With ABC’s ‘Forever‘ having had only mid-level ratings, there has been some worry surrounding the series as to whether it would live up to its namesake, but it would appear that the series will last at least one full season. That’s right fans! ‘Forever’ isn’t being cancelled and has just received a full season order. If you’ve been on the fence deciding whether to watch this police procedural that stars an immortal in one of the leading roles, then at the very least you’ll have a lot more opportunities with the added episodes so you might want to make a point of checking it out.
While the initial viewership levels weren’t the best, what has helped bring it up the ratings was a very impressive set of DVR views that actually increased 82%.
While our reviewer felt that the show got off to a rocky start, N.C Sanders has really enjoyed the last episode and seems to feel that the series is gaining a solid stride ,so if you can push back a few basic procedural episodes it seems to be worth the watch.
Are you a fan of ‘Forever’? Are glad to hear that it will finish out the first season or do you think nothing should last forever and the series should go the route of ABC’s other current New York-based series, ‘Manhattan Love Story’ and be on its way straight to the cancellation bin? Chime in below!
