The drama will not return for Season 3.
March 29, 2018
It is being reported that Freeform has cancelled Beyond after two seasons. The Tim Kring drama aired its sophomore finale just last week, capping a season that marked a notable decline in viewership.
Premiering early last year, the show started out strong and earned itself an early renewal after just one week on the air. It performed well digitally too, giving the cable network its best week across its online platforms with the release of the entire first season at once. Season 2 was a different story however, with ratings dipping significantly during most of its run.
Beyond follows a young man who awakens from a 12-year coma to find that he possesses new supernatural abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.

Ironically, I was just thinking about this being the most likely Freeform decision after watching Season 2’s last episode about a week ago. In Season 1, I really enjoyed watching the development of powers and such. It reminded me a lot of Heroes season 1 but with just a character or two being focused upon. I couldn’t wait each week for the show to come back on. But this season was all across the board. Too many plot lines, not enough superpowers development, and they made the main character so unsure of himself where instead he should have been coming more into leadership and confidence, especially with the use of his powers. When I find myself surfing the web or working on a puzzle or something else while watching a show, it’s a sure sign it’s lost it’s direction, at least for me, which is how I watched this entire second season. I’m not disappointed or surprised it was cancelled and now I’m looking forward to cloak and dagger ton this channel next!

No effin way! Another cliffhanger ending! And it was just starting to go the eat i'd like. Happens to most of the freeform shows I watch.

"Beyond" is 1 of those shows that you either love or hate... like "Mr. Robot", "The Magicians" and "Orphan Black". The story and ideas pulled me in, but this 2nd season was nowhere written as cleverly as season 1; despite pretty decent jobs from the cast, the storyline got diluted to a point where I wasn't sure what the point was. I wish the cast members all the best, but am glad there won't be a 3rd season to tarnish their careers.
