Following tonight’s finale, is there a good chance at a Bluff City Law season 2? Should we expect it to be renewed or canceled? Within this piece, we’re going to do our best to offer up at least a little bit more insight on that subject.
While we don’t want to be the bearer of bad news immediately, we should go ahead and say this: We wouldn’t be altogether optimistic about the series’ future. After all, the fact that tonight is the finale is a pretty troubling sign for the future. If the ratings were better, wouldn’t you think that NBC would’ve gone ahead and ordered more? Probably. That’s at least what other networks have done so far this fall.
In terms of the raw ratings for this season, Bluff City Law has averaged overall a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic … and that’s a difficult number for a number of different reasons. For starters, new shows tend to decline moving into a second season, and this is already one of NBC’s lowest-rated dramas. It’s really only comparable to The Blacklist, and that is a show that is airing on Friday night and separate from any sort of major competition. That gives you a good sense of the struggles here. Bluff City Law also had a much better lead-in courtesy of The Voice, which has tended to help a lot of other shows in the past.
If there is just the tiniest reason to hope for more down the road, it’s this: No one has officially canceled Bluff City Law just yet. There’s still a theoretical opportunity for it to come back … but the key word there is theoretical. There’s no real reason to think that NBC will end up keeping it with everything else that they’ve got going on.
Would we love for there to be more new episodes? Sure, but this is where we remind you a little bit of the prevailing message here — change the world. That’s on the poster above and, in the end, we hope the show encouraged you to fight for what you believe in. That’s a way for its story to pay forward for viewers for many years to come.
