According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS officially canceled ‘Limitless.’ You can read the full scoop below.
Days after CBS president Glenn Geller told reporters that producers were trying to find a home for the second season of the feature film reboot, showrunner Craig Sweeny took to Twitter to announce the fate of his series.
“I’m truly sad to report that #Limitless will not continue on any platform. Thanks so much to everyone who watched,” he wrote.
Sources say producers CBS Television Studios had taken Limitless to Amazon and Netflix, with both streaming services now opting to pass on picking up the series for a second season.
The freshman drama averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 with impressive DVR numbers factored in, but its live-plus-same-day stats (1.4) placed it well behind that of Tuesday night counterparts NCIS (2.2) and NCIS: New Orleans (1.8). With all three NCIS shows returning as well as cop dramas Training Day and MacGyver, CBS has opted to see if it can improve on Limitless’ performance.
