Just a week after wrapping its season, a cable drama series has been canceled. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Freeform pulled the plug on the Tim Kring series “Beyond” after two seasons.
“After launching all 10 of its first-season episodes with a Netflix-like binge model in season one, Freeform days later renewed the series for a second season,” THR notes. “All told, the network at the time said more than 14 million people watched the show in its first week — with 7.2 million of those watching the linear premiere. It helped Freeform generate what it says was its best week across digital platforms in more than four years. With three days of delayed viewing, ‘Beyond’ — from Kring’s Imperative Entertainment — ranks as the network’s biggest launch in a year: 1.5 million total viewers and 500,000 among adults 18-49.”
THR adds: “The series returned on-par in January but saw its numbers quickly decline from there. The March 22 season finale drew just 260,000 total viewers — off about 50 percent year-over-year.”
