FOX Renew/Cancel: For The Resident and Prodigal Son, Things Are Less Certain

FOX has not had a Renew/Cancel update in quite a while. But there are plenty to say today. Here are this week's predictions.

The Moodys

Prodigal Son: Things have cooled down quite a bit for the highest rated rookie drama on the FOX lineup. Currently holding steady at a 0.7, Prodigal Son has things going for it. However, it's only partially owned by FOX, with the other 50% being produced by Warner Bros. That may work against it, if the other rookies such as 9-1-1: Lone Star, Deputy, neXt, and Filthy Rich do better. But for now, Prodigal Son leans renewal. It's the only rookie with a full season order going for it.

The Resident: Being fully produced by Disney is going to work against it, but cancelation is becoming less likely for it than it once was. The only reason why I don't think The Resident is as certain of a cancelation as many New FOX pessimists may think is because it is in season 3. I think The Resident may end up like Lucifer which you may recall ended up on Netflix after FOX canceled it after three seasons. While I am leaning towards The Resident not getting another season on FOX, fans should have some hope for a possible Hulu run in the future.

And as noted on the table, The Moodys is a miniseries. No prediction will be coming for it. It's not coming back for another season no matter the ratings.
