NBC is billing The Slap as a mini-series so it doesn’t seem like there’s any danger of the series being cancelled. However, if the ratings are bad enough, they could certainly pull it before all eight episodes have aired. Conversely, if the ratings are really good, they could figure out a way to bring the characters back for a second season. What will happen? Stay tuned.
On The Slap TV show, a birthday celebration comes to an abrupt halt when a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. It’s a small action that ends up deeply affecting all involved. The cast for the mini-series includes Peter Sarsgaard, Thandie Newton, Uma Thurman, Makenzie Leigh, Zachary Quinto, Dylan Schombing, Thomas Sadoski, Melissa George, Brian Cox, Lucas Hedges, Maria Tucci, Marin Ireland, and Penn Badgley.
