Silence has finally fallen over The Whispers.
ABC has cancelled the sci-fi drama series, RenewCancelTV understands.
The network has decided not to move forward with a second season of the low-rated drama, with series star Milo Ventimiglia confirming the cancellation.

Despite Season 2 being pitched, the writing was on the wall when ABC decided not to renew cast contracts at the end of June – now the Cancellation Reaper has claimed his prize.
While unsurprising, the cancellation of The Whispers is especially damming as the first (and now only) season ends on a cliffhanger.
Another reason people are cutting the cord and streaming instead of watching tv the traditional way. They just don’t give a show time to develop. I liked the show. Thank goodness CBS renewed Zoo at least I have that one to look forward to next summer.
Wow figures, what goes around comes around. They’ll have bad karma trying to get high ratings with any new series, at least a st for awhile.
I watched it a few times and I was bored to death and I am a huge sci fi, scary movie, horror extraordinaire fan my whole life, but this was just plain bad.

Susan, you can’t watch a show a few times and expect it to be good, of course you will find it boring, you hardly understood what was going on.
We watched the whole season and thought the Whispers deserved renewal. It was one of the only shows that worked through the minds of children plus the story kept us wanting more. I hope some cable or independent like Hulu or Netflix has the good sense to pick this show up!!!
One more thing ABC keep going after more crappy shows that keep you in the bottom of all the networks. How about another go nowhere crappy Shonda Rhimes show like the 40th season of Greys Anatomy
I would love to start throwing out all kinds of expletives here but I’ll hold back. Revolution, gone, no closure, Extant, gone, half-assed finale, The Witches of East End, gone, no closure, and now The Whispers, gone with no closure. And that’s just to name a few that we watched. Getting real tired of this crap. Hollywood needs to bring back the mini-series. Stop rolling the dice on a second or third season for these shows. Do you know why American Horror Story is so popular? IT ENDS IN A REASONABLE TIME AND EVERYONE GETS CLOSURE!!! STOP TRYING TO MILK EVERYTHING PAST 1 YEAR. With all the terrific programming out there on so many channels it’s impossible to gather an audience to make most shows worth carrying on into a 2nd or 3rd season.
But dang, I’m sure there isn’t going to be a problem getting an 85th season of Law and Order SVU!
You’re talking about one of the best series/franchises on TV dude. It sure as heck beat all the ridiculous reality shows still showing!!
Remember ABC was responsible for Lost…. haven’t we all learned from that???
Screw ‘dis. if ABC doesn’t make a series that picks it up or a spin-off, screw ‘dem. I’m eleven. Look how mad I am about this. I’m not watching anything on ABC again. EVER!!!!!! Dang y’all ABC.

Not happy about this!! The Whispers was a great show! I was looking forward to new twists. ABC is really starting to suck.
