CANCELLED – The Lottery – Season 1
No-one wins as the futuristic drama gets denied a second season.
Lifetime have cancelled their new sci-fi show The Lottery after one season.
The Lottery takes place in the year 2025 when our planet is in the midst of a fertility crisis. Women can no longer bear children and the human race faces extinction. After years of research researchers have been able to fertilize 100 eggs and a lottery is held to determine who can carry them to term. The cast of this thriller includes Marley Shelton, Martin Donovan, Yul Vasquez, Athena Karkanis, Michael Graziadei, David Alpay, and Shelley Conn.
Ratings were low throughout the season, only averaging 625,000 viewers for the season, so it wasn’t a surprise for the freshman show to be canned.
The lottery ran for a total of 10 episodes.
