All eyes are on the handful of CBS shows still to be canceled or renewed. True Lies is one of those shows, but will Season 2 happen?
When CBS announced its bulk renewals, there were just a few shows missing. One of those was True Lies, which hadn’t even premiered at the time. The lack of inclusion wasn’t that surprising when you consider CBS needed to see what the live viewership and the streaming figures would be like.
So, now eyes are on the series, which is a reboot of the 1994 movie. Is there a chance that this freshman series will be renewed, or is it destined to be a one-and-done series?
Will True Lies Season 2 happen on CBS?
As of right now, CBS has not confirmed if there will be a second season or not. That’s not too surprising with a midseason show. We’re very close to the Upfronts and pilot season.
There is a chance that CBS wants to see the pilots before renewing the show. We’ll likely heard about a decision just before the May Upfronts.
I think there will be some bad news, though. True Lies is the lowest series in the live ratings in both the demo and the audience.
This doesn’t always mean cancellation. After all, CSI: Vegas is also toward the bottom in the live ratings but it performs well on Paramount+ so CBS renewed it. We could see that the streaming figures are good enough to save this spy drama. I just don’t think it has the following that CSI does.
True Lies* airs Wednesdays on CBS in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
