With finales coming in the next few weeks for the 2020-2021 season and renewals starting to be announced, we understand if you’re worried about your favorite shows’ futures. But for some, you probably don’t need to be.

While NBC has already renewed several dramas (for multiple seasons), The CW already announced plans to bring back a majority of its lineup, and CBS is rolling out its plans in batches, there are still quite a few shows whose fates haven’t been revealed but are most probably coming back. For example, Fox hasn’t said anything about 9-1-1 or the rest of its Monday or Tuesday night dramas, and it would be shocking if ABC says goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy or its spinoff.

Scroll down as we predict which shows are most likely coming back for 2021-2022.

9-1-1 & 9-1-1: Lone Star (Fox)

We highly doubt that Fox is going to want to say goodbye to its first responder-filled Monday nights, especially after the first official crossover, even though the renewals came early on in April in 2020. (Lone Star had already aired its entire first season at that point.)

Grey's Anatomy & Station 19 (ABC)

The only way Grey’s will be ending this season is if Ellen Pompeo doesn’t sign a new contract (which is possible). But even if that does happen, we doubt that ABC would also say goodbye to the firefighter spinoff, so it’s extremely likely that at the very least, Station 19 will be renewed.

Law & Order: Organized Crime (NBC)

Considering that the rest of Dick Wolf’s NBC shows have been renewed — for multiple seasons, last year — and the creator has already detailed his plans for Season 2, the announcement is inevitable.

Prodigal Son (Fox)

The Fox thriller was renewed slightly later than other shows last year, at the end of May. Something tells us that might be the case again in 2021. But with this cast and all the twists and turns, we have faith it’ll be back.

The Resident (Fox)

The Resident‘s renewal didn’t come until May last year, so there’s no need to worry about its future just yet. And with an established cast and intriguing personal, professional, and patient storylines, its future looks bright.

It may be the longest-running CBS show to not receive a renewal just yet, but the forecast looks good. After all, the series wasn’t renewed last year until just before the finale. Plus, series star Max Thieriot tells TV Insider he is “optimistic” and “hopeful.”
