......'Debris'.....canceled by NBC......


Debris Cancelled After 1 Season at NBC

....NBC won’t be picking up any more Debris: The hard sci-fi drama has been cancelled after one season, our sister site Variety reports.

Created by Fringe showrunner Joel Wyman, Debris in its 13-episode freshman run averaged shy of 2.8 million total viewers and not quite a 0.4 demo rating. Out of the 14 dramas NBC has aired this TV season, it ranks No. 10 in the demo (besting The Blacklist, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Good Girls and the acquired Nurses) and 11th in total audience.

The season/now series finale introduced an ominous INFLUX leader, named Otto and played by Fringe favorite John Noble, and left viewers puzzling over Brill and Dahkeya’s plans for some “other” iteration of MI6 agent Finola Jones.

“I’m so happy that [John is] on board because it’s a great character and where he goes and how he expands is really complex,” Wyman told TVLine. “[Otto] is very, very, very, very, very knowledgeable in things that nobody else is, and there are reasons for that that we’re going to get into.”

In a midseason TVLine Q&A, series co-lead Jonathan Tucker spoke directly to sci-fi fans’ concerns about Debris‘ fate, saying, “Some people are like, ‘Will NBC cancel it, before it has time to get [where it’s going]?’ I can’t speak to that with the degree of confidence that I can having read all of the scripts and having spoken to Joel [Wyman], who knows the last line of the first season and knows the last scene of the last season, but I can say the partnership with NBC, up until this point and particularly after the premiere, has been remarkable

“The networks understand, now more than ever, that people are consuming content in a very different way,” Tucker added. “They recognize that there might be a whole group of people that are not going to watch a single episode of Debris until we conclude our 13 episodes, and then they’re going to binge it all on Peacock [streaming service]. They’re being patient in that respect.”.....



just......rubble now........?!

Enjoyed the first season (?) of Zoey... this one not as much... no surprise its low.

But prob has a small production budget vs Debris which scored higher. and was meh. Taking too long to get to the point. Not sure why after an entire season I still don't get WFT the show is actually about.... or what the point is.

My impression is that they had no plan going in. They threw some random stuff out there and when little of it congealed, they threw everything they had into the last episode... and totally failed to accomplish anything with it.

I hear this and similar sentiments and it baffles me. I'm enjoying the show because it's mysterious. It's a journey, but I have faith, based on what I've seen so far, they would have got us there in the end.

I am not at all confused by the plot so far, and I'm fine with the slow burn pace, as it has a lot of moving parts. I genuinely don't know. Maybe it's a tolerance built up growing up with shows that usually lasted years, as opposed to the more disposable nature of shows today?

I love the labyrinthine nature of the show's structure and feel while there's much to be disclosed, they've fed us enough morsels to easily hold my interest.

I'll miss the show greatly.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'm only halfway through, so I'm not as invested in it.

Regardless, I feel the same way as BB.

My one misgiving is that I don't care all that much for the lead guy.

Maybe that'll change by the end of the series.

Unfortunately, it will be — the end of the series.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I never said it was too mysterious.

It's not at all mysterious to me. It's nonsense.

There's a difference.
