Over the years, The CW Network has provided some excellent programming and shows that, depending on what we were watching, kept us on the edge of our seats. It was disappointing when our favorites were canceled, especially when the series hadn't finished their stories and ended on cliffhangers, which is an unsatisfying way to end a show.

We might experience that again, as The CW recently dropped its Fall 2024 schedule. Immediately, it raised concern as several shows were missing from the lineup. We know Superman and Lois is flying back for its fourth and final seasons and are on the fall schedule. The others, such as Walker, Wild Cards, and All American, are left in limbo, making us wonder if the network has quietly canceled them.

There's still hope that the shows off the schedule will make it to midseason, but it depends on whether the ratings are good enough for the green light following their current season wrap-ups. For example, All American and Walker are airing on Monday and Wednesday nights, respectively, and if their performance ratings prove substantial, then there's a possibility of renewal.

However, there has been no confirmed decision on whether these shows, along with All American's spin-off, All American: Homecoming, will return for another season.

Per TVLine's interview with the CW President of Entertainment, Brad Schwartz, he quoted the fate of these fan-favorite shows.

"We’re having active conversations on all of them right now. We just didn’t need to make those decisions this week [at the Upfront]. I guess you can call them bubble shows."

Schwartz's answer doesn't inflict much of an answer, but we still hope for that mid-season green light on these shows and some others who didn't make the fall schedule for this year.

All American

The drama, which focuses on high school football and is inspired by the life of the real-life NFL player Spencer James, is currently airing its sixth season on Monday nights. Daniel Ezra portrays James while he juggles his life on and off the field.

All American was an immediate hit when it premiered in October 2018 and has been part of both the fall and midseason schedules.

The season six finale will drop in July 2024, totaling 104 episodes of the show. It's with hope that All American will make a touchdown with a season 7 renewal and air midseason 2025.

All American: Homecoming

All American: Homecoming is the spin-off of All American, and like it, is a sports drama. It centers on Simone Hicks (Geffri Maya), who left Los Angeles after her high school graduation to attend college in Atlanta, Georgia, in hopes of achieving her dream of becoming a professional tennis player.

What's annoying about Homecoming being in limbo is that very few shows on broadcast television showcase women of color accomplishing a definitive goal. If it were to be canceled, it would be a wrong move on The CW.

The second season wrapped up in the spring of 2023, and the third season underwent a lengthy hiatus and wasn't scheduled on the 2023 Fall Lineup or midseason. Instead, season three will premiere this summer on July 8th and will consist of thirteen episodes.

Sight Unseen

Sight Unseen is one of The CW's newest installments, premiering in the 2024 midseason. The series follows a blind former detective named Tess (Dolly Lewis) who helps solve cases with the aid of her seeing-eye guide and assistant, Sunny (Agam Darshi). It's currently airing on Wednesdays, with an expected season one finale date in June.

One of the positive points of Sight Unseen is that its main protagonist is a woman with a disability. While Tess does struggle with its challenges, she vows to be independent and self-reliant in a world where sight is of primary value. If Sight Unseen were to be canceled, it would feel like a disservice to the Disabled Community, as leading disabled characters with substantial worth and storylines are hard to come by.

Additionally, the drama is a co-production of the US and CBC Canada, and you'll recognize other CW actors like Daniel Gillies from The Originals and The Vampire Diaries and Jarod Joseph from The 100.

Walker is the reboot of the NBC 1990's hit, Walker, Texas Ranger. While Jared Padalecki (Cordell Walker) is no Chuck Norris (also Cordell Walker), he tries his best while trying to keep the crime levels down in Austen, Texas, Along with his job as a Texan Ranger, Walker additionally balances his home life with his family following his wife's death.

The first season was greenlit before Nexstar's 2022 acquisition and premiered in 2021. Walker received solid ratings, and its premiere episode broke viewership records. However, later seasons witnessed a drop.

Walker is currently in its fourth season, and according to Schwartz, the season finale is structured to act like a series finale in the event that season five doesn't happen. However, its prequel, Walker: Independence, which aired during the 2022-2023 schedule, was canceled after one season due to financial constraints.

Wild Cards

Wild Cards is a fun procedural drama starring Riverdale alum Vanessa Morgan as Max Mitchell and former Grey's Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti as Cole Ellis. The two create an incredible team in crime solving. Max is a former con woman, and Cole works on the police force. While their professions place them on the opposite spectrum, the chemistry between Max and Cole is unmatched.

The freshman series proved to be a smash success for The CW, gaining more than half a million viewers for the finale, "Romancing the Egg," on March 10. As a delightful bonus, Riverdale Easter eggs were laid throughout season one, which cleverly connected Morgan to her Riverdale character, Toni Topaz.

With Wild Cards not being set into the fall schedule, its fans were more worried if the network canceled the series. Rest assured, no cancellation has been confirmed, nor has a renewal, for that matter. However, Schwartz revealed to Deadline in February about a possible season two.

"We have not renewed [Wild Cards] yet, but that is a conversation that’s happening right now. It’s the type of show that could run for ten seasons, those shows don’t exist much anymore. It really could be something."

It's painstakingly obvious that the decision hasn't been made yet, but hopefully, in the next couple of weeks, some good news regarding Wild Cards' fate will drop.
