Let’s start things off here with the following: There is no word as to whether or not a season 2 is going to happen. That’s something that the network may take their time on deciding, especially when you look at the ratings. Despite the show coming from Greenleaf creator Craig Wright, the series didn’t come close to matching the church drama’s numbers. After all, season 1 barely averaged a 0.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and close to 330,000 live viewers a week.
Is there still hope for a season 2? In our mind, it depends mostly on a couple of factors.
Word of mouth – Will OWN believe that viewers will find the show over the next few months? It’s a gamble since there’s a chance they don’t and the ratings do not improvement. Yet, entertainment can be risky sometimes, and it’s good to stand behind your properties in order to find long-term success.
Streaming/DVR numbers – If the show is performing considerably better in those ratings than it is live numbers, there is still a chance it will come back for more down the road.
One thing we are confident in is this: After that finale, viewers are going to want another season. Will there be a sense of gratitude that the show existed at all if it gets canceled? Sure, but there is nothing more frustrating that viewers getting left with something unanswered. The future of Delilah is something that OWN will likely spend a lot of time thinking about, and it could go either way in the end. (Remember that there is also a Greenleaf follow-up in development.)
