The network hasn't officially cancelled the show, but multiple outlets are reporting that no back episodes have been ordered, which almost certainly means there won't be a second season (although all 13 episodes initially ordered are expected to air).

Here's a more detailed explanation of the obstacles the show is facing:

I kinda like Pure Genius. But I would probably forget it ever existed if it got canceled. Its a neat premise for a show, and a great avenue for creative writing, but it's kinda pointless. I mean, the technology they present doesnt actually exist so... *shrug*
But I'll say its way better than all those Medical Shows about romance or helicopter crashes... Ouph.

Well I kinda was wondering why in the first place they created this show in the first place !! It didn't have anything new to offer in the first place,Yeah sure they tried pull a fast one by showing some so called "cutting edge" medical equipments,procedures and what not but the basic storyline or the premise was nothing to write home about !

Not one bit surprised nor will I ever miss this,Good Riddance !!

Really love this show, as a scientist it's so cool to see such creative ideas and something in the medical field other than doctor relationships and drama. Really hope it stays or gets picked up by a smaller network that will give it a better chance.

I like watching this show! Yes, practically everything they are showing is either fiction or at least not nearly as far along as they portray, but most technology today was fiction at one point or another. I like the idea of someone being inspired in someway. It's kind of like a mix between how I imagine the company Google works, and a top grade hospital...maybe the future of Google Labs? grins...sorry...couldn't help myself!

I watched two episodes and then thought "What's great about this show?" Couldn't think of anything, even the main characters didn't seem to have a connection so not watching it again.

I watched a couple episodes and didn't like any of the characters (except Divya from Royal Pains, lol) the genius is cliche, his mentor is holier than thou and everyone is so impressed with the idea they have cutting edge medicine, they still forget that so many don't have coverage still.

I do search every season for shows on network TV I like with few finds. I love this one and they are cancelling it. Our country needs to celebrate people who make ideas into inventions!!

I like this show it's futuristic, it's hopeful for us, it's lively, fun and familyish. Medical shows r interesting unless to soap operaish. With the bs and sex crap. I like this show.

While I like the show, it wouldn't surprise me if it gets cancelled - it had gotten old by episode 8.

I don't really understand the bad reviews this show is getting. I really enjoy watching this and feel like there is a decent avenue for it to progress. It would be of interest to see the unfolding of James's illness, how "W" and his wife and children deal with the struggle of being a long-distance family, as well as the potential to deal with many other hot-button topics facing the future of medicine: cloning, stem cell research, insurance affordability, and so much more. The actors have really started to grow on me especially as the viewers are given more insight into their background. I like that this show has some actual substance which seems sorely missing from far too many of today's shows. Personally, I really hope it gets renewed. I dislike seeing shows I like getting canceled while drivel gets kept.

I love this show. Sci-fi is often misunderstood. People like Jules Vern and HG Wells were thought of as odd or misunderstood, the same with any scientist that come up with new ideas. All inventions were fiction at the state of concept. Many of the inovations on the show are at least concept now but being researched. I love the characters on the show and the conflicts are interesting. Unfortunately, nowadays if it isn't full of ..... well, I won't go there.

The last few episodes have been really good. there are only 2 left to go and it seems like things are starting to mesh. I hope others see that and they continue to grow where the story line seems to be going.

I like the premise of the show, especially concidering the current state of the health system.
James Bell is the fictional Elon Musk of health system, who used him overflowing wealth to advance medician and how to monitor at risk patients. So he has to be a little weird, corky and with a little touch of asperger.
BUT some of the character ... ough ... seriously, Zoey and Angie are soooooo obnoxious. Zoey on her high and mighty white horse, acting as she knows everything better than anybody without knowing sh**. And Angie, Angie nosey and prejudging on incomplete information.

I still hope that the show will be renewed and the writers work a little more one some of the characters.

I only watch television as entertainment. I like the premise of the show after all the alien shows and space shows out how is it possible that there are those that think because it does not exist makes this a bad show, ludicrous. Have you seen any aliens, traveled to any stars lately bet not. Is the show getting a slow start of course most new genre shows do look at Star Trek if my memory s correct it was on TV 2 or 3 seasons and this was back in the stone age for TV. I give the show a chance to mature as well as the writers. Do not throw it away because it gathering its momentum. There are plenty of show that had a slow start and became something more than the first season. The last shows have been pretty good entertainment. Agree or disagree then let the network know you like the path of can they change something to make it batter entertainment as it is one of the only medical shows that is about something other than romance.

I really enjoyed the show... It was good entertainment. I feel the balance of Tech and Drama was good. I wasn't sure at first if I should start watching but when I did, it did not disappoint me.
I agree with John, the show should be given a chance to mature.

Rather enjoyed this show; bit far fetched that more or less every ailment or disease could be fixed by the end of the show, but it did have some very touching momens in it, plus Phillip Phillip was in it so it kept my wife quiet for 30 minutes...
DONT CANCEL THIS SHOW - I LIKE THE INDIAN DOCTOR LADY !!!!

I really like this show. It is nice to see medical professionals at work to save lives even if all the technology portrayed is not yet totally approved or operational. Nice to have a medical show that is less about romantic entanglements and more about healing people.
