Is your favorite TV show canceled? A guide to what’s renewed and what’s gone for good

🕐 5 min read

So, Fox canceled “The Mindy Project” Wednesday night. (Don’t worry yet, it could be saved by Hulu.) But that’s just a taste of what we’re in for over the next week: It’s that time of year when all the broadcast networks set their fall schedules, and as a result, decide the fates of all their current shows.

This annual event, known as Upfront Week, begins on Sunday when NBC officially finalizes its schedule — it’s followed by Fox, ABC, CBS and CW, wrapping up on Thursday. (This is not about cable. Cable is a completely different world.) But over the next few days, word will start to leak about which shows landed a renewal for another season, and which ones are really, truly dead. Unless, you know, an online provider picks them up … but despite appearances, that’s actually quite rare.

Here’s a guide to what’s renewed, what’s canceled and what’s still in limbo — many decisions have already been made. Below is a list of every broadcast network’s primetime shows, along with its current season count and status.
