Red Widow: To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

Red Widow to be canceled or renewed?Tonight marks the season finale of Red Widow since ABC ordered just eight episodes of the series. Is this the end? Will the drama be back for a second season or will it be cancelled instead?

For those unfamiliar with the show, Red Widow revolves around a San Francisco housewife and mother who finds herself forced to continue her husband’s work in organized crime after his death. The large cast includes Radha Mitchell, Clifton Collins Jr., Luke Goss, Sterling Beaumon, Suleka Mathew, Erin Moriarty, Jaime Ray Newman, Jakob Salvati, Lee Tergesen, Wil Traval, Rade Serbedzija, and Goran Visnjic.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing a second season renewal for Red Widow. The show’s ratings were poor at the start — debuting to a 1.5 demo rating with 7.13 million viewers — and have gotten a lot worse as the weeks have worn on.

Last week’s numbers fell to a new low — a 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic with 3.47 million total viewers. Red Widow is one of the lowest-rated shows on the network, ensuring that ABC won’t be bringing it back next season.

But, what do you think? Should ABC renew the drama or are they justified in cancelling it? Are you satisfied with the last episode? How would you wrap up the storylines?

I was a late watcher. Did On Demand to catch up but this show is good. DON’T CANCEL!! Next season, the starter could be where they left off, little girl holding gun on Schiller. You would still have story lines with Kat and the officer. What will now happen with Schiller and Mara and other mob family targeting both. Just give it a chance and do more advertising of show.

The best series I have ever watched. After the second episode, I couldn’t wait for the next one. I believe if another series comes out there will be better ratings. Please bring it back!

I want to see what happens next so please don’t cancel. Also I want Schiller and Marta to get together. Finally if you do cancel it I will never watch from the ABC channel ever again in my life, and i will make a group of these certain that will never watch your channel if you cancel Red Widow.
