Owned by NBC Universal, the studio hopes that Fox will pick up the show for its eighth season, thus extending their negotiations until April 15.
If an agreement isn’t reached, NBC will take the show to other networks.
In addition, the stars of the show are also negotiating their contracts and none have signed on for the next season. One of the show’s stars, Robert Sean Leonard, hinted that he may leave at the end of the season.
The site reports that Leonard is already booked for the Broadway revival of Born Yesterday.
