The crime thriller will not return for Season 2.
March 1, 2017
It is being reported that USA will not be ordering further installments of Eyewitness, cancelling the new crime drama after just one season. The series premiered last fall, airing Sundays at 10:00pm, but ultimately failed to draw enough viewership in its time slot. Originally receiving a straight-to-series order in January of last year, the show was envisioned as an anthology were it to span multiple seasons.
Based on a short-lived Norwegian series, Eyewitness followed the story of two unsuspecting teenage boys who end up seeing a multiple shooting while together at a forest cabin. Now witnesses to a grisly crime, the two keep quiet out of fear of the perpetrator and that others will find out about their relationship. Unfortunately, they soon realize that the horrible atrocity they witnessed has changed their lives forever.
To anyone else, as I said below, I like Eyewitness, but it felt complete. Where would a 2nd season go?
I don't watch Decades much but I look a lot to see what's showing.
As for Eyewitness, teenage boys don't do anything for me. So it was a quick no go.
Since Complications was mentioned, I watched all of it but it was cancelled early, not renewed. I like the main actor and a lot of the roles were good but the gang came off too phony or unrealistic, over the top, even though I was able to buy into most of it. I liked it but I can see how it got cancelled.
As for Graceland, it had a fair run, but I would have liked another season. It had weak spots where I barely hung on the first two seasons and then they had a ridiculous number of simultaneous (downer) plots going that came close to destroying it. When it ended, it was on better ground than it had been most of the time. The characters were great - shame on those major flaws.
Covert Affairs was mostly good and I watched all of it. I wish Augie wouldn't have been blind and Piper hadn't developed a medical condition. Unnecessary junk. They had run out of creativity when it ended - I believe they knew it was the last season before they filmed it. I liked all the actors and the tension, but they overplayed and overused the CIA corruption conspiracy aspect. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.
Steve S.:You probably already saw that Decades is getting ready to air a bunch of pre and post series' movies, but I thought I would point it out just in case. A lot are hard to find so if any are of interest...
They cancelled so many GREAT shows and ran out of new shows last year, that they picked up "Motive" a show cancelled three times. Twice by ABC (I think) and then cancelled by the Canadian channel who picked up the show that was made for Canadian TV. The show was picked up by ABC (who also picked up the amazing "Rookie Blue" until it's final season both in Canada and here in the USA). However "Motive" was NOT bringing in the ratings that Rookie Blue had while it was still showing and all the way to its series finale.
So great job USA for two amazing shows "Eyewitness", "Graceland", "Complications" and "Covert Affairs". The show "Rush" also a great show and it was cancelled two years ago...I believe. "Rush" however at least allowed the main actor and the best character off "Chicago Fire" allowing them to audition for a pilot of "Lucifer". So while Rush was amazing and Shay on Chicago Fire was a lot of fans favorite character; However Dick Wolf is known for his shows poor writing for younger and LGBTQ characters. I do NOT understand how a team of writers could be so confused on writing young characters and LGBTQ characters. Now I am NOT talking about a short character role or ANY SVU involving LGBTQ & younger characters involved in Law & Order SVU episode.
Well USA you are doing it again, air the shows but NOT allowing the new shows to air their episodes THEN announce cancellations. This strategy an amazing concept considering most of the shows don't air for 3 - 8 months before new seasons.
