Black Box: TV Show Cancelled by ABC; No Season Two

Black Box TV show on ABC canceledAs expected, ABC has cancelled their summer series Black Box after one season of 13 episodes, reports EW.

Black Box 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 series debuted in late April to a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.87 million viewers. It was a mediocre start for the dramatic series and the numbers got progressively worse as new episodes were released. Towards the end of its 13 episode run, Black Box dropped to a 0.6 demo rating with 3.72 million.

The last two episodes aired on July 24th, leaving the main character’s professional fate up in the air.

What do you think? Did you like the Black Box series? Do you think that it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season? Why do you think the show didn’t catch on?

I am pissed…that’s why I try not to get involved with ANY new series that ABC starts. Because their chance of continuing a 2nd season is usually nil. I surprised that Revenge is still out there and I’m not so sure about Resurrection. ABC doesn’t have any loyalty to their viewers. If they’re going to end something…END IT…don’t leave people hanging.

I really love Black Box and want it to come back. Why did it have to be cancelled? It doesn’t make any sense. BRING THE SHOW BACK!

I loved Black Box. Perhaps Netflix can continue it with the same cast and we can binge view season 2 over and over!!!
