This will be the last time fans are about to see Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming) and Det. Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) in "Grey Matter." CBS has canceled the show after two seasons, removing any hopes for Season 3.
The cast and crew are now doing their best to give the show a proper sendoff. As the series has been known for solving a lot of mysteries, Instinct Season 2 Episode 11 is expected to tie all its loose ends and answer all the lingering questions fans have.
In "Grey Matter," a gruesome discovery in the city will lead Dylan and Lizzie to investigate a young man's murder. Andy (Daniel Ings), on the other hand, will rescue one of Dylan's students from a legal bind. Dylan and Julian's (Naveen Andrews) old friend will make an appearance, while Lizzie decides to embrace adventure.
According to CarterMatt, Instinct Season 2 Episode 11 will feature a hard case that will challenge Dylan and Lizzie. However, this will not only be the problem they have.
There will be some major twists that will be happening at the end of the series. Although the show is already canceled, Episode 11 may change their future for a possible Instinct Season 3. So, will there be a renewal?
The show's creator, Michael Rauch, announced the sad news on Twitter. "I'm very sad to relay the news that @instinctcbs won't be renewed for a 3rd season," he said. "We will double up this Sunday and our season/series finale will be Aug 25."
Rauch gave his heartfelt gratitude to Cumming and Novakovic for portraying their roles in Instinct. He said the two lead stars had made Dylan and Lizzie "more everything" that he could have ever hoped.
The show is based on James Patterson's Murder Games. It starred Cumming as Dylan, an NYPD consultant. He uses his ability as a former CIA operative-author-professor whose expertise is on abnormal psychology to solve crimes.
According to Vulture, Dylan is the first openly gay lead on a network drama. The publication's television critic, Matt Zoller Seitz, called the series the "most frustrating show on broadcast television this summer" because of its intent to create a weird but enjoyable, original series than what the circumstances allow. So, fans have to wait and see what will happen from here when Instinct Season 2 Episode 11 hits the small screens on Sunday, Aug. 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
