WGN America has been running TV series which first ran in other countries, in lieu of programming developed for the cable network. The newest entry in that category is The Disappearance TV show, which originally ran on CTV. Even if it is a success on WGN America though, it is unlikely to be picked up for another season, since it wound up being a miniseries in Canada. While we don’t have to spend much time wondering if The Disappearance will be cancelled or renewed for season two, we’re still keeping an eye on the ratings to give us comparisons for other WGN TV series, so stay tuned.
A WGN America mystery, The Disappearance stars Peter Coyote, Camille Sullivan, Aden Young, Joanne Kelly, Micheline Lanctôt, Michael Riendeau, Kevin Parent, and Neil Napier. The series follows the investigation into the disappearance of Anthony Sullivan (Riendeau), who goes missing during a treasure hunt on his tenth birthday. The psychological drama digs into his family’s emotions as the facts of the case emerge. Although the police are on the case, the family also conducts its own investigation, looking for any possible evidence, and no secret is safe.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
