This is Us (ENDING)
This is Us quickly became one of the most popular series on NBC, and people can’t stop talking about it (and binging it where it’s available). It's no surprise that the series was renewed. What's more is that it was renewed for three seasons, taking it through to six seasons.
We do have some sad news for fans, however, and we're going to just rip the Band-Aid off -- season six will be the last one. It's pretty heartbreaking but all good things have to come to an end sometime. Season six will debut on Tuesday, January 4th. Supposedly, season six will be the most dramatic ever, so you won't want to miss it.
The Resident (RENEWED)
The Resident is pretty popular, so it's already been renewed for a fifth season. The third season got cut short by three episodes because of the pandemic. The show's executive producer, Todd Harthan, told TVLine, "We had all these building blocks – scripts that were written, and some extra shot footage."
Thankfully, the fourth came back strong and won fans back over. It has maintained an 84% Rotton Tomatoes score, which isn't easy for TV shows. The newest season is the fifth, and it started on September 21st! Currently, there's no news on season six, but if this season goes well, we're guessing it's coming.
Blue Bloods (RENEWED)
Blue Bloods was a hit the moment they cast Tom Selleck as the lead – everyone loves Tom Selleck. However, people stayed because of the drama. It was renewed for the 12th season, which began on October 1st. It had quite a bit of drama and some stuff that riled us up -- what was up with the judge?!
The 12th season is going pretty great, but there hasn't been any news about a renewal. That being said, we see it coming. There's no way it'll get canceled unless something major happens like an actor leaving (and that isn't in the cards currently). As always, we'll keep you updated!
Debris is a brand-new show about two agents who investigate the wreckage of a destroyed alien spacecraft. They're two very different people, but they have to work together to see what this UFO has in store for humanity. It’s one of the first alien conspiracy shows we’ve seen since X-Files, so it’s worth a shot if you liked the classics.
Apparently, the alien theme didn't do it for this series. After a single season, NBC gave Debris the ax. The odd thing is that the first season was actually pretty well received. It maintains a 72% Rotten Tomatoes score. Guess that wasn't enough. Now, the season one finale acts as the conclusion of the show.
Manifest made a huge splash on TV in 2018. NBC was quick to renew it for a second season, which debuted on January 6th, 2020. Season three came pretty quickly, but that wasn't necessarily good news for the show. NBC canceled the show without giving it a chance for a series finale.
That means no season four -- sorry fans! Naturally, those who love the show are pretty angry. Apparently, they're called "Manifesters"...suuure. Currently, the series creator is working hard to find someone else to pick up the series, but no network has taken the bait. Streaming networks are working hard on their own stuff, so this one could be dead.
The Bachelor (RENEWED)
The Bachelor has been around since 2002 and shows no signs of stopping. The only problem? All the controversy it's faced since the beginning. It got so bad that Rachel Lindsay, the show's only Black Bachelorette, has threatened to leave Bachelor Nation if ABC doesn't correct their behavior in season 25.
This ended up with Chris Harrison being forced to leave the show following some awful comments. It was apparently not an amicable split, and some people are angry at Rachel for the "drama she caused" calling out his behavior. All this has left The Bachelor floating around without a solid return date. Thankfully, it has been renewed, and we can expect it to come in early 2022.
FBI is one of the highest-rated shows on TV right now, so CBS was more than happy to give it a fourth season. Season three began on November 17th. Since the last season was cut short, fans were a little concerned. No worries though – it was all due to concern for the staff members, especially as COVID-19 stirred up.
Thankfully, filming was simply on hold due to COVID-19 (and the show wasn't nixed.). The show is maintaining great ratings and views, so this train won't stop anytime soon. FBI season four is coming, likely returning to its original air date of early fall. On top of that, there have been talks of spin-offs from the show, including FBI: Most Wanted and FBI: International.
The Masked Singer (RENEWED)
The Masked Singer is an odd one, but it’s apparently doing well. It’s about celebs who go on the show and sing, but you don’t know who the guests are! It has a ton of mystery that fans absolutely adore. The series was renewed for a sixth season, which began on September 22nd.
Season seven has been officially renewed, although Fox hasn't stated the release date yet. It'll likely be March if the pattern remains the same. On top of that, Fox has begun producing a spin-off called Alter Ego. In this one, singers will create an "Alter Ego" or avatar that will perform how they've always wanted to be seen. Certainly interesting!
The Conners (RENEWED)
The new Roseanne show, sans Roseanne, has quickly become the No. 1 comedy of the 2018-2019 TV season, with a loyal 9.5 million viewers tuning in each week. Guess they didn’t need Barr to keep it going, huh? Execs are more than happy to continue this train, although filming is a little tricky right now.
Season three just started in October as the family dealt with the current world at hand, COVID-19 and politics both. It makes sense considering the show has never shied from hard-hitting topics over the years. ABC liked how the ratings looked, so the series has now been renewed for a fourth season. The next set began on September 22nd, 2021.
Maid is about a single mother who leaves her boyfriend but is forced to fight for custody. All she wants to do is give herself and her little girl the life they deserve. Anyone who started it had a hard time not bingeing all 10 episodes in one week.
It sits in Netflix's top 10, so will there be another season? Well, the series has been billed as a "limited series," meaning that there aren't going to be a ton of seasons. That being said, limited series can often have three seasons or more. Currently, Netflix hasn't said whether Maid will get a second season or not.
Last Man Standing (ENDING)
It took a while, but Last Man Standing was able to return for a ninth season. Fans waited, but they were upset to hear that this would be the series finale. Unlike many other shows, Fox decided to give Last Man Standing the finale it (and fans) deserves. Thank the TV Gods!
Thanks to COVID-19, everything that was planned went out the window, but that doesn’t mean writers were left with nothing. They quickly whipped something up, and fans seem happy so far. This marked the third and final season of the show on the Fox network. The new series will debut on May 20th.
Ginny & Georgia (RENEWED)
Dramedies are having their moment and shows like Ginny & Georgia are banking off that popularity. The series was released on Netflix in February, and there are already tons of fans. The show revolves around Georgia, who is the mother to Ginny and Austin. They move to Wellsbury to give her kids a better future.
Because of its popularity on Netflix and in the Twitter-sphere, Netflix just announced Ginny & Georgia has officially been renewed for season 2. The cast broke the exciting news with a cute little video on April 19, 2021. The newest season will be debuting on November 29, 2021.
SEAL Team (RENEWED)
Failure isn’t an option for SEAL Team! We couldn’t help ourselves. The series was renewed for a fourth season, which began in December on CBS. The only question we have: will Jason Boreanaz stay on the show? We can officially say that he will remain in the show for the next season.
Filming has been a little tricky, but season five is well on its way. The biggest change is that it will be moving to Paramount+. The first four episodes will air on CBS, but after that, it's all Paramount+. Boreanaz will also be directing more with this coming season, so that's a huge change. Expect season five on October 10, 2021.
All NCIS (MOSTLY RENEWED)
The OG NCIS got renewed for a 19th season pretty quickly. There’s no shocker there since it has had an average of 16 million viewers per episode. Nothing is better than the original! The biggest change is that NCIS will now be moving to Monday nights and will be followed up by NCIS Hawaii.
NCIS: Los Angeles was also renewed for a 13th season and will begin airing in September 2021. NCIS: New Orleans returned for the seventh season in November and continued through February, but sadly, the seventh was the final season for New Orleans. Guess the good times do stop rolling eventually.
WandaVision took Disney+ by storm. Since Disney decided to pull all of its Marvel content, fans knew that they had something in store – turns out, it was their own streaming service! On there, they could continue stories of characters from Phase One (as they move onto Phase Two for the movies).
So far, WandaVision has no official season two, but Kevin Feige has announced that the story will continue just "probably and inevitably in many different capacities." This means that there may not be a season two of WandaVision, but instead, their story could continue in a movie. Only time will tell.
God Friended Me (CANCELED)
God Friended Me had a decent first season, drawing 10 million viewers in the first episode. It was a comedy-drama about an atheist whose life is totally changed after God hits them up on social media (sliding into their DMs, if you will). It certainly sounds interesting; we’ll give them that.
After the popularity, the series was then renewed for a second season, which began on September 29th. Unfortunately, it didn't keep up the steam. The show was canceled and ended with a two-hour series finale on April 26, 2020. At least fans were given a finale, even if the show didn’t last as long as they wanted.
The Good Doctor (RENEWED)
The Good Doctor is currently ABC's highest-rated series. It's a show about a talented young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome. Quite a few critics and other viewers have complained about the portrayal of these two conditions, stating that the character isn’t realistic and is damaging, but fans still remain dedicated to the show.
It apparently has some really great characters and a compelling storyline! Because people are glued to their screens when it comes on, the series was given an additional season! Season five will be airing on September 27, 2021, on Monday nights. However, there will be one change. Antonia Thomas, who plays Dr. Claire Browne, won't be returning with the series. She's open to appearing as a guest star, but that's about it.
Squid Games (RENEWED)
Squid Games took the world by storm, and it was all anyone could talk about. This South Korean TV show was about people competing for money in children's games, but losing meant losing your life as well. It was super popular so we figured Netflix would want to renew it, although, we weren't sure the showrunners were interested.
The creator thankfully expressed the desire to do a second season, and he was given the green light to begin working on a second season! We get to look forward to the newest season of the series coming out sometime in 2024 (as long as the TV Gods are in our favor).
Bridgerton is all the rage these days. Netflix sure knows how to make an original series! Because season one was already one of the most popular TV shows on the whole platform, season two was immediately confirmed. Not only that, but you can expect a third and fourth as well!
There’s only one drawback: not everyone will return. Rege-Jean Page has notoriously exited the show, and some fans are less than happy. The fact of the matter is that he isn’t in the following books. He may make cameos here and there, but he won’t be a regular in the series any longer. Season two will be coming in 2022.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians (ENDING)
The time has finally come for the Kardashian group to call it! Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been a staple of E! TV for 14 years, but it's all coming to an end. After 20 seasons, the show is ending with its final season, which will air in early 2021.
What will the network do without the sisters? The show helped make the Kardashian family one of the most recognizable families in the world whether you like them or hate them. Season 19 began on September 17th, so season 20 will likely begin around the same time next year. Guess we’ll have to start watching something else…
Fixer Upper (RENEWED)
So, Chip and Joanna famously ditched HGTV in place of their own app, which is called Magnolia! Good for them, but how do we watch it? You can catch new episodes of the couple during their home renos on Discovery+. Currently, Magnolia only has an app, not an official network, but hopefully, they’ll get their own soon.
Fans feared the worst when the show was nixed, but that just gave the creative couple room for change. The new series is called Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, and there are a lot of new design techniques Joanna will be bringing to the show! So far, we know she’s nixing shiplap, but you’ll have to watch the show to see what else won’t be coming back. Fixer Upper: Welcome Home began on January 29, 2021. Currently, there's no news about an additional season.
Young Sheldon (RENEWED)
After The Big Bang Theory had so much popularity, network execs were set on finding another show that was similar to keep fans watching. That’s when they came up with Young Sheldon. The series follows nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper as he skips four grades and starts high school. Growing up wasn’t easy for this kiddo.
The series has been going on for a while now, and if you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory, it’s definitely worth checking out. Recently, CBS came out and announced that it would be picking up Young Sheldon for a fifth, sixth, and seventh season! Season five was released on October 7th, 2021 while six will be Fall 2022.
Cobra Kai (RENEWED)
Everyone thought the Karate Kid was over, but that wasn't completely true. Netflix brought back the movie in the form of a TV series. It takes place 34 years after the Karate Tournament and follows Johnny Lawrence as he seeks redemption. So, he decided it was time for the Cobra Kai dojo!
There have already been three seasons of Cobra Kai, which makes it dangerous for Netflix – the streaming platform rarely keeps shows past their third season. Thankfully, Cobra Kai leaped over that hurdle. It’s already filming for its fourth season, which will hit our screens on December 31st, 2021.
New Amsterdam (RENEWED)
It really seems like medical dramas are making a strong comeback. With so many great ones on TV, it was no surprise that New Amsterdam would make the splash it did! Fans and critics alike can’t get enough of the handsome, charming, and brilliant Dr. Max Goodwin. So far, the show has had two good seasons, but then it went on pause.
Did that mean the show wouldn’t come back? We especially were on the edge of our seats. Then, the news came! It’s time to rejoice because the show was given solid renewals for a fourth and fifth season (and until 2023)! No more guessing! Season four began on September 21st, 2021.
The Sinner (RENEWED)
The Sinner kind of came out of left field. It’s been going on for three seasons, but it had to pause back in March 2020 because of the COVID pandemic. Since then, we’ve had to wait for filming to begin so we can get the fourth season. Oh, did we slip that in there? Yes! There will be a fourth season!
For the fourth season, they’ve roped in some fantastic talent including Jessica Biel and Alice Kremelberg. The newest episodes began on October 13th, 2021, so get to watching if you're a fan! So far, there hasn't been any news on a fifth season, but this series isn't going anywhere any time soon!
Did the Byrds succeed in getting free?! It's the question on everyone's mind. If there's one thing that Ozark is good at, it's leaving you at a cliffhanger. It's almost unbareable, but we keep tuning in for more every time a new season releases. How could we not?!
The unfortunate thing is that it's all coming to an end. We just got season four, but fans quickly learned that it was just part one of two. That bit snuck up on most of us. The first installment just released, and as for the second? We'll see it coming our way April 29, 2022.
Arrow was one of the best superhero TV shows on air. It received critical acclaim and fans flocked to it, using it as the example many other hero shoes ought to follow. Because it was so good, CW was reluctant to let it go. Eight seasons later, and it’s time to end the series.
When CW renewed it for an eighth and final season, fans were sad. Think of it this way though: at least it’ll get the finale it deserves. The final season premiered on October 15, 2019 and wrapped up in January 2020. The worst part is since Disney pulled their Marvel content, there isn’t much superhero stuff on TV anymore.
Resident Alien (RENEWED)
Aliens really are having their moment right now, aren’t they? This relatively new show is about an alien who crashes on Earth. To blend in, he steals the identity of the town doctor, but that doesn't do any good! A small nine-year-old boy can see him for who he truly is.
Critics are saying that the show “came together in perfect harmony” and that the script alone “leapt off the page.” It helps that they have the talented Alan Tudyk playing the alien. It’s such a big hit that Syfy didn’t bother waiting long before giving it a second season. Whoo! Currently, there's no news when it'll release the new episodes.
The Voice (RENEWED)
Shows like The Voice and American Idol never get old! It’s great to watch it in the beginning because you see the people that…aren’t so great. Then, near the end of the competitions, you see those with a truly heavenly voice. That’s why The Voice has been going on for 20 seasons now!
Because it’s an NBC staple, the show had to go on! It’s going to keep airing, and I wouldn’t expect it to go anywhere anytime soon. It's already been renewed for a 21st season although there will be a bit of a change. It's moving to one cycle a year vs two, so you'll only get one season each year from here on out. The newest episodes began on September 20th, 2021.
Station 19 (RENEWED)
Shondaland TV shows usually get great ratings. Station 19 is about firefighters instead of doctors (like the beloved Grey’s Anatomy). While about a different emergency service, it still has the same professional and private life balance drama that fans adore from Shonda Rhimes. Station 19 has Shondaland fans in a tizzy since the Grey’s Anatomy crossover.
The fourth season began on November 12th. The show gave everyone a big shock when season four had a huge break. Viewers were scared it was canceled mid-season! Thankfully, filming picked back up and the show began airing again. Season five started on September 30th, 2021.
Your Honor (TBD)
After Breaking Bad, we realized that Bryan Cranston is an amazing actor. Your Honor is another fine example of that. This series is a huge hit already, and it’s only had one season. It’s about a judge who is breaking the law by hiding his son's hit-and-run. The worst part? The son of an organized crime boss died in the incident.
Critics adore it so much that they’re calling the Golden Globes a sham for shutting the series out. The really unfortunate thing is that Your Honor is billed as a “Limited Series,” basically only a couple of seasons at best. Season two was officially confirmed, but filming won't begin until 2022.
Dancing with the Stars (RENEWED)
Dancing With the Stars is taking a bit of a break, and that has people a little on edge. Season 29 ended in November, but the show has been officially renewed for another season. The only issue? Well, it can be hard to film a show with such close-quarters contact during a pandemic. Don’t worry though!
Despite the fact the last season had an 8% drop in viewership (according to Parade), there will be another season of your favorite dancing competition! Season 30 just began on September 30th, 2021. Dancing with the Stars is also considering swapping to one season per year like many of the other similar shows on the network.
The Neighborhood (RENEWED)
The Neighborhood’s debut in 2018 showed it was a strong contender. The sitcom followed Dave Johnson and his family as they arrive from Michigan to a large city – Pasadena, California. Talk about a big change! CBS decided to follow the series and see where it went. It officially renewed the series.
So far, the series has kept strong ratings (even when one of the seasons was cut short). Season four began on September 20th, 2021. Currently, there's no news about whether or not it'll be renewed for a fifth season, but we'll keep our eye out. With how binge-worthy it is, it'll probably get a solid renewal.
American Idol (RENEWED)
Reviews about the 18th season of American Idol may have been mixed, but it returned for a 19th season anyway. This is one of those shows that will continue for ages. However, because of the pandemic, people weren't sure how the season would go forward. Can you judge this kind of stuff virtually?
Nah! Everything went forward like usual, albeit with the judges a little further away from the singers to maintain a good distance and keep everyone safe! We've already seen some great talent coming through, and this may be the best season yet. Season 20 will be debuting coming up on Sunday, February 13, 2022.
Emily in Paris (RENEWED)
Emily in Paris is about a girl who landed her dream job in her dream city – a marketing exec in Paris. The series stars Lily Collins, who is a pretty good actor by all accounts. However, this rom-com has had quite a bit of hate in the short time it’s actually been going.
Bustle stated the hate is because the show is too unrealistic to be real, but other viewers say “that’s the point!” It’s all about escapism, apparently. Whether you love it or hate it, the series will be returning for its second season come December 22, 2021.
The Queen’s Gambit (ENDING)
The Queen’s Gambit may have fallen to the wayside thanks to Bridgerton, but it was still insanely popular. It even won two Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean a second season will come along. When it came out, The Queen’s Gambit was listed as a “Limited Series.” In short, this means that it will only last for one or two seasons at best.
According to the lead actress, they “never thought” about a second season. That being said, she said she really enjoyed working with the team, and it would be great for them to come back together again. That sounds like a one-and-done to us, folks! I wouldn’t expect a second season.
Big Mouth (RENEWED)
If you haven't watched Big Mouth, you're seriously missing out. This Netflix original is made by the top comedians in the biz including Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett. It's about a boy going through puberty...with a few twists and turns to say the least.
Big Mouth is one of the best on Netflix, so the streaming service isn't going to let it go. Season five was just released on November 5th, 2021, but season six is already confirmed. The only thing we need now is the official release date. Being that it's a cartoon, it likely won't be until Fall 2022.
Grey’s Anatomy (RENEWED)
Most of the original cast is gone, but that hasn't stopped Grey's Anatomy. Ratings are beginning to drop, and there have been talks about whether or not it's time to give Grey's Anatomy the conclusion it deserves. Since no one is sure whether or not the show will be renewed, writers are working on a little planning.
The renewal came pretty late, which had fans shaking a little, worried their show would get the ax. Thankfully, they got everything they needed to hear...well, save for a release date. Season 19 is well on its way, and experts suggest that the show will return sometime in Fall 2021 or Spring 2022.
Every series HBO comes out with is at the bare minimum “really good,” but Euphoria? It’s one of the best ones they’ve ever come out with. The show is a coming-of-age series but in a very modern way. Rue is a drug addict who is just trying to make it through life and high school.
The cast is amazing and features Zendaya as Rue. The first season blew up, with massive critical acclaim. It felt like forever before season two was confirmed, and filming started late due to COVID-19. It began in early 2021, so we won’t see the new episodes until late 2021 or early 2022. Sorry, folks!
The Walking Dead (ENDING)
Would you believe us if we told you that The Walking Dead has been on TV since 2010? That means it’s been on TV for a whopping 11 years! That’s something to be proud of (even if the ratings have been steadily dropping for years). Somehow, it kept getting renewed, but it’s finally coming to an end.
Season 10 premiered on October 6th. Even though ratings continue to crumble, it's still one of the top shows on cable TV. It became official in 2020 that season 11 will be the last one. It will likely premiere in 2020, although it will be tough to film with the pandemic going on.
Ted Lasso (ENDING)
If you loved Scrubs, chances are Ted Lasso is right up your alley. It starred Jason Sudekis and was developed by Bill Lawrence. It was based on a series of characters from NBC Sports’ coverage of The Premiere League. The series got good ratings and critical acclaim, but the only issue? The streaming platform it was on.
Apple has been desperately trying to start up their streaming service, but they haven’t really gained a true audience. Ted Lasso lasted a total of two seasons. The second will be longer than the first and is set to debut a little later this year. The big wigs say that the series is over, but if people flock to it – who knows?
The Crown (RENEWED + ENDING)
The hit royal show, The Crown, was renewed by Netflix for seasons four and five, but sadly, that's where it will end. Showrunner Peter Morgan opened up to The Daily Mail about the decision to wrap it up a bit earlier than originally planned: "You can’t fully examine incidents that happened yesterday.”
He went on to say that “there has to be 10 to 20 years’ distance. And in some instances, much longer." Filming has already begun, and we've been given a release date for the fifth season. You can catch the newest season of The Crown in November 2022, likely around the middle of the month if history of the show has told us anything.
The Mandalorian (RENEWED)
The Mandalorian was a clear hit from the beginning. It was Disney+’s flagship series – the one that got everyone to sign up! Nothing made people click “subscribe” faster than baby yoda! However, fans began to worry when several spin-offs were announced, thinking Disney was abandoning The Mandalorian.
There’s no way! The Mandalorian is definitely coming back for season three. Currently, there isn’t a release date, but it’s certainly coming. Shooting started in early April 2021, so it’ll be 2022 before we get any new episodes. Disney+ is also debuting a series called The Book of Boba Fett in December 2021. The streaming service has made it clear it won't release season three of The Mandalorian until after The Book of Boba Fett debuts.
The Goldbergs (RENEWED)
The Goldbergs is one of ABC's top shows. It's set in the '80s and is about a geeky 11-year-old, Adam, and his crazy family life. It doesn't sound like much, but it's really funny. That being said, this season is a little sadder than usual, and we'll explain why.
As season 8 came to an end, it was announced that the show would be continuing for an additional 9th season, but we quickly received the news that George Segal passed away. Pop will be remembered, and the next season will surely be dedicated to him. The series has stated that it won’t recast him out of respect for the actor. Season 9 began on September 22, 2021.
Stranger Things (RENEWED)
The third season (released on July 4th) of Stranger Things was absolutely crazy. The show is doing so well, so Netflix won't let it go any time soon. Season 4's renewal was announced back in September 2019 AND the series creators and showrunners, The Duffer Brothers, signed a multi-year film and series overall deal with the streaming giant.
We don't have a release date for season four (and it’s honestly felt like forever since we’ve seen season three), but with the current virus situation and all the other shortage issues, production has been delayed. Regardless, we hope to see it soon to figure out what's going on! Netflix has stated that season four will be coming out "mid-2022," which likely means around the summer.
How to Get Away with Murder (ENDING)
How To Get Away With Murder is another Shondaland drama that got a lot of attention and for good reason. This one follows an attorney and a few law students as they...well, help people get away with murder. They get themselves into some deep doo-doo, and they find themselves in an odd predicament.
The series was renewed for a sixth season, which premiered on September 25th. For those who adore the show, they may be a little upset to learn that this will be the show's finale. It’s certainly been a wild ride, but all good things must come to an end. The good news is that you may be able to stream the whole thing soon!
The Boys (RENEWED)
The Boys comes from the hilarious mind of Eric Kripke, the same guy who did Supernatural. Of course, everyone knew that the show would end up being fantastic. The first season blew everyone away, and the second kept us glued to our screens. However, there’s been no news about a third?
Don’t worry! It’s renewed! They’ve been doing costume fittings for a new character – Soldier Boy. The funny part? The character is played by Jensen Ackles, who is none other than Dean Winchester from Kripke’s other series. The third season will be coming out sometime next year, so keep an eye out!
It seems like now is the perfect time to have an emergency services TV show, whether police, firefighters, or another first responder. This one was set for success the moment they cast Angela Bassett, but I'm a little biased there. Thanks to the phenomenal acting, 9-1-1 has had four seasons!
Even better, 9-1-1 was recently renewed for a fifth season! Angela Bassett excitedly tweeted the renewal, and we were all waiting for the new season. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long. The newest episodes started on September 20th, 2021. 9-1-1 also teased the fact there could be a crossover coming up soon, so keep your eyes out!
Modern Family (ENDING)
Modern Family was destined to do well, especially since Christopher Lloyd was one of the writers. The series is about a literal modern family in every sense of the word. It’s got some belly-rolling laughs and some emotional scenes that will hit the heart. It’s a wonder that the series has lasted as long as it has.
Fans were a little sad to hear that Modern Family would be entering its 11th and final season, but it was time. The finale aired back in April 2020, before COVID-19 had a chance to shut down studios. Honestly, has someone that’s been watching it for a while, it was pretty hard to say goodbye.
The Handmaids Tale (RENEWED)
The Handmaid’s Tale quickly became one of Hulu's most popular original shows, especially considering the content relates so closely to what’s going on in the world around us. It's no surprise that it was renewed for a fifth season, which was announced on lead actress Moss's Instagram in December 2020.
Season four began on April 28th. There's no release date for the fifth season, but it's certainly coming. Like the previous seasons, it will likely release one or two episodes immediately. Sadly, that means for us bingers, we won't be able to watch the full thing until the very end. Or, if you can't help yourself, just watch them as they come out!
A Million Little Things (RENEWED)
A Million Little Things is about a group of friends that bonded over unexpected circumstances. They're all at different points in their lives, but after one of them dies, they get a clear message: really start living your life. The series did well enough at ABC for the network to renew it for a fourth season!
The fourth season officially began on September 22nd, 2021. Because the current season is still going, we haven't gotten any information about the next season -- season five. As long as ratings stay up, however, a fifth season is certainly written in the stars. For now, just enjoy the new episodes!
Madam Secretary (ENDING)
The show was previously called Madam Secretary, but it changed to Madam President for its sixth and final season. After the suspicious death of her predecessor, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord becomes president after the public rallies behind her. It was created by Barbara Hall with Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary as executive producers.
The final season, season six, premiered on October 6th, 2019. Now that the full series is over, you can catch the full thing streaming. It’s won tons of awards, so it’s definitely worth a shot. Right now, it’s on Netflix, but there’s no telling when they’ll remove it. Catch it while you can!
Fear the Walking Dead (RENEWED)
Even though The Walking Dead came to a conclusion, the spin-offs are doing well (with more in the making). One of those is Fear the Walking Dead. This epic zombie show began its seventh season on October 17th. On top of that, it’s been renewed for an eighth season via Twitter.
No one is sure how much longer Fear the Walking Dead will remain on air since the main show came to an end. Maybe this means the writers have more time to spend on this spin-off, and it could also mean we’ll get a few cameos (or perhaps regular appearances) from characters we know and love from the OG Walking Dead.
Shark Tank (RENEWED)
Shark Tank will go on as long as people watch it, and the ratings are there. There’s certainly no end of crazy products out there! Okay, okay. Some of the stuff is actually pretty good – we’re not going to lie. We’ve bought some of the stuff that’s hit the market.
Shark Tank was renewed for a 13th season despite viewership being down. Almost as soon as Shark Tank got the green light, execs and showrunners started to search for a cast and potential new products to wow the investors. Hopefully, this season can give a little oomph to the series. Season 13 began on October 8, 2021.
Empire was about Lucious Lyon, who is a hip-hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment. The series was actually rated pretty highly, and people really enjoyed it. It isn’t such a big surprise that the show won a Golden Globe! The cast as star-studded, but that’s exactly where it went wrong.
Empire starred an actor named Jussie Smollett. Smollett reported that he was assaulted, and a manhunt began, looking for the individuals he described. The problem? It was all a lie. After all this drama, network execs decided to end Empire. The sixth and final season debuted on September 24th.
American Housewife (CANCELED)
American Housewife is a series about Katie Otto, a wife and mother. She tries to maintain her sense of self and family while dealing with the other pretentious, arrogant housewives that live in her neighborhood. The series has pretty good critics and fan reviews, but it sadly doesn’t get a lot of attention.
The strange thing is that it's among one of ABC's top sitcoms. It currently has seven total sitcoms, and American Housewife ranks third. -- only trailing behind The Conners and The Goldbergs. Regardless of the stats, we won't see the sixth season for this show.
Hell’s Kitchen (RENEWED)
Hell’s Kitchen is vulgar but super enjoyable to watch. Gordon Ramsey definitely knows how to light a fire under his chef’s butts! Naturally, people tune in every week, and Fox is more than happy to keep renewing the series. Not only was Hell’s Kitchen renewed for a 20th season but also, a 21st season!
That’s fantastic news! The 20th just wrapped up, and it was certainly a doozy of a season with lots of yelling -- what else should we have expected? Because the newest season just ended, we won't see the newer seasons until next year (2022). The release date is TBD, however.
Chicago Fire, Med, P.D. (RENEWED)
Chicago Fire, Med, and P.D. have all been renewed. That means it’s party time! This is one of the top series on NBC, and fans are just gobbling each of them up. Chicago Fire was renewed for a 10th and 11th season, Chicago Med will get a 7th season, and Chicago P.D. will head into its nineth.
All three have a history of debuting one after the other, with the start date to be September 22nd, 2021. Other spin-offs have been attempted, but they don’t have the same flare (or actors). If you want to watch all of the Chicago series, you can catch them on Peacock.
The Expanse (ENDING)
The Expanse is an extremely popular show, and the fans are happy to let everyone know about it. Why do we say that? Well, it was nearly permanently canceled by SyFy, but they didn’t sit quietly and let The Expanse end without a finale – not since other streaming networks pick up shows for a finale.
The fans managed to get Amazon to pick up The Expanse for a fifth and sixth season! The only caveat is that the sixth season will be the series finale. It will have a total of 10 episodes and will begin airing on December 10th. It’s fewer than the previous seasons, but at least the show has an ending!
Fresh Off the Boat (ENDING)
Fresh Off the Boat is a breath of fresh air. It’s a series about a group of immigrants trying to make it in America. The show was moved to Friday nights, which is considered the kiss of death, but that didn’t matter. It remained strong for a sixth season, but then the bad news came.
Fresh Off the Boat got a cancellation notice. To give it an ending, the series had a two-part finale on February 21st. It made TV history for being the longest-running comedy with an Asian American-led cast. It may not be on TV anymore, but it’ll certainly go down in history.
The Big Bang Theory (ENDING)
As much as you want the series to keep going, don’t expect The Big Bang Theory to continue past 12 seasons. Many people speculate that Jim Parsons is the reason as he requested an exit to pursue other things. There’s no shame there, especially since the series has been going on since 2007 – that’s over a decade!
Since The Big Bang Theory wouldn’t be the same without his character, the series will see its close with the 12th and final season. The finale aired May 16. Instead, you can catch Young Sheldon, which is a spin-off of Jim Parson’s character. It’s about his life as he grows up. It certainly should be awesome!
All Real Housewives (MOSTLY RENEWED)
If you’re a fan of The Real Housewives, then we have good news! Bravo has renewed Real Housewives of Atlanta, Beverly Hills, New Jersey, New York City, Orange County, and Potomac. Okay, that wasn’t actually that much of a surprise since it’s one of the biggest shows on the entire network. The only series on hold is The Real Housewives of Dallas.
The release date for Atlanta and Beverly Hills is May 2022. Then we have the release date of New Jersey as February 2022, NYC mid to lave 2022, Orange County was December 1st, 2021 (with major cast shakeups to come), and Potomac currently TBD. As for Dallas, there's no news whether or not it'll come back at all.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (ENDING)
After being saved by NBC, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been given the opportunity to really thrive. And honestly? It's better than ever. It's even been renewed through season eight. The saddest part is that the series will be concluding with a shortened eighth season. Samberg stated they had to take a step back because, "how you make a comedy show about police right now."
Producer Dan Goor stated, "ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honor the characters, the story and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed it’s ending so soon, but honestly, I’m grateful it lasted this long. Title of my sex tape." We're excited, saddened, and completely understand all the statements. The final episodes aired beginning on April 12th, 2021.
The Flash (RENEWED)
The Flash was renewed for an eighth season, but it isn't going to be returning at the same time. It had to be pushed back a little bit and currently has a release date of November 16th, 2021.
Eric Wallace, who has been an executive producer of the show since season four, will be replacing Todd Helbing as showrunner going forward. Thankfully, it still remained a great show. With the eighth season beginning, we wait to see what will happen.
Bob’s Burgers (RENEWED)
Bob’s Burgers was renewed for a 12th season by Fox. The show took over Brooklyn Nine-Nine's spot to give it "a better chance," according to Fox execs. That turned out to be a pretty big mistake, but whatever. Bob's Burgers is a pretty good show, so no shade.
The show may sound a little different since voice actors had to record their parts from home. However, it'll still be the same stuff fans have grown to love. New episodes began airing on September 26th, 2021. Bob's was also renewed for a 13th season, which has a TBD release date.
Survivor is another one of those shows that have been on forever. Season 41 has been on hold due to COVID-19, but we finally got new episodes! Our favorite reality TV show debuted new episodes on September 22, 2021!
On top of that, we can expect season 42 sooner than ever. They filmed the next season super fast, and we already have a release date! Mark your calendars for the newest season starting on March 9th, 2022! It's clear that Survivor isn't messing around now.
The $100,000 Pyramid (TBD)
The $100,000 Pyramid is apparently doing well as it was renewed for a fifth season, but season six? Well, that's still up in the air. Filming was shut down in 2020 but was picked back up to be aired the following year, but everything has gone back to normal in Hollywood -- at least for the most part!
The newest season of The $100,000 Pyramid just began in late May (May 26th, to be exact). Like the previous seasons, celebs are making guest appearances including Rosie O'Donnell, Ralph Macchio, and many others.
Black-ish was the latest TV show that got the ax by ABC. The comedy has been given one last season to wrap everything up. It was definitely a huge blow, but the showrunners aren't taking the decision lightly. They're committed to giving us the end the show and fans deserve.
The eighth and final season was announced in May, with the creator, Kenya Barris, writing, "to ALL the people in the world I love, honor, respect, and care for it is both exciting and bittersweet to share that black-ish has been RENEWED by ABC for it's EIGHTH... and FINAL SEASON." The final season is set to debut on January 4, 2022.
The Blacklist (RENEWED)
The Blacklist will return to NBC for the ninth season. There's one caveat, though. Megan Boone, one of the biggest characters in the show, won't be coming back with the show. She plays FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen, so her absence will certainly be felt. That being said, it isn't like the show couldn't continue without her.
The newest episodes began on October 21, 2021, so you may have some catching up to do! Considering some of the other stars are thinking about exiting, we're not sure how much longer the show can go on. Guess we'll find out whether there will be a 10th season or not fairly soon.
Narcos: Mexico (CANCELED)
Narcos: Mexico was a bit of a surprise success -- at least to fans. The original Narcos captivated audiences, but we weren't sure a spin-off could have the same vibe as the original about Pablo Escobar. After all, he was pretty unique. That being said, Narcos: Mexico is going great. Season three just released on November 5th, 2021, and audiences are glued to their screens.
The sad part? Narcos: Mexico is over with. There won't be a fourth season. One of the creators had a part in it and said, "I saw this season as an origin story of the modern world we live in. For me, it felt like bringing the show up to that spot where we now recognize, for better or worse, made sense as a place to stop it." That's something we can respect.
America’s Funniest Home Videos (RENEWED)
America’s Funniest Home Videos was renewed simultaneously for a 31st and 32nd season. That's good news for a show! Season 32 began on October 3rd, 2021, and will show through March.
The show will always be super popular, so it isn't going anywhere. It hasn't been officially renewed for an additional season, but we'd be floored if it wasn't. People love watching the pranks, cute animals, and funny kiddos!
Lucifer was set to be canceled but was picked up by Netflix to give the show a finale, with season five being the last. After everyone was sure the show was over, Netflix made a new deal with the showrunners to have a sixth season.
The deal became official at the end of February 2021, but it was still tears all around. Lucifer has certainly had more chances than most, and the cast and crew will make the finale amazing. The final episodes began airing on September 10, 2021.
The Simpsons (RENEWED)
Of course, The Simpsons was renewed. Season 33 officially began on September 26th, 2021. Naturally, the series was renewed for a 34th season. As long as there's TV, The Simpsons will still air.
Actually, it was renewed simultaneously for a 33rd and 34th season. The Simpsons will likely be the longest-lasting series on Earth. The next episodes will likely air around the same time from Fall 2022 - Spring 2023.
Legends of Tomorrow (RENEWED)
Legends of Tomorrow has been renewed for a seventh season. The previous season was held back, but everything should be back on schedule now as Hollywood gets everything back to normal!
The good news about that is that we didn't have to wait extra long to see the next season. The newest episodes for season seven began on October 13th, 2021. That's certainly pretty fast, which left us worried, but hopefully, the season will be better than ever.
Viewership may be dropping, but S.W.A.T will keep returning. After the fourth season, we expected the announcement of a series finale, but nope. Surprisingly, the show got a fifth season renewal, which started on October 1st, 2021.
What may have helped the show is that they never actually shut down from COVID restrictions. They kept filming, so they were one of the few shows that actually had new episodes! So far, there isn't any news on a sixth season. It all depends on how this one does.
CBS loved Mom while it lasted. It renewed seasons seven and eight at the same time, but that was it. The network has officially announced that eight will be the end.
The conclusion is coming from Anna Faris leaving. She wants to start working on other projects and opportunities. No shame in that! You get yours, girl. New episodes began airing on November 5, 2020 and ended on May 13, 2021
American Ninja Warrior (RENEWED)
NBC is bringing back the popular American Ninja Warrior for season 13. Season 12 wrapped up at the end of 2020, and there wasn't much news. However, fans got excited when they noticed casting starting for season 13. The episodes began airing on May 31, 2021, and we got more episodes than usual!
This time, there were a total of 12 episodes to soak up each warrior's awesomeness. The show is doing really well, and people still watch in droves. American Ninja Warrior was renewed for a 13th season which is set to debut in 2022, but there's no official day yet.
This one is kind of a surprise to us. Riverdale has been...weird lately. The seasons are devolving into something completely different from their original subject matter. There have been tons of complaints, but it appears to be falling through the cracks. You'd think network execs would be concerned.
Regardless, it's back for a sixth season. Viewership is steadily dropping and it's hard to find anyone that still watches the show like they used to. It was officially renewed in February, and the release date was announced for Tuesday, November 16th, 2021. It can't go on much longer like this...
The new Charmed reboot may be receiving mixed reviews, but that doesn't mean it isn't doing well! CW keeps renewing it, so fans are celebrating.
Just two episodes into season three, Charmed was renewed for a fourth season. The only caveat is that it won't return for its normal October time slot. Instead, it'll be premiering in March 2022.
Surprisingly, The CW's soapy new show, Dynasty, was renewed for a fifth season despite being down in viewership. It felt like forever before the fourth season debuted, but the new episodes finally began on May 7. Now, we're finally getting a release date for the fifth season.
Everything got pushed back, but the CW isn't waiting to renew shows. Dynasty returns to the CW starting on December 20th, 2021. This may be the series' last season unless viewership picks up.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (ENDING)
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina came in with a bang. It was one of the most popular shows on Netflix, but that apparently didn't last too long. Just two years after the premiere, it's coming to an end.
The show definitely hit a dead-end. Even worse? The series finale left fans wanting, claiming that the show deserved better. From a Game of Thrones fan, c'est la vie.
Haunting of Hill House/Bly Manor (TBD)
The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor were easily two of the best series on Netflix. The show uses the same actors but tells various thrilling tales from literature. Naturally, Netflix doesn't want to let this anthology go, but it's not exactly easy to pick which ghost story you want to do next.
Netflix would gladly make a third season, but the showrunners have the show on hold while they try and figure out their next move. In the meantime, they released another series unrelated to this anthology called Midnight Mass. Now that fans have had time to fully digest Midnight Mass, maybe we'll get an update on Hill House/Bly Manor...please?
Bull was renewed for a sixth season, which began on October 7th, 2021. The show seems to be getting on fine following Michael Weatherly’s legal issues. Unfortunately, Bull also lost Spielberg's ties with the show, so fans were a little worried that season five may be the final one.
Well, season seven is currently on hold now. CBS hasn't officially stated whether or not the show will be coming back, and that doesn't spell good news for any series. This last season may well be the last we'll see of Bull.
Law & Order: SVU (RENEWED)
As long as the showrunners, actors, and actresses are still around, Law & Order: SVU will be around. The series recently made history when it was renewed for a 21st season, but it's long passing that benchmark and heading toward making new history.
Season 23 of Law & Order: SVU was officially ordered on February 27th, and episodes began debuting on September 23rd, 2021. This season broke another record, too! It now has 500 episodes! Wow, that's a lot. Of course, it's also getting a 24th season, and we'll keep an eye out for the release date.
The CW isn’t letting go of Legacies! It was renewed for a fourth season before the third one even wrapped up! Naturally, fans are ecstatic. Season three new episodes began airing in January, but there's even more good news.
It's one of the best series on CW, so it won't be going anywhere unless the showrunners, actors, and actresses choose to conclude it. The newest episodes began airing earlier than expected on October 14, 2021.
Magnum P.I. (RENEWED)
Lethal Weapon may not have lasted long, but Magnum P.I. was renewed. CBS wants more, and they got what they wanted. New episodes for season three of Magnum P.I. began on December 4th and will continue through March.
Season four has already been ordered, but there hasn't been a release date. The series renewal was just announced in April 2021, so it's been recent-ish. We'll know more when they start filming.
The Orville (RENEWED)
The Orville was ditched by Fox, but Hulu immediately picked it up. The good news is that Hulu doesn't want to let it go, and the streaming service got exactly what they wanted -- another season!
Can you believe that it's been a total of 24 months since the season two finale? Oof. At least we can tell everyone that new episodes for season three will hit screens starting on March 10, 2022. Mark your calendars and set a reminder!
The Rookie (RENEWED)
Nathan Fillion is a fan favorite, so everyone was psyched that there was a fourth season of The Rookie. What was even better was that we got a new season starting earlier than usual. The fourth season began on September 26, 2021!
Who can resist Nathan Fillion's charm and comedy? Right now, the show hasn't been officially renewed or canceled for a fifth season, but as long as things keep going at this pace, we may see another set of episodes.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? (RENEWED)
We've all been waiting for the newest season of Whose Line Is It Anyway? This listing was TBD for the longest time, but we're happy to announce the start date has begun! There's also a ton of new episodes coming, so that's fantastic news for those who love improv.
Season 18 of Whose Line began on October 9, 2021. Since the newest season just started, we won't get an official renewal or cancellation until 2022, but we're guessing it's getting a 19th season.
