There’s no question that every TV season produces some winners and some losers, and this year a ton of low-rated programs, from The Player to Blood & Oil, have already seen their episode orders cut. However, among those poor performers, there are plenty of diamonds that have managed to earn good—if not great—reviews and an avid fanbase.

Each year, we put together a list of the shows we feel will have enough longevity to move forward, not just for a second season, but over the long haul. Predicting a show's trajectory is not easy or exact, of course, as sometimes shows will reboot, lose a showrunner or take a tumble in the ratings after trying out a storyline that fans just don’t dig. Regardless, thus far this season, there have been six shows that have shown signs of sticking around for a long time to come. Without further ado, here are the six programs we feel will still be on the air 5 years from now. Let us know if you agree or think we missed any in the comments, below.

Blindspot, NBC
While NBC also spent a lot of time marketing Heroes Reborn, Blindspot has been the clear winner of the network’s 2015-2016 fall schedule, pulling in solid numbers each week. The Jaimie Alexander-starrer is averaging 12.7 million total viewers and a 3.7 rating, plus NBC has already announced that Blindspot will be returning for Season 2. This show has a bright future in front of it, and we’d be shocked if it didn’t make it to the five-year mark. Now, NBC just needs to pair it with The Blacklist, and my viewing schedule would be set.
