Perception: Eric McCormack Show Gets Third Season

PERCEPTION season threeTNT has ordered a third season of Perception, their crime drama that stars Eric McCormack and Rachael Leigh Cook.

Season two of Perception is still airing and has been averaging 3.49 million viewers each week. That’s down from last season’s average of 4.24 million. The sophomore series is still one of the cable channel’s biggest draws.

Perception will end its summer run on August 27th and then season two will return in early 2014. The 15 episodes that TNT has ordered for season three will launch in Summer 2014.

TNT has also renewed Major Crimes for a third season and Rizzoli & Isles will be back for a fifth season. The fates of Franklin & Bash and King & Maxwell are still uncertain.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Perception? Are you looking forward to the new episodes in 2014? What would you like to see happen next year?

    We love Perception. We look forward to every episode. A snippet of his lectures at the beginning and end are both quite enlightening and witty. Agree 100% that it is an intelligent show? Hope this keeps getting renewed. TNT has disappointed us once when they canceled Monday Mornings which was way better than the other medical show on ABC. Please do not disappoint us again

    Perception Has the potential to become a classic series. It’s one of the few intelligent
    shows that has been offered on television sites. NCIS has been a good example of longevity
    entertainment, but it does not have as much intellectual influence that Perception has.
    I guess I will stick to the science channels or maybe nature the nature channels. For
    entertainment I will watch the news.

    I just discovered the show Perception! It’s wonderful, the acting of a schizophrenic is unbelievable. I saw three shows and all the sudden that was it no more. Nothing takes it’s place. I am so disappointed. I tried finding it on Netflix and everywhere. Why can’t there at least be the past episodes on?
    When will the new season start? Today’s date is September 3, 2014.
    Please email me where and when I can watch this show. The content of the show, writing and especially Eric acting is excellent.
    Thank you,

    Preception is one of my favorite shows. If on a major network it woud have higher ratings. The sherlock homes show is a poor knock off of Preception.
