All the canceled and renewed TV shows from the 2017-’18 season

All of this TV season’s cancellations and renewals, in one handy list.

The cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine salutes the ratings gods for saving them from cancellation.
Aja Romano writes about pop culture, media, and ethics. Before joining Vox in 2016, they were a staff reporter at the Daily Dot. A 2019 fellow of the National Critics Institute, they’re considered an authority on fandom, the internet, and the culture wars.

As the broadcast networks plan their schedules for the next TV season, the axes come out and hard choices must be made.

Renewals and cancellations season can bring sad losses and consternation — like Fox cancelling Lucifer and canceling Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and then announcing a revival of the canceled ABC comedy Last Man Standing. But it can also bring unexpected delights, like ABC renewing Black-ish and NBC swooping in a few days after Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s cancellation to pick it up for a sixth season on that network.

This year, the networks — ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and The CW — have been quick to announce their decisions, so we already have a good idea of which shows will thrive, barely survive, or die. But there are plenty of fates still in the balance, so check back here for the comprehensive list of what’s leaving the air and what’s returning.

Which broadcast TV shows were recently canceled or have already aired their planned series finales?

The cast of Once Upon a Time gets ready to enjoy their happy ever after.
