What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network in the United States, Dead Pixels stars Alexa Davies, Will Merrick, Sargon Yelda, Charlotte Ritchie, David Mumeni, and Noush Skaugen. It revolves around a trio of friends and their passion for playing an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). The show follows gamers Megan “Meg” Jeffries (Davies), Nicholas “Nicky” Kettle (Merrick), and Usman (Yelda) who are obsessed with the online fantasy game “Kingdom Scrolls.” Meg would happily cut a date short to go home and defend Castle Blackfinger. Nicky thinks the miscasting of Vince Vaughn as Tanadaal in the “Kingdom Scrolls” movie is an international outrage. And Usman has made a plywood lid for his child’s playpen — so he can play the game in peace. As the show begins, Meg meets a new guy named Russell (Mumeni). The series is split equally between the real-world characters’ tragicomic lives and their computer-animated misadventures in the “Kingdom Scrolls” game. In season two, our gaming fanatics are thrilled by the arrival of the Kingdom Scrolls expansion pack. However, their excitement is quashed when they discover that the game they love so much has been commercialized and overrun by a younger generation of players.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Dead Pixels averages a 0.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 149,000 viewers in the live same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season one, that’s down by 72% in the demo and down by 60% in viewership in the live same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. Though other economic factors are involved, the higher-rated shows usually get renewed and the lower-rated ones get cancelled. Find out how Dead Pixels stacks up against other CW TV shows.

As of July 28, 2021, Dead Pixels has not been cancelled or renewed for a third season. Stay tuned for further updates.
Will The CW cancel or renew Dead Pixels for season three? The series originates on the E4 channel in the UK so it likely doesn’t cost The CW much to air. If it’s renewed for a third year overseas, I think The CW will air it. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Dead Pixels cancellation or renewal news.
