Did Whiskey Cavalier ever have a chance at a second season? Recently, ABC boss Karey Burke explained why the network briefly reconsidered the TV show’s cancellation, TVLine reports.
The drama series centers on FBI Agent Will Chase (Scott Foley), codename: “Whiskey Cavalier” and CIA operative Frankie Trowbridge (Lauren Cohan), codename: “Fiery Tribune.” Although they start off as rivals, they’re soon assigned to a joint-agency task force to root out corruption and crime and save the world. The cast also includes Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams, Vir Das, and Josh Hopkins.
Earlier this year, ABC cancelled Whiskey Cavalier after one season only to reconsider the decision before ultimately canceling the series. Speaking to TVLine, ABC boss Karey Burke said the network considered bringing the show back because of an email written by executive producer Bill Lawrence:
He was just so deeply passionate about it. He put his heart and soul into it. And he just asked us to take one last look. And we really did.”
However, Burke said a second season of Whiskey Cavalier was just to difficult to justify given the show’s low ratings:
It was tough [to justify] financially [and] ratings-wise. We ultimately just decided to bet on the future.”
What do you think? Have you seen Whiskey Cavalier? Would you have watched a second season?
I loved it. My Favorite new show. I will think twice before watching a new series on ABC again.
I totally loved the series and so disappointed it has been cancelled. Not everyone wants to watch stupid reality crap. Lidm Life is hard enough. TV has gone down hill and so sick of everything about being about rich people’s and poor people’s drama. We all gave enough to deal with daily. Every night there is nothing to watch. Thank God you haven’t canceled NCIS,NCIS New Orleans cuz after Tuesday night there is nothing to watch on your station. Whiskey Cavalier was fresh, characters were such a great mix. Smarten up people and consider all aspects when cancelled shows. All… Read more »
I am honestly very disappointed because I think it is a great series, and I would love to watch more seasons of it. However, I understand that if it wasn’t popular enough, they have had to cancel it. If they decide to make new seasons in the end, I will definitely watch them all. I love Whiskey Cavallier!!!
I would definitely have watched a 2nd, 3rd whatever season. Why other very crappy shows are still on amazes me. I’ve seen previews for others shows that will be starting and I have absolutely no interest. Quickly loosing me as a viewer.
Yes, I would definitely watch. Whiskey Cavalier was a favorite. I’m still baffled as to how it was canceled with so many D list shows still running.
I’m so disappointed ABC cancelled this show. I loved the concept of the show and the characters were awesome together! The show was a breath of fresh air compared to everything else ABC has on the air. A 10 episode run in the middle of the season, ABC could have, should have given the show another season especially since it left the season finally on a cliffhanger!
I won’t be watching abc again if whiskey goes. they are always canceling shows l like
So sad. One of my favorites!
Yes would definitely watch again. loved this show. Better than some other shows on today
It’s sad that ABC cancels WC for low ratings. ABC has poor ratings and few shows that I couldn’t miss like WC. Just another reason to watch CBS and their great lineup of winning shows. Why CBS? Because they pretty much grow and developed their shows which last for many seasons. ABC has proven that ABC could be more accurately looked at as standing for All (the) bad crap. Losers are comfortable with staying at the bottom, because it’s their comfort zone. ABC proves this to a tee!
Absolutely!!! Much better than all the trash coming out. Character development was moving along well. One of my favorites!
Yes! Love it. Bring back season 2, 3, 4, and many more!
This show was great, the interaction between the characters, so hilarious. So nice to have a show that’s different from all the others. There are a lot of people that record the show, take that into consideration
It was only on for half a season, give it a chance. So sick of all these reality shows.
One of, if not THE best new show encompassing continuous action, fantastic humor, great, spontaneous and exceptional acting………
And you cancel it! Sooo disappointing and disheartening. You really blew it.
My husband and I absolutely loved Whiskey Cavalier.bi was waiting for 2nd season not realizing it had been cancelled. And the reason for cancellation is low ratings. Maybe if it had been advertised across cable and streaming it would have been different. Between the fan base of Scott Foley from Scandal and Lauren Cohan from Walking Dead this should have been off the charts. Please bring it back. We are bummed. Not much worth watching but we streamed this on Hulu as we don’t have cable.
This show actually bring my whole family together!!!!! We are so disappointed as well:( !!
