Take Two season 2 renewal campaign kicks off: How to help ABC series
While we know that we’re not super-close to the season finale just yet, is it ever too early to start campaigning for a Take Two season 2? We don’t think so!
As a matter of fact, now actually seems like the perfect time in which to get on board the push for another season for many different reasons, starting of course with the fact that there’s enough episodes left this season to make a real ratings impact. One of the biggest issues with many “save our show” campaigns out there is that they often start so late that they give themselves a huge uphill battle. Networks actually want to see signs of growth in the live ratings to have confidence to pick a series up, and not just buzz after the fact since they can’t quantify that.
With that in mind, the best thing that anyone can do right now (especially if they have a Nielsen box) is watch new episodes of Take Two live and try and tweet about it as much as humanly possible. Build some buzz around the show! While we know that it’s summer and it’s a less-than-ideal time to watch TV live, it can go a long way towards helping to get the show back.

Beyond just that, recommend the show to many of your friends! While it is a show set in 2018, the premise and the tone of Take Two is very reminiscent of a Bones, a Castle, or many other semi-comedic procedurals from the past ten or fifteen years. If you knew someone who loved those shows, there’s a good chance they will enjoy this one too. Even if they can just watch via DVR, those ratings still matter.
The good news for Take Two ratings-wise is that the series has been consistent almost the entire season. People who caught the show for the first episode have mostly stuck around, which is great given that the story has gotten increasingly better as it goes along. There is clearly an audience here — we would like to see it get closer to a 0.6 or 0.7 rating, though; if it got there, we’d feel a lot more confident about its odds of coming back. As it is, this is clearly a series on the fence. One thing that it does have going for it is that ABC has a substantial ownership of the show through its studio; therefore, it will have an incentive to want to keep it as opposed to it being produced elsewhere.
The next new episode, “All About Ava,” airs on ABC Thursday night.

September 14, 2018 @ 2:25 pm

Please do not cancel

We all LOVED, LOVED, LOVED “CASTLE” and are still heart broken it was cancelled. LOVE “TAKE TWO”. A season is 23 episodes. Not 13. I expect this to resume in the fall several weeks from now.

Love this show!!! Need a season 2!!!
September 12, 2018 @ 7:05 am
I absolutely love this show! I binged all of the aired episodes in two days. We definitely need to make sure that Take Two gets at least a second season!

Take Two is a refreshing show. Rachel Bilson has to be one of the cutest actresses of all time. She makes the show – Eddie Cibrian is also well cast. Hoping it gets renewed
September 8, 2018 @ 8:16 am
Great chemistry! Fun, entertaining and addictive! Must watch tv. Easy to really care about the characters and get into the show.
September 7, 2018 @ 3:47 pm
Love the show- question shouldn’t be if there should be a season 2- but when will it start!
September 5, 2018 @ 3:21 am
Love Take Two! Very little I like on TV! Please keep it on! Please.
September 4, 2018 @ 12:47 am
Please don’t cancel!! This is a great show!!!
August 31, 2018 @ 2:25 pm
Love this show! Funny, suspenseful and no need for major violence. The cast has great chemistry. Praying for season two, and not next summer. I can’t wait a year. Take two deserves at least two.
August 30, 2018 @ 1:00 am
really annoying show, I hope it’s going to be cancelled. Rachel Bilson seems to have no acting skills.
August 28, 2018 @ 1:40 pm
Love this show! I want a season 2!
August 28, 2018 @ 9:39 am
The show is picking up and worth watching!
August 28, 2018 @ 2:54 am
ABC will be losing out if they do not renew this show. I binge watched the whole first season on Hulu and cant wait for season two to come out so I can record it on DirecTV. I love the connections going on. It is a fiesty cop related drama that just pulls you in. It helps Eddie Cibrion and Rachel Bilson have such wonderful chemistry. I thought for sure they would get together after the naked in bed scene. I want more.
August 20, 2018 @ 3:33 pm
Love this show! The chemistry between Eddie and Rachel is wonderful. And I love Monica and Berto too! Sure hope for season 2!
August 20, 2018 @ 2:23 am
This show is great, its smart, fresh and completely new compared to other cop shows. Definitely deserves a second season
August 19, 2018 @ 8:49 am
Ýes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fell in love with Rachel Bilson from Hart of Dixie and is now my all time favourite show and still disappointed with its cancellation and it would be such a shame to see this brand new show be cancelled after just one season so yes please please please keep it going! SEASON 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m beyond excited and happy that Rachel is back on the screens and putting smiles on our faces and her dynamic with Eddie is fantastic and we all need to see more, the show is awesome and can only get better from here!
August 14, 2018 @ 9:05 pm
We were hooked by the first show. Every show has been entertaining and makes you want more.
Keep gling ‘Take 2!
August 13, 2018 @ 8:51 pm
Absolutely love this show! Please don’t cancel it!
August 12, 2018 @ 6:33 am
Never miss an episode! Love Sam & Eddie together and also Sam’s assistant Monica & Eddie’s tech guy who I can’t remember his name right now. Very entertaining stories!
August 11, 2018 @ 3:53 pm
Definitely would like a season 2. Very entertaining show. Love the characters.
August 10, 2018 @ 12:53 pm
Nice to see Rachel Bilson after Hart of Dixie. Hope there is a season 2 for this show…nice and light-hearted ….
August 10, 2018 @ 5:17 am
Season 2 please even my daughters are hooked to the show!
August 9, 2018 @ 4:15 pm
ABC would be crazy to not continue Take Two! It’s is not only hilarious and fun, but the crimes are real mind-benders.
August 9, 2018 @ 3:22 pm
Definite YES for renewal of Take Two! Love the show and the new faces of Eddie Cibrian and Rachel Bilson. Why haven’t we seen these actors featured more in past few years?
August 9, 2018 @ 11:43 am
Yes for season 2
August 9, 2018 @ 7:57 am
I have been loving Take Two and definitely want it to be renewed!! It’s happened before where a show I was watching was cancelled mid season and it was so upsetting that I never found out what happened. Take Two definitely should stay!
August 9, 2018 @ 4:38 am
Love this show so much. Hope to see a lot more! Please!!!
August 9, 2018 @ 3:19 am
My husband and I love this show! It’s one of our ” can’t miss” programs. Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrion have great chemistry.
August 8, 2018 @ 10:08 pm
Love the show!! Been binge watching it!
August 8, 2018 @ 9:03 pm
I love Take Two! Please let it come back! So many of my favorite shows have been cancelled. It’s getting harder to find shows I like. Great chemistry among cast. Great light viewing!
