There are certain shows on the cusp of cancellation. These shows haven’t all had the best support from their networks or have had some questionable storylines that have been too confusing to follow. However, fans want to see them return. Here’s a look at four bubble shows that fans want to see on TV screens in the 2017-2018 season.

NBC’s ‘Powerless’

One of the worst things for a freshman show is to not have the support of the network. That’s just what “Powerless” has had to put up with from the very first day. Knowing that it wasn’t going to be strong for live ratings, NBC put the hope in streaming afterwards. However, a planned week off turned into an unscheduled fortnight break and fans quickly took to Twitter to share their outrage.

On top of that, problems with episode order in Canada and parts of the U.S. have made it almost impossible to keep track of the show. Poorly written character and canned laughter also hasn’t made it the most likeable or unique show on the air.

NBC’s ‘Timeless’

This second NBC freshman show did at least get the backing of the network. In fact, during its season run, the network ordered three more episodes to the season. Unfortunately, returning to the air after the midseason break led to a scary drop in ratings. The final episodes may not have been enough to save the show.

Timeless” creator Eric Kripke remains in talks with NBC about a second season. It is possible that this bubble show will return, but possibly in the midseason lineup instead.

ABC’s ‘Quantico’

Quantico” was a refreshing show last year.

It was full of intrigue and mystery, with a very unique set up of two timelines running parallel to each other. “Quantico” season 2 attempted the same but failed. However, ABC did attempt to save it by moving it to Mondays in January.

The new timeslot sort of helped, but it was the dual timeline that didn’t help. Creators opted to push everything into the present day after the show took March off. This has certainly revitalized things, but “Quantico” season 3 is still questionable.

CBS’ ‘Elementary’

For the first year, “Elementary” didn’t get an early renewal from CBS. The soft ratings have proven problematic, and the network will want to see if it will pick up at all. There are a few elements that save this show, mainly the fact that it is wholly owned by CBS. That means CBS gains all the profit from the show.

There are some excellent international numbers, and the streaming services helped to bring in enough money to justify keeping “Elementary” on the air.
