According to showrunner Craig Sweeny, CBS' "Limitless" has officially been cancelled. Variety reports that no other platforms will pick up the show, despite the fact that CBS president Glenn Geller said potential buyers were interested in the property just last week.
I'm truly sad to report that #Limitless will not continue on any platform. Thanks so much to everyone who watched.

Though the show opened strong, it averaged a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.4 million viewers overall in Live+7 by the end of its first season.
Based on the 2011 movie of the same name, “Limitless” followed Brian Sinclar (Jake McDorman) after he discovered the power of the drug NZT, and was subsequently coerced into using his newfound abilities to solve cases for the FBI. Fueled with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined. However, unknown to the FBI, Sinclar has a clandestine relationship with Bradley Cooper’s Morra, who has plans for his new protege.
The series also starred “Dexter’s” Jennifer Carpenter, Hill Harper and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.
