Ransom Canceled by CBS After Three Seasons

-

CBS has canceled drama series Ransom after three seasons. The third season premiered on February 16 and averaged about 2.3 million viewers each Saturday.

“We’re joyful & lucky to have shared these past three seasons with you. Unfortunately, we have to bid the CriRes team farewell. We loved telling stories about strong, smart characters resolving conflicts with words instead of violence. Thank you for watching,” the show said in a statement.

Ransom starred Luke Roberts as expert hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont whose team is brought in to save lives when no one else can. The cast also included Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor.

The series was inspired by the professional experiences of distinguished crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, who, along with his partner, Marwan Mery, are among the top negotiators in the world.

Ransom was created by David Vainola (Diamonds, Combat Hospital) and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle). Ransom was a Canada-Hungary treaty co-production, produced by Entertainment One (eOne) with executive producers Jennifer Kawaja and Julia Sereny (Sienna Films) and Spotnitz (Big Light Productions). Valerie Pechels and Odile McDonald (Wildcats Productions) executive produced with Daniel Kresmery and György Rajnai (Korda Studios) co-producing.

Ransom was developed in association with Corus Entertainment Inc., with the participation from the Canada Media Fund, and produced with the financial assistance of the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. eOne controls worldwide rights to the series.
