Last season, the ratings for Reign came way down but The CW renewed the series for a third season anyway. Now, the execs have moved it to Friday nights, an even tougher night to attract viewers. How will the drama perform this season? Will it be cancelled or is it certain to be renewed for a fourth season because of syndication profits? Stay tuned.
At the start of season three of Reign, Mary and Francis realize that they are more powerful together than apart. It also introduces us to the royal court of Elizabeth, “Virgin” Queen of England. The cast of this historical drama includes Adelaide Kane, Torrance Coombs, Megan Follows, Toby Regbo, Celina Sinden, Caitlin Stasey, Anna Popplewell, Jonathan Keltz, Sean Teale, Craig Parker, Rose Williams, Rachel Skarsten, and Ben Geurens.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
