It looks like the end of the road could be near for NBC's Aquarius. The ratings-challenged David Duchovny drama is once again being relegated to Saturdays, as it was during its first season. This time around, however, the network is not so optimistic for Season 3.
Fans of Aquarius will remember that back in Season 1, NBC bumped the freshman series over to Saturday nights eight episodes into its run. And while the move was made to offset falling ratings, the show had already been handed an early second-season renewal after a promising start.
The network kept its word and brought the series back for Season 2, which premiered this June on Thursday nights. Once again, though, ratings were disappointing, prompting this latest move to Saturdays, which begins after the Olympics on August 27.
Unfortunately, following the move this time was a not-so-optimistic comment from NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke, who stated that renewing Aquarius for a third season would be "tough". Nothing is official yet, but a comment such as that certainly puts a damper on the show's future.
