Tonight marks the season finale of Red Widow since ABC ordered just eight episodes of the series. Is this the end? Will the drama be back for a second season or will it be cancelled instead?
For those unfamiliar with the show, Red Widow revolves around a San Francisco housewife and mother who finds herself forced to continue her husband’s work in organized crime after his death. The large cast includes Radha Mitchell, Clifton Collins Jr., Luke Goss, Sterling Beaumon, Suleka Mathew, Erin Moriarty, Jaime Ray Newman, Jakob Salvati, Lee Tergesen, Wil Traval, Rade Serbedzija, and Goran Visnjic.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing a second season renewal for Red Widow. The show’s ratings were poor at the start — debuting to a 1.5 demo rating with 7.13 million viewers — and have gotten a lot worse as the weeks have worn on.
Last week’s numbers fell to a new low — a 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic with 3.47 million total viewers. Red Widow is one of the lowest-rated shows on the network, ensuring that ABC won’t be bringing it back next season.
But, what do you think? Should ABC renew the drama or are they justified in cancelling it? Are you satisfied with the last episode? How would you wrap up the storylines?
You can’t just end it after one season no frikin way it’s at the point of getting really interesting all characters match well and the chemistry works!!! Sick of seeing absolute crap one when you get the good ones you can them. Get a grip make season two keep going plenty of plots to play with here.
it is a shame no season it had a good ending and was waiting for season two as it was just starting build up to something better. I’m sorry no season two is coming.
i really liked it and the ending was just the right climax plus there was clearly strong sexual chemistry between the widow and the opposing gangster a great cast and clearly a wrong move and the part of the net work
please keep the show, it is more interesting to watch than any other crime series
Keep Red Widow, we need a second season. It is a great show.
Keep this show going!! Greys Anatomy is getting blech and so is modern family! You keep the crap, but you cancel the good ones. This is a great show and will have many plot lines and guest stars!! Pick up Mob Doctor. That was another show that shud not have been cancelled. Get out of the rut and give something a good run not 6 or 8 eps!!
the Red widow was a great show, they put it on and then they take it away what is with this leave things alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bring this show back cmon give it a chance we was loving it. and brothers and sisters and desperate housewife’s the wonderful world of Disney presentations cmon please……………
Red Widow was great, intelligent, intriguing television, and a stands out from other TV shows. I only tuned to ABC because of Red Widow and Dancing with the Stars. Seems I will only tune once this season =(. To bad yet another show that ABC cancels before giving it a chance. No news here.
