This is a little bit like reporting water is wet, but it is official. Kyra Sedgwick’s Ten Days in the Valley TV show has been cancelled by ABC. It’s no mystery why there will be no second season for the TV series. After introducing it on October 1, 2017, the network pulled Ten Days in the Valley from the air before the end of the month, only to bring it back on Saturdays — in December. It’s been cancelled for a while, now. The Alphabet Network has just finally admitted the truth. That is the first step, on the road to recovery.
An ABC mystery drama, Ten Days in the Valley stars Sedgwick as TV producer Jane Sadler. Since her bitter separation from husband Pete (Kick Gurry), Jane has felt the drain of her demanding life. When their daughter, Lake (Abigail Pniowsky), disappears, it seems everyone is keeping secrets, so no one is above suspicion. Erika Christensen, Josh Randall, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Felix Solis, and Francois Battiste also star. The recurring cast includes Ali Liebert, Marisol Ramirez, Emily Kinney, Currie Graham, Beth Triffon, Ella Thomas, Ali Stroker, Nelson Lee, Mark L. Young, Jeff Branson, and Gage Golightly.
Ten Days in the Valley: A Look at the Ratings
The first and only season of Ten Days in the Valley averaged a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.155 million viewers. Ten Days in the Valley earned the lowest demo numbers of the 26 scripted ABC TV shows we tracked during the regular 2017-18 television season and only beat out bottom-dweller Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD in terms of average total viewers.
Deadline has confirmed the Ten Days in the Valley cancellation. That report also states, “The network said the remaining episodes will air.” By our reckoning, they already did. Unless we missed something, let’s chalk that last bit up to confusion induced by a huge day of cancellations and renewals.
