To no surprise, the network cut the show’s episode order, down from 13 to 10 installments. The season will wrap on November 30th. While FOX hasn’t called this move a cancellation, it’s clear that the series won’t be back next year.
Despite this bad news, Minority Report executive producer Max Borenstein is still hoping that the series can be renewed for a second season. If it isn’t, he believes fans will feel satisfied by the defacto series finale. Via TV Line:
Speaking of being done, given the show’s shortened season order, one can’t help but wonder if the finale will also act as a fulfilling conclusion.
“Yeah, absolutely,” Borenstein assures us. “We always had this 10-episode arc in mind because we were always airing 10 episodes [this fall]. We have a really cool, satisfying ending, and if we get to do a second season, we’ll pick it up from there. But if we don’t, it’ll be a great ending regardless.”
What do you think? Do you think that Minority Report has been essentially cancelled? Would you watch a second season?
