While This Is Us is NBC’s biggest drama in years, and Dick Wolf’s Chicago and Law & Order franchises are mainstays, the Peacock Network could use another unqualified hit. This year, New Amsterdam has done well enough to score a renewal, while the the future of Manifest is still up in the air. Enter The Enemy Within TV show. Does this mid-season drama have what it takes to make a splash in the Nielsen ratings? Will The Enemy Within be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An NBC psychological thriller, the first season of The Enemy Within stars Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Raza Jaffrey, Kelli Garner, Cassandra Freeman, and Noah Mills. The character-based drama centers on former CIA operative and now infamous traitor Erica Shepherd (Carpenter) and FBI Agent Will Keaton (Chestnut). In order to apprehend a looming threat, Keaton must tap Shepherd’s expertise, even though she’s serving a life sentence in a supermax prison.
