Bravo to re-air CBS drama 'Swingtown'

Swingtown_lSwingtown is jumping into bed with a new partner: Bravo. The network just acquired the exclusive cable rights to CBS’ spouse-sharing, ’70s-set drama, and plans to re-air it sometime this fall. (The edgy, ratings-challenged show, which finished its 13-episode run a few weeks ago, has a slim chance for renewal on CBS.) Although the move would seem to open the door for Tom, Trina, and the rest of the bell-bottomed gang to make another summer of love — and on cable, where many felt that the series belonged in the first place — Bravo says that it has no plans to order additional seasons of Swingtown. Might supergroovy ratings this fall change anyone’s mind? Fans can only hope.

    I love your behaviour…
    I love your
    behaviour, the light
    of a blackbird
    and a luminous
    farm; I listen
    to you when
    a care disappears
    and then, in the
    sound of a new
    day, a magical
    dreamland invites
    me to cry….

    I hope Swingtown comes back with new episodes. Kudos to Bravo for giving the show another chance. FX would have been a great home for it as well.

    Thank You BRAVO for stepping up where CBS should have!!! I can’t wait to watch SWINGTOWN again. Hopefully a Season 2 will follow in the spring!!

  • Julie

    This is fantastic news! For Swingtown being a low-rated drama, it sure is getting a lot of attention even after its ended. There’s still a lot of positive buzz around the show, and CBS still hasn’t cancelled it, and now Bravo picks up rights to re-air the first eason. Hopefully, with high ratings, they’ll be encouraged to order a second season!
    And notice that Flashpoint is getting no attention what so ever, even though it’s already been picked up for a second season.

    For those with streaming netflix, the entire first season is available there, and without commercial interruption. If I’m going to watch it, that’ll be the way…
