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.

My wife and I liked the 1st series and couldn’t wait for the next episode to come on. We are extremely disappointed that the 2nd series is cancelled. I have no idea why it did not retain it’s viewers, all the characters did a great job.

I watched the entire first episode in only two days and would have gone on with the second season until I realized that there is none :o I’m so frustrated since this is such a good series! It actually emotionally AND intellectually challenges the viewer which makes it so wonderful. In comparison to daily soaps it has a much higher value. Maybe that is why there wasn’t a huge amount of viewers but as can be seen in all these comments the people who truly watched this series loved it! I can only repeat that I’m really frustrated to be left hanging.
