Last season, ABC tried a murder mystery reality show with the Whodunnit? series. It didn’t do very well. Now they’re trying another fantasy competition with The Quest. Will this one be a ratings success and be renewed for a second season, or will it be cancelled too? Stay tuned!
On The Quest, a dozen everyday people are transported to a fantasy world called Everealm where they have adventures and compete to be the last “true hero” remaining. The cast includes Peter Windhofer, Jan Hutter, Marcello de Nardo, Susanne Gschwendtner, Stephanie Buddenbrock, Florence Kasumba, Mai Duong Kieu, and Doug Tait.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
Update: Will ABC be renewing The Quest for a second season?
Final season averages: 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.94 million total viewers.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night.

What do you think? Do you like The Quest TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a second season?
I LOVED The Quest! It was a refreshing take on reality TV, unique in its scripted/unscripted dichotomy. All the richness of good writing and fantasy, with the heart-tugging element of real human personality. Please, PLEASE renew this show!
It is ironic to read these very late favourable comments about The Quest. When it aired last summer it had terrible ratings even with its supposed target demographic group. Where were all of you when the show needed you? I’m not a fan of this series. I found the competitions to be a little too simple to be taken seriously as a way to find the “one true hero” who could face real monsters and save a real kingdom. However I could have accepted that if the show was on the level. A quick check of IMDB was all you… Read more »
These late positive comments are because of ABC’s terrible promotion of this show when it aired and the current listing on Netflix. People are now finally seeing it exists (thanks Netflix!), watching it, and then loving it. Myself included.
The Quest should definitely be renewed. It was a truly awesome show that brought joy to a lot of people. It had great racial representation. It was a great way for the viewers to see that their dream had become a reality for those twelve competetors.
All in all it was an amazing show and I, along with millions of others, would be disappointed if The quest did not continue.
We have just watched the Quest as a family and everyone loved it! Definitely run a second season!
Finally, a reality show that was interesting and entertaining. Not to mention that it is the only one that my wife ever sat down to watch. Season 2, please.
I think one of my favorite things about this series is that all of the contestants were very kind and positive (Except Christian.) Everyone was there to give a help hand, and it was really cool to watch them support each other.
