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.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Great show I cant believe it’s being cancelled, bring in new plot/ directors this can still bring the thrill in thriller if done right / what’s in the orb start there
The plot could go in virtually any direction at this point. I for one am begging for them to get more feedback in this matter or let some other company such as Netflix to carry this torch. This show should not be cancelled.
It says cancelled, but there is room from the show’s arc that much is left to develop and explore!!!PLEASE reconsider!!! It is an excellent cast,get them back before they sign another show!! We loved it!
Please continue for 3rd season. I’m dying to know what about the asteroid and humanity! I have watched 2 seasons during last week, it means it’s good!
Salvation is great and wish for a third season
Salvation is one of the best series in a long time! Great characters, plot twists and amazing acting. The subject is relevant and topical. Santiago Cabrera carries the show masterfully, and the chemistry between the characters makes the show work superbly. Please renew for a season 3! We have enough law, hospital and police series out there. Salvation is a differentiator for CBS. Keep it please.
Continue for another season!
I vote to have the series continued, don’t like to be left hanging as to what “it” is.
Salvation is brilliant there must be a season 3
Please renew it! This is amazing show and cast!!!
