Debris aired its first season finale on Monday, and the future of the series is still up in the air. With the finale ending with a cliffhanger, viewers are wondering if the series will return.
Both the creator of the NBC series, J.H. Wyman, and the star of the sci-fi drama, Jonathan Tucker, spoke about the future of the series with Deadline.
Wyman said the following about the choice to end the season with a cliffhanger:
“You know, it’s like, yeah, we always say that, but the first season of a show is always supposed to be an origin story, and that people are supposed to grab the handlebars and say now what the show is, okay, I get it. But then, we’re supposed to recontextualize it as you move forward, and, it’s no mistake that Sebastian Roché’s last line is, plays the character of Brill, is, “Let’s begin,” because it’s supposed to just completely change your expectations, and realize there’s so much more to come.”
Tucker was also positive about the future of Debris. He said the following:
“The smartest leaders in business invest in people over ideas, and while Debris is a great idea, it’s run by an even better person. And you know, when you are in, again, probably any business, but I can speak specifically to the creative endeavor of entertainment, you have to take a leap of faith with people, and you take a leap of faith with the machines, with your acting partners, and the crew that comes together.”
If the show is cancelled, Wyman says:
Well, if the worst case is to happen, that, they decide that they weren’t going to continue this, I would look for other avenues to continue telling this story, because I think that the story itself is really a story worth writing about, and so much more to tell.
I would say that, that even if it didn’t work out at NBC, I would try to get it somewhere somehow., I really believe in the show, and I love, love, love my fans. I love the people that believe in this work, and last thing, and I want to give them something that they enjoy.
It is not known when NBC will make a decision about the future of the sci-fi series.
What do you think? Do you want to see a second season of Debris on NBC? Would you watch the show on a different channel or service?
I never reply to these things, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can some other company pick this up and do more seasons. It was a great, intelligent show
Please keep trying to find a home for this show!, I don’t get excited for television much anymore, so much stupid or repetitive stuff , and the good shows never seem to make it!
I loved this show before it even started!, watched every episode, now I am left heartbroken,,,,please keep going!
I’ve never before replied to a comment section for a tv series. That’s how disappointed I am to lose this smart, compelling show. It’s mysterious and intriguing without ever being frustrating or facetious. And the overarching commentaries about governments, science and how they impact humanity – and how much trust we place in them – are refreshingly thoughtful, and thought provoking. Please, please reconsider this cancellation.
We need good sci fi shows like Debris. NBC needs to promote shows, not hope people just find them.
YES PLEASE KEEP THIS SHOW IT WAS VERY WELL PLOTTED AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN STRANGE LIKE THIS BEFOR LOVE WATCHING IT AY NIGHT PLEASE RECONSIDER.
I would love a second season, id not NBC then maybe on Amazon or something. It reminds me of Fringe which I loves. There are so many crap reality show and stupid things like that out there, we need good scifi shows
This show has a hold on me like no other. I actually started to like Mondays because of it. That’s some powerful stuff!
Yes, PLEEEEEZE continue with Debris series! Especially awesome that John Noble (Fringe) appeared
Very interesting show but NBC isn’t known for keeping interesting shows if the ratings aren’t high. See Revolution and The Enemy Within. I’d like to see Debris back but am not hopeful it will be renewed.
Absolutely….bring it back. Loved it.
I love Debris please bring it back for a second season it has good ratings my Dad said he likes the show two
This is by far the best show I’ve seen on tv in a long long time! It’s got a bit of an Xfiles feel but the potential to even be greater! Please, please, please don’t make the mistake of canceling this show! I’m totally hooked and want to see where it goes! Love the stories, the actors, everything about it!
I really hope it returns. I love sci-fi. Look to the stars for renewed hope.
Yes I enjoy this show. Please NBC renew the series
I absolutely LOVE Debris The depth of the characters, amazing storyline and terrific actors keep me wanting more. Please bring Debris back for Season 2, hoping for many more seasons
