Waiting for word - what's your guess?

So I hope K&H don't mind this fandom specific post, but I've been googling for news on a certain show renewal/cancellation and wondering where everyone else's gut is on it? Care to take a guess? Share your thoughts? If you're not an H50 fan, but have another show you're sooo very happy survived or you're in mourning for, would love to hear about it, too!


My guess is it gets a season six. I hope so if only because I'd hate to see the story line with Steve's mom never get resolved (except in fanfic). I l like the character of Doris, but also have a lot of feels about what both her character and his father did that left him so compartmentalized and overly self-reliant. I'd love to see them play that out - and have his character arc really play out, too.

That said, the writing's been so all over the place that who knows if they'd even get that done right? I would hope so. And if there's an S6 I would also hope they'd pull out the stops and write some strong stuff. I was feeling good at the top of S5, but then the last few left me literally shaking my head.

What's your gut?

I'm of two minds concerning renewal:

-It's syndicated now so that's very profitable for the network. They get decent ratings for Friday night. I think CBS might renew for those reasons.

-OTOH - I'm not sure I want it renewed, not if Scott is only part time. The main reason I watch is for Steve/Danno and if it's not there, then I have little reason to tune it. You're right - the writing has been all over the place. Fanfiction is way better than most of their contrived, uninteresting stories.

Other (very not) important insights:
-I don't like Doris and don't particularly care if we get a resolution to that story.

-If it turns out that Charlie is Danny's baby, I am definitely off the show. Would they dare do that? Rumors are that they will use Charlie as a way to write Danny out. It would be a cheap trick if they do that. And without Danny, I'm not watching the show anyway.

-I like Lou but why is he getting all the stories? Even my sister who is a casual viewer wants to know why Lou is Steve's partner instead of Danny.

-I loved Friday's episode with Kono. But it should have only focused on Kono. The lame crime-of-the-week was, yet again, an unnecessary distraction.

-I wish we had some inkling about what next year might hold. Is Scott coming back full time, if it is renewed? Is Catherine staying despite the haters (of which I am not one)? Who is the new "big bad?"

So many questions and so few answers! So frustrating!!! I do think it's not necessarily a good sign that CBS hasn't made an announcement about their fate yet when other shows have been renewed.

The Kono episode is what convinced me a wheel has come off the writing ship. There's no way you should just wrap that around a crime of the week! It made what could have been an excellent story a very disjointed whumpfest, I thought.

I have mixed emotions about where they might go, too. But I'm realizing more of me would be disappointed to see it end without an ending.

I am predicting at least a 13 episode final season Treatment. It has a huge enough fanbase that it should at least get that

I like that idea! It would likely force the 13 episodes to be more focused - less room for crime of the week stories.

Me...I'm waiting nervously to find out if Constantine has been given a second season. A ton of people have done everything we could to support the creator/writer/producers who met with NBC to pitch the second season...but there's been no word yet.

Fingers crossed for you all! I take it from an article I read yesterday that all announcements should be out by the weekend - I guess maybe there is some Mid-May deadline by which they have to say go or no. I hope you get good news!
