Early Renewals and Cancelations In- Which Shows Are Safe and Which Are In Danger?
As we near the end of 2015, many shows are going on their winter hiatus. Shonda Rhimes #TGIT hits “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” had their Winter Finales and will return in February. Whether or not they will make it to he 2016-2017 season has yet to be seen. “The Walking Dead” had its mid-season finale last night and will return next year to complete season six and has already been renewed for season seven so no one can fret about that. E!’s long-running show “The Soup” got the ax and will air its last episode on December 18th. But what new shows that you may have fallen in love with are in danger of cancelation or have already been confirmed as renewals? Remember, just because a show may be canceled by a network does not mean that it won’t find a home on Netflix, like “The Mindy Project” did. According to E!, here is what we know as of now.
- “Wicked City” starring Ed Westwick and Erika Christensen has already been canceled before it really even got a chance. #RIPWickedCity
- “Supergirl” has added an additional seven episodes to make it a complete twenty episodes for its first season.
- “Code Black,” “Life In Pieces” and “Limitless” have been picked up for more episodes in their first season.
- “Law and Order: SVU” will be sticking around for extra episodes this season along with “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Fire.” Both Chicago shows have also been green-lit for another season.
- “Blindspot” has already been renewed for a second season in the middle of its first season.
- “Blood and Oil,” “Scream Queens” and “Minority Report” are still up in the air. I believe that “Scream Queens” will get another season.
There are a handful of new series that have still yet to premiere and they could either get additional episodes or be canned. As you may remember, twenty-three episodes was the best number you could have for a series. Now, E! is saying that eighteen is the key number you want to hit. Most shows start out with a thirteen episode order but now, with some falling numbers, the episode order is ten, like with “Minority Report,” the spin-off of the Tom Cruise film. When will people learn that movies do not always translate into television like “Dirty Dancing” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Oh and “Working Girl.” Meant for the big screen. Any shows that you are eager to see stick around? Any that you are totally over? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @haveuheard1.
