No Ordinary Family: ABC TV Series Cancelled; No Season Two

No Ordinary Family canceled season twoThe Powells may have super powers but they weren’t strong enough to save their TV series. No Ordinary Family has been cancelled after one season on the air.

No Ordinary Family revolves around suburban family who, while on vacation, crash into Amazon River and gain special abilities. The cast includes Michael Chiklis, Julie Benz, Autumn Reeser, Jimmy Bennett, Kay Panabaker, Tate Donovan, Christina Chang, and Romany Malco.

The drama had a decent debut last September with a 3.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.69 million total viewers. Unfortunately, the ratings didn’t stay at that level and dropped by 16% in week two and then 15% in week three. The numbers kept declining and went as low as a 1.2 demo rating and just 4.26 million viewers in March.

Should No Ordinary Family have been cancelled?

The network cut the episode order but it was already clear by that point that the show was finished. ABC pre-empted one installment and bumped the penultimate episode to Saturday nights, an evening when few are watching. The first season of No Ordinary Family ended up averaging a 1.8 in the demo and 6.4 million viewers, making it one of the lowest dramas of the ABC season.

TV show supportABC has now officially cancelled No Ordinary Family. All 18 episodes have aired. Hopefully, at some point, the producers will share what they had planned for the future of the series.

What do you think? Are you disappointed that there won’t be a second season for No Ordinary Family? Why do you think the series didn’t catch on?

I dont care if some people think its just a tv show because who ever they are there dumb! Cancelling NOF is just putting people through pain and making people such as myself suffer and you guys are responsible! I hope your all proud of yourselves!

I agree

No Ordinary Family was a great show! It’s actually my favourite show. I disagree with it being canceled, I thought that the plot was great. I would’ve loved to have known what George’s power was. But the fact that it just left everyone hanging, including myself was a bummer. I loved all the characters in the show, they all played their characters very well. It would be nice to meet the cast, especially because I’m a huge fan of Jimmy Bennett! I hope that one day the cast will get back together and start the show up again, that’d be great:) More people should watch it, it’s honestly a great show, I find it so intriguing, suspenseful, and exciting. I love how the Powell family are faced with new powers everyday. Whoever decided to cancel the show is silly, in my opinion.

Why Is it that all the good programmes are canceled star-gate SG1 and Atlantis to name just two

I really need a season two, need to know what happens with George,the family, Kady and the baby.. Oh I wish it never went on TV here in Sweden then I would never have this trouble! I am totally obsessed with this show, pleas make a season two!
