While there’s no guarantee as of yet that a Bull season 2 renewal is happening, there are some signs that we might be close to one.
According to a new report coming in courtesy of Deadline, Glenn Gordon Caron of Moonlighting and Medium fame will be taking over as showrunner provided that Bull gets renewed for a second kick at the can. He’s going to serve as a consultant for the remainder of the first season, which should help him get his feet wet in that universe while preparing for whatever the future may hold for the show. Current showrunner Mark Goffman will be putting more of his focus on development at the end of the season.
Showrunner switches are relatively common for shows that are reasonably young, mostly because of the fact that there are several different components that you do have to look at. That being said, in this instance, it’s hard to say what the reasoning is for the switch. We do know that Bull is a fairly solid show that brings a good bit to the table, but simultaneously it’s also a show with an array of different things that could be focused on more. For example, we would benefit from knowing more about the supporting cast, and the show does have to find a way to generate even more buzz and excitement around the outcome of every case. It’s a difficult thing to do, since almost every episode is really putting its stock in whether or not you’re getting a guilty or not-guilty verdict.
If you’re wondering why there is so little doubt when it comes to the future of Bull on the air, it’s really a matter as simple as looking at the ratings. This is one of the top-rated shows on CBS, and is routinely getting a good percentage of its NCIS lead-in in the 18-49 demographic. It also has a star in Michael Weatherly who remains an enormous draw for the CBS base, and with that, not someone you’re going to see the network likely want to get away from anytime soon.
