'Limitless' Season 2 Release Update: Amazon Ready To Pick-Up?; Drug Theme Causes Final Cancellation? [VIDEO]
"Limitless" Season 2 has been picked by the Amazon, according to reports. But rumors claim that the online streaming platform is skeptical of the former CBS show's drug-related theme. With that, the fans are beginning to speculate many possibilities, including a likely cancellation.
Previous reports suggesting the cancellation of "Limitless" Season 2 had repeatedly been confirmed, hinting that the action-crime-drama show may not happen. In fact, showrunners Bradley Cooper and Craig Sweeny had reportedly been appealing the show to different networks like The CW, Netflix, NBC among others. Although recent reports claim that the negotiations have been so slow, there are indications that it moves forward with FX and Amazon. But Amazon is believed to be likely getting the show to continue with its airing.
"Limitless" Season 2 is reported to have mixed receptions from the viewers, despite the fact that the first season earned praises for its great run. Based on reports, the show's plot was not easy to follow, and that the story was said to be difficult to understand.
Some reviews have reportedly stated that even the show's hero was not enough to save it from the problematic story and the premise. Reports also suggest that networks have been concerned about the risk of the drug element, with fears that the viewers may get the wrong notion that the network advocates the use of these drugs, Mobipicker reported.
Meanwhile, as "Limitless" Season 2 is now being planned, viewers are positive that the new season will be shown immediately. However, there are speculations that the show's renewal may be affected, as Amazon's final decision is still being awaited. Given the fact that the show is about a man who discovers a drug that could unlock the human brain's full potential, the plot is also the reason why Amazon is believed to be holding back.
"Limitless" Season 2 may be rumored to be in the works, but reports also claim that the show needs a place to be aired. Nevertheless, the fans are hopeful that Amazon or any interested networks could see beyond the drug element and focus instead on the entire picture, Chatt Sports Net reported.
