Down to the wire: What bubble shows will get last minute renewals?

Cable TV


The Donald Glover series will likely continue as long as he wants to do it. Technically there has been no renewal news, but there’s no doubt FX would like to continue their collaboration with Glover. It’s one of their most critically acclaimed dramas, and Atlanta has garnered a lot of support from viewers. When the third season airs is completely up in the air though, with the sophomore run taking a big break after the first season’s finale. It’s definitely one of the safest bubble shows on this list.

Renewal Chances: 10/10

The Terror

When it debuted on a Sunday, The Terror did very well for AMC but the show has fallen quite a bit in the ratings since the shift to Monday. It will be interesting to see if the network makes a decision on this show by the upfronts. They still have Humans and Dietland to air later this year and either one of those could steal a renewal from the horror show. AMC doesn’t necessarily renew things based on ratings so some of their bubble shows rely entirely on critical appeal. At least The Terror has that going for it.

Renewal Chances: 5/10


FX recently added an extra episode onto this season of Legion which confirms the show is fully supported by the network. While the series doesn’t do well in the ratings, it’s been heralded as one of the most ambitious shows of all time. The Marvel adaptation is completely different and has some of the most jaw-dropping scenes of all time. Chances are high for it to return for another run, especially because Aubrey Plaza has blown up recently. Her performance on Legion is finally getting recognized and there might be some new fans tuning in for a season three.

Renewal Chances: 8/10
