It’s official. ABC has announced they’ve cancelled Notorious after one season. Deadline confirmed the cancellation, last night.
The drama revolves around the symbiotic relationship between a charismatic defense attorney (Daniel Sunjata) and a powerhouse TV producer (Piper Perabo) as they attempt to control the media, the justice system, and each other. The cast also includes Kate Jennings Grant, Aimee Teegarden, J. August Richards, Sepideh Moafi, Ryan Guzman, and Kevin Zegers.
While it was never official, Notorious has been considered cancelled for some time. After the series debuted in September, ABC decided to cuts the episode order — not a good sign. Additionally, ratings were never good for the freshman drama.
Over the course of 10 episodes, Notorious averaged .86 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 3.972 million viewers, making it one of ABC’s least-watched and lowest-rated new series for the 2016-2017 season.
What do you think? Did you see season one of Notorious? Do you think ABC should’ve renewed the show?
