Gang Related: Cancel or Renew for Season Two?

Gang Related TV show on FOX: cancel or renew for season 2Tonight marks the season finale of Gang Related on FOX. It’s been a season of twists and turns but have the ratings been strong enough for the show to be renewed for a second season — or will it be cancelled instead?

On Gang Related, a police detective (Ramon Rodriguez) is torn between his allegiance to his job and co-workers and the gang and crime family that raised him. The cast also includes Terry O’Quinn, RZA, Jay Hernandez, Sung Kang, Inbar Lavi, Cliff Curtis, and Shantel VanSanten.

The series debuted at the end of May to a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.94 million viewers. That was a poor showing right out of the gate and, over the course of the season, the ratings have gotten even worse. Last week’s episode installment hit a new low with a 0.6 demo rating and just 2.01 million viewers.

The season’s averaged a 0.8 rating with 2.56 million. Compared to the network’s other summer shows, Gang Related is performing well behind MasterChef, 24, Hotel Hell, and So You Think You Can Dance.

Though expectations are lower for summer series, it’s highly unlikely that FOX will want to renew Gang Related for a second season. The ratings are just too low — and they’ve essentially been getting worse week after week. More than likely, the execs will roll the dice and try a new program next year.

But, what do you think? Should Gang Related be cancelled or renewed for a second season? If you ran the network, what would you do?

UPDATE: FOX has cancelled Gang Related after one season.

This show is SOOOO SUPERB! If the show was marketed better it would’ve easily pulled a positive rating! It is easily one of the best series I’ve watched! I find myself wanting to find out what happens in the next episode all the time. Do yourself a favour and commission it for a second season! Word of mouth is making people excited about this series here in South Africa.

I really enjoy watching the first season of gang related,I’m not much of a TV viewer but I have to admit that this awesome TV show just woke me up and made me sit on the TV and watch fox greatest show Gang Related. So Fox bring it back for season 2 this is the best show ever,it created a impact and now I love fox because of this show bring it back you won’t regret it.

Please continue with show. Perhaps on FX network. And don’t begin season during summerb when audiences are involved in other pursuits. Everyone I know in the Chicagoland area were greatly interested in the series, its characters, plots, & relevance to current issues.I say renew & air on a cable network & allow the show to be racier & edgier.

Please don’t cancel our favorite show. My family and I have a routine for us to watch it. We have started getting others into the show and have it discussions abiut what we think is going to happen and by who. I think u should reconsider that. You just can’t leave us in suspense like this. It’s time for these boys to go to war. THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!!

Loved it,please give it a second chance or should I say season..

As I read every comment I can see that everyone feels the same way I do. Fox, you can not cancel one of the hottest shows on TV. What you need to do is move it to the Fall and I guarantee that you will get a lot more viewers. Me and my husband sat there every Thursday and watched it, so I am asking you NOT to cancel the show, give it a chance and I bet you will be surprised with the ratings. BRING IT BACK, BRING IT BACK, BRING IT BACK……PLEASEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!


Not Happy!!!!! October 29, 2014 at 6:14 pm

This show was very interesting, it kept me on the edge of my seat. I don’t understand how good shows get cancelled and the crappy one tends to remain on TV. The way the season ended was a nail bitter, why would you cancel a show that ends the way that one did and leave us all hanging. This show is really a reality show, because everything that happened in that show really does happen. Fox really needs to bring it back so we can continue enjoying it!!!!

I love Gang related! I looked forward to watching it! Please bring Gang Related back!!


Susie October 22, 2014 at 8:52 pm

I would love if Gang Related were to return. I looked forward to watching it week after week. The story line was great and so was the cast. I was looking to see if a 2nd Season would take place and this is how I bumped into this site. I would love it on Friday night.

I really loved it this is a great show with a good story line. There wasn’t much advertising about it at all I just happened to come across it and have watched it ever since. It would be a shame give a another season.


samoansuga October 18, 2014 at 12:06 am

this show is excellent, i just think it needs to be advertised more to get the credit and audience it deserves. i would love to watch more of it and im sure i speak on behalf of alot of other people too so please don’t cancel it.


darren October 17, 2014 at 5:44 pm

This should definitely not be cancelled, I think this has a great story, I’m loving the cast also, I’m now just watching the final 2 episodes and have just learned that fox could cancel, please don’t, cancel a show that has endless repeated on, again and again.


upset and confused October 16, 2014 at 12:03 am

This was a very good action packed show. It should not be cancelled, especially to leave the viewers hanging on @ the end like that. Maybe try putting on at a different time/day. It’s amazing which shows get cancelled and which shows (reality) remain on television. Would love to see it return!!!!!!
