Why The Crossing season 2 isn’t happening over at ABC

The Crossing episode 9Do we understand the desire for some people out there to see The Crossing season 2 coming up in the future? Absolutely. However, it’s just not going to happen.

It was weeks ago, prior to the series finale airing tonight, when ABC formally canceled the show. They don’t ever offer up much in the way of an official explanation for such things, but the easiest one to draw here is the same one that you often draw in these sort of situations: Low ratings. If The Crossing had performed well, it feels pretty clear that ABC would not be burning off the final episodes of it on a Saturday.

Unfortunately, this is a series that had a really rough road from the start, largely due to the fact that it premiered very late in the season and had a tough timeslot behind an experimental Dancing with the Stars season that did not exactly work. When you are confronted with these sort of problems, it is very rare that you are going to find a way to stick around in the long-term. It just doesn’t happen. The numbers were a reflect of that, and it stinks to say that because of all of the viewers who did enjoy this show and its unique brand of mystery. It really never had all of that great of an opportunity to stick around in the first place. If ABC had more faith, it probably would’ve aired a little bit earlier on in the fall season.

If there are some loose ends that are out there following the finale — that feels likely, no? — odds are that they will have to be constructed in our minds. Sometimes, that just happens with these sort of high-concept shows that develop plots that are meant to unravel over the course of several seasons.
