Will CBS Renew ‘Ransom’ for Season 2?
“Ransom” kicked off on CBS on Jan 1, 2017, garnering over seven million viewers, but not impressive reviews from critics and viewers. In spite of this, we believe that millions of loyal fans of the crime drama series try to find out, whether or not we expect “Ransom” Season 2 on CBS, and if this happens, when will its release date? CBS hasn’t yet published any news on the subject. But if you aren’t going to miss the possible premiere, you can sign up for our automatic notifications already now, and we’ll inform you asap.
Inspired by the true lives of the professional negotiators, “Ransom” centres on Eric Beaumont (Luke Roberts), a gifted hostage negotiator, who is able to take the situation under control when no one is able to help. He is a sophisticated psychologist and able to predict the possible further steps of the criminals. But such a tense work affects Eric’s personal life and his relationships with relatives. The TV series is created by David Vainola and Frank Spotnitz, who also serve as executive producers jointly with Jennifer Kawaja, Julia Sereny, Valerie Pechels and Odile McDonald.
