The Catch, starring Mireille Enos and Peter Krause, got off to a sluggish start last midseason but got a second-season renewal, largely based on the clout of Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland. The series was retooled heading into Season 2 but the ratings slipped further. The Catch‘s Season 2 adults 18-49 average was a 1.0 rating in Live+7.
Still, there was talk about extending the drama, which had internal support and does well internationally for ABC Studios, and there was an idea pitched for Season 3 that had people excited. But in the end, the network opted to end the series.
