CBS Cancels 'Instinct'

Some sad news for Instinct fans this morning, as word is out that CBS has cancelled the procedural drama after two seasons. Series creator Michael Rauch took to Twitter to make the announcement, which comes with three episodes remaining in the show's run.
The hour-long series premiered last year as a mid-season entry. Airing Sunday nights, the show struggled in the ratings amid tough competition. CBS even briefly pulled it from the schedule, prompting a cancellation scare, but ended up issuing a renewal instead. The show returned this June for a summer sophomore run, but viewership this time around has tapered off substantially.

CBS Renews 'Instinct'

CBS gave some good news to fans of Instinct this morning, picking up the crime drama for a second season. The renewal is a bit of a surprise, as close observers had noted that the network had pulled the series from its schedule next week. But all is well, as new episodes will resume airing on Sunday, May 27 to finish off its freshman run.
Cumming plays Dr. Dylan Reinhart, a former CIA operative who ends up teaming up with NYPD detective Lizzie Needham, played by Novakovic after his first book is used by a serial killer to commit his crimes. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially butt heads, they soon realize that they make a great team if they learn to trust their instincts.
Look for Season 2 of Instinct in the 2018-2019 television season.
