Why did Passions get Cancelled? Passions was cancelled by NBC in January 2007 because of low ratings. DirecTV made a special arrangement to fund production of the soap and began airing it exclusively in the Fall of 2007, hoping that fans would be willing to subscribe to the satellite TV service or to pay an online subscription fee.
Who were the characters on Passions?
How did Passions soap opera end? Esme shrieks that her bottle is empty and tells the bride and groom that they must finish the nuptials so she can have more. Ethan and Theresa commit their love to one another, complete the ceremony, and are finally married.
What soap did Passions replace? Enter “Passions,” which replaced the venerable but ratings-impaired “Another World” five weeks ago on NBC (Monday through Friday at 2 p.m.). “Peyton Place meets the X-Files” is how creator James E. Reilly describes “Passions,” a mix of teen angst, standard lather and the occult.
