The Simpsons is likely to be renewed. Of course it is. There’s probably already another full season in the can. But with almost no new scripted shows yet this Fall, I’ve got to predict something!

Recapping last week’s news:

Family Guy & Bob’s Burger’s were renewed for two more seasons.

It was revealed that Supergirl’s renewal for the ’20-’21 season was instead a renanceling (renewal for a final season), and it will be ending this season.

The reaper’s running prediction tally this season: 

  • Right:
  • Wrong:

Already renewed: Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago, PD, Law & Order: SVU, New Amsterdam and This is Us were renewed for the 2021-22 season before their 2020-21 seasons began.

*Renanceled (renewed for a final season): Supergirl was renanceled before its season began and will end in the 2020-21 season.
