Deadline reports that ITV in the UK has scrapped plans for their version of Rising Star, the singing competition that aired here over the summer months on ABC.
Other versions have aired in different parts of the world with mixed success. It was strong in Portugal and the Brazil version secured a second season order.
In Germany however, the series hasn’t been doing well and their planned 10 episodes have been trimmed down to just seven.
While ABC hasn’t made an official decision about the show’s future, Rising Star’s ratings were terrible. It’s highly unlikely that they’ll be ordering a second season.
What do you think? Did you like Rising Star? If ABC cancels it as expected, would you watch a second season on another channel?
Its sad this show didn’t do well love this show. Its a lot better the American Idol
I LOVE, LOVE THIS SHOW. HOPE IT IS RENEWED FOR THE U.S.A.
The show stank…TERRIBLE TALENT!The judges did unethical things and Kesha would vote for a mule if it was a contestant….YES TO EVERYTHING!The talent was karaoke and Everyone knew Jesse was the winner from his first audition! This crap needs to be cancelled pronto!
I’m from Portugal and here it was a success but it aired on the most watched channel so that helped a lot.
