Two of the major US television networks have released their draft renewal lists ahead of the official announcement in May, and it isn’t looking superb for genre programming with only a couple of shows definitely returning.
Chuck and Heroes will be cracking open the champagne as they are definitely listed as returning, however the mood will be far more subdued in the Bionic Woman and Journeyman camps, with neither of the shows being mentioned. Currently under debate as to whether they should return are the troubled post-apocalyptic drama Jericho, and the surprise hit of the season, Moonlight.
While this shouldn’t be regarded as an official announcement just yet, it is tantamount to fully supporting some shows and dropping others. However, quite why a quality production such as Journeyman can be discarded in favour of So You Think You Can Dance? is beyond us.
