After ABC cancelled their new series Rebel with just one season in the books, the show could be looking to make a comeback on IMDb TV, according to Deadline.

  • The first season of ABC Signature’s Rebel is currently streaming on IMDb TV, the free streaming service owned by Amazon.
  • The agreement between the studio and the streamer reportedly include an option for a second-season order based on how Season 1 performs on the platform.
  • The cast is also reportedly still under options, which makes a second season a possibility.
  • This is actually one of two recently cancelled ABC series in this situation with IMDb TV. The first two seasons of For Life are also streaming on IMBd with the trial run serving as a test for a potential third season.
  • The cancellation of Rebel came just five episodes into its first season.
  • At the time of the cancellation, series star Katey Segal took to her Instagram to share this message:
    • “The abrupt announcement that there would be no season 2 based on the response from our airings came a shock and a heartbreak. Things take time to catch on. Rebel tells the story of a woman who speaks up for what is right, the show has heart and purpose, funny and tears, and we, the cast, are all scratching our heads at the reversal of support from ABC.”

About Rebel:

She’s a funny, messy, brilliant and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves.
