No Season 2 for the sci-fi drama.
May 27, 2021
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled Debris after just one season. The sad news comes three days after the sci-fi drama wrapped its 13-episode freshman run. The move isn't a complete surprise though, as the show struggled to find a sizeable audience despite generally positive feedback from critics.
From 'Fringe' executive producer J.H. Wyman, the hour-long series follows a world where mysterious wreckage has fallen to Earth from outer space. An international agency, as well as other mysterious parties, try to figure out where it came from and what is behind it, as each fragment has an unpredictable effect on those who find it, changing their lives in unexpected and dangerous ways.

I think shows like this don't belong on regular tv as a week to week show. The shows that do the most ratings are usually the ones that follow something for one episode and aren't continuous and require you to watch every episode. If you're watching streaming though, you can just go to the next episode and binge watch whenever you want. I think that's just the new way to watch and networks have to realize that since they cater to demographic ratings they just can't do certain shows on their network and should leave them to streaming.

This sucks. I was getting into this show, but I was always fearful it would be cancelled because it doesn't have famous leads who can be considered conventional hotties, and the concept needs an audience with brains... Crap (in retrospect) like Bones get 10+ seasons because they have "hot" people in lead roles, while this one has brains and is high concept but not conventionally pretty leads so it gets cancelled. Sucks.

I figured this would get canceled. It reminded me of Fringe but it kept getting compared to X-Files. I knew their days were numbered when they added John Noble to the cast as a minor character. He is an actor with depth and charisma (even as a villain) but was completely waisted on the show. No series ending. No explanations. No conclusions. This is why people wait and binge shows. Why get invested in a show that leaves you hanging?

I really liked "Debris". It seems like all the tv shows out there are: police, hospital, CSI, or fire departments. There is no variety. The only sci-fi out there are based on comic books. Why won't any of the networks create a sci-fi show, and keep it? So frustrated over networks and their lack of foresight, that there are other viewers out there, that enjoy more than first responder tv shows.

@Michael You're feeling was perfectly correct!

I wanted to watch it but had a feeling it was going to be yet another solid sci-fi that doesn't last more than one season.

That sucks. Better than Manifest.

@Ed Gordon I thought the same thing about Manifest, just hope it gets some kind of ending before it comes to an end!

@Pat Yes! Have been watching and loving it!

The most irritating thing about this show was the high decibel crescendos preceding each station break. I prefer shows that have little or no music leading up to a commercial. It feels cheap and manipulative when they decide to force the storyline like that.
