On April 24, 2019, The CW officially confirmed that In the Dark had been renewed for a Season 2. Besides, the network has picked up thirteen more primetime series for their respective next rounds. The CW's freshman In the Dark seems to be a mediocre show, yet the network opted to include the comedy-drama series in their upcoming programming slate for 2019-20 television season. No words have been said on the subject of a specific release date, but most likely the 2nd round would premiere in the same period.
In the Dark Season 1 has garnered 0.87 million viewers with a 0.2/1 rating/share among adults (P18-49), during its premiere. We consider such viewership a bit low, even for such a cable network as The CW is. Yet, the indicator of the number of viewing audience has been enough for the network to make positive decisions about another television season. As for the reception from critics, it was mixed and quite ambivalent, according to the data presented by Metacritic, 54/100. Meanwhile, the viewers have rated the show at 6.2/10, the figure, which looks above average.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the reviews from both critics and viewers were positive. According to their metrics, In the Dark holds a score of 7.16/10 and a 70% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated The CW's freshmen at 3.9/5, and have given a 73% approval rating.
In the Dark Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, In the Dark Season 2 release date is yet to be announced. However, also worth noting that The CW rarely changes a time slot for its series. As a result, we don't think that the network is going to shift the show in its schedule, and In the Dark Season 2 thereby is set to premiere in April 2020.
Nonetheless, The CW could have their own vision about when the next season of In the Dark should start. Therefore, we are looking forward to the official news from the network's spokesmen. As soon as The CW reveals more details about the upcoming release date for Season 2, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep me informed.
