CBS Breaks Its Silence on ‘Limitless’ — But That Doesn’t Mean We Know the Show’s Fate

May 18, 2016  •  Post A Comment

CBS is finally talking about what it has planned for the drama series “Limitless,” which has been the network’s last bubble show. As we reported separately, the network unveiled its fall schedule today — and “Limitless” fans couldn’t help but notice the absence of the series from the schedule.

Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment, addressed the “Limitless” situation today in a conference with reporters. EW.com quotes Geller saying: “Right now we’re in discussions with other potential buyers.”

The report notes that Geller’s comment means the series, which averaged 9.7 million viewers with a 2.2 rating in the key 18-49 demo in its freshman season, is not canceled — yet. But it does appear that the series, which comes from CBS Television Studios, doesn’t have much of a future on the broadcast network.

Developed by Craig Sweeny and starring Jake McDorman and Jennifer Carpenter, “Limitless” is a sequel to the 2011 Bradley Cooper movie of the same name.



  1. Please bring back Limitless! Please bring back Limitless! Please bring back Limitless!

  2. Glen Geller and others at CBS must be out of their minds. “Limitless” is a great show. — Oh, wait a minute. “Limitless” is smart, interesting, innovative and sexy — in other words, everything CBS isn’t.

  3. Knowing CBS, you may find new episodes on CBS All Access.
