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.

This isn’t fair because now they’re canceling some of my MOST favorite tv shows such as The Carrie Diaries and now Twisted. I can’t believe it. They have to bring it back. There are people out there who actually like these shows, so why cancel it because other losers don’t like. Well I don’t care, all I want right now is for the producers to bring back twisted and they can’t just cut it short where everything was getting so good. I want more and I demand it now. Please.

Hell no! You can’t cancel the show after the best part of the whole season…it’s a great show and I loves watching it! And the people who don’t like it don’t have to watch it…..by canceling you are saying you don’t care about your fans because obviously there are lot of people who like it. On Netflix it had 5 stars as a rating and not a lot of shows get that.so you either show your care for your fans or you walk away but really don’t disappoint us. Thanks
