Hello everyone!
As we all know there are shows that can stay in the renewal/cancellation limbo for months or even years (yes, I'm looking at you, Sherlock), especially non-American shows and some low-key series produced by Netflix and other streaming platforms. So I was wondering, why not implement a "Pending" status along with "Continuing" and "Ended" ones?
That said, I have honestly no clue how website coding works or if any moderator can implement something like this, but I just wanted to put the idea out there. Thanks!

What does pending tell you? It's not canceled, hence the continuing status. I honestly do not see the benefit of an additional status.

Well, it tells you that the show has not been renewed, so it's not certain that it will actually continue, and has not been cancelled either, so there's still hope it will continue..
I just think the continuing status doesn't fit shows that didn't received uptades on renewal/cancellation for months, that's all
