Crossing Lines: Season Two Renewal; Will NBC Air It?

Crossing Lines season twoFrance’s TF1 and Sony Pictures Television Networks have renewed Crossing Lines for a second season.

There will be 12 episodes this time around (vs 10 episodes in season one) and production will begin on September 22nd. Locations will include France, the Czech Republic, Monte Carlo and Bulgaria.

Regulars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Tom Wlaschiha, Gabriella Pession and Richard Flood will all return, along with Lara Rossi, who was introduced late in the first season. Guest stars will include Carrie-Anne Moss and Ray Stevenson.

Crossing Lines has been very popular internationally, airing in over 180 territories. It hasn’t been a big hit here in the states however.

NBC aired the series on Sunday nights this summer to poor ratings. The season finale registered just a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.06 million viewers — series lows.

The peacock network says that they haven’t made a decision on the future of the show on NBC. Unfortunately, based on the ratings, there’d be little incentive to license season two of Crossing Lines.

If they don’t pick it up, the show could find a US home on a cable channel, possibly one that’s owned by NBC-Universal like USA Network. Merlin underperformed on NBC in its first year so it was moved to Syfy for the later four seasons.

What do you think? Should NBC pick up season two of Crossing Lines or cancel the low-rated series instead? Would you watch it on a cable channel like USA?

I would watch it on either NBC or USA. If it doesn’t run on either, I’ll get the DVD from France when it comes out and binge watch it. I have to do that often enough given the horrible quality of most domestic US TV, especially on the legacy networks.

The show is great and should be aired. I don’t think the ratings accurately reflect as many people record the shows and that doesn’t show in the ratings. However, there is a reason it is so popular over seas. Keep the show please!!!

This is a great show. The writing, acting, and locations are very well done. The concept is fresh and very interesting . Unlike half of what NBC has considered air worthy, this show is the exception. I will watch this show on whatever network it is shown on over what NBC airs on any given night. Please give the public more interesting and intelligent choices on television instead of some of the trash that is on now.
