Despite having some awful ratings, ABC has renewed their fairy-tale musical comedy series Galavant for a second season.
On Galavant, a dashing hero (Joshua Sasse) once lost the love of his life (Mallory Jansen) to an evil king (Timothy Omundson). It’s now time for him to exact his revenge and restore his “happily ever after” — while singing. The rest of the cast includes Vinnie Jones, Karen David, Luke Youngblood, Ben Presley, Daniel Evans, Stanley Townsend, and Genevieve Allenbury.
The series debuted well with a 2.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.42 million viewers. In week two, the ratings plunged 38-45%. In week three, they dropped another 17-30%, falling to a 0.88 demo rating with 3.42 million. The numbers bumped up to a 1.09 rating with 4.37 million for the fourth and final week.
Galavant is a unique series however and adds some variety to ABC’s schedule. With another limited run expected, that would seem to be a major reason for the show’s second season renewal.
What do you think? Do you like the Galavant TV series? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a second season or, do you think it should have been cancelled instead?
