Rubicon: AMC Drama Secretly Renewed for Season Two?

RubiconThe AMC series has not been performing well in the ratings but, according to a listing in the Backstage industry casting paper, Rubicon has been renewed for year two. Here’s their info:

Rubicon (Drama, AMC) A think-tank analyst comes to the realization that his colleagues are not who he thought they were and may be a part of a covert organization secretly manipulating world politics and affairs. James Badge Dale stars. Casting: Avy Kaufman Casting, 180 Varick St., 16th Fl., New York, NY 10014. Premiered Aug. 1. Renewed.

Last Sunday’s episode attracted just a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 997,000 total viewers. That pales when compared to AMC’s Mad Men which scored a 0.6 demo rating and 2.1 million viewers.

The Backstage listing seems like it’s most likely a typo or error because, for now, they seem to be the only one saying there will be another year.

The season finale of Rubicon, “You Can Never Win,” is set to air next Sunday on AMC.

What do you think? Would you like to see Rubicon return for another year or should it be cancelled?

    I am throughly dissapointed to find that “Rubicon” has been deemed unworthy of a second season. It was one of the best series on TV for some time. The story lines were always “gripping”. What was wrong with it?? Perhaps it was too good, they needed an audience that thought about the plots as they unfolded. When you consider the rubbish crime shows aired now, like “Bones” …………… They throw in a good looking woman and that is supposed to make up for the fact they are so totally unbelieveable. I think “Body of Proof” takes the biscuit. The coroner running around in 5″ heels with a handbag she should wear over her head, to hide that smug face that suggests she thinks she’s an actress

    I absolutely loved Rubicon and was excitedly waiting for season 2. I was so surprised whan I found out it was cancelled for lack of ratings. I couldn’t believe people weren’t watching the show. Maybe is wasn’t marketed or advertised enough.
