While we know the fates of a majority of shows from the 2019-20 season, there are still some we don't.

While, for example, CBS recently renewed a majority of its shows, adding four to the ones it's axed, and ABC added 13 more renewals to its previous pickups and canceled five, NBC has been a bit slower about revealing its series' fates and still has quite a few left up in the air.

Perfect Harmony

Network: NBC

Season status: Season 1 finale aired January 23

Are we worried? Yes

The NBC comedy starring Bradley Whitford about a small-town church choir ended its freshman season months ago. While NBC does have a few shows to decide the fates of, with less than stellar ratings, we’re not expecting this one to return.

Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector

Network: NBC

Season status: Season 1 finale aired March 13

Are we worried? Yes

NBC’s Friday night offering may have wrapped up one mystery for the titular character and the NYPD before ending its first season with a cliffhanger, but the longer it is without news, the less hopeful we are about seeing a resolution. Plus, according to Deadline, its chances aren’t looking good.

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled Manifest

Manifest

Network: NBC

Season status: Season 2 finale aired April 6

Are we worried? Slightly

If NBC had made decisions on more shows than it has, we’d be more concerned. But due to its delayed-viewing successes (in viewers and among adults 18-49), we think it’s more likely it will be renewed than it won’t be and fans will get to see what’s next for the returned passengers of Flight 828 and their loved ones — especially after the discovery of part of the plane.

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled Indebted

Indebted

Network: NBC

Season status: Season 1 finale aired April 16

Are we worried? Yes

The family comedy starring Fran Drescher also suffered in terms of ratings, and Deadline‘s report also suggests it’s more likely to be canceled than renewed.

NBC

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist

Network: NBC

Season status: Season 1 finale aired May 3

Are we worried? No

As we’ve pointed out, NBC has yet to announce the fates of several shows, and the first season of the musical dramedy was entertaining and a multi-platform hit. Chances are we’ll see what’s next for Jane Levy’s Zoey and her ability to hear people’s inner thoughts as “heart songs.” Showrunner Austin Winsberg pitched the second season to NBC and told TVLine, “The network was very happy with the creative direction [and] the show in general.”

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled For Life
ABC/Matthias Clamer

For Life

Network: ABC

Season status: Season 1 finale aired May 12

Are we worried? Slightly

The legal drama isn’t a ratings hit (but does well across multiple platforms). However, we shouldn’t rule it out because Deadline reports that ABC is a fan of the lead, Nicholas Pinnock, whose character is serving a life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit and is providing legal help to his fellow inmates, and sees “potential” in the drama.

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled Katy Keene

Katy Keene

Network: The CW

Season status: Season 1 finale aired May 14

Are we worried? No

The CW handed out renewals at the beginning of January, while this Riverdale spinoff premiered on February 6. With that connection and new fans likely discovering it on the just launched HBO Max, chances are that a decision will come soon.

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled The Baker and the Beauty

The Baker and the Beauty

Network: ABC

Season status: Season 1 finale airs June 1

Are we worried? Slightly

While its ratings (2.64 million tuned in for the premiere) haven’t been winning the night, its first season has yet to finish airing. Plus, showrunner Dean Georgaris is hopeful. “The fact that we’re still very much alive means a lot to all of us, and hopefully we’ll get the news sometime in the next couple weeks,” he told TV Insider Friday.

TV Shows 2020 Renewed Canceled Council of Dads

Council of Dads

Network: NBC

Season status: Currently airing its first season, Episode 5 aired May 28

Are we worried? No

Though the series originally premiered on March 24, its second episode didn’t air until April 30. Since NBC hasn’t pulled it from the schedule, we’re going to give it a couple more weeks before we worry about not hearing anything about a second season.
