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?

Just found the show and loved it, was looking forward to seeing how they were going to do a second season. So disappointed that it was canceled.

Very entertaining show. Clever writing and frequent suspension of disbelief kept things going, but the last episode destroyed any continuity for an ongoing series with any of the same characters. Perhaps a two part made-for-TV movie would have been a better choice, but I viewed the entire season on Netflix in two very long sessions which made the events that the writers invented seem more overwhelming than if separated by a week in between each episode.

Like it a lot, but agree, it would not have anywhere to go. Great cast.
