CBS drama “Salvation” has been canceled by the network after two seasons, TheWrap has learned.
The Charlie Rowe and Santiago Cabrera-led summer series wrapped its second — and now final — season in September after premiering in June.
The show stars Rowe (Liam Cole), Cabrera (Darius Tanz), Jennifer Finnigan (Grace Barrows), Jacqueline Byers (Jillian Hayes), Melia Kreiling (Alycia Vrettou), Ashley Thomas (Alonzo Carver), Ian Anthony Dale (Harris Edwards).
Here’s the official description for the series: “Salvation” is a suspense thriller that centers on Liam Cole (Rowe), an MIT grad student, and Darius Tanz (Cabrera), a tech superstar, who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows (Finnigan) a staggering discovery – that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. In season two, the secret is out – the world learns the truth about the impending threat of an asteroid on a collision course with earth. The question is: will the truth bring out the best…or the worst in us? The answer, of course, is both.
“Salvation” premiered on CBS in July 2017, and was renewed for a sophomore installment that October. The drama’s second season averaged a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.7 million viewers, according to the “most current” numbers from Nielsen, which include a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.
The series is executive produced by co-creators Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, along with Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Stuart Gillard, Grace Gilroy and Peter Lenkov. The drama hails from CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout.
