Twisted: Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

Twisted TV show on ABC FamilyLast year, ABC Family introduced three new dramas — Twisted, Ravenswood, and The Fosters. Ravenswood (a Pretty Little Liars spin-off) has been cancelled while The Fosters has been renewed. What will become of Twisted?

Airing on Tuesday nights, Twisted is a mystery/thriller series that revolves around 17 year old Danny Desai (Avan Jogia). Six years ago, he was charged with killing his aunt and he ended up spending five years in juvenile detention. Now, he’s been released and has returned to his small hometown in New York. As he tries to resume his life, a classmate is killed and Danny becomes a key suspect. The cast also includes Madelaine Hasson, Kylie Bunbury, Ashton Moio, Kimberly Quinn, Denise Richards, and Sam Robards.

The pilot episode aired as a special preview in March 2013 and drew 1.19 million viewers. It wasn’t a great start but the ratings picked up when the regular season started in June. They quickly fell again but ABC Family ordered 10 additional episodes of Twisted anyway. That decision may have been influenced by the fact that they had recently cancelled Bunheads and The Lying Game.

When the second half of the season kicked off in February and viewership nearly hit a new low, despite the fact that it had popular Pretty Little Liars as a lead-in. Last week, when Twisted no longer had that strong lead-in, viewership hit an all-time low with just 726,000 viewers.

The second half of the season averaged 1.11 million viewers. Ravenswood was cancelled with higher viewership. Based on these numbers, it’s looking unlikely that ABC Family will order a second season of Twisted.

But, what do you think? Are you a fan? Should Twisted be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

8/13 update: ABC Family has cancelled Twisted after one season.

Twisted is a show that most definitely has to come back.There is no way you can just cancel an amazing show like this .we haven’t even found out who Charlie really is yet.you can’t just cancel the show with a cliff hanger like that.now I love abc family but this network has cancelled too many amazing shows such as Designed By Jane, RavensWood, and now maybe even Twisted.Afterwhile nobodies going to watch this channel because you guys cancel way to many good shows.Atleast give us(the viewers) the chance to say if we don’t like a show or not.TWISTED HAS TO COME BACK.

If twisted did a novel or a book series about who’s the person behind the regain cran and aun tara’s accidents. I would be much happier if the producers re change their twisted series just like chasing life

What should be done is have a second season if ratings don’t rise after two episodes then have a plot to end the show not let everyone hanging like you’ll did with lying game
