In danger: Forever

Like with Lore, this is a Prime Original I’m worried about. Forever debuted in September 2018 and we haven’t heard anything about it since. It’s clear that the showrunners would like to do a second season but it looks like Amazon isn’t so keen.

Let’s be honest, there are storylines available. And I’m surprised there isn’t more interest. However, maybe promotion for the series wasn’t quite right. I’ll be honest and say I was confused by what I was watching at first. It was nothing like I expected based on the promo and show synopsis.

Surprises like this for a first season aren’t always taken well. Forever may be a casualty because of this.

In danger: The Code

CBS’ newest legal and military drama in one, The Code doesn’t look like it will get renewed. It immediately opened up to a poor performance and has dropped almost each episode since. And it’s not just about the ratings. The feedback on consistency and accuracy errors may also be causing problems for the show.

Whatever the reason, The Code is one of the worst-performing shows on the network. That’s not good for a freshman show that airs on a Monday night, despite being a midseason series. CBS will need to make some room for new shows and The Code being canceled will help with that.

In danger: The Fix

As I’ve mentioned, ABC isn’t having much luck with its freshman TV shows. The Fix is one of the midseason arrivals that just isn’t performing as well as the network likely hoped. It wouldn’t be overly surprising if ABC chose to cancel it.

This will certainly be a disappointing cancellation. The storytelling has been on point and it is a twisty thriller. However, it looks like there’s just too much on TV right now!

Should save: Nightflyers

SYFY didn’t do Nightflyers any favors at all, airing it daily instead of weekly. Viewers aren’t used to that format for TV shows on network TV, so it’s not surprising that people didn’t tune in. However, on Amazon Prime, that sort of format would work (or just release it all at once).

Nightflyers is based on the short story by George R.R. Martin. It should have been a huge hit considering what Game of Thrones became. However, it didn’t get the attention — and maybe part of it was lack of promotion as well as weird airing times.

This series would work perfectly with The Expanse, another show SYFY canceled before it should have. This one Amazon did save.
