      One year from now – Siren canceled after two seasons. Freeform giving the show 16 episodes will just hasten its demise. Still we all thought this renewal would happen, it’s just a shame Freeform shows die horribly after two seasons these days.


      • FlopWatch

        That’s Freeform for you, unfortunately.


        • Destiny

          You mean Freefall. :)

          The show is already at a 0.15 with its latest episode so I wouldn’t rule out sub 0.1 next season. Freefall were kind enough to give us 16 weeks to get there lol.


      • ChrisM

        The first four episodes of Siren were pretty much a self-contained story. with no real cliffhanger or compelling reason to continue watching. It was decent enough, but I’m not sure I’ll continue watching. Would have made a decent mini-series, or two-part movie though.


  1. Destiny

    The writing on Lucifer has been horrendous this season, but the effort by the fans on social media has been tremendous, I hope it pays off for them.


    • Shan

      Agreed the writing has sucked and the cliffhanger that was suppose to be written to hook FOX into renewing fell flat. If Netflix does pick it up they will drop it after one season. I wonder how much Warners is willing to lose to get them to buy it?


      • Destiny

        I think the writers forgot that they were writing for an ancient immortal being with immeasurable power. The way they made him all whiney over Chloe was so cringe, I was tempted to stop watching a while ago. I hear fans of the comic book mentioning that the character Lucifer had way more powers than he does on the show.

        I would hate to speculate on the chance of anyone picking the show up, it would be a miracle for any show to be picked up after cancelation. But when there’s a will, there’s always a way. Never say never.


    • ChrisM

      Thank you for me not being the only one to see what a stupid soap opera the show became. On the bright side, it has made me look to get the comic series, or trade paperbacks, to read what this was really about.


  2. KevinY

    I’m several episodes behind on both Lucifer and Des Surv but if only one gets saved I hope it’s Lucifer. Yes the writing on Lucifer has been in inconsistent but it’s still far superior to the complete calamity of what Designated Survivor has been since the back half of season one. The characters on Lucifer are always great too, I’ll especially miss Maze if it’s truly dead.


    • Destiny

      Lucifer could easily be fixed by dropping the soap opera stuff. Designated Survivor is a bit of an irredeemable trainwreck with the constant showrunner changes. Fans dropped DS because they went from a conspiracy type show to a West Wing clone which they didn’t sign up for.
