NBC has announced all the shows that it has canceled for its 2018/ 2019 season. Some of the shows will still play out their last seasons of the year.
The fall will see NBC losing Thursday Night Football which will be moving to Fox. In January 2018, Fox signed a five-year deal for the games.
NBC will get one of the Thanksgiving Day games and will continue to be the home of the national Sunday Night Football game. Despite this, the network has had to let go of some fan-favorites that didn’t make the cut.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The Night Shift was canceled in October 2017. The low-profile medical drama was given the boot after four seasons which ended last August.
Law & Order: True Crime was a series that attempted to cash-in on the success of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Unfortunately, it did not capture the national conversation on the former star.
"I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!"

TV Line reported that Great News was also canceled. NBC ended Tina Fey’s workplace comedy after only two seasons for the lack of good ratings.
In April 2018, Jennifer Lopez confirmed that Shades of Blue would be ending after its upcoming fourth season. The 10 episodes are said to begin on June 17, 2018, according to Daily Mail.
The series Taken was meant to be the TV version of the Taken films starring Liam Neeson. Although the movies had huge ratings, the television version failed to do the same reported Deadline.
The show only managed to get a second season after it was retooled and experienced a cast shakeup. This still failed to give the series good ratings.
NBC canceled The Brave as a formality as its season finale was on January 29, 2018, according to Deadline. The network decided last fall not to order a "back nine," which was effectively a cancellation.
The show’s 13 episodes averaged less than 5 million viewers. The series failed to garner a second season.
NBC, did, however, renew some favorites. This included all three Dick Wolf-produced Chicago shows, Law & Order: SVU and This Is Us.
The reality hit show, The Voice, will also be coming back. There are a few shows that haven’t been canceled nor renewed like: The Blacklist, Champions, Genius Junior, Rise, and Timeless.
