Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist has been picked up for a second season. It will return midseason along with Ellen's Game of Games and Good Girls.
A new season of A.P. Bio will air on Peacock.
All of the new shows have been pushed back to midseason except the Law & Order spinoff featuring the return of Christopher Meloni.
The following shows have been canceled:
Bluff City Law
The Good Place
Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector
Will & Grace
Blacklist keeps hanging on. I’m excited about the Meloni show, to see the actor back in a drama, if it lasts.
The Blacklist landed in the middle of the ratings pack on NBC this year. However, it only lost about 3% of its 18-49 audience compared to last year (and it actually gained 6% total viewers), which is really good for an older show. Compare that to Manifest, which got slightly higher ratings (average 0.68 compared to 0.55) but dropped a whopping 45% from its first season. That's why The Blacklist was a sure thing for renewal (it received an early pickup in February), while Manifest was a last minute decision this week.
Blacklist seems old and tired, and a little far fetched. But I understand ratings.
It looks like there are three episodes of Blindspot left. Two are scheduled to air this week, and then the series finale will be on July 16.
