First, the mystery-themed thriller drama managed to attract enough viewing audience. Emergence Season 1 premiere has garnered 4.12 million viewers with a 0.7/4 key demo/share among adults (P18-49). Despite that such figures are rather average for the national broadcaster, we nonetheless treat them as more than favorable. At least, if the viewing audience doesn't drop below the mark of 3.5 million viewers per episode within the rest part of the season, we bet that ABC will be forced to renew Emergence for one more season.
Next, it's worth mentioning that Emergence has received the critical acclaim. Both critics and viewers were entirely satisfied with the show's premiere, and this factor no doubt plays in favor of renewal. Emergence Season 1 holds a score of 6.61/10 and a 91% approval rating from critics, based on the statistics provided by Rotten Tomatoes. At the same time, on Metacritic, Emergence holds a score of 69/100 and 4.6/10, among critics/viewers, respectively.
Though you see that viewers have met the show quite controversial, their rating mostly depends on the number of people who were lucky to rate the mystery series. We're sure that their rating would be stable soon. Finally, an overall score of Emergence on IMDb is also pretty high, 7.3/10 based on approx. 500 votes.
Summing up, in our opinion, all indications are that there must be at least one more season of Emergence. Both critics and viewers have written mainly positive reviews, while the television ratings were acceptable. Given the data above, we tend to believe that Emergence Season 2 is just a matter of time. We we right or wrong, we will see.
Emergence Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, we don't rule out that ABC will opt to pick up Emergence for a Season 2. But when might we expect the upcoming premiere in such a case? It's unclear to date how much episodes the 1st round of Emergence contains. The production cycle is very depending on the number nonetheless. Therefore, in case of renewal, we have two possible scenarios. If Emergence Season 1 consists of 10-12 episodes, we might expect Emergence Season 2 already this winter or next spring. However, if we are talking about the full season consisting of 24 episodes, the development could take no less than a year. In such case, we will see Emergence Season 2 only next fall, in September 2020, given the current schedule of the series.
But still, please bear in mind that the data above is only our forecast. And that's why we are looking forward to the official news from ABC. As soon as the national broadcaster provides more reliable data on the subject of Emergence Season 2 as well as a specific release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
