    "Limitless Cancelled: No Season 2 on 'Any Platform,' Says EP


    Limitless has a limit, after all.

    After failing to get a Season 2 renewal from CBS, the series has run out of options.

    “I’m truly sad to report that Limitless will not continue on any platform,” executive producer Craig Sweeney tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “Thanks so much to everyone who watched.”

    Per The Hollywood Reporter, both Amazon and Netflix passed on picking up the CBS drama.

    The series’ season finale — which now will serve as its series finale — aired April 26.

    I'm suprised. If only a few of Howards 30,000,000 listeners tuned in it would have been a hit. And Ronnie was very believable as a 70 year old FBI agent.

    I liked the show. You had to be patient for the first couple of episodes though.

    Watched the first couple of episodes and it got boring pretty quickly so it had little chance of survival on arrival.

    Let's take a good movie and water down the fuck out of it so it becomes just another procedural drama

    The only network drama I can sit through is Criminal Minds and it's only because I jerk off to Paget Brewster

    I never liked Limitless comedic style. It was too much of a farce instead of a serious show that featured a guy with extraordinary powers. You can insert some humor into plots like they do with Ironman in the movies or The Flash on CW. What you can't do is constantly insert music video and fantasy pieces into every episode. I gave up after 3 or 4 episodes.

    If the FBI had a senior auxilliary corps, and eliminated facial hair and height regulations.

    I met Ronnie at Harrahs casino in AC, he was a nice enough guy, pretty friendly.
    But man that video clip of him acting makes me wanna slap him repeatedly until he cries.
    Not to mention he looks like a child in an oversized FBI Halloween costume.
