Those Who Kill: A&E Drama Pulled; Cancelled?

Those Who Kill pulled; cancelled?A&E has dropped Chloe Sevigny’s drama Those Who Kill from their schedule after two episodes.

Those Who Kill revolves around homicide detective Catherine Jensen (Sevigny) and academic forensic psychologist Thomas Schaeffer (James D’Arcy) who work to solve crimes in Pittsburgh. Others in the cast include James Morrison, Omid Abtahi, Kerry O’Malley, Bruce Davison, Kathy Baker, Michael Rispoli, and Anne Dudek.

The new detective series debuted to 1.4 million viewers. That was less than half of its lead-in, Bates Motel, whose second season premiere drew 3.07 million. Then, in week two, just 830,000 tuned in to watch Kill.

Now that Those Who Kill has been pulled, the cable channel will shift Bates Motel to the 10pm timeslot. A rerun will air at 9pm.

Though the ratings for Kill have been very poor, A&E hasn’t cancelled it. Though things certainly don’t look good, they reportedly believe in the show and want to find another timeslot where it can build an audience. That day/time will be determined later. There are eight unaired episodes remaining.

What do you think? Do you like Those Who Kill? Will you watch when it returns or, do you think it should be cancelled?

Canceled and renewed TV show

    My adult children and I really loved TWK and I have to agree with some of the other
    commentators- why remove a very good program! Yes- there are some lousy programs that remain on air. We are not interested in dance, singing or dumb down sitcoms. We ;like to sit and watch well written drama. PLEASE BRING BACK OR FINISH SHOWING THE UNAIRED EPISODES!!!

    I can’t believe all the dumb reality shows & reruns on A&E & Lifetime and you cancel this great series!

    I love the series “those who kill” so much its a breath of fresh air combining the very best elements of ‘lie to me’, ‘criminal minds’ and ‘csi’ all into one. Please make a season two my entire family (several households) is hooked.

    My daughter downloaded the first episode onto my Ipad and I watched it 3 weeks ago. I love it! I never knew it existed ! It will definitely be a hit but no one knew about it. the network needs to advertise more. I hope it comes back. I need to see that 2nd episode !!!
