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 should have a second chance I’ve recently been watching it on Netflix , I really never considered watching it when it came out on ABC Family cause of Pretty Little Liars but Twisted is a great tv show I really want to know what happens after Episode 19 knowing that Tess is the mother of Charlie that’s a shocking news please consider putting Twisted Season 2

PLEaSE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW! Of coarse the ratings were low… ABC made it seem as if it were canceled. My DVR picked up the new season and that was the only way I knew about it. THANKFULLY I had seen a commercial about Twisted to let me know it was on again, so I had the opportunity to watch the missed episodes on my DVR. PLEASE do not cancel because of a mistake in advertisement. BECAUSE WE LOVE TWISTED!!! Thank you!
