Grand Hotel Canceled at ABC

Grand Hotel is checking out of ABC's schedule for good. 

The soapy drama has been canceled after one season. 

Based on the Spanish TV series Gran Hotel, the series took viewers into the lavish world of the Riviera Grand Hotel, a family-owned establishment in Miami Beach. 

Toasting to the Success of Grand Hotel

It followed Santiago Mendoza, his glamorous second wife, Gigi, and their adult children, as well as the Riviera's staff for a season of mysteries, backstabbing, and everything in between. 

The cast included Demián Bichir, Roselyn Sanchez, Denyse Tontz, Bryan Craig, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Lincoln Younes, Shalim Ortiz, Anne Winters, Chris Warren, Feliz Ramirez, and Justina Adorno. 

Alicia Mendoza - Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 1

The series launched in June to tepid reviews and okay ratings, but it struggled to keep a decent chunk of the lead-in from The Bachelorette.

When you have one of the biggest shows of the season as your lead-in, you're expected to perform well.

The ratings dipped throughout the first and only season. After starting with 3.7 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, the series went out with a paltry 2.2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating. 

Despite being hailed as one of the highest-rated new scripted series of the summer, the ratings were simply not there to keep the show around.

Additionally, it's not like there were many new scripted dramas on the broadcast networks this summer. 

Alarm bells started ringing for Grand Hotel fans earlier this year when ABC President Karey Burke admitted that the low ratings were a cause for concern.

ABC has yet to renew or cancel Reef Break, but given it rated lower than Grand Hotel, it will likely get the chop.

Grand Hotel Season 1 concluded with multiple cliffhangers that will never be resolved unless the series miraculously comes back from the dead.
