The Cape creator Tom Wheeler has admitted that he is hoping for a second season of the superhero drama.

The show's third episode dropped over 2m viewers from the initial double bill, but Wheeler insisted to Collider that NBC is still supporting the series.

"All I know is that they are really happy and they feel really good about it," he said. "They have been great partners. I cannot complain about the way they [have] supported the show and promoted the show, and the way they've supported me and the stories I want to tell. That's usually a good sign."

Wheeler added that while the first season will be mostly self-contained, a few story threads will be left hanging for a potential second run.

"I'm really sensitive to the fact that audiences deserve resolution in some things," he said. "I think some things will resolve in a pretty surprising way and, at the same time, we [will] throw open the doors to a number of new elements that will require The Cape to dive into."

He concluded: "I think we finish off telling one story, and then we set the table for what could be a long, bright future."

The Cape airs on Mondays at 9/8c on NBC.
