France’s TF1 and Sony Pictures Television Networks have renewed Crossing Lines for a second season.
There will be 12 episodes this time around (vs 10 episodes in season one) and production will begin on September 22nd. Locations will include France, the Czech Republic, Monte Carlo and Bulgaria.
Regulars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Tom Wlaschiha, Gabriella Pession and Richard Flood will all return, along with Lara Rossi, who was introduced late in the first season. Guest stars will include Carrie-Anne Moss and Ray Stevenson.
Crossing Lines has been very popular internationally, airing in over 180 territories. It hasn’t been a big hit here in the states however.
NBC aired the series on Sunday nights this summer to poor ratings. The season finale registered just a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.06 million viewers — series lows.
The peacock network says that they haven’t made a decision on the future of the show on NBC. Unfortunately, based on the ratings, there’d be little incentive to license season two of Crossing Lines.
If they don’t pick it up, the show could find a US home on a cable channel, possibly one that’s owned by NBC-Universal like USA Network. Merlin underperformed on NBC in its first year so it was moved to Syfy for the later four seasons.
What do you think? Should NBC pick up season two of Crossing Lines or cancel the low-rated series instead? Would you watch it on a cable channel like USA?
YE S. YeS. YeS
yes i watched reruns great show
Yes, an excellent program. Too little of it’s kind on TV today. Please bring it back but not on Netflix.
Just started watching it on Netflix and absolutely love it! Recommended it to my daughter and her boyfriend…please keep it!
This was a great show. Bring it back. USA would be great place for it
Good show. Please renew!
Netflix so far has not committed to renewing the series (for season 4). I found the new characters from Season 3 to be just as interesting as the original characters from S1 & 2. Sebastian stayed for all 3 seasons (yay!) I really missed the characters from the first 2 seasons but once season 3 got rolling, I was fine with the new characters. I really hope Netflix will give season 4 a go but with their delay in posting an announcement about it, I would guess we’re waiting for its demise. Season 3 ended with very little cliffhanger.

Love this show! Keep the stories coming! What channel do I watch for the new season?
The tv show is so great .love the show
Show was great first two seasons! But what happened to the original actors in season three?????
What idiot at NBC decided not to renew this series? Hope they were fired. This is the best series I have seen in years and the actors are wonderful. Hope this gets picked up!
Great program, involved plots and a cohesive cast. Hoping for a season 4. More please, any network!
Really like the show., cast and concept. Hope they keep it on for more seasons.
This is a Bernero show, so it goes without saying that it is an excellent one. Three seasons are not enough to build the whole story arch, so it should have more seasons, the settings are captivating which adds to the appeal. I’m a viewer from Doha, btw, in the MEast, and the show has fans here. Kind of unfair for all the other viewer groups for the series to not continue just because it was not a hit in the US. I mean, viewers from 180 territories are not enough for you to renew?
Perhaps the reason Crossing Lines didn’t do well in the states is because NBC seems to have kept it a secret. My spouse and I recently found it on Netflix and are really enjoying it. We had never heard of it until we discovered it on Netflix.
