Modern Family

The Dunphy-Pritchett gang returned for one more season. Even though this is great news, it was the last one too. Well, an 11-season run was not bad at all. Fun fact: this show is the top-rated comedy on ABC!

Timeless

It is tragic to hear that the show got the ax yet again. This is the second time it has happened as it was revived once, but it seems final this time around. Sony Pictures Television and NBC decided to cancel it.

Riverdale

The teens of Riverdale were able to live past the threat of the CW spring cleaning. Whew. What would we do if the show was no longer on the air? We wonder what the fourth season is going to bring.

Bull

Things began to go downhill for this show after Eliza Dushku revealed that she was being harassed by Michael Weatherly. According to her, it was “one of the cruelest, most aggressive humiliations I have ever experienced.” The ratings of the show declined after that, but it was still granted a fourth season.

Jane the Virgin

We loved seeing this telenovela-inspired TV show on the small screen. Gina Rodriguez was a great lead star, but the whole cast is talented as well. The fifth season was the last, and the finale aired in 2019.

How to Get Away with Murder

How can you possibly be shocked to hear that this drama show got picked up for a sixth season? After all, there is no one out there quite like Annalise Keating. We can’t wait to see how things will progress.

Sorry to break it to you, but Take-Two is not going to get a second season. The police procedural did not get enough viewers, apparently. We are sure that this had a part to play in its cancelation.

S.W.A.T.

While Sher Moore no longer has to work on Criminal Minds, he has been busy with S.W.A.T. It is a given that the show was inspired by the film of the same name. You can rest easy now as it has been renewed!

Sadly, The Passage was not as successful as the source material. Maybe this book series by Justin Cronin was not supposed to be adapted for the TV screen. The show only got one season before it got canceled.
