Last week, FOX aired the finale of their Second Chance TV show. Will the series be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Should it get a “second chance” from the network?
On Second Chance, a sheriff named Jimmy Pritchard left his office in disgrace. As a younger man, Jimmy often ignored his family in favor of work and carousing. Unhappy and unwell at 75 years old, he’s killed but gets a second chance when his body is regenerated by some experimental technology. Can Jimmy get things right the second time around? The cast includes Rob Kazinsky, Tim DeKay, Dilshad Vadsaria, Adhir Kalyan, Ciara Bravo, and Vanessa Lengies.
The series debuted on Wednesday, January 13th, and attracted a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.71 million viewers. That wasn’t a pretty poor start. In week two, the numbers dropped about 20% to a 0.98 in the demo with 3.75 million viewers.
The network wasted no time and sent Second Chance packing to Friday nights, switching timeslots with venerable Hell’s Kitchen.
To no surprise, the numbers took a big hit on Friday nights, dropping lower than perhaps than even FOX execs expected. Over the course of its run, Second Chance fell to a 0.5 demo rating with just 1.78 million viewers.
With ratings like these, there seems to be no way that FOX will be renewing Second Chance for a second season. The numbers are just too low, even for a struggling network like FOX.
But, what do you think? Do you like Second Chance? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Bring back second chance!!! I just finished watching season 1 on Hulu, how can you let it end that way! What bad writing in that last 15 minutes!!! Second chance should be giving second chance! Bring it back !!!!! It can be amazing !!! Mary can bring back her brother!!!!
Second chance Great show should NOT have been canceled
Every good and interesting show is cancelled. To make room for garbage reality tv. The networks for e us to watch what they air.. this is why I have prime video and Hulu. I can watch what I want. Second Chance was an excellent show and would have gotten better as the seasons would have allowed the show to grow and the characters to mature. This show should be picked up by another network or Netflix, Hulu, or something else. It would definitely be worth it.
Every time a good show comes on TV and I get interested in it the TV station cancels it I’m really sick of this it doesn’t mean we’re not watching it it means we probably have to record it cuz we all have to work every show I’ve ever liked you’ve cancel it that’s why I stopped watching TV
Really great show, so much you could do in season 2
Love this show, great cast, great plot, want it back….PLEASE bring it back
Great show!! Please give us a second season.
RENEW THIS SHOW, WITH A GOOD TIME SLOT SO EVERYONE CAN WATCH IT…(I HAD TO STAY UP UNTIL 00:00 TO CATCH IT)
