Series info, storyline and cast

American Gothic is a US mystery drama television series that premiered on CBS on June 22, 2016. It is created by Connie Brinkerhoff, executive produced by Brinkerhoff, Matt Shakman, Todd Cohen, James Frey, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank and produced by Full Fathom Five, Hyla Regilla Productions, Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios.

The series chronicles the life of the Hawthones, a well-to-do Boston family in the concrete business, whose members have to face the consequences of a life-changing secret becoming revealed. The recently deceased patriarch of the family is suspected of having been a serial killer, and one of the relatives might have been an accomplice in his crimes. The main cast includes Juliet Rylance as Alison Hawthorne-Price, Antony Starr as Garrett Hawthorne, Justin Chatwin as Cam Hawthorne, Megan Ketch as Tessa Ross, Eliot Knight as Brady Ross, and others.

Viewership and prospects of renewal

Critical reception of the series is mixed to average, with a 51 out of 100 Metacritic score, 61% on Rotten Tomatoes and 6.4/10 on IMDb. The general consensus is that American Gothic is far from being compelling, but provides light character-driven summer entertainment with a traditional feel to it. There`s no shock value, and many viewers are actually grateful for that. American Gothic premiered to 3.43 million viewers, and is holding up fairly well, but whether or not CBS finds these numbers high enough to continue with the series is not clear at this point in the freshman season. Stay tuned and we will keep you informed of the series` fate.
