‘Whiskey Cavalier': ABC and Warner Bros in Talks to Bring Canceled Series Back
Thursday, 23 May 2019 The series finale for “Whiskey Cavalier” may end up being the season finale. ABC and the show’s producer Warner Bros. are in talks to bring the series back, 11 days after ABC canceled the drama after one season.
An individual with knowledge at ABC told TheWrap that the network is considering bringing the Scott Foley-led series back for a second season and that conversations are ongoing. A decision is expected to come quickly, possibly by the end of this week. Warner Bros. declined to comment.
When the show was canceled earlier this month, Warner Bros. was planning to shop the series elsewhere.

Along with Foley, the drama starred “Walking Dead” alum Lauren Cohen, Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams and Vir Das. David Hemingson created and wrote the series and executive produced along with Bill Lawrence, Jeff Ingold and Peter Atencio (the pilot director). Foley also served as a producer.
Before the show’s finale on Wednesday, Lawrence tweeted for fans to save it. “Tonight: great season finale of #WhiskeyCavalier. Maybe check it out? Make this a “season” finale and not a series finale. Just an idea.”

The show got a special preview after February’s Oscars, but at the time of its cancellation, “Whiskey Cavalier” was averaging a 1.2 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 6.3 million viewers, according to the “most current” data from Nielsen, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.
TV Line first reported about the possibility of “Whiskey Cavalier” being brought back.
