Mercy: TV Show Cancelled by NBC; No Season Two

Mercy canceledAt the start of the season, we wondered which new NBC medical drama had the best chance at survival — Mercy or Trauma. It was hard to decide but now, they’ve both been cancelled anyway.

Mercy follows the lives of three very different nurses at Mercy Hospital in Jersey City. The cast includes Taylor Schilling, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Michelle Trachtenberg, James Tupper, Diego Klattenhoff, Guillermo Diaz, James LeGros, James Van Der Beek, and Delroy Lindo.

The medical drama got off to a pretty poor start last September, attracting a 2.3 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic and 8.25 million total viewers. Unfortunately, viewership fell even lower from there.

Despite the ratings, NBC ordered a full season of episodes, likely because the network needed the original programming. Though NBC’s Primetime Entertainment President Angela Bromstad said she liked the show creatively, she noted that the show’s ratings had to improve for it to survive.

The ratings didn’t improve. The most recent episode attracted only a 1.1 rating in the demo and 4.01 million viewers.

To no surprise, the Mercy TV show’s now been cancelled. The 22nd and final episode aired last Wednesday, May 12th. Unfortunately, it wasn’t intended to be a series finale and didn’t wrap up the show.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Mercy won’t be back for season two? What would you have liked to have seen happen?

I really liked the show!characters were so interesting! why not promote these
types of series a bit more then all those reality shows..
maybe our teenagers would want to become nurses and docters again instead of walking around with loads of make up and idolizing silly people…

Unbelievable! Cancelled!? I loved it. And you’re telling me the rest of the planet didn’t? I can’t believe those who loved it are in the minority. So much for good taste. So sad.

I’m so disappointed to find after researching the web, that season1 of mercy was the final episodes to my horror, there is not going to be season2 out, someone decided to cancel. I so looked forward to watching the tv series, I found it funny , inspiring, fantastic acting and what a shame how it ended now that’s frustrating!!. It’s a must you need to do a season2.

Was really looking forward to watching more episodes of Mercy.
The cliff-hanger episode of season one was a terrible way to end the show.
