CBS ‘Limitless’ Officially Found One: No Season 2 on Amazon or Netflix
The drama of network upfronts may have passed us by, but Limitless fans were left in the lurch over the fate of CBS’ TV sequel series, at least until now. Yes, Limitless officially reached its limit at one season, as discussions with other outlets have fallen through.
Despite CBS’ previously vague insistence that Limitless would continue shopping to new outlets, showrunner Craig Sweeny took to Twitter to formally confirm the Jake McDornan-Jennifer Carpenter adaptation had come to an end:
According to The Hollywood Reporter, post-CBS options had included Amazon and Netflix, though both have now formally passed on discussions for a second season.
CBS’ Limitless had followed Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. The series also starred Dexter alum Jennifer Carpenter, Hill Harper, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and more, with Bradley Cooper occasionally reprising his film role.
Certainly one of the harsher cancellations of the season, but was Limitless worth a second go?
