The action-packed crime American drama Scorpion has been made for network CBS by Nick Santora. The producers for the show comprised Marco Black, Kevin J. Hynes, Clayton Townsend, Agatha Aro Warren, Adam Higgs, Scott Manson, Troy Craig Poon, Don Tardino, and Rob Pearlstein. Initially, it was supposed to be the variation, but on a dramatic note, of the popular comedy series The Big Bang Theory.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the show holds a rating of 42% based on the reviews of 48 people, while Metacritic has given it a 48/100 score based on 24 critics. But what is it with the fifth season of the show? Will it ever be out? Or will it be gone forever post-four season? To find out, keep yourself glued to the article!
What is the Show Scorpion All About?
The first season of the show Scorpion aired in September 2014 on CBS. The story had a bunch of people that were either mathematicians, engineers, or hackers. The crime drama had an impressive cast comprising Elyes Gabel, Katharine McPhee, Eddie Kaye, and Jadyn Wong Thomas.
The story actually revolved around the protagonist, essayed by Elyes Gabel, who tries to solve crime cases worldwide and eventually save people’s lives. The story is based on the life of the show’s executive producer, Walter O’Brien, who happens to be a computer expert.
Is Scorpion Not Happening After Season 4?
From the very beginning, Scorpion had a shaky start and had to maintain itself fairly well for the four seasons. It was taken a good crime show by the viewers when it started to telecast. The poor reviews and viewership began after season 2. The low ratings became the reason that CBS never took the show post-season 4. Almost four years ago, we were able to last witness the team fighting crime and saving people’s lives.
But like any other show, Scorpion did have its fanbase, to whom the cancellation of season 5 was disheartening news. So much so that they even tried the petition for its renewal but got no response. Even the cast members were sad by the show’s termination so suddenly and said heartfelt goodbyes to the fans and other members.
Will, there be Season 5 of Scorpion, or We Won’t be able to See it Again?
The previous fourth season of Scorpion was released back 4 years ago in 2017. The season gained poor viewership compared to the other shows that aired on CBS at the same time. Thus, owing to all this, the network never spoke about renewing the series for the fifth installment, and till date, there haven’t been any further updates too.
But let’s not forget that famous streaming giant Netflix owns the popularity to bring back the long-lost series, and you never know when Scorpion hits them, and they plan to renew it for season5. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that! But till then, the 5th edition of the show remains canceled and won’t be happening any time soon.
Seldom does a series take ownership of me…. and my wife? well, that’s even more rare. What I have found is that Scorpian is not so much a unique entity, but one that’s scarce in the industry. I would imagine that many people in TV-land don’t always understand the quick-firing jargon of the scientific, mechanical and mathematical data and theories that are thrown at them by this cast . And hats off to this cast for constantly pulling that off! But you don’t necessarily have to understand, but to just watch-and-you’ll-see… as there is “Paige” to interpret. The series starts off with a huge bang; which brought my wife and I from retiring at 10pm, to seeing just shy of 3am. The chemistry between these actors I find to be phenomenal. There are several motifs presented that consistently develop episode by episode giving this series a beautiful dynamic that most other series fail to ascertain. So what we have here, once again, is the voice of the almighty dollar’ whereby, probably, most people just “don’t get it” and shy away… bringing down ratings. Maybe I’m wrong, but it’s just the way I see it. All in all, it would be a crying shame to see it NOT be presented for a fifth season. It would “kind’a be nice” Scorpian all back together…. all their woes worked out and “love and intelligence prevail”…
After binge watching this show for nearly a month watching all four seasons only to learn that it ends the way that it has. I finally find a show that I can actually relate to. All over ratings is the reason why they left this cliffhanger. Shame on you CBS how’s this for ratings, before watching any show I will research it to make sure CBS doesn’t have a hand in it. If CBS has a hand in the show that I’m going to watch next I won’t even download it let alone pay to watch it. How’s that for your rating CBS?
I couldn’t agree more! I watched it when it was on the air and I have binge-watched it since. … The cancelation of this show is how I figured out what CBS stands for: it is, now and forever, the “CAN’T BE SENSIBLE” network !! They put the show up against a wildly popular one (that I NEVER watched) and then used the ratings as an excuse to shut it down. They’ve done that to many shows I really enjoyed, and it made me just as upset then as this one does now. It is a shame that the dumbing-down of America has to affect those of us who enjoy intelligent, humorous, well-scripted, and well-acted shows. The thing that makes me most upset about this cancellation is HOW IT ENDED – it didn’t. It left us with a cliffhanger – or a tragedy. Not good, CBS. Cruel and unusual. Walter (the real one) , how could you have let this happen?
I freaking can’t believe I will never get to know if Happy gets to have a baby. I absolutely love this show, and can not understand why they would cancel such a rare find! The cast completely fit perfectly together. It’s sad that they did not Appreciate the show as much as the fans did.
It’s was a good show. Even better to stream. Would love to see it picked up on a streaming app anywhere.
Love this show. Have the producers ever said what would’ve happened if there had been a Season 5? It broke my heart when it ended on a cliffhanger.
I just binge watched all seasons, very disappointed how this ended. Please bring it back. Paige and Walter need to make up.
I am not a binge watcher but I could not quit watching this show. Did Happy and Toby adopt? What happened with Sly, Florence, Paige and Walter? Did the two companies join forces? We need a season 5.
my daughters (13&9) and have just finished binge watching this even my partner was sucked in to the wholesome wonder of team Scorpion… absolutely gutted theres no series 5…
Scorpion was a good TV show I had seen before. Good stories / good casts / good program …. I love them all . I want to see Walter with Paeige , Happy and Toby baby. Sal & Raphel ….lovely homeland agent Caleb….we “re family together. Even I came from Asia .
Mr Netflix , please reviving back this long lost shows time and back to us again.
I Hope this dream come truth. Never say Never.
Lovely and awesome show …please go on.
We need positive power in this time . We’re scorpion!
I just finished watching scorpion and that series had me so stuck in the way that it ended is crazy I do feel like CBS Should come out with more seasons I got so into it and they way it ended should not have ended that way so please CBS come out with more seasons
My husband and I loved scorpion. My boys even enjoyed watching it. My husband and I are totally opposite. It is very hard for us to find a show we both absolutely love to watch together. We really could relate to the show in our relationship. My husband has a high IQ and I’m normal. It really helped us understand things about each other better. It is true love and we see how hard we have worked to be married 20 years. Watching Scorpion will help our future too. Now I can understand why my husband is the way he is. I really hate the way it ended and knowing now I will never be able to find out how it worked out for season five. I really think someone should bring Scorpion back. I’m so sick of CBS. Everytime I find something I like to watch (which isn’t often) they decide it isn’t worth bringing back. If it gets my attention it is definitely worth bringing back. I don’t know if I will watch anything CBS again because this will never stop. I will keep hoping for more seasons of Scorpion.
I’ve never heard of this show before. I found it on Amazon Prime last week and decided to watch it. I’ve been hooked, as soon as I come home from work I stay up and watch 2 or 3 episodes after my bed time! Sad to say I just watched the last episode of season 4. Really wish they made a season 5!
I love this show when itWas on. I have since watched it 3 more times at different intervals. Please bring it back for season 5. Love all the characters they’re great. It would be a shame not to see them even in season 5.
Simply awful the way this ended. If you know you’re going to cancel a show, at least wrap it up with some kind of closure.
Really enjoyed watching this series. Smart, well acted, great character development. And the left with this horrid feeling.
Badly done CBS
I’ve watched scorpion enough times that just by listening I can remember mostly what is happening on the screen. So for example while I’m typing this comment, the last episode of season 4 is just ending and I don’t need to keep my eyes aimed at the TV.
The main reason I’m posting here is that I don’t think CBS reads every forum. I think we need a more direct approach.
This first link has already over 40,000 people that have signed a petition to CBS!!!
The 2nd link is a list of ways to get attention to bring a show back…
3rd link is what it says it is. Streaming services track things like when you start an episode and then switch to another show in the middle, or you watched the first 5 episodes of the season and never came back. It all goes into the decision making.
Certain people have more influence than you might think if a show stays on the air or gets brought back. If the spouse of an executive producer likes one show more than another and its a coin toss which show gets another season….. Happy spouse, you keep your house!!!
Just restarted the series over again. Season 1 Episode 1. They look so much younger in the first series.. LOL
that’s totally true man
Scorpion is fantastic! To hell with the borish critics who have nothing better to do in their lives!!! What the hell happens with Mark Collins?!? Get SEASON 5 OUT ALREADY.
Was underperforming? If you took a #1 show and gave it the worst timeslot 10pm Monday don’t you think you’d lose viewership. To top it off putting leadin shows in front of it that can’t hold an audience or give any support to Scorpion you might ask yourself why CBS did drive Scorpions audience away. FYI not long after ScorpionCBS was cancelled VIACOM made its move to buy CBS. TBT Scorpions WORLDWIDE audience never faltered and still grows today. Now why don’t you find any articles that write about what I have written about here. Well there’s alot of Scorpion haters out there . Mainly the CBS executives.
Just did finished the marathon watch of 4 seasons. Had a number of sleepless nights doing non-stop watching of some episodes. It’s a super series. I’m not an advid reader but so interested in where else the story and characters developed I would even read online plots to continue the story. Star Trek you could wait for the next episode. But the action and cliffhangers just kept you glued to the TV. I’m very disappointed that it ended. I hope someone in the network will bring this back.
I just finished watching scorpion now, damn that show is good! you need to bring it back. people are loving it even though it is cut off. we need season 5 please people xxx
I wish they would bring back season 5. I’m on season 4 episode 3 for the first binge live this show. I definitely would watch another few seasons of this.
please don’t watch the last episode, unless you can find a storyline after the season 4 finale
