Kevin (Probably) Saves The World is likely to be canceled.

When Kevin received an order for only 3 more episodes last week, Kevin’s chances for renewal went from low to almost none. That short order is what the reaper calls “Extend And Pretend”. It extends a show until the network wants to premiere its replacement, and pretends the show still has life for the gullible.

The Mayor didn’t even get that far, with only 3 scripts ordered, that are likely to not be made into episodes. It’s certain to be canceled now.

New this season: Since in-house productions received far more than the typical historical advantage in Spring 2017 renewal decisions, the production company(ies) have been added after each show’s name in the table above for reference.

  • Right: Ten Days In The Valley, Me Myself & I, The Orville, Valor, The Brave, The Good Place
