Get it? Jack Bauer is the murderous TV network and that dude's hand is a show getting the axe!
Welp, it's that time of year once again, when the TV networks put all their existing shows and all their possible future shows into one giant cage match and not all of them come out alive. As we all know too well, it doesn't matter who we're rooting for or betting against—anything can happen. Especially because networks sometimes play favorites or resort to sabotage in the weeks leading up to Upfronts to strengthen or weaken their players (seriously, sometimes the scheduling they tricks they pull are the equivalent of handing the competitors a folding chair). But at this point, that's neither here nor there: All you want to know is, "Has my favorite show been renewed or canceled or is it in some weird production limbo?" Well, that's what we're here for!
Below you'll find a comprehensive,
show-by-show status update as we head into the Upfronts, where final
decisions will be made on almost every network program. We've
placed each show in one of six different categories: 1. Renewed, 2.
Likely Renewal, 3. On the Bubble (meaning their fate could go either
way), 4. Likely Cancellation, 5. Canceled, 6. Final Season.
Of course, we've also included a ton of programs from higher up on the dial, because cable is the future! You can
filter the list by network, name, and status to help you find what
you're looking for even faster. We'll update this list as news happens,
so be sure to bookmark it and keep checking back.
you can also combine the filters, i.e. you can select a few networks and
multiple letters in the event that you only want to know the statuses
of programs that begin with "R" or "G" on History,
Fox, and Showtime (or whatever). And if you're looking for a show whose
title starts with "The," you'll find under it under "T." To return to
the master list, just hit "Clear All" in the bottom right corner of
Finally, here's the boring disclaimer: As always, information is subject to change, and putting together a giant list like this isn't easy. If you think something is incorrect or missing, leave a note in the comments, email email@example.com, or send a tweet to @tvdotcom, @TimAtTVdotcom, or @thekaitling and we'll look into it as soon as we can.
Please allow a second or five for the hamsters to spin the wheels and load the list.
