currently doing a series of full-length interviews with surviving original cast members, leading up to the release of Burton's film.

A second series was released in In January , Big Finish began releasing the full cast Dark Shadows serial Bloodlust in twice-weekly installments, as to emulate the initial soap opera format of the show.
The revival was a lavish, big-budget, weekly serial combining Gothic romance and stylistic horror. Although it was a huge hit at its introduction watched by almost 1 in 4 households, according to official ratings during that time period , the onset of the Gulf War caused NBC to continually preempt or reschedule the episodes, resulting in declining ratings.
Plans for another revival series or film have been discussed off and on since the series' demise, including a TV miniseries to wrap up the plotlines of the canceled NBC series and a feature film, co-written by Dan Curtis and Barbara Steele, utilizing the cast.
The pilot has been screened at the Dark Shadows Festival conventions with Dan Curtis Productions' blessing, but has yet to surface elsewhere.
This pilot was produced by Warner Bros. In , Warner Bros. Tim Burton directed the film, and Johnny Depp , finally realizing one of his childhood fantasies, starred as Barnabas Collins.
However, the film treated the stories comedically, and was not the hoped-for major success. Television were interested in developing a sequel to the original series called Dark Shadows: Reincarnation by Mark B.
Perry described this announcement: "As a first-generation fan, it's been a dream of mine to give Dark Shadows the Star Trek treatment since way back in the '80s when Next Generation was announced, so I'm beyond thrilled and humbled to be entrusted with this resurrection.
