No Season 2 for the sci-fi drama.
May 21, 2020
Word is out that Emergence has been cancelled by ABC after one season. The sad news comes as the network announced its lineup for the 2020-2021 season. The move was not totally unexpected though, as the sci-fi drama failed to draw a significant audience.
Emergence follows recently-divorced police chief Jo Evans, who takes in a mysterious young girl she finds near the site of a mysterious accident. With the child having no memory of what happened to her, the resulting investigation draws Jo into a conspiracy that runs deeper than she could have imagined.

Did you work on the show? No? Then don't go insulting the men. You just set feminism 20 years. Maybe the show did bad because of the reasons mentioned in the comments and not your sexist ideals.

Once again ABC screwed us over!! cancelling another wonderful scripted show to show us another crappy and over done reality tv series. Maybe if ABC wasnt scared of having a strong powerful female lead in a show and sexist hate filled men filiming behind the scenes this show could have gone on. Maybe another network could pick up it and everyone would love having it back!!

By woke David means "had women with jobs and pants, and people of not my background" If it wasn't how a show was in the 50s certain people are scared of it.

Same old unfortunately. The 2019/20 season has been the worst in years. Unless of course you wanna watch nothing else but police/law shows all the time. But then the "regular" networks keep whining about people going over to the streaming services ...
This is not the way.

Except for Flash, Green arrow, Supergirl, Gotham, legends of tomorrow, expanse, magicians, doctor who, game of thrones, lab rats, the Thunderman, the librarians, stranger things, beauty and the beast, walking dead, fear the walking dead, teen Wolf, the originals, vampire diaries, true blood, or supernatural.
Except for that long list no one last longer than a season.

Casting was so woke. Shocked it was canceled.

What part of they actually aired the show do people not understand as giving it a chance. Letting it actually be viewed on TV is giving it a chance. This just goes to show how people no longer have any idea of how things work. You get a pilot episode it's viewed. If it makes the cut it gets green lit. After it's green lit it goes to production and hopefully aired. If it's aired it's given a chance. Just because you like it doesn't mean it's good.

@Andrew Arthur Dawson. So you must live in a time and space where CW and SCIFI channels don't exist. Maybe when writers start making shows with premises that are actually good maybe they won't get cancelled.

Here’s the harsh reality in 2020 that has been present for about a decade now. As much as I primarily like and watch only superhero/sci-fi/fantasy type shows, they don’t make it past a season or two anymore. People seem to only want crime/medical/thriller shows that blend with reality. And of course reality shows themselves do quite well now too. Thankfully, CW sticks by their shows under the genre I watch, and so do a few cable and streaming channels. But the fact is the majority of shows that make it to three or more seasons are ones that are grounded in reality of what we all experience day to day. I personally watch shows to escape that hence why I like the genre I do. Oh well, I liked Emergence. Was it a great show? No, but was it a fun thought provoking show for me? Yes. C’est La Vie. Another one bites the dust.

This was an "answer a question with a question" show. It never as going to resolve anything really just move on to the next question. Eventually it would be way off in the woods. Better to end it now.
