Franklin & Bash: Season Three Renewal for TNT Series

Franklin and Bash on TNT season three renewalTNT is headed back to court. The cable channel has renewed their legal drama Franklin & Bash for a third season reports EW.

Franklin & Bash is a light-hearted legal drama that follows two fly-by-the seat-of-their-pants lawyers (Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer) who work at a button-down law firm. The cast also includes Dana Davis, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Kumail Nanjiani, Malcolm McDowell, and Reed Diamond.

The TV series premiered in June 2011 to 2.75 million viewers. The ratings went up and down over the course of the 10 episode season and the TV series ended up averaging 2.64 million viewers.

The show was renewed for a second season and that kicked off this past June. Over the course of the 10 episodes, Franklin & Bash averaged 2.88 million viewers. The final episode aired in mid-August.

While there was some season-to-season growth, Franklin & Bash remains one of TNT’s lowest-rated scripted dramas, with viewership well below shows like Perception, Major Crimes, Dallas, Rizzoli & Isles, and Falling Skies.

In fact, it hasn’t done much better than HawthoRNe, a drama that TNT cancelled with a 2.37 million average.

Despite the low ratings, TNT has renewed Franklin & Bash for a third year. It’s not clear at this point how many episodes have been ordered or when they’ll air. Additional details are expected within the next couple days.

What do you think? Do you like the Franklin & Bash TV series? Do you think it should have been cancelled instead of renewed?

With all of the horrible reality shows on television lately, it is soooo nice to just sit back, watch this show and laugh. Not only do I find it highly entertaining but its one of those shows that makes you feel good. I hope TNT has the inteligence to keep it on for a very long time.

F & B is one very funny show. Its refreshing to watch a legal show that isn’t dry. I see it going on for many more seasons.

I love Franklin & Bash, good light entertainment and if they cancel it, I’d not be happy. I make sure to be home to watch or record for later viewing. TV would not be the same without it. PLEASE don’t cancel Franklin & Bash. They are my favorites.

Well now Leverage is the only show that ran this summer that hasn’t been renewed? Death warrant?

Well leverage had its summer finale the rest of the season is coming soon so might be too early to make a decision yet
