The Saturday drama will return in 2019.
July 16, 2018
CBS announced today that Ransom has been picked up for a third season. It's an interesting move for the network; one that seems to indicate that it will continue support original programming on Saturday nights.
The internationally-produced suspense drama premiered as a mid-season entry early last year, receiving little fanfare in its Saturday time slot. And while it appeared CBS was just burning off its episodes on the least cared about day of the week, the network ended up renewing the show for a sophomore run this spring - also on Saturday nights. With consistent viewership and little competition, CBS seems happy to continue the series in 2019.
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.
Another 13 episodes have been ordered for Season 3, matching the lengths of its first two seasons. Look for a return next Spring.

I’m really happy that this show has been renewed. It’s nice to have something decent to watch on Saturday night! I love the premise, it’s different from any other show on tv. Interesting plots, great characters although I do wish they’d bring back all the characters.

Great news! Interesting show. And sorry, mama bear, but Code Black wore out its welcome seasons ago. Cloying soap opera stuff.

They should cancel Ransom and bring back Code Black I have watched both and Code Black is by far the more interesting and has better acting and writing !!

This got so boring I gave up in the end how it got renewed I don't know a lot of recently cancelled shows far better than this.

Nice! The daughter plot aside, this show is pretty good.

Surprised, this season was weird with always one of the actresses not there, it felt like they weren't available for shooting. The daughter getting brained watched was done and over with way to fast, done too superficially. Hope, since they are renewed much quicker this time around, which means more time for writing and filming, that season 3 will have more depth.

I quit watching this show because of the brainwashed daughter plot. It was just stupid.
