Disappointing Results and Reasons for It
The main issue for exposing in front of us is ratings. What is the reception? Are you aware of the low figures and negative opinions towards this criminal drama? If you are not, we are unfortunate to disappoint you. The series ratings leave much to be desired. The viewership is low – 1 million people on average. Critics, as well ordinary watchers are united in considering this project emotionally detached and derivative.
What is the reason for such a cold response? We do not hold the opinion that it is linked inextricably to the story itself. The reason lies in the way it is conveyed.
Let’s penetrate into the plot in order to make you believe that the story is actually very promising.
There five of them, the main characters, – Jesse, Mark, Pru, Danny, and Slade. Danny is reckoned to be a detective. The story starts unfolding when Jesse, the junior brother of Mark, disappears all of a sudden. Can it be a murder? Or is it a case of abduction? The four friends are set to get to the bottom and find Jesse if he is alive.
During the case investigation, horrible secrets come to be exposed. Out characters are taken to places where they are completely unwilling to go but they should.
Concerning the Future of the Series
The score on IMDb is average though but it cannot be taken as a ground for continuing the story. The only ground here can be the name of the incredibly renowned writer in order to improve the reputation of the story.
There is still some time for the developers to decide on the series future. Yet it is probable that cancellation will be announced. There is no waiting for The Five season 2 release date so far. We recommend you putting the search of info about this project on hold now following other British criminal dramas that are broadcasted with much success.
