ABC has opted to cancel Shondaland drama The Catch after two seasons. The series underwent a creative reboot between seasons one and two, opting to embrace the humor and romance embedded in the premise, but the show’s soft ratings from season one never perked up.
Showran by Allan Heinberg (Scandal), The Catch followed Alice (Mireille Enos), who runs a private investigation firm in Los Angeles. After being conned by her fiancee Benjamin (Peter Krause), she sets off to find him and exact revenge.
In addition to Krause and Enos, The Catch starred Sonya Walger (Lost) and John Simm (Intruders). The series is the second short-lived drama from Shondaland following the one-season run of Off the Map earlier this decade. The production house, the most important to ABC, just landed a series order for legal drama For the People, which should be promoted and protected in ways that only Shonda series are on ABC.
The series finale of The Catch airs tonight on ABC. The network will be revealing its 2017-18 schedule on Tuesday, May 16th; you can check out what KSiteTV thought it could look like here.
