Is ‘The Wheel’ Season 2 Happen on Discovery?
Discovery has launched a brand new survival skills television project “The Wheel,” which kicked off on Jan 13, 2017, garnering over two million viewers. Of course, many fans want to know, whether or not we will see a second season of “The Wheel” on the Discovery Channel, and if this happens, when should we expect its release date? There has been no official news from Discovery on the subject. But if you don’t want to miss the very possible upcoming premiere, we suggest you to subscribe for our automatic notifications, and we’ll keep you informed.
Apparently, “The Wheel” will be returning for a next season on Discovery, given the impressive figures of the show’s premiere. “The Wheel” has gained 2.01 million total viewers, as well as has become “#1 in its cable time period among P25-54 and M25-54,” according to the official data. “Among P25-54, ‘The Wheel’ was the best Friday series premiere on all of cable,” according to Discovery.
“The Wheel” is another spin on the survivalist genre. The TV show follows six contestants who will have to survive in six different isolated locations across South America. Their future depends on the turn of the wheel. The survivalists are equipped only with light, as well as SOS devices. With each turn of the wheel, they will find themselves in another location. The TV show is produced by the Pilgrim Media Group for the Discovery Channel and executive produced by Craig Piligian, Sam Korkis and Joseph Boyle.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 2)
“The Wheel” Season 1 debuted on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel, and its debut drew an impressive 1.13 P25-54 rating and averaged 2.01 million total Viewers, as well as was well received by the target audience in general. Discovery hasn’t announced yet its plans on renewal or cancellation of the survivalist series. But it’s obvious that “The Wheel” Season 2 would take place on the Discovery Channel, taking into account such impressive figures of the current season. However, we would prefer to wait for the official announcement of Discovery.
