Hostages: CBS TV Show Officially (Finally) Cancelled

Hostages TV show on CBSCBS called Hostages a “limited series” but that didn’t mean that it couldn’t return for a second season if the ratings were strong enough. They weren’t and now, the network has officially cancelled it.

On Hostages, the lives of a prominent surgeon’s family are threatened by terrorists who want her to kill the President of the United States. The cast of this thriller includes Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott, James Naughton, Rhys Coiro, Billy Brown, Sandrine Holt, Tate Donovan, Quinn Shephard, and Mateus Ward.

The series debuted to weak ratings back in September and the numbers fell even lower in subsequent weeks. It was clear that this show was going to be cancelled, the only questions was “When?”. To their credit, CBS kept Hostages on the air for all 15 episodes.

They’ve now officially cancelled Hostages. Fortunately for the fans who stuck with it, the show was given some closure in the final episode.

What do you think? Did you like Hostages? Were you hoping for a second season? Maybe with some of the same characters or all new ones?

This series was captivating. Toni’s (the doctor) teeth inside that strangely shaped mouth may be the problem with ratings and not the show itself. Season 2: Kill off Dr. Ellen Sanders, and possibly that lost soul, Jake along with her, put Morgan as a revenging daughter/sister that now holds everyone else involved as hostage – one by one.

Please bring Hostage s back for season two! I really liked the show. I figured it was cancelled when I saw Dylan McDonough on the new show Stalker.

Why did it have to be canceled?! The first season was really interesting, it’s not fair that they canceled it and ruined the fun for the people that watched it. ):
