Should NBC return to the Land of Oz? The network’s freshman series Emerald City just ended its first season on March 3rd, but should it be renewed for second two?
Based on the books by L. Frank Baum, the Emerald City fantasy drama follows Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona), a young woman who is transported from Kansas to a mystical and mysterious land called “Oz.” The cast also includes Vincent D’Onofrio, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Gerran Howell, Jordan Loughran, and Joely Richardson.
Season one of Emerald City debuted on January 6th to low ratings, earning a 1.00 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4.485 million viewers. From there, the numbers declined further. It would seem that viewer interest was waning. The show’s first season only managed to average a 0.72 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.02 million viewers — making it the lowest-rated new series on NBC.
What do you think? Should NBC return to Emerald City for a second season or should it be cancelled? Would you watch season two?
