- Scott Michael Foster and many others.
The series cannot enjoy high rating figures. The level is average, with 6.7 out of 10 on IMDb and with 61% on Rotten Tomatoes. Both critics and ordinary watchers are united in believing that the series worth its continuation, nevertheless, according to multiple reviews. The project is called an engaging soap opera that fits perfectly well for night watching. Moreover, some compare it to the Dallas series calling the discussed serial a new modern twist on it. Are you waiting for the release of the new season air date? What are your impressions after following the first cycle?
Low Chances of Renewal
The series has great reviews yet low rating figures. Well, sometimes, this happens, surely. But can it influence the final verdict that is still to be rendered? The decline in ratings after seven episodes led to the shortening of the initially planned volume that comprises 13 parts to 10.
The low ratings may become a solid reason for cancellation. Whether a new episode of the next installment will be launched ever, we can get to know only after the official statements. So far, nothing is uttered and there is no essence in speaking of the new season release date. Stay tuned and you will be informed when something is changed.
