There’s no take two, for ABC’s Take Two.
There will be no second season for the crime dramedy, which starred Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian. News of the cancellation comes just two months after the series wrapped its first season run which consisted of thirteen episodes. Take Two premiered in June and aired its Season One finale in September.
Take Two hailed from creators Andrew W. Marlowe and former Castle exec producer Terri Edda Miller. It received a straight-to-series order at ABC last November. According to the Variety, the series averaged 2.71 million total viewers, which made it one of the lowest-rated series of the summer season.
The series followed Bilson as Sam, the former star of a hit cop series fresh out of rehab following an epic bender. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing private investigator Eddie (Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role. But things don’t work out quite as planned when after the press publicizes Sam’s role in solving a high-profile case, Eddie finds his phone ringing off the hook with new clients looking to hire the duo.
The series also starred Aliyah O’Brien, Xavier de Guzman, and Alice Lee.
