Will we see another season of our favorite show? It’s a question that we have every spring, and many of us wait with bated breath for the results. After all, we get attached to our favorite TV shows. We tune in or catch them on streaming channels soon after the new season debuts. That being said, networks don’t always keep a show, even if it’s doing well! Sometimes, we’re forced to see our favorite series canceled. At that point, other networks and streaming services have the ability to pick it up, but that isn’t always the case. Sometimes, they’re just gone for good.
On this list, we’ve included which TV shows have been renewed, which ones have been canceled, and which ones' futures are currently still up in the air. Several of our favorite shows managed to avoid the ax and get another season. Heck, some of them even got renewed for two more seasons!
Did you know...
- In the summer of 2007, Joh Hamm became a household name when Mad Men premiered to critical acclaim and strong ratings. Just over a year and a half later, Ellie Kemper stole America's hearts (and Dwight's and Andy's) when she became the new receptionist on The Office. Before they were famous, Hamm was Kemper's high school drama teacher!
- While attending the Grammys in February 2000, Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a green Versace dress that instantly became a phenomenon. The barely-there ensemble had a dramatically low cut that came below JLo’s belly button. It became such a talking point that it was Google’s most popular search query up to that point, and it spurred the company to include images into search results. It became the motivation for Google Images.
- Paris Hilton not only lives in a mansion, she also built a doghouse mansion for her Chihuahua. It's 300 square feet and includes air conditioning and heating. It comes decked out with designer furniture, a chandelier, a pink paint job, second-floor balcony, and enclosed "yard." It's not enough for you to live in luxury. Your dog must, as well.
- When Rihanna debuted her famous red locks in 2010 (around the same time she was featured on Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie"), she started a red-hair trend. Over the next twelve months, she changed her hairstyle 13 times—more than once a month! But that came at a pricey cost. Sources say the annual price tag came out to $1,168,000 on just her hair.
- After her role as First Lady came to an end, Jackie Kennedy went into the publishing business. She became an associate editor at Doubleday and worked mostly on autobiographies. In fact, she was one of two original editors for Michael Jackson's 2009 autobiography Moonwalk, a #1 New York Times bestseller.
