FOX had high hopes for their Minority Report TV series but the series received poor reviews and very low ratings in its debut. The numbers have gotten much worse, week by week.
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?
love this show. It’s a very great show indeed. And I don’t understand why it should be cancelled… All the visions and investigations are great and merhn I love the technology. Please continue through season 2 and beyond and just spice up the market a bit. And trust me it’s gonna be one of the top most series in the world… Wish I could be in it though. Nice job with this series… It’s great
