With the announcement of their 2017-2018 schedule, CBS has confirmed that Ransom has been cancelled after one season. The suspense drama never really appeared a candidate for a second season, given the fact that it premiered on New Years Day before being relegated to Saturday nights for the remainder of its run.
An international co-production, Ransom followed a veteran hostage negotiator whose team works to resolve some of the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. The team uses its insight into human behavior to resolve these intense situations while refusing to resort to violence no matter the stakes.
