As NBC’s The Irrational Goes On Break, The Creator Talks Ending Season 1 ‘The Way We Want To’


The Irrational arrived in the 2023 TV schedule at a time when the WGA writers strike and SAG-AFTRA actors strike meant a shortage of fall TV options. The new drama brought Jesse L. Martin back to NBC after his Law & Order days, and it quickly set itself apart from other procedurals by unraveling an explosive mystery from Alec’s past while he used his behavioral science expertise to close cases in the present. Unfortunately, the show is already going on a break after just seven episodes, so I’m ready to pin my hopes on what creator/showrunner/executive producer Arika Lisanne Mittman told CinemaBlend about ending Season 1!

First things first! The good news is that The Irrational isn’t absent from its Monday night time slot because NBC was disappointed with the performance or the ratings tanked. Instead, TVLine reports that the new drama simply ran out of new episodes that were produced before the strikes began. There is reportedly no date set yet for when production can begin again, but the ends of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes at least mean that those obstacles are no longer in the way.
