What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC reality TV series from Grant Kahler, Castaways aims to test the “human need for companionship under extreme circumstances.” The new series, with a premise that feels like a mashup of Survivor and Lost, follows real people who have been dropped off, each seemingly alone, to survive on small Indonesian islands. While they don’t know it, along the way, each will learn there are “others” like them nearby. The series also includes flashbacks to the participants’ pre-island lives.
Season One Ratings
Will ABC cancel or renew Castaways for season two? The ratings are quite low so I suspect this new series will be cancelled. There are also a few twists in the concept of the show (like participants not knowing they aren’t the only ones on the island) so producers would likely have to rework how the series works if they did make a second season. I’ll keep an eye on breaking developments and will update this page as needed. Subscribe for free alerts on Castaways cancellation or renewal news.
Status update: The series last aired in September 2018 and there’s been no renewal news more than a year later. It’s presumed to be cancelled.
