Development and production

In January 2009, The Gates was among numerous pilot scripts being considered by ABC for the 2009"2010 season. It was not until October 2009 that ABC first announced development of the series, which is an international co-production for Fox Television Studios through their international paradigm. A green-light for the 13 episode order was contingent on international financing for the project, which makes the series more economically feasible as a summer replacement.

Casting began in January 2010. In early February, casting announcements included Frank Grillo in a lead role, as well as Luke Mably, Janina Gavankar, and Chandra West having joined the cast. Late March 2010 castings included Marisol Nichols and Rhona Mitra in leading roles. Victoria Platt, Skyler Samuels and newcomer Justin Miles were also cast in the project. Paul Blackthorne will appear in a recurring role.

Filming began in Shreveport, Louisiana on March 29, 2010, and was expected to continue until August 2010. Original reports by Variety suggested that the series might be filmed overseas, with another outlet mentioning South America. The show has featured music by a variety of artists, including indie folk songwriter Quinn Marston.

Series cancellation

Soon after the first season finished airing there were rumors that the show would not be returning for a second season. These rumors were further fueled by cast member Grillo's tweets suggesting that his contract was not going to be renewed. In October 2010 several of the show's stars confirmed that the show had indeed been canceled and that there would not be a second season.

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment announced The Gates: The Complete series on DVD.
