Alan Cumming on cancellation of “Instinct” by CBS: “I’m grateful for two seasons of fun and gore”

View this post on Instagram

So the word is out. @instinctcbs will not be returning for a third season. Almost exactly three years ago I was sent a galley copy of a book by @jamespattersonbooks and @howardroughan and then I met the show runner @mbr34 who was to adapt it for TV and I jumped in. And I’m still in, for two more episodes tomorrow and the last one ever next Sunday. And while I’m sorry I won’t be getting to play with @bojnovak and the rest of the amazing cast and crew again, I’m grateful for two seasons of fun and gore and feeling like a dandy thanks to @danlawsonstyle’s costumes, and selfies with corpses and vegan options at catering and Lala’s occasional guest appearances in the police station when she got bored in her basket beneath my desk. I’m also proud to have played the first every leading character in a US network drama who is gay. Yes, really. Because of @instinctcbs millions of people will have seen a same sex marriage portrayed for the first time and I hope we changed and opened some minds in the process.

  1. I’m going to miss Instinct. It was a fast moving clever drama with just enough of a comedic touch.

    I really like the show. I loved the premise and of course Alan. Loved him in The Good Wife and countless other performances. I love the supporting cast even the eye candy of Travis Van Winkle. Yea, he was great to look at but Daniel Ings-Alan’s husband on the show-did you catch him in Sex Education (Netflix)-The Crown-and Michael B. Silver-from Royal Pains-are more my speed. The gay aspect of the show was just the way it was. No one thought twice about it. Oh, the consultant is gay and has a rugged, sports-loving husband, owns a bar, eats pizza with his hands instead of a knife and fork-yes I caught that. And they are going through a difficult time because they want to adopt a baby. I could have used a little more direction for the female lead Bojana Novakovic. She came across as shrill at times. I guess the time of a slow build of audience acceptance/appreciation is over. One has to be a hit right out the gate and your demographics has to be on point. If one looked at some of the “hits” in the past, they were not winners from Season 1-Episode 1.
