CBS isn’t sticking with The Red Line. Deadline reports the network has cancelled the TV show after only one season. At the ATX TV Festival, executive producer Sunil Nayar confirmed that there wouldn’t be a second season of the limited series.
The drama centers on three separate Chicago families forever changed by the shooting of an unarmed African American doctor, by a white police officer. The cast includes Noah Wyle, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Noel Fisher, Howard Charles, Aliyah Royale, Michael Patrick Thornton, Vinny Chhibber, Corey Reynolds, and Elizabeth Laidlaw.
Since The Red Line‘s debut in April, ratings steadily decreased. The eight episodes of season one averaged a 0.36 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.85 million viewers, making it one of CBS‘ lowest-rated series for the 2018-2019 season.
What do you think? Have you seen The Red Line? Would you have watched a second season?
