Tonight marks the end of the first season of You, Me and the Apocalypse on NBC. Is the Thursday night series coming back? Would you watch season two?
A dramatic comedy, You, Me and the Apocalypse revolves around the last days of mankind. It’s discovered that a comet is on a collision course with earth in 34 days and an unexpected chain of events is set in motion. The cast includes Mathew Baynton, Joel Fry, Pauline Quirke, Jenna Fischer, Kyle Soller, Rob Lowe, Gaia Scodellaro, Paterson Joseph, Megan Mullally, Diana Rigg, and Fabian McCallum.
A UK co-production, this series first aired on Sky 1 in late 2015. While it seemed like the series was envisioned as a “one season show”, the door was left open for a second season.
When the series didn’t perform very well for NBC here in the States, that seems to have closed the door on the prospects for a second season and You, Me and the Apocalypse was “cancelled“. The loose ends in the finale may never be tied up.
But, what do you think? Would you have watched a second season? Are you satisfied with the way the show ended?
