As expected, there won’t be a second season for Lifetime’s future drama, The Lottery. The cable channel has cancelled the TV series after one season of 10 episodes.
The Lottery takes place in the year 2025 when our planet is in the midst of a fertility crisis. Women can no longer bear children and the human race faces extinction. After years of research researchers have been able to fertilize 100 eggs and a lottery is held to determine who can carry them to term. The cast of this thriller includes Marley Shelton, Martin Donovan, Yul Vasquez, Athena Karkanis, Michael Graziadei, David Alpay, and Shelley Conn.
The show premiered in July to 1.08 million viewers but lost more than 30% of its viewers in week two and the numbers kept sliding downward as the season progressed. The finale, which aired on September 28th, drew just 425,000. The season averaged 670,000 viewers, a far cry from Devious Maids’ 1.81 million average.
What do you think? Did you like The Lottery TV show? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I’m still hoping they bring it back! Fisrt season ended with so many juicy plot twists and one hell of a cliffhanger.
The Lottery was a great show so not sure why it was cancelled ? I waited , and waited and to hear it was not renewed for a second season was shocking at the least !
I wonder if anyone would pick this up as a possible movie… #netflix
Yes. I was getting right into that.
Loved The Lottery. I was anxiously awaiting season 2. Please bring back and try again. I really wanted to see how everything was going to play out. Very disappointed.
Please bring back The Lottery. Dont know why you cancelled. Very good story line.
I absolutely loved the lottery! It got my attention each show and hated waiting til next week. It gave me that thrill and anticipation on what was going to happen into the next show! I was so devastated when it stopped airing and want another season! Maybe make more advertisement of the show or air it on another channel. Please bring back the lottery! I was a faithful viewer!
a very good show …it should be back
