Aquarius ratings from Season 2 finale is a precursor to the renewal decision of NBC. Fans petition for Season 3 renewal via Twitter.
Aquarius Season 2 concluded just months ago with what viewers described as a major cliffhanger. Tex, Sadie, Emma and Patty went out to finish a mission but got entangled in a very serious crime.
The periodical crime drama television from NBC created by John McNamara (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) debuted strong with a whopping 5.673 million viewers. For the first two episodes of the series, the show was able to maintain its high ratings.
The downward shift began in the third episode of Season 1. From 5.673, the ratings decreased to 3.904 million viewers, a 31.18% change in numbers.
Since then, Aquarius has been undergoing a downtrend for the ratings. Season 1 concluded with 1.133 million viewers.
Many were surprised when NBC renewed Aquarius for Season 2, at least according to a website. TV By The Numbers claimed that the Season 2 renewal was part of NBC’s experimentation with shows also airing on online streaming platforms.
But the numbers are still high compared to other scripted series. In fact, Season 2 premiere garnered 2.989 million viewers. Season 2 finale however only drew 1.216 million viewers.
On the other hands, while awaiting for NBC’s verdict for Season 3, fans are already up on their feet. Many of the series’ fans are campaigning for the shows’ Season 3 via Twitter. Some fans spearhead the use of the hashtag #RenewAquarius
There were also rumors on the series transferring to a streaming platform after Season 2. However, this detail is not confirmed yet.
Aquarius starred David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak and Grey Damon as Brian Shafe.
Do you think NBC should renew the series for Season 3?
Stay tuned for more news and updates on Aquarius Season 3.
