During its first summer on CBS, the Salvation TV show ran in the middle of the pack in the Nielsen ratings race. Now it’s back for a second season. How will it fare, this time? Will Salvation be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A CBS suspense drama, Salvation, stars Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Melia Kreiling, Ashley Thomas, and Ian Anthony Dale. The thriller follows MIT graduate student Liam Cole (Rowe) and tech genius Darius Tanz (Cabrera), who discover that in six months, a huge asteroid will crash into the Earth. In season two, the truth is out. Now that it is no longer a secret, the impending threat will elicit both the best and worst from humanity. **Status update below.
