The crime drama follows Detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis) as she investigates a new murder mystery each season. The season two cast included Michael Ealy, Jordana Brewster, Mekia Cox, Charlie Barnett, Kenny Johnson, Terry O’Quinn, and AnnaLynne McCord.
Speaking to reporters at this week’s Television Critics Association press tour, Dungey said a season three of Secrets & Lies is unlikely:
I love Secrets & Lies, but I think it’s probably less likely (for the show to come back). The bummer for me is, I actually held it for the fall. When I stepped into this role and saw the creative, I actually thought it was really strong and I said, we should hold it til the fall and give it the best opportunity. I wish that it had been last year in the season. It was off the air for too long to have held its audience.”
Season two of the ABC drama, which ended in December, earned an average rating of .76 in the 18-49 demo and a total of only 3.260 million viewers. For comparison, season one received an average rating of 1.50 in the 18-49 demo and a total of 5.66 million viewers.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Secrets & Lies? Do you think ABC should renew the drama?
