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?

DON’T CANCEL RED WIDOW. IF YOU DO, THAT IS NO WAY TO END IT WITH A CLIFFHANGER AND NOT REALLY FINISHING IT IN A WAY WE CAN ALL ACCEPT. WE HAVE REALLY ENJOYED WATCHING THIS SHOW. IF THAT WAS THE LAST SHOW THIS SEASON THEN DO AT LEAST ONE MORE SHOW TO END IT RIGHT.

I like this show very much. Am sad to see it not renewed. Maybe a smarter network will pick it up like how TNT did with “Cougartown”…which is doing great and has been renewed. I can only hope.

Please don’t cancel show. It is getting better but if you have to cancel at least end it with an ending that we can at least enjoy watching. I am getting tired of my favorite shows getting cancelled and not having an ending instead of cliff hangers.
