The sci-fi thriller will not return for Season 2.
October 30, 2020
It is being reported that Fox has cancelled neXt. The sad news comes just three episodes into the sci-fi thriller's run, though the move does not come as a complete surprise.
The show was originally targeted for a summer run but was moved to October to help shore up the network's Fall lineup, which was affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Soft ratings through its first few weeks sealed its fate, as it was averaging just a 0.3 in its 9:00pm time slot among adults 18-49.
neXt follows a Silicon Valley pioneer who discovers that the powerful artificial intelligence he created has gone rogue, and realizes it could lead to a global catastrophe. Teaming up with a cybercrime agent, the two begin a fight against an enemy unlike anything ever seen.
Fox is expected to air all of the show's remaining seven episodes in their regular time slot beginning Tuesday, November 17.

THIS is why I never watch anything until it's renewed. I just let the TiVo record the season, then delete it w/o watching when they cancel it.

I follow TV shows and I didn't even hear about this! No wonder no one watched.

From the people that made 24, it had almost that same type of vibe. It was at least decent.

I'm from the UK and this show hasn't been bought yet but I was really looking forward to watching it one day. Fox are really pissing me off lately with the cancellations. I do blame Disney as well. Haven't got a clue. All for the money. That's more actors out of a job in the worst pandemic the world has seen in years. Netflix are just as bad.

This show must have been great, if it only made it to three episodes...

I agree with James and Luis! I really enjoyed this show. And technically, FOX only "aired" one episode. The other two episodes were pre-empted by the World Series. I really enjoyed watching a show that didn't add COVID to its plot. So far the 2020-2021 regular season sucks because you just can't escape from it!
