The success of a TV series is usually determined by the ratings it gets. The more expensive a show is to produce, the better it has numbers that justify its cost, otherwise the channel will find another show that will justify the expense.

Every year, channels and streaming platforms receive an infinite number of series and, for each of these new series that is retained, this means that one of the series from the previous year will inevitably be left out. Here is a list of series, some longer than others, whose future is not as certain as before.Advertisement

1. The Crown

Platform: Netflix
Status: Renewed through the sixth and final season

Eight years after the success of his 2006 film “The Queen,” Peter Morgan has struck a deal with Netflix to turn “The Audience,” his 2013 stage play, into a sixty-episode television series, called “The Crown” and supported by Sony Pictures Productions and Left Bank Pictures.

In 2020, after the show's fourth season aired, Peter Morgan let it be known that he intended to end the show a season early.

2. NCIS: Los Angeles

Platform: CBS
Situation: Season 14 could be released (or not)

Historically, spin-offs have always had a reputation for not lasting very long. However, after a dozen seasons, we can say that NCIS: Los Angeles has exceeded expectations. Given that each episode costs just over $2.5 million to make, with around $350,000 each going to LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell, it's understandable that the show's future hinges on its viewership. .Advertisement

Currently in its 13th season, it is not yet known if NCIS: Los Angeles will be picked up for a 14th next year, however, given the high ratings the series has received over the years, it There's good reason to believe Agents Callen, Blye, and Hanna still have a bright future ahead of them.

3. The Resident

Platform: Fox
Situation: We don't know yet if season 6 will be released

In 2016, Showtime began developing a dark drama, with Fuqua Films, about the medical world, but after a year in development the project was scrapped by the channel and picked up by Fox.

4. The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Platform: Bravo
Location: Renewed for the 14th season

In the early 2000s, the number of reality TV shows being produced increased dramatically, as it turns out that many people enjoy escaping reality by watching other people's lives on TV.

After 13 seasons of mediocre ratings, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" has been renewed for a 14th season. However, if it doesn't start churning out better numbers soon, True Entertainment will most likely find a better way to spend the nearly $1 million it costs to produce each episode.

5. Big Brother

Platform: CBS
Status: Pending

Launched in the summer of 2000, "Big Brother" has had a longer lifespan than almost any other reality show in television history, which some say is due, at least in part. , at the relatively low cost of producing the show.

“The Blacklist” got off to such a strong start that in 2014, Netflix began paying a $2 million per episode fee in order to air it on the streaming network. Years have passed and so has interest in the series, as the average weekly viewership has declined every year since the series debuted. Season 9 is underway, but “The Blacklist” is unlikely to see double-digit ratings.

Platform: NBC
Situation: Season 2 is not for tomorrow

After its first and only season ended, “Katy Keene” became the first CW series to premiere exclusively on HBO Max.

Channel executives recognized early on that continuing to air "Next" the following year would be a mistake, and before the third episode of the series aired, production showrunners had already learned that the end of the first season would also be the end of the series and they would have to start looking for their "next" job.

Platform: FX on Hulu
Situation: The series will not be entitled to a second season

HBO didn't say why it canceled Betty which starred Kabrina Adams and Debe Lovelace. The network simply said that it "won't be moving forward" with Season 3 of the series likely due to low ratings. HBO is never afraid to distribute seasons for shows that have a lot of viewers, so that was probably a potential motivating factor behind the business decision.
