Chase: NBC Series Finally Cancelled, No Season Two

Chase canceled season twoWe all knew it was coming but now the peacock network has made it official. Chase has been cancelled after one abbreviated season on the air and won’t be back for season two.

Chase follows US Marshall Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) as she heads up the Houston Enforcement & Apprehension Task Force. Annie and her team (played by Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Rose Rollins, and Jesse Metcalfe) hunt down America’s most dangerous fugitives.

When it debuted in September, Chase scored mediocre ratings at best and things went quickly downhill from there. On Monday nights, Chase averaged just a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and a meager 5.44 million viewers. When the series moved to Wednesday nights in 2011, the ratings only got worse and it became the lowest-rated scripted series on the network.

TV show supportIn February, NBC pulled the show off the air but wouldn’t say that it was cancelled. Still, we all knew the writing was on the wall. There were five episodes left unaired and last month, the peacock network began burning them off on Saturday nights. If there were any hopes left, the Saturday ratings reports dashed them. New episodes of Chase typically don’t perform any better than reruns of other NBC shows.

The peacock network has now made the cancellation official. Episode 17 airs tonight and the series finale of Chase airs next Saturday night at 8pm.

What do you think? Will you miss watching Chase? Why do you think the series struggled right from the start?

    i personally loved the program my wife and i were avid fans over her in england and yet another series we have enjoyed has been cancelled like lie to me and for me personally no ordinary family and yet shows like boardwalk empire which is so boring i fell asleep watching first 3 episodes and then gave up . id really like to know who the hell decides to air potentially great programmes on night no one watches making it doomed to fail instead of giving it a chance and airing it a the weekends i personally work nights but its one of the few programmes i had on my sky+ planner along with 24 lie to me bones to name but a few

    I hate that it got can’d…I actually loved the show and all the cast members. Its alot better than most of the NBC shows. It never fails when they have a great show it ends up getting can’d because they put it up against something better on one of the other channels. Maybe USA network or ION needs to buy the show like they did Flashpoint which is an awesome show but CBS just couldn’t get any where with it….Cole Hauser is the bomb.

    I am sooooo happy this pile of crap was cancelled. Giddish is no leading man tho he tries. Poor writers. Poor acting. Poor excuse for a show.
