The main cast includes Zach Cregger, Asif Ali, Rhys Darby, Brooke Dillman, Ginger Gonzago, Will Greenberg, Jessica Lowe, Ally Maki, Brian Sacca and James Scott.
Ratings and renewal expectation
The series premiered to 1.64 million viewers and, while some of the debut audience was lost, the viewership remains high, close to 1.3 million viewers per episode on the average. The 6.8/10 IMDb score denotes mostly positive reviews, although Rotten Tomatoes only grant the show a 50% rating, and Metactritic follows suit with 56/100. The audience response is more positive than that of the critical community, viewers seem to enjoy the silliness, the misfit characters, and even the usual genre tropes aren`t tiresome in this refreshing take on survival. TBS has not made a decision on the fate of Wrecked yet, so please stay with us for the most up-to-date information.
