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.

Can’t believe “Black Box” was cancelled. My husband and I were hooked! Each episode kept us coming back for the next. Hated it left us with a cliff hanger. It was an intelligent series.

Noooooo! I looked forward to this show every week. Just went on a computer search to see when the new shows aired, only to find out it won’t. So disappointed. I loved this show. The characters, drama, the acting. If it EVER comes back, please send me an e-mail, as I am still anxious for MORE.
