Cancellation Watch: Lucifer Gets Full Season Order, From Dusk Till Dawn Could be Done, The Walking Dead Falls, Plus the Ratings Roundup

lucifer-season-2News of Note: FOX announced yesterday that their supernatural dramedy Lucifer, based on the Neil Gaiman comic book, will be getting its “Back 9” episodes for its second season to give it a full twenty-two ep order. The news does not come as a huge surprise, but it was also not guaranteed because the show is currently performing below that network’s season-to-date average ratings. But it is not too far off and if you take outlier Empire out of the mix it definitely looks better. And since that network has been struggling overall for a while, they probably figured it was best to hold on to any show performing decently well at this point. In additional news, the El Rey network has announced that they have released the stars from their supernatural series From Dusk Till Dawn from their current contracts. The network’s options on the actors were set to expire after the show’s third season (which has its finale tonight), and El Rey has not made a move to extend them. The network has not claimed that the show has been cancelled, but releasing the stars is never a good sign. From Dusk Till Dawn has survived through three low-rated seasons, but that is in a large part because that cable channel is not widely carried (the first two seasons are available on Netflix, though). El Rey has indicated that they will make a final decision on the show in early 2017, and if a fourth season does happen then they will bring back the original actors. For now, though, it is wait and see for the fans of that show. Read the full article at our partner site
