Crossbones Season 2? Nope, Season 1 Finale Will be Series Finale as NBC Show Canceled

Crossbones wraps up season 1 on Saturday night with the season finale, and fans are wondering whether there will be another season.

Unfortunately, NBC has already canceled the show due to low ratings.

In fact, the network shifted the final two episodes (back-to-back season finale) from Friday night to Saturday night.

The show started with almost 5 million viewers and 1 million in the key 18-49 age bracket, but quickly dipped and hasn’t been above 3 million viewers since episode 2.

The season finale episodes will start at 8 p.m. and run through 10 p.m. EDT.

Check out the descriptions for the final episodes below.

Episode 8 — “Crossbones”

Blackbeard sets sail, setting the endgame in motion… and testing the loyalty of his crew to the limits and beyond. Back on Santa Compana, Kate trusts Tom Lowe with a startling request… that leaves him minutes to save both their lives. 

Episode 9 — “Blackbeard”

Fire rains down on Santa Campana as Blackbeard (John Malkovich) risks all against William Jagger’s (guest star Julian Sands) maniacal attack. Lowe (Richard Coyle) must choose between saving the people he loves, the man he admires…. and the legacy Edward Teach has built.
