Ravenswood: Cancelled, No Season Two for ABC Family Series

Ravenswood canceledABC Family has cancelled Ravenswood after one short season of 10 episodes. Though Pretty Little Liars is the cable channel’s biggest scripted series, the spin-off just never caught on.

Ravenswood follows a group of five young strangers who find their lives intertwined thanks to a deadly curse in a small Pennsylvania town. The cast includes Tyler Blackburn, Nicole Anderson, Britne Oldford, Brett Dier, Merritt Patterson, and Steven Cabral.

Debuting in late October, Ravenswood’s first episode drew a healthy 2.12 million viewers. However, many viewers must not have liked what they saw because only half as many tuned in for the second episode.

The cable channel tried to give the series a fighting chance by putting it on hiatus over the holidays and then by pairing it with Liars. That gave the show an initial boost but viewers fled once again the following week. The 10 episode season ended up averaging 1.29 million viewers.

The defacto series finale aired on February 4th.

What do you think? Did you like Ravenswood? Are you sorry there won’t be a second season?

Ravenswood was a great idea but some of the actors selected I think is what ruined the series. Except for Tyler Blackburn (Kaleb) the other teenagers just didn’t seem to have their heart in their parts ESP the male actor that played the boyfriend of the sis/brother combo, he seemed cheesy. I wish they could’ve added one more episode to end the series
Properly instead of leaving viewers hanging & upset that it was canceled.

I really dont understand why they cancelled it. They said that in episode 10 there was 1.29 million viewers, isn´t that enough ?
I´m from Denmark and Me and 6 of my friends have all seen the series and do not understand why they suddenly cancelled it. We are 6 in a group of friends so there may well be many others here in Denmark, which also has seen it and definitely want to see more.
so please come with a second season, there is certainly Danish support.

Such a shame. So disappointed in another great show dismissed.

I can’t believe its been cancelled, every time there a good series on the producers cancel it, you should leave it up to the viewers to decide. We don’t get many good series in the UK like this so its very disappointing when this happens. You should at least tie the loose ends with a few extra episode’s to give the series closure

Hi Linda. I was just wondering what you meant by you don’t get many good series in the UK like this. Do you mean you don’t have many supernatural type shows? I do watch a lot of British shows which I get off a particular site, but most of them are detective type shows, like Jonathan Creek or maybe, Inspector Lovely, Father Brown, Broadchurch, Copper, Ripper etc. I do enjoy the British shows a lot. But you had a couple supernatural type shows which I watched recently (can’t remember the names right now) and they were good. I do think the UK has good shows even like Ravenswood, but yes, I too wanted Ravenswood back. I’m sure it’s too late now and it’s not gonna happen though. :(

Solution for the ABC Family people who lacked viewers on Ravenswood. When you finish pretty little liars bring back ravenswood but try to restart everything.

I wish they would have made just made 1 extra episode to give us complete closure! It’s very upsetting not knowing all the details.

I can’t believe that there won’t be another season! I liked Ravenswood. The way they introduced the spin off was well thought out and planned. I would like to have seen where they were going to take it.
