Human Target: Season Two Premiere Delayed Again

Human TargetIf you’ve been waiting for the return of FOX’s Human Target series, you’ll have to wait quite awhile longer.

When FOX cancelled Lone Star, they rescheduled the third season premiere of Lie to Me to take its place on Monday. Lie to Me was originally supposed to return on Wednesday, November 17th. To fill that timeslot, they’ve now delayed the return of Human Target.

After already being delayed a week, Human Target was supposed to return this Friday, October 1st, at 8pm. While its unfortunate that fans will have to wait another six weeks for the return of Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) and company, this may be advantageous for the show’s future.

The series performed pretty well in on Wednesday nights last season and Friday nights are understandably always tough to attract a decent-sized audience in the target demo.

Here’s the official press release from FOX…

Season Two of FOX’s hit series HUMAN TARGET will premiere Wednesday, Nov. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Picking up from the heart-pounding first season cliffhanger, the new season of HUMAN TARGET kicks off with a bang as CHANCE (Mark Valley) and GUERRERO (Jackie Earle Haley) race to rescue their kidnapped associate, WINSTON (Chi McBride). Vowing to retire from the security business, Chance is lured back to work by billionaire philanthropist ILSA PUCCI (new series regular Indira Varma), who needs his protection after the mysterious murder of her husband. While on assignment, the team encounters AMES (new cast member Janet Montgomery), a beautiful, chameleon-like thief who has a past connection to Winston.

HUMAN TARGET returns to Wednesdays, where last season it ranked No. 1 in its 8:00-9:00 PM time period among Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54, Teens and Total Viewers.

Based on the DC Comics comic book and graphic novel, HUMAN TARGET is a full-throttle action drama centered on a unique personal security expert hired to shield those in danger from an imminent threat that cannot be solved through normal means of protection.

    I love Human Target. It is the best show on televisoin. Hopefully, it will return to its regular time slot next week. It’s been difficult trying to determine when it will be on. Please renew it for next season.

    Human target had become my favorite show. I agree with the addition of the new characters. It gives the show more complexity while still maintaining it’s action draw. The Wednesday time slot was perfect for the show. Moving it to Friday was a big mistake. However, if I’m unable to see it on Friday, I record it and watch it later. With that said, I must say that canceling the show would be an even bigger mistake. DO NOT CANCEL.

    I love human target. Best show on tv. Action packed but not trashy. Liked it better last season before expanding the cast. Too many cast members. Not enough time on Mark Valley .

    We like some others were very DISAPPOINTED that we lost the Human Target programming on Wed. It was the only show that we really looked forward to on Wed. or any other night for that matter. It was so well written and the actors
    were perfect for their characters!!! PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL

    Of all the shows that are on Fox, Human Target had not only romance, total action, great casting, but humor all rolled into a fantastic show. Who would not want to watch Mark Valley every week. He was great in Boston Legal and Human Target is fabulous and so are all supporting actors. There is too much garbage that is left on TV season after season and then all the good shows like Human Target are moved around and canceled!
    I can’t wait to see another show to make a senior citizen happy every week!
