Which shows will you see back next season? Which shows got the axe?

2016-17 Small Screen Losers And Winners

TV networks have finally (save a few shows) announced which of their shows will get another season and which won’t. Did your favorite show make the cut? Read on to find out.

(Side note: These lists always make me feel better about my TV watching. Although I watch a lot of TV, the fact that I didn’t know many of these shows even existed tells me I could watch a lot more.)

I’m most sad to see BrainDead and Pitch cancelled—sadly, both shows were too good/too smart for network TV. And I’m very glad to have new seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Speechless, Timeless (phew!), Supergirl, and The 100 (natch) to look forward to.

Did any of your favorite shows get the axe? Which are you excited to see sticking around? Let’s discuss in the comments.

Mandy Curtis's photo About the Author: Mandy is a small town girl living in a nerdy world, or—if you want to get literal—an editor/writer living in Austin, TX. In addition to yearning for YA books—the more dystopian or fantastical, the better—she can also be found swooning over superheroes, dreaming of The Doctor and grinning at GIFs.
