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 definitely watch it! I thought it was one of the best shows on TV, I don’t understand why it was not a hit. I love the cast and the locations across Europe could not be better.
Great show, very exciting content. NBC needs to pick up season two maybe put it on a different night and time and start to promote it. The production of this show is terrific!
I hope another network will pick it up and make it the success it deserves.

Fantastic show!!! NBC, please renew this smart, character rich gem! So wonderful to have the option to watch a crime show that keeps you on the edge of your seat without all of the gore!

I watched the first season and found it engaging, interesting, well written and well paced. A new take on the genre with its international venue, ideas, plots and cast.
I would very much like to see it continue to be shown in the US.

I can’t believe this was cancelled. The only reasons for low rating are starting it in the summer and failing to promote it.

Absolutely bring it back! With all the “reality” tripe and adolescent-boy-humor shows being aired, surely there is room for a quality series such as this.
