It is around May which is the time when the five major television networks—ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and the CW—announce their shows that got renewed, picked up, and canceled. The time has come, and several long-running and popular shows have been axed off the schedule.
Many fans of long-running shows have been left disappointed by the decisions of the networks because of the long lifespan of the shows, the already established fan bases, and the plot questions left unanswered.
But, their opinions do not matter, as networks make the decisions by themselves. Some decisions are due to ratings, while others are due to how long a show has been on the air for. Other considerations include profit and positive reviews.
A handful of shows has been canceled by the major networks, ultimately making room for new shows that will try to captivate and draw in viewers. Whether these new shows will be a success, we will have to see in the coming season. The following are 11 shows that have been canceled.
1. The Catch: Created by producer Shonda Rhimes and airing on ABC, the show has been canceled after only two seasons and a total of 20 episodes.
Coming from showrunner Shonda Rhimes, viewers would expect this show to go on for a lot longer like her series Grey’s Anatomy.
Unfortunately, the series struggled with mediocre ratings from the beginning and fell to new lows in the second season. ABC decided to let it go.
