Much of the summertime programming on The CW is of the non-scripted variety, but even during the lesser-watched, warmer months, the littlest network still likes to keep a little drama in the air. The newest entry in this category is the Pandora TV series. How will it do in the Nielsen ratings? Is science fiction the right genre to bring people inside and get them to sit down in front of their televisions? Will Pandora be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CW sci-fi drama from creators Mark A. Altman and Steve Kriozere, Pandora stars Priscilla Quintana, Oliver Dench, Raechelle Banno, John Harlan, Ben Radcliffe, Banita Sandhu, Martin Bobb-Semple, and Noah Huntley. Unfolding in the year 2199, the action centers on Jax (Quintana) aka Pandora. After the traumatic death of her parents, Jax must start her life anew, so she enters the EarthCom Fleet Training Academy. It is there that she discovers there is more to her identity than she had always believed. When the truth shakes up her world, it leads her on a quest for answers. Whether Jax will save or destroy humanity though, remains to be seen.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
