It is being reported that ABC has cancelled The Catch after two seasons. The sophomore drama, which was produced by TV heavyweight Shonda Rhimes, debuted in early 2016 as a mid-season entry with a lot of buzz attached to it. While it drew modest ratings on Thursday nights, the show never materialized into 'hit' status.
In fact, ahead of Season 2 the show was retooled into more of a romantic comedy, but the move did little to change its fortunes. Despite a fairly good reception from critics, ratings fell ever lower this spring.
Mireille Enos and Peter Krause headlined the series, which followed a top L.A. private investigator who is conned out of millions of dollars by her fiancé. Determined for payback, she sets out on her own private mission to get her money back - and an explanation.
