TVLine Items: CBS’ Ransom Cancelled, New Greenleaf Trailer and More

The Ransom demands will not be met: The CBS/Global drama about an elite Crisis Resolution team has been cancelled after three seasons.

The show’s official Twitter account announced the news on Wednesday, writing, “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.”

Ransom this spring averaged 2.3 million total viewers and a 0.26 demo rating on CBS, right on par with its sophomore run. (Season 1, airing Saturdays in spring of 2017, averaged 3.5 mil and a 0.43 rating.)

TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated with the cancellation.
