The three main successes of supernumerary are: naturlaness, gauge coupling unification, and a thermal dark matter candidate. Although experimental constraints on supersymmetry has pushed it to a region of parameter space which is less natural, the other two motivations for supersymmetry are still in tact. I will discuss under what conditions can we still get a good thermal dark matter candidate. The two main ways being gluino coannihilation and stop coannihilation. These methods of generating a thermal dark matter candidate will persist for dark matter masses up to of order 8 TeV, well beyond the reach of the LHC.
