JJ Abrams’ Alcatraz has been cancelled by Fox in response to its middling ratings, while the Kiefer Sutherland-fronted Touch has been confirmed for Season Two in spite of a similar decline.

Alcatraz co-creator Steven Lillien responded, “They said no one could escape from Alcatraz but apparently Fox just did. Thanks to our amazing cast, crew and fans! We had a blast.

“If Nielsen could see my inbox, they would know their system is flawed. Thank you Alcatraz fans for your incredibly kind words!”
