Predictions Week 10: The Rookie Is Likely To Be Renewed

Posted by


The Rookie is likely to be renewed, as is any third season show that’s not already guaranteed renewal. The prediction and reasoning was included in the Week 1 post if you’d like to read more.

In last week’s news, Black Lightning’s renewal was revealed to be a renanceling, and it will end after the 2020-21 season.

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.
