NBC has declined to pick-up the option on a full season order of episodes for The Sixth Gun, which is based on the Oni Press comic book series. The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise as previous reports from the Hollywood trades seemed to indicate that the show was virtually a lock for a roster spot on the peacock network's Fall lineup. The pilot secured a talented cast that included Aldis Hodge, Laura Ramsey, Michiel Huisman, Elena Santine and Graham McTavish. With The CW's Amazon put on hold, it's looking a bit like 2012 all over again, which saw pilots for Powers, AKA Jessica Jones, Wonder Woman and Punisher all passed over. Currently, the lone hope for a new television show based on a comic book property is ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but there's been no official word yet.
