The hostage negotiator drama will return for Season 2.
October 10, 2017
CBS today unexpectedly renewed Ransom for a second season. The internationally-produced suspense drama premiered earlier this year for a mid-season run, but was ultimately thought to be DOA after landing a permanent Saturday night time slot.
CBS had been quiet on Ransom's fate until now. Cancellation had been suspected based on the fact that the series drew some of the lowest ratings for an original on the network, coupled with the fact that it was completely absent from their 2017-2018 schedule announcement this spring.
Ransom follows 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.
13 episodes have been ordered for Season 2, though a time frame for its return has not yet been finalized.

Since the 1st episode, I have loved the show but been totally confused by the behind the scenes drama. I hope they have figured it out because for those of us who like procedurals, this is an enjoyable one.

Networks should know that there are very few series (other than Dr. Who on BBC America ) that make it on a first run basis on Saturday nights. Most networks show reruns from earlier in the week. Glad CBS renewed.

Very surprised, I wouldn't have bet on this one, I expected it to disappear like the RSS feed here (>_<), but okay.

Wow, did not see that one coming, I figured it was essentially dead. Glad to see it come back, especially with the cliffhanger we were left with.
