Ranking the Likelihood of ‘Prodigal Son,’ ‘Manifest’ & More Canceled Shows Being Saved
If you’re not over the cancellations of some of your favorite shows and are hoping that at least a couple luck out like Lucifer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Last Man Standing have in the past, you’re not alone.
After all, the 2020-2021 season brought the end of series like All Rise, Manifest, Prodigal Son, and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, all of which we’re not quite ready to let go of just yet. But there are also others, like MacGyver (especially with Lucas Till’s new role, showrunner Monica Macer detailing quite a bit of Season 6’s plans to TVLine, and the fact CBS, which canceled it, owns it), Mom, NCIS: New Orleans, and Call Your Mother, where we know seeing anything else — other than perhaps some sort of NCIS crossover — is very much a long shot (though nothing is necessarily impossible).
With “Save” campaigns across the internet and some studio executives on record saying they’re searching for new homes for a few series, we take a look at the ones that may have a shot to come back in some way somewhere (from least to most likely).
