Even though television shows are regularly canceled, more than 20 fan-favorites got the boot this year. CBS, Fox, ABC, NBC, and CW released their lists.


As reported by Pop Culture, Fox revealed the biggest shocker by refusing to renew the award-winning comedy show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, despite the show's high ratings.

Not to miss out on the opportunity, NBC swooped the show up the following day and ordered 13 episodes for season six which will premiere in 2019.

In turn, NBC had to cancel the highly anticipated action series Taken after its first season, along with Great News, The Brave and Rise.


Fox's new five-year contract with the NFL placed channel executives under immense pressure, and the network has to free up time-slots for Major League Baseball games.

Lucifer, featuring Tom Ellis and Lauren German, was canceled after just three seasons. The Last Man on Earth made it to season four before getting the boot, along with The Exorcist and The Mick, who were both canceled after only three seasons.


Fans of Scorpion will be heartbroken to learn that CBS canceled the popular action drama after it's the fourth season. Kevin Can Wait and Superior Donuts was canceled after the second season.


Also on CBS, comedy series Me, Myself and I, starring Bobby Moynihan, and 9JKL starring Mark Feuerstein and Linda Levin will not be renewed either.

ABC executives disappointed fans with the cancellation of Quantico after three seasons. The show earned high ratings, but it was not enough to survive the cut.


Designated Survivor survived two seasons before getting the boot, with ABC also canceling The Crossing, Deception and Alex Inc after their first seasons, respectively.

Lastly, CW only canceled two shows this year. Valor, starring Matt Barr in the role of Captian Leland Gallo and Christina Ochoa as officer Nora Madani, was canceled after his first season.

Comedy-drama series Life Sentence also wasn't renewed for a second season, and the last episode will air on June 15, 2018.
