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.

    I was so sad to have read that Season 2 was cancelled. This show was so different and that is what made it so good. You never knew what the Doc was going to do next. I believe it is political as to what show will continue and those that are cancelled. I really enjoyed the show.

    I am really devastated that the show is discontinued, it was the only thing I watched on television. I was so excited about season 2, I’ve been waiting since last summer only to find this out. I will never tune in to ABC again

    just watched black box for the first time from start to finish i had so moany feelings i wanted to cry and or laugh at times and i feel sad that the movie series stopped i would have liked to have seen the father receive the kidney transplant and what the 15 yr old girl will be going threw as a donor and how she works things out in her many thoughts of her new information she received about her real parents. also see if the gorgeous red head keeps her job and if she gets back with the doc or the other guy ? all actors are awesome by the way. but are they acting ? i would fit in this tv series as well as i can relate to many of the obstacle’s at hand. this show reminds me of ( House MD ) which i really like as well. black box is the best tv series i have ever seen in many years but has no ending ? as it seems to be in real life for me. again i am left afraid of not knowing with so many unanswered questions.
