Are you a fan of Reign? The CW TV show airs its series finale tonight, June 16th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. But what if the show was renewed? Would you have kept watching the historical drama?
Reign centers on the turbulent life of Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane). The cast also includes Megan Follows, Rachel Skarsten, Celina Sinden, Craig Parker, Rose Williams, Ben Geurens, Dan Jeannotte, Jonathan Goad, Spencer MacPherson, and Will Kemp.
Reign has once again struggled in the ratings during its fourth and last season. Currently, the series is averaging a 0.20 rating in the 18-49 demo and 695,000 viewers, making it one of The CW’s lowest-rated shows for the 2016-2017 season. Not to mention, it seems like many people have stopped watching Reign given the near 30% drop in ratings from season three to four.
However, even though The CW cancelled Reign , it seems there was still plenty of story to tell. Earlier, series creator Laurie McCarthy shared some of her ideas for the future of the show had it been renewed:
You could just go on and on, particularly with Elizabeth and Catherine. And there could have been a very strong fifth season with Mary, following the trajectory of her third marriage, which was to Bothwell. In Scotland, we would have told a tale that was as much as a western as a political drama; she’d be on the run, there would be sieges, there would be a falling out with her brother — there’s a lot that we would have loved to have gotten our arms around. And with Catherine, there was a daughter we had yet to meet whose wedding left Paris running with blood. There was truly a lot.”
What do you think? Do you still like Reign? Would you have watched another season of the CW series?
