THE RIVER: Dead In The Water At Netflix


The River‘s hopes of surfacing at Netflix appear to have sunk, according to the latest reports.

The paranormal series was recently canceled by ABC after one 8-episode season, due to ‘disappointing’ ratings. Prior to official cancelation, the show was courted by Netflix as part of their serialized content building strategy, but the waters have become worryingly still.

Now, according to Deadline, the streaming giant has “passed” on the opportunity to make The River Season 2 — a move that would have been fascinating given the potential opportunities that their digital platform could provide long-form content.

While The River never really hooked this particular seriablogger, it certainly brought something a little different to the table and it would have been interesting to see a fully serialized continiuation of the series. Who knows what Season 2 would have brought?

    “The River” just wasn’t my thing. I got part way through the opener and that’s all I needed to see. I would much rather see that “Jericho” rumour come to fruition. Frankly, I’m not optimistic that J will be revived, either. I file most of these things in the I’ll-believe-it-when-I-see-it-category.

    I think we’ve entered the age where every series that gets cancelled on network TV will spark a Netflix rumour before it can officially fizzle out forever.

    This was a terrific, spellbinding, thrilling show. That brought my teen son and I nights of discussions and bonding. We both enjoyed the cast and the story line. It was something different then the shows out there today, that you can just veg. out and stuff food in your face while falling asleep. No, this show was one you definiately could not fall asleep on. Please Bring back “The River”.

    The show was a littleruff in the first episode but after that I was sucked in big time. From what Im told the show didn’t catch alot of views but that doesnt include the people that DVR all their shows cause they cant wach it at that time. Netflix needs to give it a shot and actually see how many people have alot of interest in the show and they will probablly be suprised to the results. So yes they need to start a second season and continue the show. PLEASE you cant leave us sitting here wondering what the heck happens!!!

Two great shows, the river and terror nova and many more i can think of actually like “the lost room2, “surface”, “V series” the remake, “stargate universe” , need to be brought back etc; i keep hearing the same thing over and over again, not enough ratings. the funny thing is, these all have very strong plots and finished airing before their full stories could unfold. there of plenty of shows out their that don’t even deserve a season one, let alone a season 2 and they are going on strong. It seems to me that all the good shows get discontinued.

    I loved The River!! Really gutted they aren’t considering a second season. Here in the UK, good TV shows are hard to find, and this one really captured me. PLEASE do another series!!!!

    I really hope they get the rights and bring this show back for at least one more season. There were some flaws but the the story has so much more potential. Bring it back!

    Save the River… I recorded all the episodes and watched them all in one day… 8hrs of awesome suspense. And how did they leave us???? Come on… Make a season 2 and end it then if that’s what you want but don’t leave people hanging!! Oh and if it was so bad what are they re-running all episodes now on Chiller?? Boy, are people going to be upset when they watch it now and realize there are no more.

    the river is one of the most thrilling paranormal epic series I’ve watched that is really worth of my time. Please do the second season.

    I didn’t know about this series until lately. But when I saw the first episodes, I was hooked. I’m very sorry that there is no season 2. That’s surprising because there is much less interesting series that goes on for years. This one is very good and it stopped! If the producers had advertised it a little more, they would have get a greater audience, I sure of that.
    You can’t watch a series when you don’t even know that exists.

    For the first time, I judged wrong. Usually after a few minutes of viewing I know whether it is worth watching or not. I’ve missed part one of “The River” and then saw a repeat. The first few minutes bored me and I stopped watching after this short time. WHAT A MISTAKE I MADE!!! Recently, I couldn’t sleep, so started browsing LoveFilm. Found “The River” Series 1 and started watching hoping that it will get me sleepy. After those unfortunate few minutes the action picked up and I got myself sucked into the world of mystery, watching the first 4 episodes in one night and the next four – the following night. NOW I’M GAGGING FOR MORE!!! Although the plot seems to be common, the way the series is done is very innovative. And I have to say – I AM A VERY FUSSY VIEWER!! Please guys, do not judge this series by its first episode. It is really good and original. I am devastated that I am not able to see Series 2, which MUST be there, since Series 1 finished leaving you craving to know what happened next. Poor ratings??? Just because fans expecting creepy zombies were disappointed. This series represents all kinds of paranormal and unexplained phenomena and this eclecticism makes it unique. I hope to see Series 2 very soon.

    With reality shows pushing everything else away, it is so hard to find a decent tv show with this kind of intensity and originality. To lose it after just one season just adds to so many others that could have been great, but were chucked due to bad advertising and/or placement. People still check back now and again, obviously with the posts here and on multiple other websites, to see if anything has been mentioned about a return. There are fewer and fewer tv shows coming out that I can even keep an interest in. Most of the time I find myself trailing off to do something else while stuff is playing in the background, but The River had my attention the entire time. The only reason the numbers were not up on this is because too many people didn’t know about it. Put the show back up with a better time slot and I bet they would find a lot more people catching an interest.

    The River was incredible. I guess most people dont like shows that provoke them to think. They prefer straight forward shows like Supernatural. The networks should really review the basis on which they cancel shows.

    I can’t believe that there is not a 2nd season. I’ve watched this movie in a evening and i think that was special and have something new. I am a fun of Lost movie and the river could have the same success if not better.
