Despite a 30% drop in the ratings, CBS chose to renew its Zoo TV show for a third season, rather than cancel it. Can the network turn things around and regain some audience, or will this summer TV series go the way of the Dodo? Will Zoo be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
A CBS drama thriller based on the James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge novel, Zoo, stars James Wolk as zoologist Jackson Oz. The cast also includes Kristen Connolly, Nonso Anozie, Billy Burke, Alyssa Diaz, Josh Salatin, and Gracie Dzienny. After noticing animals behaving strangely during the African safaris he conducts, Oz and his team work to figure out the reason behind it. Meanwhile, the animals assaults become more cunning, coordinated, and ferocious.
Season three of Zoo opens in the year 2027. Thanks to the sterility issue, the human population is still diminishing. Meanwhile, hybrids pose a new threat. This relentless force of lab-created creatures is determined to wipe humans off the face of the earth. Although the team members have grown alienated from each other over the last ten years, Jackson, Jamie (Connolly), Abraham (Anozie), Dariela (Diaz), and Logan (Salatin) have to get past their differences and reunite when they learn that Mitch (Burke) is alive. They must stop the hybrids and their enigmatic creator – someone with a connection to their past.

I don’t watch much TV but got hooked on this one. At least do season 4 so things end better
I say you guys should do a fourth season see how it goes and base it off of that instead of basing it off of the last season because it looks like a lot of people want to see it and I would really like to see it also it was a really good show and I had a really good story line and you guys f***** it all up by taking it off the air right as they were getting to the barrier and s*** was just about to start popping off so put it back on the air… Read more »

I love this series. I wasn’t happy when you killed Choe. Please don’t cancel this series. It’s really good and it beats the stupid reality tv shows. I truly hate reality shows. I want to watch something that challenges your mind.
Please renew for Fourth season. I watch every week since it started. Love it. You cant leave it like you did. Please renew
My daughter and I enjoyed the series very much. We were sad when it went off for a season. Please bring it back for season 4.
Has everyone who has posted on here signed the petition? I’m with you, Zoo is so different, it’s like a breath of fresh air (crazy air admittedly)
Mitch Morgan is such a great character, he really cracks me up, Billy Burke has done so well with him. Really want to see more Zoo, a going back in time to fix things season four would be my wish.
