Since ABC Family rebranded as Freeform, the Disney-owned cable network, aimed at teens and young adults, has also been tweaking its content, with a move to programming that’s edgier than old cancelled favorites like Switched at Birth. Now Freeform has introduced its Siren TV show (not to be confused with similarly named, cancelled USA Network EMT dramedy). Does the first season of this fantasy series have what it takes, to lure the young viewers of demographers dreams? Will Siren be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A Freeform mystery thriller, the first season of Siren stars Alex Roe, Eline Powell, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun, Rena Owen, Sibongile Mlambo, Chad Rook, Aylya Marzoff, Ron Yuan, Tammy Gillis, Curtis Lum, Anthony Harrison, Hannah Levien, Andrew Jenkins, David Kaye, and Sedale Threatt, Jr. The drama is set in Bristol Cove, a small fishing village which, according to the lore, was once home to mermaids. One day, the enigmatic Ryn (Powell) arrives in town. While Ben (Roe), a marine biologist, finds himself drawn to her, his co-worker, Maddie (Evans-Akingbola), is deeply suspicious of the newcomer. Together, they set out to uncover the truth. **Status update below.
