Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
Although the series boasts a high score of 7.9 out of 10 on IMDb and 79% on Rotten Tomatoes, its viewership has been steadily falling from the time it first aired. Whether because of this, or because the writers don’t believe there are any more stories to write about, the network has decided not to continue with the show. With that, the current third season will be the last for the show and fans will not be seeing Bluestone 42 series 4.
