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?

    One of the best “thinking man’s” shows out there. Other seasons need to be made even if it is put out on the internet. It’s ratings are low only because many people don’t know about it.

    We have been waiting all summer for Rubicon to return. It was one series, along with The Killing that we looked forward to watching. Please bring it back.

    PLEASE bring it back! It was one of my top 3 favorite shows. Brilliant concept and acting, and it was not the typical loud, violent ADD conspiracy nonsence.

    Bring it back. It is one of my favorites along with Breaking Bad. Just an excellent program. By the way this is one of the few things my wife and I agree. Remember JAG, well they wish they had listened to me then.

    I can’t believe there isn’t going to be a season 2…..AMC had a real chance for another mega hit, if they just gave it a chance. “If you produce it they will watch”…lol. I guess it just goes to show that the majority of the viewing public are, for the most part, a bunch of reality TV douchebags or /doctor/cop/ghost drama losers.

    I was slow to tune in to Rubicon and sorry I waited so long, which is what may have happened to many other people out there. Following so close behind Mad Men was a disservice to the show, which was far mor interesting, thought-provoking and relevant to our lives. Please bring it back and give people another opportunity to discover how great the show was and will no doubt continue to be.

    Too bad this show wasn’t given the opportunity to get going. Terrific show, wonderful cast, thought-provoking scripts & just plain fun.
    Hopefully this will get picked up by another network.

    Enjoyed this show a lot, great cast and story. I was just starting to get comfortable with it in my regular viewing. ‘Would like to see it return.

    I really enjoyed the first season of “Rubicon”. The reason: intelligence gathering similar
    to NSA work. I don’t think the intel facility was attached to NSA, but perhaps another
    agency such as CIA or DIA. Regardless, the cast was marvelous and I certainly hope that
    it will come back, perhaps with a newer, fresher story line. It seems that the first season
    ended with the director getting nailed, as he should have. I’m sure the writers can work
    on new projects for the second season.

    was great show, “thinking” show, so, all the speed and diet pills junkie couldn’t watch. I think rerun be nice.

    Bring back Rubicon! I really enjoyed Rubicon season one on AMC. I hope it gets picked up by AMC or another network. It was subtle and yet directly addressed our in-your-face post 9-11 fears. No complaints from me. I’d welcome Rubicon back.
