Which popular TV shows were canceled or renewed in 2018?

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
