2015-16 Television Season Renewals and Cancellations
Television seasons and shows come and go, with some staying on to see another season, and some, sometimes unjustly, don’t see the light of day ever again. During this period of time, fans and viewers alike eagerly wait for news regarding the status of their favorite shows. However, thankfully, television networks appease fans and viewers alike by managing to announce the status of their favorite shows, based on the networks’ decision. Read on to learn more about this story.
Year after year, season after season, there are some shows that continue to stay on the charts, and there some that leave us behind. Sometimes, show cancellations and renewals are often debated upon by critics and viewers alike, especially if a particular show has managed to warm itself into the viewers’ hearts. In line with this, Movie News Guide (MNG) has created a list, that will be updated once more new information comes in, based on reports from the like of TV Line, E Online and Metacritic, on what shows will be seeing another season, and which ones had their lives cut short in this television season.
However, before that, it must be noted that ABC’s “Wicked City,” which starred “Gossip Girl’s” Ed Westwick became the first in the bunch to get cancelled this season on a network. Other notable cancellations include the Canadian cop drama “Rookie Blue,” who enjoyed a five-season run, and Kurt Sutter’s “The Bastard Executioner” on FX.
NBC’s “Blindspot” became the first renewal of the season, followed by the announcement that “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” will be renewed as well for another season.
FOX’s “Scream Queens” debuted to very disappointing ratings but aren’t on anyone’s lists for shows that are in danger.
According to TV Line, some of the notable shows that fans should get worried about are “True Detective”, “Castle”, and “Person of Interest”.
