Reef Break airs its season one finale tonight, September 13th, but will there be a second season? Recently, star Poppy Montgomery spoke with TVLine about the future of the ABC TV show.
The action drama Cat Chambers (Montgomery), a former thief who now works as the fixer for the governor of a beautiful Pacific Island paradise — “The Reef.” The cast also includes Ray Stevenson, Desmond Chiam, Melissa Bonne, and Tamala Shelton.
Like I said, there are quite a lot of surprises between Cat and her supposed nemesis, Doug O’Casey. Someone goes missing, and someone gets kidnapped…. There’s a lot going on. There are a lot of cliffhangers and it’s a bit of a wild ride.”
And what about a second season? ABC has yet to renew the summer series and ratings haven’t exactly been stellar. Montgomery says:
You know, I think we’ve got to take a look at the programming of it; there were so many preemptions and blackouts that it’s hard to get a real read on what the numbers were. Also, you get a lot of bang for your buck on this show, meaning it looks beautiful and we are doing it very “efficiently” when it comes to the price. But I also think it’s one of those shows that, given the right exposure, who wouldn’t enjoy it? It’s a fun ride. I think it’s just got to find it’s legs a little. And it’s an international co-production, so once it airs in France, we’ll get a real sense of what it looks like. If it’s a monster hit in France…”
What do you think? Are you watching Reef Break? Would you watch another season?
