Dark Blue: TNT Series Cancelled; No Season Three

Dark BlueAfter two seasons on the air, TNT has cancelled Dark Blue. No season three for Carter Shaw and his LAPD team.

Dark Blue stars Dylan McDermott as the leader of an undercover unit whose members are so covert that some of the members of the department don’t even know they’re involved. The rest of the cast includes Omari Hardwick, Logan Marshall-Green, Nicki Aycox, and Tricia Helfer.

The cancellation of the cop drama doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Despite a decline in ratings, the series was renewed for a second season last December. The second round of 10 episodes began airing in August and the numbers were worse than they’d been in year one.

Season two averaged a 0.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and 2.25 million total viewers. Those figures make the series the worst performer of TNT’s summer season and ripe for cancellation.

Dark Blue ended its run with two episodes on September 15th.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that the TV show has been cancelled? How would you have ended the series?

They NEED to bring back this series!!!!! It was awesome! Maybe bring it back on a different Network? Or at least bring back the episodes like they do for all the other ones and run them as re-rums. At least we would be able to enjoy the Series again. Bring it back, Bring it back, Bring it back!!!!!!!!

I cant believe they cancelled this show. It was way better than anything else that’s out there today(and that includes TNT). I’m a 28 year old male living in Southern California and I know for a fact that all my friends and I loved watching this show, and that’s both male and female friends. So if any of the network executives out there are listening you need to bring this show back asap.

The problem with the show was the timing. The network needs to view other networks program line before they put a show on the air. It was a good show and Ted Tuner should have put more money into its advertisement; placing adds on other networks. I guarantee that if you promote that show again with proper advertisement and a not so strong line up it will generate a lot of viewers. Take my word for it, you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

This honestly was a great show! Ratings and reviews seem bias and overly critical! There’s way worse shows like Blue Collar that stay on air, with worse plots & character dimensions. BRING DARK BLUE BACK!!
