CBS recently dropped Stalker from their schedule and replaced it with a new TV show, CSI: Cyber. Now, there’s word that it’s coming back on the air — but for how long?
A cop thriller, Stalker follows the work of the LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit, a team that investigates incidents of stalking. The TV show stars Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q, Victor Rasuk, and Mariana Klaveno.
After airing 17 of the show’s first season episodes, CBS took Stalker off the air. However, according to star Maggie Q, fans will get a chance to see the remaining episodes. She recently tweeted, “That’s a wrap on Stalker Season 1! We are back on the air at the end of the month! Thank you so much for your support!”
So far, there’s been no official word from the network regarding the unaired episodes. That seems a little unusual considering there’s less than two weeks left in the March.
While it’s good news that viewers will (hopefully) get a chance to see the remaining unaired episodes, it doesn’t change the fact that Stalker’s unlikely to be renewed for a second season. The ratings have been a disappointment at best and, so far, CSI: Cyber’s been doing much better in the same timeslot.
What do you think? Will you be watching the remaining episodes of Stalker — whenever they air? Do you think the series should be cancelled or renewed?
4/1 update: Stalker returns on May 4th. Details here.
