When Scorpion premiered in September 2014 on CBS, the series about a sweet group of crime-working geniuses came as a surprise hit for the network. The show stood out in a crowded field of procedurals by putting masterminds, hackers, mathematicians, and indeed a brilliant little boy at the center of the action. Unfortunately, after four seasons, CBS removed the series — and to make matters worse, it ended on a precipice- hanger. To this day, suckers remain visited by the cancellation of Scorpion, but there is no unrighteous secret behind the show’s early demise.
As is frequently the case with network shows, failing conditions led to Scorpion’s end. The warm-hearted crime series came CBS’ most watched drama in its debut season, according to The Wrap.
Observers sounded to agree — at least at first. While Scorpion snappily set up a passionate fanbase, not everyone stuck around to watch the platoon take on new cases each week. By the time the season 4 homestretch vented, Deadline reported it was among the least-watched CBS shows on air during the 2017- 2018 television season. The decline in viewership was not a commentary on the quality of Scorpion, so much as it was a suggestion of the network’s ongoing issues with getting people to watch their Monday night line-up of scripted chow. At the time, Elementary and Code Black were floundering, too.
The Scorpion cast did not feel shocked by the show’s cancellation. By the time CBS officially canceled Scorpion, the cast sounded to have made their peace with the show coming to an early end. Shortly after the announcement of this was made, Katherine McPhee, who starred as waitress Paige, tweeted,” Thank you so much to CBS for this trip, to my castmates and crew from whom I learned a lot, and to numerous fans out there who supported the show from the very start.”
Where are the cast members now?
Since Scorpion ended with the platoon splitting in half, the cast has moved on to other systems. For her part, McPhee enjoyed a successful run in the Broadway musical comedy Waitress. In October 2020, she blazoned she was preparing for a new kind of part the actress was awaiting her first child with hubby David Foster. In February 2021, she became a mother with her son Rennie.
Meanwhile, Elyes Gabel, who played Walter, has continued taking on challenging new places in shows like Suspicion, while also doing voice work as Star Boy in Justice Leagues. the Fatal Five. And as for expert character actor Patrick, he is been keeping busy with pictures and television shows like Peacemaker and HBO’s Perry Mason reboot.
Nothing will ever take the sting out of Scorpion’s ending for the show’s passionate fanbase, but knowing that the cast is thriving should be small comfort for suckers still wishing for a season 5.
