Madam Secretary season 7

Have you already said goodbye to the Madam Secretary series or are you still looking for the release date for season 7?

In recent years, a lot of political dramas have come out, because the viewer has always been interested to look at least with one eye what is happening in the world of high-ranking people. Of course, we will not see the whole truth, but there is still a certain amount of truth in such series, therefore it is interesting to watch them.

Storyline of Madam Secretary TV-series:

Elizabeth McCord worked at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the past, but then quit the job and decided to spend more time with her family and children. Since the main character is a brilliant analyst, she does not have to sit at home for a long time, and soon the woman is again called into big politics, and she cannot refuse the proposed prospects.

The new president calls Elizabeth to the post of secretary of state, and she, in turn, surrounds herself with a team of reliable people to solve those tasks that others cannot handle. However, she did not even suspect how difficult it would be to balance between such a responsible work and family.

An interesting storyline and excellent cast allowed the series Madam Secretary to stay on the CBS channel for a long 6 years and now fans are looking for information about the 7th season of this political drama. What about the release date in 2020? Is the series renewed or cancelled? Wait a little bit…

Interesting facts about the TV-drama Madam Secretary:

* The creator is Barbara Hall, who previously worked on the following projects: Homeland, Joan of Arcadia and ER.
* The first season was ordered on May 9, 2014 by CBS.
* The first season premiered on September 21, 2014.
* The duration of one episode ranges from 42 to 46 minutes.
* The series was produced by CBS Television Studios and Revelation Entertainment.
* The musical accompaniment was created by Transcenders, who wrote music for such popular projects as: Gossip Girl, The Real O’Neals, Black-ish, Joey and others.

The main cast of Madam Secretary TV-series:

* Elizabeth “Bess” Adams McCord is the main character, who used to be a CIA analyst, and now holds a fairly high state post – the United States Secretary of State. The role was approved by Thea Leoni (TV-series: “The Naked Truth”, “Flying Blind”, and movies: Deep Impact (1998), The Family Man (2000), Jurassic Park III (2001), Spanglish (2004).

* Henry McCord is the husband of Elizabeth, who works as a professor of theology at Georgetown. He used to be an NSA spy. He was played by Tim Daly (sitcom “Wings”, Pete Wilder on “Private Practice”).

* Nadine Tolliver is the chief of staff of the Secretary of State. The role went to Bebe Neuwirth (TV sitcom “Cheers” and its spin-off “Frasier”, Morticia Addams in The Addams Family (2010).

* Russell Jackson is the head of the presidential administration. It was played by Zeljko Ivanek (Blake Sterling on the NBC series “The Event”, and Emile “The Hunter” Danko on Heroesa).

* Daisy Grant is the spokeswoman for the main character. The role is assigned to Patina Miller (Commander Paylor in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay films, Leading Player in the 2013 revival of Pippin).

What about Madam Secretary season 7 premiere or developing a spin-off?

So do viewers need to wait for the release date of Madam Secretary season 7, or is it better to look for a new political drama in 2020? Unfortunately, there is official confirmation from the CBS channel that there will not be a seventh season start or even a spin-off in 2020. The sixth season was planned for the final, which was announced back in the summer of 2019. The requests of the fans were not heard by the creators, so new episodes of the series are now not worth the wait. We hope that in the future we will have a spin-off or prequel…

Why did the creators decide to complete the series? What is the reason?

Now there are several versions of why there will be no 7th season. The main reason experts from The Hollywood Reporter see that the ratings aren’t super amazing and the CBS channel leaders are very unhappy with this. This theory is also confirmed by the fact that financing for the final season was allocated for only 10 episodes.

Well, many actors of Madam Secretary series already said goodbye to the project and thanked the fans for their support. Is it difficult to say goodbye to your favorite series? Share your impressions and emotions in the comments!

  1. Lorry

    Best series ever!!! I like it. need season 7 and more…

  2. Chris

    That’s terrible. A show where we can see honest, good, law-abiding people in the United States government, and now they take it away during a big election year. This has a peculiar feeling about it.

    • Lily Arjomand

      I totally agree that there absolutely should be a Season 7. this is the best show on TV.

  3. Alice Nolan

    Must have Season 7!!!!!

  4. Jack

    Great series with excellent stories. Need a Season 7 please.

  5. Alice Jaye

    Think it followed along with today’s politics. Perhaps we Trump supporters should rally around our President and shout He’s Our President!

    • Ann Bardell

      I just watched season 6 episode 9 and Alice Jayes reaction was mine also! We should hold a massive rally in front of the Trump Whitehouse! Chanting “Trump is our President!!!”

      Very disappointed there is no 7 th season. But the final two episodes were The Best of all!!! Well done! We will miss the McCords and all the other actors! Grew to love them!

  6. Betsy

    One of the best shows on tv. All the actors are also phenomenal. What is wrong with CBS, put it back on, and spend more money promoting the show. Love the likeness and truths of politics too!

  7. Allie

    The final episode of Madame Secretary was the best finale ever produced.
    I do however protest the cancellation of this smart, witty drama. So sad, please Netflix, Prime or a cable station pick up this great show!

  8. Temple Weste

    Please have AT LEAST a season 7! This is one of the best shows ever. Superb cast, excellent writing, so tuned in, so exemplary!

  9. Hardy Staub

    That is sad news. It stayed pretty close to what is happening and perhaps what should be happening in Washington. Please continue and bring out season 7 or have another company continue. Great cast!

  10. Mindy Miranda

    REMEMBER GINA DAVIS IN “COMMANDER IN CHIEF”, A HIGHLY RATED SHOW? CANCELLED DUE TO POLITICAL PRESSURE, DIDN’T WANT TO SHOW A WOMAN PRESIDENT DURING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEARS WITH HILLARY CLINTON IN THE PICTURE. ONE SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE OTHER, YET HERE WE ARE AGAIN. MY HUSBAND THOUGHT HE’D HEARD A SEASON 7 WAS A GO, BUT WITHOUT THE KIDDOS. IT WAS WELL WRITTEN, AND I’M CAPABLE OF KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FICTION AND REALITY. THE SHOW DID A GREAT JOB WITH THE STORY ABOUT CHILDREN BEING SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS AND SUPPOSE THAT WAS TOO CLOSE FOR THE CURRENT POWERS THAT BE. I’LL MISS THE SHOW. HOPEFULLY, ANIMAL PLANET WON’T GO ANYWHERE, OR THERE WILL BE LITTLE TO WATCH.

  11. Dawn

    Madam Secretary is the best show on TV, needs a season 7! Very disappointed in cancellation, what were they thinking!

    • Donna K

      So looking forward to next series in 2020 – PLEASE !

  12. Mary Barrett

    Seriously, it’s over? So disappointed. So much crap on TV and this doesn’t come back? Seriously?

  13. Rebecca Zingle

    Someone said that if Shakespeare had been a writer today he would not get published, because he doesn’t cater to the largest audience. So is it with Madame Secretary. But how is the largest audience ever going to get more informed if all TV shows write to their existing level of understanding and comfort? Media is capable of enriching, empowering and evolving individuals as well as our social consciousness. Please don’t contribute to the anti-intellectual dumbing down of the population. Please let us have some programs that raise and hold us to a higher standard.

  14. Kay R.

    This is a clear and devastating loss. What an engaging, provocative, well-acted and well-written show. Seeing a woman handle the responsibilities of the presidency is such a good role model for young people…well, for anyone.

    This show provides an intriguing glimpse into possible creative approaches to handling difficult situations, as well as the immeasurable value of both strategy and diplomacy. I wish our government folks had the cleverness, skill, creativity, fortitude and cajones of the characters in Madam Secretary.

    I dearly hope for some sort of a re-boot or or spin-off. Madam President sort of has nice ring to it, don’t you think?

  15. Debby Deneen

    What a travesty that this show is being cancelled. It is outstanding in its content, the cast and the message. The powers to be in Washington could learn a lot from watching it PLEASE DON’T CANCEL IT.

  16. Wanda Garcia

    i will miss this show. i’m sad that it was not renewed.

  17. Joan Fleming

    Madame Secretary is a class series. It depicts a woman president and a strong competent woman. Episodes have been well written and often cover takes on very current issues domestically and internationally. Elizabeth doses a far superior job than the current administration. They show how things could be handled rather than bungled. We haven’t even given her a full year in office. I personally think that CBS should do more careful programming analysis and scheduling. This shoe is up against some PBS programming that likely appeals to the same audience. I record it and watch at my leisure.
    Please continue this series.

    • Donna K

      So enjoy this show – Please reconsider and bring it back !

  18. Brenda

    The reason why ratings were down was becuz CBS can’t get their crap together on the time you never knew what time it was going to start and it’s the same way with NCIS: LA you never know what time it’s going to start either unless you want to watch 60 minutes in which I have absolutely no desire to do and becuz it runs so late it puts the other shows to late if it wasn’t for the ncis shows and Macgyver Hawaii 5 0 I wouldn’t even watch CBS I really liked Madam Secretary it was one of my favorite shows I’ll miss it

  19. Marilyn Doud

    Madam Secretary was my favorite show – did a great job of addressing current issues, and showed a number of very capable women working effectively in government. I hope this cancellation was not politically motivated – if the network won’t bring it back, I hope Netflix will pick it up, as they did with “Designated Survivor” (but not cancel it after one season, as they did with DS.

  20. Sandra Berlinger

    I will miss Madam Secretary. I was told she was supposed to be like Hillary. If only Hillary had been really like her, she might have ben elected.

  21. Donna K

    So looking forward to 2020 series – Please bring it back !

  22. Suzanne A.

    I would so love to see another season with Elizabeth as President, even if you have to change the title to Madam President. Here is a strong faire woman who is a role model to many. What other do girls have except certain anchor women and a few others who comment. Really, on TV these days it is mostly the most twisted, weird who are constantly portrayed. It was refreshing to see a happy sain family working together through difficult and unusual situations, as well a a show not afraid to tackle political issues that are mainstream.
    It would be great to see Elizabeth and Henry on their travel across the country.
    I sure wish there was one or several more seasons…
    At least we got to see most of the characters at the end together, and it was nice to see Tim Daly in a cameo with his sister actress. I will sure miss all of these great actors, the well thought out plots and their fresh take on current events. Thank you for six wonderful seasons… still hopeful.

  23. Amanda Lohe

    My favorite show – so sad

  24. Cindy

    Unbelievable. We were faithful followers and feel “left hanging.” So many storylines that were not finished. Why do the really good TV shows get cancelled while the smarmy stuff stays on? Extremely disappointing.

  25. Deb Wood

    Loved the show! Really miss the characters and the storyline. Bring it back!!

  26. Kim

    *CRIES* I need this series to go on. It’s SO GOOD

  27. NORMA

    not only do i miss madame secretary….now madame president…but i found the cast of characters in both her political and home families very appealing. the series set a great example…and it’s unfortunate that the powers in charge of who americans get to watch take such a superb presidential character and family woman off the scene. it’s important for young women to see the kinds of sacrifices and dilemmas facing women as they move up the ladder in politics, economics, etc. to take the first major female character off the screen is unfortunate for men too so they can see the kinds of roles they will have to play to support the women in their lives moving up societies ladder and it’s impact on the families. it’s a travesty that this program was removed.

  28. Lolly

    I am so disappointed to read that Madam Secretary will not be back. This was a quality show!! Please reconsider!!

  29. Diane Edwards

    This cancellation is telling of the whole Trump Administration and their corruption. This show was so honest and so close to what is actually happening that I am sure they made this cancellation happen. it showed a brilliant batch of people actually using finesse and global understanding and of course was diametrically opposed to the craziness and corruption that exist in the White House and congress today.

  30. R.A.B

    Well, doesn’t that beat all. You follow the series from day 1, looking forward to the 10:00 pm TV slot to get your Madame Secretary (President) Sunday night rush. And then they drop it. So disappointing! Sorry, NCIS New Orleans just doesn’t cut it as a replacement. Just went to ABC to watch The Rookie. Bye. CBS

  31. Christina

    I loved this show!!! Come on Netflix pick it up u akready show it anyways!!! Please!!!! I’ll pay extra Netflix!!! Okay

  32. Larry Hastings

    The people who decided to end Madam Secretary are not VERYBRITE PEOPLE, AND GREEDY.They had a Great Show on their hands and PROBABLY Bowed down to Political Pressure to End a Great Series..A REAL BUNCH OF FOOLS..
    Hope you ALL STARVE AND LEFT Pennyless…..BIG MISTAKE ,YOU’LL SEE…

  33. John

    It seems the network needs to do more homework. The series as a whole, was well done. Please give us back this show.

  34. Leslie G, PA-C

    So sad to see a cogent, intelligent and relevant show cancelled in the setting of so many poorly done, trite and irrelevant shows on to dull the mind. They got really close to being tightly relevant on the racism and #healthequity issues, that we have a suggestion on one that would be COMPLETELY Transformational! Our campaign re: Racism as a threat to public health, something completely relevant and life-saving! Join us and call for intelligent programming!

  35. Daniel

    My life is empty knowing I do not have this show to look forward to anymore 🙁

  36. MARGARET BUTERA

    Loved this series. Good family show. Hope they bring it back. Thank you for six great seasons.

  37. Susanne

    PLEASE continue Madam Secretary l?? Elizabeth and Henry have the best relationship that brings an innocent shining spirit and are a delight of fresh air!!! Please? It’s the only show I watch on Netflix. I don’t have cable so I watch it using my Netflix account. Please don’t cancel it please
