E!’s stock-in-trade includes reality TV series and entertainment-related programming, but in the last few years, the cable network has worked to establish itself in the scripted arena, first with The Royals and then last year with The Arrangement. While the drama hasn’t exactly rocked the Nielsen ratings, it did develop an enthusiastic fanbase during its freshman outing. Now the trick is to bring them back and build on that base. Do fans still care about Megan and Kyle? Will The Arrangement TV show be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A love story, The Arrangement stars Josh Henderson, Christine Evangelista, Michael Vartan, Lexa Doig, Carra Patterson, Autum Reeser, Katharine Isabelle, Courtney Paige, and Jacob Artist. The E! TV series follows struggling actress Megan Morrison (Evangelista) who enters into a relationship contract with superstar Kyle West (Henderson), a devotee of the Institute of the Higher Mind (IHM). When Kyle and Megan actually fall for each other, it complicates their relationship. Soon, secrets from their past threaten their love and their arrangement. Toward the end of the first season, Megan was kidnapped by IHM and confined to the Facility, until she submitted to the cult. In season two, she and Kyle struggle to reconnect as they plan their big wedding.
