Is 'The Outpost' canceled? Here's why The CW show might not return for Season 4
Part B of 'The Outpost' Season 3 is just around the corner, but the future of the series is looking dark
‘The Outpost’ has been undoubtedly one of the highly popular shows on The CW network and fans are eagerly waiting for the upcoming episodes to arrive. The first part ended with quite a cliffhanger. In the aftermath of all the chaos, the United were all cured.
Falista (Georgia May Foote) is revealed to be alive while everyone, included Zed (Reece Ritchie), Wren (Izuka Hoyle), and Garret (Jake Stormoen), bend the knee to Talon (Jessica Green) as their new queen.
On the other hand, Two and Three look on from a nearby hillside, the black and white kinjes, now united, zoom through some secret coffin-like structure, where they “release the gods".
Part B is set to move forward with the new queen and some burning questions will be answered. However, it is worth noticing that the upcoming set of episodes is not a part of Season 4 and the network is considering them part of the third season. Will the show be renewed for another season? Or the upcoming episodes will serve as the final 13 episodes for the series?
Is ‘The Outpost’ renewed or canceled?
Part B of Season 3 was announced just prior to the premiere. Despite getting mixed reviews from the critics and low ratings, The CW showed a lot of confidence in the fantasy show and ordered 13 more episodes.
The ratings for Season 3 went down considerably as compared to the first two seasons. The first season of ‘The Outpost’ on The CW averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 628,000 total viewers. Meanwhile, the second season averaged a 0.13 rating in the same demographic and 590,000 total viewers.
Season 2 saw a change of -7.69% in demographics while a change of -6.09% in total viewership.
However, Season 3 turned out to be the worst. The third season averaged a 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographics and 378,000 total viewers. A drastic change of -35.87% in viewership for Season 3 means it will be hard for the network to renew the series for another edition.
Bigger shows like ‘Good Girls’ and ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ have been canceled by their respective networks due to low ratings. So, the upcoming 13 episodes of ‘The Outpost’ would have to perform seriously well to even have a chance. As of now, the show has not been renewed or canceled. A decision might be on its way really soon and fans should be ready to accept what is coming. If it is renewed, it is a win-win situation for everyone.
Part B of ‘The Outpost’ Season 3 will be premiering exclusively on The CW on Thursday, July 15 at 9 pm ET.
