Black Box: Has the ABC TV Show Been Cancelled?

Black Box TV show canceled or season two?ABC recently cancelled several shows (Mixology, Suburgatory, Betrayal, etc.) and renewed many others (Resurrection, Revenge, The Goldbergs, etc.). What about the new Black Box series that airs on Thursday nights?

The show revolves around a beautiful and brilliant neuroscientist (Kelly Reilly) who’s hiding the fact that she’s bipolar. The rest of the cast includes Ditch Davey, David Ajala, Terry Kinney, Ali Wong, David Chisum, Laura Fraser, Siobhan Williams, and Vanessa Redgrave.

The show debuted on April 24th to a poor 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.87 million viewers. The ratings have gotten even worse as the weeks have progressed. This week’s installment hit a new low with a 1.1 rating and 4.31 million.

While ABC hasn’t cancelled Black Box, they surely will. The ratings have just been too low to be renewed for a second season.

The question now is, “Will all of the episodes air?” There are nine episodes remaining. If the ratings keep going down, the network could easily pull the show and replace it with reruns. Hopefully they’ll either air or release them so the show’s small audience can see them.

What do you think? Do you think that Black Box should be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Do you think ABC should air all of the episodes they have?

I love this show! I definitely think it needs to be renewed! It helped me understand my ex-husband/father of my children as he too is bipolar. Please don’t cancel it!

Please don’t cancel Black Box!!! New series take time to develop. This is a very good intellectual program. Give it time ABC! We MUST find out what happens with Katherine , Bickman, Esme, and the rest. Why can we not have good tv anymore??? We drop dead with comedies and reality programs!!

I so hope the show continues. I didn’t miss an episode and loved it’s originality. I’ve always had an interest in neurology and felt it presented real life situations.

Black Box is amazing – a wonderful show that shows the brilliance and reality of having bi-polar disorder! It is such an important subject that has rarely – if ever – been approached so intelligently! Please do not cancel!
