Although the My Last Days TV show was off the air for nearly two years, it wasn’t cancelled — it just seemed that way. Now the docu-series has returned to The CW for a second season of three weekly installments. Has the audience forgotten about it in its absence? Is a three-week run enough to woo back viewers? Will My Last Days be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A CW documentary TV series, My Last Days is hosted by Jane the Virgin co-star Justin Baldoni. The cameras follow courageous people facing one of life’s most difficult challenges — terminal illness. Their compelling stories serve as a reminder that we can make a positive impact upon the world, even in a limited amount of time. My Last Days season two features Anthony Carbajal, a street photographer living with ALS; former bodyguard and bouncer Bob Charland, who developed a neurodegenerative brain disease as a result of those jobs; Ellie Boloori Oben, a mother and community leader diagnosed with breast cancer; and Diane Nguyen, who was diagnosed with terminal leukemia in 2012 and told she only had eight months to live.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
