ABC Reveals Which Shows Received Renewals & Cancellations


As of publish time, all of ABC’s shows learned their fates with exception to Last Man Standing. With regards to the Tim Allen sitcom, does anyone actually care 😉

While some of the renewals were simply a formality like in the cases of Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon A Time and Scandal, the alphabet network served a few surprises by granting certain freshman shows a sophomore run. Find out below if your favorites got the axe or if they live to see another day.

With regards to renewals, Castle, How to Get Away with Murder, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nashville, American Crime, Secrets and Lies, Marvel’s Agent Carter, black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs, The Middle, Modern Family and Galavant all received good news along with the aforementioned above.

On the reality show front, America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, Shark Tank, Beyond the Tank, and 20/20 were also picked up. Sadly, for The Taste, network execs closed down the kitchen.

Other cancellations were Resurrection, Cristela, Revenge and Forever. Among the bunch, I’ll actually miss Forever. It wasn’t fantastic by any means, but it was great to play in the background while I did work.

I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised that Secrets and Lies and Fresh off the Boat got sophomore seasons. Sadly though, the former won’t see the return of Ryan Phillippe. He tweeted that he wouldn’t be returning after the season finale aired.

Are you surprised by any of the renewals? I’m shocked that ABC ordered more Galavant. How about you? Weigh in below about any of the network’s decisions.

  • Darcy John Hallihan

    Love this, Britney Jean is great tho. Work Bitch is one of her best ever.

  • Alan

    Going to miss forever, it was a good show.

  • Wes

    Forever was an enjoyable watch but I have to say Secrets and Lies was the best freshman show! SO glad it was picked up a second season. Especially since Stalker was canceled. SO BUMMED.




    Will not be worth watching without Ryan .

    I’m pleasantly surprised Galavant was renewed. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. Thrilled Nashville was renewed.
