Zoo Renewed Season 3 CBS

Zoo Renewed for Season 3 at CBS

CBS isn’t being cagey: It has renewed Zoo for a third season, ahead of next month’s Season 2 finale.The network announced the renewal Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

To date, the drama’s sophomore run is averaging better numbers (4.5 million total viewers and a 0/8 demo rating) than fellow CBS summertime series American Gothic (2.9 mil/0.6) and BrainDead (3.1 mil/0.5).

In July, Zoo star James Wolk told Michael Ausiello that the show’s two-hour Season 2 finale — which airs Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 9/8c — is a cliffhanger.

“It ends in a way where things could continue,” he said. (Press PLAY on the video below for more.)
