This team of geeks and misfits is sticking together. CBS has renewed the Scorpion TV show for a fourth season which will air as part of the 2017-18 broadcast season.
Airing on the CBS television network, Scorpion revolves around computer expert Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits. They’re this country’s last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats. The quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in. The series also stars Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Riley B. Smith.
Season three kicked off in October 2016 and 20 installments have aired so far. Ratings-wise, Scorpion is averaging a 1.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.26 million viewers. Year-to-year, that’s down by 31% in the demo and down by 25% in viewers. To be fair, the show did shift to a later timeslot.
With these declines, Scorpion is currently in the middle of the pack among CBS’ other current scripted series. The renewal isn’t a surprise, however. It’s co-produced by CBS Television Studios and a fourth season will give the series plenty of episodes for a syndication package. Could season four be the end? We’ll have to wait and see.
What do you think? Do you like the Scorpion TV show on CBS? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a fourth season? Should it have been cancelled instead?
WE would like to have Scorpion continue for many seasons. It is one of our 2 favorite shows. The show has a different story line that is refreshing. We look forward to it every Monday night.
I have been a faithful fan since the beginning. I love the cast and the stories. I learn something new every week. Keep it going!
Scorpion is a good show, Paige and Happy make the show work. Low rating due to ten o’clock time, also scripts and story lines need to be greatly improved if the show gets renewed for another season. Happy and Toby should have had a baby already or adopt one, it is TV right?
Look forward to Scorpion every Monday. It’s my favorite show
Yaaaa, glad it’s renewed! Love the dynamics of the show. Different from same ol same ol!
