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.

      T I agree with you twisted should be renewed for a second season but you need to know that the abc family doesn’t like how the raitings are on the twisted series it only got 1million of people watching it and when they did the final episode at the end it should’ve got 1.77 viewers watching it and there was a cliff hanger with it and that got 0.77 and that means it got 0.3 and was heading to cancellation bear but the cancellation bear didn’t want to do anything with canceling twisted so be surprise if it gets renewed but if it doesn’t how would you feel

    Twisted is an excellent show and it needs to be continued. It has just gotten interesting, so we should go for a season 2 in my opinion.

    Ok you shouldn’t cancel Twisted or The Fosters! No one gives a care about Ravenswood! You already have PPL, you don’t need another stupid show about the mystery of who knows what persons death! So don’t cancel The Fosters and don’t cancel Twisted, because people have gotten attached to the show!

  8. T says
