Other recent Renewals and Cancellations on NBC:



The broadcast upfront presentations for 2017 are near, and that means that it is time for our Final Predictions. The networks will announce whether their remaining shows will be renewed or cancelled around the end of the week. NBC will announce its Fall 2017 schedule at its upfront presentation that will take place on May 15th, starting at 10:30 AM ET. Follow us on Twitter for the latest!

Great News proves, once again, that premiering in Spring means trouble. Whereas the series’ pilot had pretty decent ratings, the second episode’s Adults 18-49 rating was bad, especially given the fact that the new series still had The Voice‘s lead-in. Great News will be downgraded to a Likely Cancellation, but don’t expect an official decision from NBC next week.

The Blacklist: Redemption is also in trouble. The show’s ratings are quite low and are not going to get this show another season. The only way the series might be saved is if a good deal can be struck in combination with the certain to be renewed mothership, The Blacklist.

More bad news comes in the form of Timeless. The series, which is likely to be cancelled, started off doing pretty good in the ratings, but they soon dropped. NBC did order a ‘full’ season of 16 episodes, showing that the show is quite expensive to make, money and timewise. With no renewal so far, Timeless is out of time by the same logic.

Blindspot is the show with some good news this week. The show’s Adults 18-49 ratings are a little low, but not shockingly bad. Since Blindspot is a very steady performer as the first primetime series on Wednesday nights, NBC will likely choose to renew the series. This means Blindspot will likely be renewed.
