This is not a drill!
ABC has opted not to renew The Whispers for a second season. The entire mystery wrapped around an unknown entity that played with children, coercing them into doing terrible things. It's name? Drill.
While The Whispers started out strong during it's run, premiering as the highest rated summer series since Rookie Blue in 2010, the ratings slipped steadily throughout its run, even with the help of delayed viewing numbers.
The big question (and summer promotion) #WhoisDrill was answered to some degree in the season one finale, not many more answers were forthcoming. Now it seems that's all you'll get.
