Are you a devoted viewer of NBC’s Persons Unknown? If you end up watching all 13 episodes, you have to be.
Persons Unknown follows the challenges of a group of strangers who wake up in a ghost town and are unable to leave. The series features Chadwick Boseman, Lee Purcell, Jason Wiles, Andy Greenfield, Daisy Betts, Tina Holmes, Alan Ruck, Kate Lang Johnson, Sean O’Bryan, and Gerald Kyd.
After five weeks of poor ratings, NBC moved the series from Mondays to the “TV graveyard,” Saturday nights. The show’s been airing there for four weeks but some viewers have been understandably worried that the network won’t air all episodes of the mystery series.
It turns out their fears weren’t unwarranted. There are just four episodes left but that’s plenty of time to mess with the schedule.
As previously planned, Persons Unknown won’t air tonight and the network will instead run sports programming. The TV show will return next week with episode 10 (“Identity”). Some time after that, episode 11 (“Seven Sacrifice”), will be posted online.
The following week, on August 28th, NBC will air the final two installments; “And Then There Was One” and “Shadows in the Cave.”
Confused? Maybe the NBC programmers want to give viewers a taste of what the characters on Persons Unknown are going through.
