Last summer, CBS had high hopes for Extant but the show didn’t do very well in the ratings. They renewed it (in part becuase of a streaming deal with Amazon) but a lot of changes were made behind and in front of the camera. Were the changes a good idea? Will Extant be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Extant, began when astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) returned to Earth after a year-long solo mission in outer space. Her reunion with her family is thrown into turmoil when it’s learned that she’s pregnant. This season, the cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Pierce Gagnon, Grace Gummer, and David Morrissey.
