The mid-season break is coming to a close and FlashForward is returning on March 18th with the double-sized episode of “Revelation Zero.” During this ‘break’, a lot has happened on the sets of FlashForward.
The show’s production was halted for revamping, it had it’s season cut by one episode, (As did ‘V‘), showrunner David Goyer left, then they later added 3 new showrunners. Added isn’t the correct word. More liked looked inside the office to promote from within. They “promoted head writers Lisa Zwerling, Tim Lea & executive producer Jessika Borsiczky to the status of showrunner.
That’s nuts folks! Obviously when a show has that much flux, something is amiss, or the ratings aren’t up to snuff, and that’s the case here. The ratings for FlashForward tallied up to something like 2.1 for adults in the 18-49 category, which is one of the all important spending categories of the population.
I have to wonder if they’re rethinking their hopes to get 3 to 5 seasons out of a show that will resolve this season’s mystery by the end of the season? It ain’t Lost folks. That’s worn it’s welcome out in recent years, though they are starting to actually answer more questions this year… finally.
The upcoming March 18th episode of FlashForward is titled “Revelation Zero” and is a 2-parter, both of which will be airing this night.
