Do you see Extant in your future? Can the sci-fi series, starring a huge movie star, make it to season 2? It’s looking like a 50/50 chance according to the producer Mickey Fischer.
Extant is considered a limited series, but it looks like it has enough storyline to continue into season 2. The question is, do the viewers want to keep tuning into the complex, serialized extra-terrestrial drama?
Fischer has said that he has enough to keep the series going, but if it meets it’s end after just one season, he promises a satisfying finale.
The show focuses on Molly, played by Halle Berry, as she returns from a 13-month solo space mission and finds out she’s pregnant.
There’s three more episodes left of season 1 and CBS has not made a decision regarding the future of the show.
The series hasn’t been a ratings powerhouse, which is why it might not be renewed. But, the ratings haven’t been bad either.
Extant debuted July 9 and attracted 9.58 million viewers. The 1.7 rating was amongst 18-49 demographic.
In two weeks, ratings took a moderate dip, which is pretty normal for a new series. Unfortunately, they continued declining in week three.
The show currently draws a consistent 1.0, with a little under 6 million viewers.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Extant? Should it be cancelled or renewed?
