However, in the United States, the series was noticed by a dazzling start: the highest audience since 1999 for a new drama broadcast on NBC with more than 18 million viewers on the 1st episode.
Jeff Rake, the show’s director, initially sold his show to NBC with a six-season plan. After its cancellation, the latter only hoped for one thing: that it be fished out by a streaming platform. « I am devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. The fact that we were arrested right in the middle is a punch in the guts, to say the least. We hope to find a new home. You, the fans, deserve to have an end to your story He said on Twitter.
