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.

This show was an outstanding view on those suffering with mental illness. In todays world little is known about mental disorders and how they touch peoples lives in many arenas of work. I thought this show had a great cast of players and how dedicated they put themselves on this show. It was one of the best for an evening at home with my wife. Shame on you!!!

The show really was brilliant and so informative regarding diagnosis of different illnesses. Please bring the show back. It was the only show I looked forward to seeing this summer.
