Is Your Favorite TV Show Coming Back This Fall?

For television fans, May is a time of anxiety, anguish, stress, sourness, wishful thinking, and hopefully relief as they wait for all the big networks: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and The CW to make their choices. What’s coming back? Will your favorite television program fair well or will it have to bid its audience farewell?

Though cable networks and streaming services have disrupted the decades old standard of the September through May television season, the nation's broadcast networks still use that longheld timeframe for much of their programming. 

We’ve put together a list of every show on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and The CW with the network’s current decision. Are they renewed? Are they canceled? Is this a planned conclusion?

This list will be updated as new decisions are made, but as of May 9, 2019, this is the information we have so far. If your favorite show has yet to be placed on the list, make sure to check back throughout the month. In the meantime, enjoy your favorite shows each week!
