‘Grand Hotel’ Canceled After One Season at ABC

ABC has pulled the plug on “Grand Hotel” after a single season, Variety has confirmed.

Based on the original Spanish series and starring Demian Bichir, Eva Longoria and Roselyn Sanchez, “Grand Hotel” provided an upstairs/downstairs look at the scandals and secrets of both the Mendoza family and the staff that works for them.

The show was written Brian Tanen, who executive produced alongside Longoria and Ben Spector through UnbeliEVAble, as well as Ramon Campos and Teresa Fernandez-Valdes for ABC Studios.

It averaged a modest 0.50 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and around 2.7 million total viewers across its single season. The show struggled to make an impact alongside ABC’s summer roster stacked with unscripted content, coming in below competition series like “Holey Moley,” “Card Sharks” and “To Tell The Truth.”

Grand Hotel” also starred Denyse Tontz, Bryan Craig, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Lincoln Younes, Shalim Ortiz, Anne Winters, Chris Warren, Feliz Ramirez and Justina Adorno.

The show was largely well received by critics, with Variety‘s Caroline Framke writing that it “packs as much punch in as it possibly can.”

“Even when the characters feel flimsy — an inevitability with a show boasting such a long cast list — there’s enough zip in the story to keep ‘Grand Hotel’ moving along at a clip that should make it an easy, breezy summer watch,” Framke wrote.
