Superstore is likely to be renewed. Of course it is. With almost all “rookie” shows being held until early 2021, the veteran shows premiering between now and the end of 2020 are almost all likely to be renewed.
In last week’s news, Filthy Rich & NEXT were both officially canceled by Fox. If you’d been reading the reaper’s posts, you’d know they never had a chance of renewal.
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.
