Every May, the Television Circle of Life giveth and taketh away as the broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and the CW — set their schedules for the next TV season. The process inevitably involves each network taking a hard look at its existing programming lineup, to decide which shows to keep and which ones to cut.

And while lots of the verdicts are already in, plenty of shows are still on the bubble. Below, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of all the broadcast shows you can expect to see again in the coming year, all the ones to which you’ll have to bid adieu, and all the ones that are still awaiting their fate. Stay tuned; we’ll be updating this list as more news comes in.
