No Season 2 for the counterintelligence thriller.
May 30, 2019
It is being reported that The Enemy Within has been cancelled after its first season. The thriller premiered in February for a 13-episode run that concluded with its now-series finale on May 20.
The show got off to a decent start in the ratings over its first few episodes, but viewers seemed to lose interest as the weeks wore on. Reception from critics was generally mixed, with no real glowing praise to garner additional buzz.
The Enemy Within followed brilliant former CIA operative Erica Shepherd, who became known as the most notorious traitor in American history after betraying her country. While serving a life sentence in a Supermax prison, Erica is contacted by FBI Agent Will Keaton, who has reluctantly turned to her for help in tracking down a dangerous criminal.

Thanks for the relevant info @Khelben. So those who watched it to the end can be thankful that the original storyline had an end. I don’t know if this is the rule or the exception. I haven’t deleted the remaining episodes that I haven’t yet watched, but it’s more than half, so I still will. If it was only two or three, I would see it to its end.

All I can say is that I am sick with NBC. I loved ENEMY WITHIN and they are taking it away. I am so sick of networks giving us one season or a partial season of a show and just cancelling it without giving it at least a second or even a third season. I mean NBC Not only cancelled this show, they also cancelled The Village and, Abby’s. Both of them didn’t get a full season nor a second season chance. I am giving up hope on NBC!!!!

But Enemy Within doesn't need a 2 h movie to end the story, it already has an ending! The bad guy is dead, Erica's future is set, there's no cliffhanger… Granted, it was set up for a season 2 with the "I was not alone" part, but it's still an ending, and a 2 h movie wouldn't do any good.

Damn it, I really liked this show!!! I think EW was a victum of bad timing in '19 and it could have survived following the Blacklist on Fridays next season instead of Dateline for 2 hrs!!! If needed NBC could have moved it to a winter fill in series. At first I thought EW was gonna be a 1 season (limited) series. It would be nice of NBC would give EW a 2 hr finale like timeless got!!!

The one person who suggested that shows get more than one season also said: or else they be given an ending episode if they need one. Not exactly crazy. Not exactly entitled. I bet everyone of us, at least once, thought a show we liked that got cancelled wasn’t given a proper chance. I’ll bet everyone of us has had many shows pulled from us right in the middle of a plot. Blaze is an idiot for his or her (isn’t Blaze a dog?) “utterly weird” slam.
Does he not know that many people do not get cable (or use an antennae) but stream and watch past series for a good price. I get cable and do not stream but the strategy of waiting until shows with ongoing plots complete before watching them is a smart strategy. I don’t do it but I do not criticize those who do. Blaze is an idiot.
I would think he’s just a kid, but most here are older and most kids don’t watch tv.
It’s not only kids that don’t know what’s going one. Some only get their news from tv. Some never read anything. Except for betting on horse races, or stock, or following sports, anything that is worth reading the minute it comes out, is worth reading later, often a lot later. The stuff that is fleeting is unimportant. If you can still only watch a sporting event live or it doesn’t feel right, - unless you already know the score, what’s not right is your brain

1) Put me down in the "disappointed it was cancelled, but in no way surprised" column. The show started strong as an action-thriller with a tense "Who can you trust?" paranoid vibe. Pretty much the same time they stopped showing the opening text of "thousands of spies among us-blah-blah", the show became murky and increasingly dull. (eg. We already knew Erica's backstory, but they wasted an entire flashback episode telling us again)
2) The are so many strange comments and complaints. "One season isn't a fair test". "I don't watch a show until a full season is in the can." My mind boggles at how utterly weird their minds are.

Yeah people want to watch mindless entertainment where you don’t have to use any brain power like all this reality crap! Cut almost every reality show and keep shows like this one! This was an excellent show and so deserved a Season 2 and had the perfect cast! Shame on you America for not watching this show!
