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?

My husband and I are from South Africa and just only now watched season 1 of No ordinary family. It was completely awesome. I feel lost now that it’s done. So sad to hear that it was cancelled. Could you pretty please continue it?

There are quite a few MILLION people out there that enjoyed it.

I thought this show was much better than most of the crap on tv. Probably would have been a successful series if ABC didn’t get their hands on it. They’ve been the “generic” version of a tv station for far too many years. Very curious what would have happened with a successful network backing them

No Ordinary Family, is a great show, i love it! Please bring it back. Season 2 will be amazing. :)

To those who made the show possible, I hope you see this.

You mentioned that the numbers kept declining, but at the time tv shows were ordinary, they had no special effects or weird and wonderful. Now we have shows about kids being wolves (Teen Wolf), vampires (Vampire Diaries) and all other kinds of supernatural beings.

I know that No Ordinary Family shows similarity to the show Heroes, which also got cancelled, I feel that, because this family has been sought out by the government, to help the government people may be more interesting, truth be told there will be more of a story line, where as the first season clearly lacked that. In the second season we could see that the possible story line involves the family saving the world from the ‘badies’.. its gives us something to follow.

Please feel free to email me :)

I am a boy from Nepal and I stayed up late just to watch this show. I really loved it. I am still waiting for the season two. Its been more than 3 years. Wish they would put up season 2

No ordinary family was a great show, it still could be an even better show. People who did watch the show loved it and were expecting a season 2, seen as it was left on a clif hanger, with the government needing the Powell family’s help. I think that all the people who did watch this great show would love to see what challenges the Powell has to face with the new super villains, in an all new season two.
