All the Canceled And Renewed TV Shows For 2016 and 2017


Netflix (RENEWED)

Jessica Jones: Unpopular opinion time! I actually preferred Jessica Jones to Daredevil. Look, both are amazing, but I loved David Tenant’s Purple Man and Krysten Ritter’s Jessica; I loved the grittiness of Hell’s Kitchen; I loved the dialogue and the drama. I am so excited for Luke Cage, and I’m intrigued about what Season 2 may hold.

Also renewed:
BoJack Horseman
Chef’s Table
F Is for Family
Fuller House
Grace and Frankie
House of Cards
Master of None
Orange Is the New Black
Peaky Blinders
The Ranch
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


Hemlock Grove: I gave Hemlock Grove a good chance, and you know what? It wasn’t the worst thing ever. It kept me entertained for the season and a half I watched, and the CGI was pretty great too. But sadly, after three seasons it wasn’t getting the hype needed to resurrect it, so RIP Hemlock Grove.

Also cancelled:
The Fall


Supergirl: Nerds rejoice! Supergirl has not left us to fend for ourselves but is returning to Earth by way of the CW. After producing many successful seasons of both The Flash and Arrow, it makes perfect sense that Supergirl would leave her old home on CBS and join the family.

Also renewed:
The Amazing Race
2 Broke Girls
48 Hours
60 Minutes
The Big Bang Theory
Blue Bloods
Code Black
Criminal Minds
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

Person of Interest: There’s sadly no Season 6 is in the works for this CBS drama, which was announced only hours after the release of the Season 5 premier date. Executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman thanked fans in this statement to IGN upon the shows cancelation:

“We’re extremely excited to be able share this final season with the fans. We’re eternally grateful to our amazing cast and crew, as well as our partners at the studio and network. Most of all, we want to thank the show’s fans — the best fans in the world. This subversive little paranoia-inducing cyberpunk-thriller is for you and would not have been possible without your support.

Also canceled/over:
Mr. Robinson
The Mysteries of Laura
The Player
Truth Be Told
You, Me and the Apocalypse

Game of Silence


How to Get Away With Murder: This is show is probably the most ridiculous/gripping thing on TV right now, and we just can’t get enough. How To Get Away With Murder follows a group of young defence attorneys and their enigmatic teacher, professor Annalise Keating. The show is literally about people getting away with murder, both in and out of the courthouse, and it’s amazing. Roll on Season 3!

Also canceled/over:
Of Kings and Prophets
The Muppets
Blood & Oil
Wicked City
The Family


Bob’€™s Burgers

Sleepy Hollow


American Idol: After 14 successful years of churning out pop’s biggest and brightest starlets, only to have them fizzle into nothing finally aired its last episode on April 7th. Love it or hate it, there’s a tiny, minuscule part of me that’s sad to see it go.

Also canceled/over:
Knock Knock Live
Minority Report
Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life
The Grinder
Second Chance


Girls: When Girls premiered in 2012, creator Lena Dunham was hailed for her realistic portrayal of twenty-somethings trying to make it work in New York City without a clue how. As the years rolled on, however, the show lacked a spark and the characters became increasingly unlikeable. Whether this was deliberate or not is up for debate, but despite this the show has been renewed for just one more season.

Also renewed:
Game of Thrones
Silicon Valley
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
The Leftovers (For a final third season)
Real Time with Bill Maher


The Brink


Legends of Tomorrow: Time travel, superheroes, secret organizations and power — Legends of Tomorrow has it all! Tied into CW’s Arrowverse, the show was bound to do well, and even though it received “mixed to average reviews,” they were enough good enough secure a second season.

Also renewed:
The Flash
Jane the Virgin
The Originals
Penn & Teller: Fool Us
The Vampire Diaries
The 100
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend


Beauty and the Beast
America’s Next Top Model


American Horror Story: Of course American Horror Story got renewed, what would Halloween season be without it?! Season 5’s Hotel starred Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lady Gaga and was a roaring success with both critics and fans. News of Season 6 has already been surfacing, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Orphan Black (BBC America): One show that gets better and better is Orphan Black. I recently binged watched Season 3 & 4 and was gripped from start to finish. It’s one of the smartest sci-fi shows still airing and totally deserves all the support it’s received.
