Predictions Week 6: The Conners Is Likely To Be Renewed

Posted by


The Conners is likely to be renewed. Of course it is, but with so few “regular” shows premiered all the predictions are obvious!

In last week’s news, blackish was given a 6 episode “back order” raising its season total to 21 episodes. Season 7 is typically when cast contracts are renegotiated (often just before or just after), which is sometimes a cancellation catalyst. This could be nothing, or it could be “let’s generate another half dozen episodes before calling it quits”.

Why no predictions for Fox’s LA’s Finest, Filthy Rich, & NEXT; CBS’s Star Trek Discovery, Manhunt:Deadly Games, & One Day At A Time; CW’s Pandora, The Outpost, Devils, Coroner, & Swamp Thing; and NBC’s Transplant?

All of those shows were either no hope “mid-season” shows from the 2019-20 season delayed into Fall 2020, or shows that had aired “elsewhere” (outside the US, on cable, or on SVOD) and were bought/corporate transferred for Fall 2020 fill in purposes only. None of them have any in-season futures on US broadcast networks, so predictions for them are moot.


TV Grim Reaper’s predictions are for scripted broadcast primetime show renewals for the 2021-22 season or cancellations by the end of the 2020-21 season.
