A New Old World: Cancellations and Renewals


Here’s the scorecard of recently announced TV cancellations and renewals, as we all bite our fingernails waiting for those final few verdicts to trickle in, particularly (I’m guessing), Nashville, Hannibal, and Community. UPDATE:  Hannibal just renewed.


CANCELLED: Trophy Wife, Mixology, and Neighbors. (Comment: Trophy Wife was superbly cast and sweet and funny, if slight, will be missed – the other two, good riddance)

RENEWED: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Once upon a Time, Resurrection, Castle, Scandal, Revenge, Goldbergs, Modern Family, Dancing with the Stars, and Grey’s Anatomy. (Comment: Woot!)


CBS renewed nearly everything back in March. Among those renewed:  2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Millers and Mom, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Person of Interest, CSI, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary and The Good Wife.


CANCELLED:  The Carrie Diaries, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed.  (Comment: The latter two were expected, freshman shows that never quite made it off the ground, and The Carrie Diaries was another sweet but slight show that struggled in its second season.)

RENEWED: The 100, Hart of Dixie, and (slightly surprisingly) Beauty and the Beast.  ArrowReign, and The Vampire Diaries have already been renewed. (CommentNeither The 100 or Hart of Dixie is inspired television, but both are very entertaining and I’m glad to see them return.) The pilot for the Supernatural spinoff  received very poor response from viewers and has been canceled (I feel vindicated).


CANCELLED: Surviving JackEnlistedDads, Almost Human

RENEWED: American Idol, Sleepy Hollow. Previously renewed: New Girl, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Following (Woot all around!!)


NBC is slowly releasing news today; the fates of Community, Parenthood, Revolution, Dracula, Growing up Fisher, and are all up in the air. Of these, it’s nearly certain that Community will be canceled (nooooooooo!).

RENEWED: Hannibal, About a BoyLaw and Order: SVU, The Blacklist, Grimm, Parks and Recreation

CANCELLED: Crisis, Believe, Ironside

What’s your favorite show that got renewed? What show’s cancellation are you mourning the most?
