Basic info and cast
Scorpion is a new American action and crime drama TV series that centers on a computer genius and his team of equally smart misfits as they protect the US against various high-tech security threats. Developed by Nick Santora, and produced by CBS Television Studios, season 1 of the series premiered on CBS on September 22, 2014.
Walter O’Brien (played by Elyes Gabel) is genius with 197 IQ who is recruited by a federal agent named Cabe Gallo (played by Robert Patrick) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to an elite group called Scorpion. O’Brien and his team members are considered the most intelligent people in the world and are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats to global security. The series also stars O’Brien’s friends Sylvester Dodd (played by Ari Stidham), aka “human calculator”, mechanical prodigy Happy Quinn (played by Jadyn Wong), world class shrink Toby Curtis (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Paige Dineen (played by Katharine McPhee), a former waitress whose intuitive interaction with people translates the real world to the team.
Season 2 premiered on September 21, 2015 and is already boasting an impressive average of nearly 11 million viewers per episode. With ratings this high, viewers will likely see Scorpion return for season 3 sometime next year. Fans will have to stay tuned to find out the details once more information becomes available from the network. Thus far CBS has made no statements regarding a potential renewal.
Season 2 recap
A 24-part sophomore season of the CBS network’s highly-rated TV show Scorpion bowed out in the US on Monday, April 25, 2016. With an early renewal that was announced in March the producing team didn’t worry much about the ratings, but the second chapter of the hit series has still managed to impress with an average viewership of almost 10 million fans per episode. To the delight of the fans, the finale turned out to be very romantic. Not everything went according to plan, and Toby’s heart got broken when his proposal to Happy went terribly wrong, but viewers were finally relieved to hear Walter confessing to Toby his love for Paige and finally doing something about it. Whether his plan works out, we will have to wait until new episodes hit the small screen, as the creative team has wrapped up the current season, as expected, with a cliffhanger.
