The 2013-2014 TV season is wrapping up, leaving us with a few summer runs to look forward to, tears to shed over canceled shows, and cliffhangers to shake our fists at for the next few months. In case you’ve been chasing kids instead of TV schedules, here’s a roundup of statuses on your favorite shows, in alphabetical order.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Renewed, along with a bonus new show, Agent Carter.
Almost Human: Canceled. (Insert your own “almost good enough” joke here.)
Arrow: Renewed. Good thing, given their penchant for cliffhanger endings. We’ll also have the spinoff The Flash.
Beauty and the Beast: Renewed. It’s also getting a “summer season” starting June 2, but this is really just the last of the season 2 episodes.
The Big Bang Theory: Renewed for three more years, which will take it to at least 10 seasons.
Bones: Renewed. This 10th season has been rumored to be the last, but that’s not official.
Community: Canceled, resulting in much sadness on the internet. If that sounds crazy, compare how it was doing to other canceled NBC shows, with 3.8 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. Revolution had 7.3 million viewers and a 2.3 rating. Even Dracula was doing better, with 5 million and a 1.8. In fact, Community was the longest-running of the canceled NBC shows, but at least recently, the worst-performing.
Game of Thrones: Renewed for two more seasons. This season’s premiere at the beginning of April was HBO’s most-watched episode since the finale of The Sopranos seven years ago, so it’s understandable that they want to hang on to this hit, even as the storyline passes what’s available on the page. That just means the battle of Spoilers vs. You Should Have Read The Book will soon come to an end.
Glee: Renewed previously through next year, its sixth and final season. The final season won’t be based in New York and will be set further in the future.
The Goldbergs: Renewed for another season reliving your childhood.
NCIS: Renewed, as well as NCIS: Los Angeles.
Once Upon A Time: Renewed.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Canceled.
Sleepy Hollow: Renewed.
Super Fun Night: Canceled. No more super fun for Rebel Wilson fans. (Although, she was just cast in a Private Benjamin reboot.)
Supernatural: Renewed. Another for the 10-season club.
The Tomorrow People: Canceled. (Now they’re the Yesterday People. Sorry, that was too easy.)
The Vampire Diaries: Renewed.
