Sunday Best on BET is wrapping up season 7 and fans are wondering whether the show will be renewed or canceled.
The network has not yet made an announcement.
Usually it’s possible to make an educated guess on what will happen based primarily on ratings for the current season compared with previous seasons and other shows on the network, but for some reason ratings don’t seem to be available–anywhere–for season 7. Or many of the other seasons.
Sunday Best features a search for the best undiscovered gospel talent in America, with judges Yolanda Adams, Kierra Sheard, and Donnie McClurkin helping narrow the contestants field.
The winner receives a number of rewards, including a national recording contract.
What sometimes happens, and what may happen during the finale on Sunday night, is that host Kirk Franklin announces that the show was renewed during the season finale.
With such a long-running show that has in the past been heralded for its relatively high ratings, it would be unusual for a cancellation unless ratings had dropped significantly.
Ultimately, the only way to find out is to wait for BET to make an announcement.
