In the past few years, ABC has had some trouble establishing drama series for more than a season or two. This year, the Alphabet Network started a helpful course of treatment with The Good Doctor, which did well enough in the Nielsen ratings to garner a second season renewal. Other freshman dramas like Deception and Marvel’s Inhumans haven’t fared so well and are in danger of cancellation. Now they’ve introduced The Crossing TV show. Which course will this new thriller follow? Will The Crossing be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC sci-fi TV series, The Crossing stars Steve Zahn, Natalie Martinez, Sandrine Holt, Georgina Haig, Tommy Bastow, Rob Campbell, Rick Gomez, Marcuis W. Harris, Grant Harvey, Jay Karnes, Simone Kessell, Kelley Missal, Luc Roderique, and Bailey Skodje. Luke Camilleri recurs in the first season. The story unfolds in the small Oregon fishing town of Port Canaan. Tranquility there comes to an abrupt end, when 47 evacuees from a war-torn country wash up on the shore. The newcomers aren’t just any refugees seeking asylum — they’re Americans from 180 years in the future. As the hunt for the truth grows, it will change the lives of the townies and their new guests, forever.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
