CBS will continue its prime-time airings of a drama series that the broadcast network has been running on Saturday evenings. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network will bring back “Ransom” for a third season.
The imported series has a 13-episode order and is set to resume production in October for premiere in 2019, both on CBS in the U.S. and on Global in Canada.
“The ‘Ransom’ renewal comes as CBS continues to support original programming on typically little-watched Saturdays,” THR notes. “Season two of the show, created by David Vainola and Frank Spotnitz, averaged 2.4 million viewers during its April-June run on the network.”
The series is produced by Entertainment One, Big Light Productions, Sienna Films, Wildcats Production and Corus Entertainment, with eOne distributing.
