Atlantis: BBC America Picks up Season Two

Atlantis season twoBBC America has ordered a second season of Atlantis, their new TV series.

Atlantis debuted on November 23rd and drew 838,000 viewers, the cable network’s highest-rated series premiere for their Supernatural Saturday block. The high numbers very likely came at least in part because of the show’s big lead-in, the Doctor Who anniversary episode. There are 13 episodes in the current season.

Atlantis is off to a fantastic start and is the centerpiece of our Saturday nights for the next 12 weeks,” notes BBC America’s senior vp programming Richard De Croce. “We’re committed to bringing our viewers even more entertaining episodes inspired by Greek mythology from Howard and the talented team in season two.”

    we love this show, why do they always leave on the crap and cancel shows that everyone loves? TV execs need to start listening to viewers and doing what they want or get out of the business, please!!

    The second part of Season 2 will be returning in late Feb 2015. Unfortunately, rumors are now appearing on the Internet that BBC is cancelling the show and there will be no Season 3 this Fall 2015. Just as the critics began to love the show, it looks like the ratings didn’t support another series, even with improved stories, character development, amazing sets, you name it. If the rumors are true, good luck to Jack, Aiysha, Robert, Sarah, Mark – bascially the entire cast and crew, for what was developing into a fantastic show!
