Will ‘The Wall’ Come Back For a Season 2 on NBC?
“The Wall” kicked off its debut season on Dec 19, 2016 on NBC (the official premiere was held on Jan 3, 2017), garnering over 6.5 million viewers, as well as the average, but principally favourable reviews from critics and viewers. The vast majority of fans is likely wondering whether or not “The Wall” will return for a next season on NBC, and if this happens, when should we expect its release date? There has been no official announcement of renewal as of yet. But if you ain’t going to miss the very possible upcoming premiere, we suggest you to subscribe for our automatic notifications, and we’ll keep you informed on the subject.
Frankly, we almost sure that NBC is about to pick up “The Wall” for a sophomore season, given the very strong television ratings of the current season, as well as relying on the fact that January 18, 2017, NBC ordered 20 additional episodes for the first season. Usually, such decision indicates the plans of the television network regarding the renewal of the TV show. However, let’s take a look at some statistics in order to confirm our forecast. Currently, according to IMDb, “The Wall” has a score of 6.6/10 based on over 100 user votes. At the same time, according to Metacritic, “The Wall” has a score of 6.2/10 among the viewers. The pilot episode has drawn 6.532 million viewers, while the official premiere has gained 6.792 million viewers with a 1.73 demo rating among adults (18-49).
Inspired by the Japanese pachinko game, “The Wall” was conceived to “get families excited and change peoples’ lives,” according to the show’s creators. Hosted by Chris Hardwick, the game show follows two-person teams that need to answer various questions correctly, for a chance to have green balls fall down a 40-foot tall wall. The main goal is to win a cash prize, which may increase from round to round. At the bottom of the wall, the ball is able to fall down in one of many slots, with a value from $1 to $1,000,000.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 2)
“The Wall” Season 1 was launched on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 at 8:00PM ET/PT on NBC, and the show’s premiere drew about 6.8 million viewers, as well as has been praised by critics and viewers in general. NBC has yet to announce the decision on renewal or cancellation of the game show. But it’s very likely that “The Wall” Season 2 would take place on NBC, taking into account the data presented above. However, we would like to wait for the official announcement by NBC one way or another.
