Intelligence, the high tech show with advanced technology and features is not coming back to season two. Did we want it to? Some of us surely do.
Unfortunately, this Josh Holloway series did not enjoy as long a run and Lost did. Sometimes, people luck out. So is the case with Intelligence. This CBS series was called off thirteen episodes.
In this show, Gabriel Vaughn (played by Holloway) is a very high-tech intelligence operative. That is not all though. This operative has been enhanced with a super-computer microchip that is present in his brain. This brain planted chip allows him to connect directly and tap into the global information grid. That is a pretty exciting and fresh plotline.
- Josh Holloway as Gabriel Vaughn, an ex-Delta Force operator, implanted with a chip that allows him to access the Global Information Grid.
- Marg Helgenberger as Lillian Strand, Director of the U.S. Cyber Command.
- Meghan Ory as U.S. CyberCom Special Agent Riley Neal, an ex-Secret Service agent assigned to protect Gabriel from external threats.
- Michael Rady as U.S. CyberCom Special Agent Chris Jameson
- John Billingsley as Shenendoah Cassidy, the neuroscientist responsible for creating the microchip that was implanted in Gabriel’s brain.
- P. J. Byrne as Nelson Cassidy, son of Shenendoah Cassidy and one of the scientists working on the Clockwork Project.
- Tomas Arana as Adam Weatherly, Director of National Intelligence.
- Lance Reddick as Jeffrey Tetazoo, Director of Central Intelligence
- Peter Coyote as Leland Strand, father of Lillian Strand
- Zuleikha Robinson as Amelia Hayes, Gabriel’s wife and a former CIA field officer.
- Faye Kingslee as Mei Chen
After the show Hostages did not succeed, the network was hoping and praying that Intelligence will bring a boost to the ratings in a bid to fill their Mondays at 10 pm timeslot. Sadly, the same did not happen to them. Despite some impressive star talent and special effects, the show was not able to draw enough viewers to continue it.
The network debuted it after NCIS on one Tuesday night, and it brought decent numbers through the case changed after it got moved to its regular Monday night slot.
The season one of 13 episodes averaged a 1.3 demo rating with 6.85 million viewers, making it one of the lowest-rated shows on the network.
So that is one show that we will never see again. But we are not exactly sad about it. Maybe something better is on the way.
