Limitless airs its season one finale tonight. But what’s next? Recently, executive producer Craig Sweeny spoke to IGN about the finale and season two of the CBS series.
Limitless stars Jake McDorman as Brian Finch, a slacker who becomes an FBI guinea pig for a new drug that enhances his brain’s abilities. Jennifer Carpenter, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Hill Harper, and Colin Salmon also star.
In the interview, Sweeny said the end of season one will feel complete:
I did not want to create something where you watch it and go, “That was not a complete chapter of a larger whole.” My goal has always been to tell a complete story in Season 1 and a complete story in Season 2 and tell a complete story for every season that we get, so that eventually you have chapters that feel like complete seasons. So we will have essentially told the story of Sands and what it means for Brian the character to have faced not just one but multiple adversaries who are on NZT.”
When asked about the next season, he said it will feature some changes:
So, we’re going to make some changes to the show, but it will remain essentially — we do find a way for it to be Brian taking NZT working with Rebecca and Boyle and a couple new members on the team, solving crimes and having fun a week-to-week basis. So despite the current state of things at the end of “Finale: Part One!” at the end of the season, we are in a different place, but not as radically different as it feels like what we’re in right now.”
CBS has not officially renewed Limitless for a second season yet. The season one finale airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
What do you think? Do you watch Limitless? Do you think it will be renewed? What do you hope happens in the finale?
Please bring it back. I usually don’t watch any of your shows but this one is one of my favorites. You can make it happen. I would pay to watch this show if necessary.
I have not been interested in a TV series for over 15 years and when I found this one it clicked with me and can’t understand why a brilliant idea such as this would get canceled. There could have been so many avenues this show could have explored, and it captured the higher mind every time I watched it. This is a story worth expanding…
My husband and I love to watch Limitless. We will be very disappointed if it doesn’t continue?
I am not a big tv-watcher, but this series had me highly anxious for each subsequent episode. Please renew for Season 2 and beyond!
To the CBS head honchos. I was totally on the edge of my seat during each episode, wondering what is next? Please renew this show indefinitely. The story is worth the watch and it makes me dream a little of how life could be with Limitless for the average guy or gal.
Why is it when I love a show, it gets canceled? Ok, I love Donald Trump. Can you cancel him too?
The best laid plans of mice and men.
Great show, please renew.
GREAT SHOW! GIVE IT A 2ND SEASON!

Renew it. It’s the only show I like on the network.
