Despite the not impressive results of the current season, we, nonetheless, believed that Station 19 has a good chance at least for one more season on ABC. Below is our forecast on the subject.
Generally speaking, as mentioned above, the figures of the premiere were not impressive. The season premiered with two back-to-back episodes has garnered 5.426 million viewers with a 1.10 key demo (P18-49) each. For comparison, the fourteenth season premiere of Grey's Anatomy has gained over eight million viewers. On the other hand, we are talking about a spin-off. Therefore, such difference was entirely due. You may have noted that a backdoor pilot premiered in March has gained 7.52 million viewers. Thus, we have been expecting a bit better results from the show's debut. Nonetheless, in spite all of this, 5.5 million viewers is not such lousy indicator for any premiere on ABC.
The reception of the first season of Station 19 looks even worse. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show's score is 6.17/10 and a 58% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated Station 19 at 2/5/18%. Meanwhile, on Metacritic, the statistics look more optimistic but still average, 55/100 and 5.0/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, the series rating appears to be almost the same, 5.3/10 ~ 500 votes. All these data don't look excellent, isn't it? Of course, you may argue that these figures don't reflect the real attitude of the target audience to Station 19. Nonetheless, ABC should take these statistics into account, before the decision on the future of the action-drama series.
Summing up, Station 19 showcased bad results as a freshman on ABC. But we almost sure that the national broadcaster would give a chance for the show to get at least one more season. Station 19 has garnered an average amount of viewers during its premiere; the response from critics and viewers was ambivalent and even negative. But still, Station 19 ideally fits the ABC lineup. So we doubt that the network is going to ax the spin-off series after just one season. We will have to wait for a while before the official announcement from ABC. But the decision would likely be in favor of renewal.
Station 19 SummaryIf you have not watched this action-drama television series on ABC yet, we suggest you read a brief overview of Station 19 below. Otherwise, please scroll down to get acquainted with our forecast on the subject of the possible release date for a sophomore season of the show.
The story focuses on Andy Herrera, a devoted and fearless firefighter, who is working at Seattle's Station 19. She is a daughter of the station's head, Pruitt Herrera, besides. Captain Pruitt has been serving as a mentor for his daughter and lieutenant Jack Gibson for years. Jack is brave and handsome. That's why an affair has suddenly flared up between them. The action-drama series thereby follows a group of heroic firefighters at Seattle's Station 19, and describes their personal and professional lives, from the captain to the newest recruits.
On The Possible Release Date For Season 2 Of Station 19We assume that Station 19 could return for Season 2 already this fall as the first season of the series consists of just ten episodes. Of course, it could take more time to produce one more season of the series.
Nonetheless, we doubt that the premiere is slated for next winter. However, we don't rule out the premiere in March 2019 as well. Therefore, anyway, we are looking forward to the decision by ABC on the subject of renewal or cancellation of the series. The data above thereby is nothing but our forecast, which, however, is based on the solid ground such as statistics. We'll update this page as soon as ABC releases more data on the subject. For now, stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed.
