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.
