Annie Bello won’t get to fight for new causes in the 2021-22 television season. ABC has cancelled the Rebel TV series so there won’t be a second year.
A drama, the Rebel TV show is inspired by the life of activist Erin Brockovich today and stars Katey Sagal, John Corbett, James Lesure, Lex Scott Davis, Tamala Jones, Ariela Barer, Kevin Zegers, Sam Palladio, and Andy Garcia. Annie “Rebel” Bello (Sagal) is a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree. She’s a funny, messy, brilliant, and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves. When Rebel applies herself to a fight she believes in, she will win at almost any cost.
Airing on Thursday nights, the first season of Rebel averages a 0.43 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.23 million viewers in the live+same day ratings.
The cancellation doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The series follows Grey’s Anatomy on the schedule but performs poorly in the ratings and loses a lot of its lead-in audience. It’s one of the lowest-rated freshman series on the network this season.
What do you think? Have you watched the Rebel TV series on ABC? Are you disappointed by the cancellation? Were you hoping that the show would be renewed for season two?
That is terrible news !!! I absolutely loved this show!!! Netflix – pick this up please!!!!!
No way!!! I just finished watching season one and it’s one of the best series I’ve seen in a long time! It was so well produced on all levels. Perfectly cast, clever, suspenseful, funny, and heartwarming. Please someone pick up this show!
I really enjoyed this show, I love watching anyone fighting for what is right and being on the good side. But still being a bad ass, I hope they bring it back
