There’s a lot up in the air about the future of television shows right now, and while some series have been renewed, there are still plenty that haven’t yet.

But there are also a few shows that could go either way. To make life easier, we’ve compiled the bubble shows with producers that are optimistic about more seasons, including Prodigal Son and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, below.
