Sad Night for TV: The Investiture of the Gods and Novoland: Eagle Flag Suddenly Taken Off Air

It should be dubbed the mystery of the missing episodes.


In a night of surprising letdowns, two dramas fell prey to the overused excuse of ‘quality issues” as a reason for pulling a show abruptly from the roster. I’m talking about The Investiture of the Gods and Novoland: Eagle Flag

Of the two, Novoland: Eagle Flag which was supposed to premiere last night (Jun 3) has been postponed to an unknown future release. I don’t know how much of a heads up were provided for the cancellations. I mean, Novoland: Eagle Flag has been on full promotion mode until up to eleventh hour when less than 30 minutes prior to the premiere, news broke that the fantasy drama was not going to air after all.

Investiture of the Gods had it a little bit better (only just) since 53 out of its 65 episodes have already been aired. Unfortunately though, it seems that the show had to be rushed edited in order to squeeze in the remaining 12 episodes into 2 episodes to conclude the drama in 55, also scheduled for last night. 

I take back what I said about Investiture of the Gods having it a little bit easier. Without any warning at all, the finale for Investiture of the Gods never aired. Instead, it was replaced by Young Blood which premiered with zero fanfare and promotion.

As you know, China has a censorship system which may or may have not been the culprit. It’s not unheard of for certain (unlucky) productions to face restrictions from the National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA); though we’ll probably never know the real reason aside from the one given at face value. 

These sudden postponements are truly unfortunate in the face of growing interest in Chinese dramas among international audiences. What are your thoughts regarding the Investiture of the Gods lack of a finale and were any of you disappointed when Novoland: Eagle Flag did not air as planned last night?
