Every year, around May, television networks decide which of their shows should continue to air and which ones should be put to rest.


In 2018, that wasn't any different; ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC have been breaking hearts and giving fans all over the world hope as they cancel and renew shows that bring joy to fans across the globe.

According to a list compiled by Entertainment Tonight, big names such as Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy, Black-ish, NCIS and Family Guy will surely return with a brand new season, but other series won't be so lucky.

Starting with Fox, the network decided to end The Exorcist, LA to Vegas, the Last Man on Earth, Lucifer and The Mick. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was canceled but it was revived by NBC.


The renewed shows were:


Bob's Burgers


Family Guy

The Four: Battle for Stardom

The Giftet, Gotham

Hell's Kitchen

Lethal Weapon

The Orville

The Resident

The Simpsons


NBC canceled The Brave, Great News, The Night Shift, Rise and Taken, but gave quite a lot of shows a chance to shine again, such as:

American Ninja Warrior

America's Got Talent

A.P. Bio

The Blacklist


Chicago Fire

Chicago Med

Chicago P.D.


Ellen's Game of Games

Good Girls

The Good Place

Law & Order: SVU

Midnight Texas


This Is Us

The Voice

The Wall


Trial & Error

Will & Grace

World of Dance


ABC was the network with the most canceled shows. Among those names were: Alex, Inc., Boy Band, The Crossing, Deception, Designated Survivor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Marvel's Inhumans, The Mayor, Quantico, Somewhere Between, Ten Days in the Valley and The Toy Box.


The shows that earned another season based on their good ratings were:

American Housewife

American Idol

The Bachelor

Bachelor in Paradise

The Bachelorette


Child Support

Dancing With the Stars

For the People

Fresh Off the Boat

Grey's Anatomy

How to Get Away

With Murder

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD

Match Game

Modern Family


Shark Tank



Splitting Up


Station 19


Last but not least, CBS chose to put and ed to 9JKL, Kevin Can Wait, Living Biblically, Me, Myself & I, Wisdom of the Crowd, Scorpion, Superior Donuts and Zoo. But despite these losses, plenty of household names remained on the air, such as:

48 Hours

60 Minutes

The Amazing Race

Life in Pieces
