Underground,” the critically acclaimed first-year drama about the Underground Railroad and the most-watched original scripted series ever for Wgn America, has been renewed for a second season.

Ratings: Wgn America’s ‘Underground’ Premiere Sets Network Record

14 March 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wgn America’s new drama “Underground” got off to a great ratings start last week, with time-shifting and encores helping it to become the network’s most-watched original scripted entertainment program to date.

In Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, the regular-timeslot debut of the period drama about a group of slaves planning a 600-mile escape from a Georgia plantation averaged 2.3 million total viewers, including 985,000 adults 25-54 (0.83 national rating) — roughly 10 times the network’s primetime average season-to-date. It grew from its same-day averages by 60% in total viewers (from 1.42 million) and by 68% in the demo (from 585,000 or 0.49 rating).

The 2.3 million viewers in L+3 for its regular timeslot premiere puts “Underground” ahead of numerous recent high-profile premieres. It outdrew, for example, Showtime’s “Billions” by 54%, HBO’s “Vinyl” by 105%, Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead” by 256% and FX’s “Baskets” by 30%.

When including three encores last Wednesday, “Underground’s” totals rose to 3.5 million total »

‘Underground’ Creators Hope Series ‘Inspires a Little Bravery in Us’

3 March 2016 11:07 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A choir stood in front of a screen depicting cotton and water, singing “Oh Happy Day” and a collection of African-American spirituals at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night, setting the stage for the premiere of Wgn America’s “Underground,” a new series telling the story of slaves escaping to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

The premiere brought out the show’s lead actors Aldis Hodge, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Christopher Meloni and Jessica de Gouw as well as executive producer John Legend.

While many previous film and TV projects have explored slave narratives, the stars of “Underground” contend the series brings a new perspective to the topic.

“To be called a slave is to be called a thing. It’s like being cattle or a machine,” said Aldis Hodge. “We depicted it from the viewpoint that these people are enslaved Americans, and we celebrate their strengths.”
