Last night’s Season 2 finale of The Lying Game brought many tears to those watching it. Not only because of the emotional moments between Emma and Sutton and of course the shocking ending, but because it’s the last episode of the season and there’s no word yet on whether or not it’s coming back for Season 3. BUT. We’re going to remain optimistic about the possibility of a renewal.
We chatted with showrunner Chuck Pratt, Jr. about this and he praised the fans’ energy in helping to get the show renewed on ABC Family. “There has been a huge Twitter campaign to get the pick-up,” he told us. “Our numbers have been growing the last three weeks, and audience reaction has been overwhelmingly popular. A pick-up seems inevitable, but you never know. Fingers crossed!”
The ratings for the finale episode have been published and they look great! According to Zap2It, “At 9 p.m., the winter season finale of The Lying Game stood as cable TV’s #1 scripted telecast in the hour in Females 12-34 (644,000/1.4 rating), was the #1 original scripted cable TV telecast Women 18-34 (352,000/1.0 rating) and Women 18-49 (500,000/0.8 rating), and overall was Tuesday’s #2 TV telecast in Female Teens (292,000/2.5 rating), behind only Pretty Little Liars.”
No word yet on when the decision to renew will take place, but rest assured we’ll bring you the news the second it’s announced!
