Cancellations & Renewals Reactions

Now that the fates of the shows of the 2015/2016 season have (mostly) been decided, our editors took a minute to reflect on what the networks got right—and what they got wrong.

 

Alex's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    The Good Wife The Good Wife

    The storylines have already started getting repetitive, and there's just no point in moving on without Kalinda!




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Silicon Valley Silicon Valley

    The cutthroat world of tech provides endless funnies.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Togetherness Togetherness

    Some complained that this show was too slow, but the character dynamics and relationships were real AF.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce

    THREE MORE SEASONS? I prefer my Bravo series unscripted, thanks!

 

Mony's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Truth Be Told Truth Be Told

    Truth be told, this show tried too hard to be funny and edgy. It couldn't be saved by the bell.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The Flash The Flash

    One of the best shows on the CW. Now if they'd only fix the snoozefest that is DC's Legends of Tomorrow.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Million Dollar Listing SF Million Dollar Listing SF

    Not the best MDL, but was nice to see local property porn. But hey, maybe I'll still see Andrew at SoulCycle!




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Quantico Quantico

    It just gets more ridiculous as it progresses and the writing/acting is like something you'd see in a high school production.

 

Morgaine's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Kocktails with Khloe Kocktails with Khloe

    There's already too much of this family on TV.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Jane the Virgin Jane the Virgin

    Watching this show is like eating candy. It's so good! Not sure how much longer they can keep Jane a virgin, though.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Of Kings and Prophets Of Kings and Prophets

    When are we going to get a good ancient Egypt show???




  • Sad to see renewed:

    It's Always Sunny It's Always Sunny

    I love this show, but it's definitely past its prime... I think it's time to see this one off into the sunset.

 

Rachel's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Angel From Hell Angel From Hell

    Jane Lynch deserved better than this junk.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Scrotal Recall Scrotal Recall

    Questionable title, charming series. Glad Netflix is bringing this one back for another season.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    The Soup The Soup

    Sorry Kardashians, but The Soup was the only thing that was ever worth watching on E! Friday nights just haven't been the same.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce

    This show had a mildly enjoyable first season and a mildly grating second season. Three additional seasons seems like a terrible idea.

 

T.J.'s Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Mike & Molly Mike & Molly

    This always felt like a stray dog Melissa McCarthy left food for every once in awhile. Six seasons in, everyone has their syndication money. Peace!




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    The major networks take such few risks and truly support even fewer of them, so a second season of this dramedy/musical hybrid from Rachel Bloom is a gift.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Telenovela Telenovela

    It's not official, but it's likely. Eva Longoria is smart and funny, but sadly, this show was not. Despite a clever concept, the laughs were few and far between.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    The Bachelor The Bachelor

    Sorry, but the best thing that can be said for this show is that it provides excellent material for SNL's Cecily Strong.

 

Zaz's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Wicked City Wicked City

    I love the '80s and serial killers and I'm even down with Los Angeles, but this show was just twisted and joyless. It made me feel dirty, and not in a good way.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Lucifer Lucifer

    I just can't help it... I adore (this charming, Tom Ellis version of) Satan!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Second Chance Second Chance

    OK, it was definitely cheesy as all get out, but for whatever reason, I fell in like with this show pretty hard and I'm going to miss it (if it's officially axed).




  • Sad to see renewed:

    The Walking Dead The Walking Dead

    I know, I know, but... I just don't know how much more I can take. How many times can a show disappoint you and jerk you around? Sigh.

 

Alex Elias's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Finding Carter Finding Carter

    This was a good show with strong character writing, but it got really repetitive and nothing ever really happened. Gave up on it, and a few weeks later it was canceled.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Elementary Elementary

    The ratings were dangerously low for a time, so I was scared it would meet an untimely end. Fortunately, brilliant writing prevailed and the ratings went way up.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Person of Interest Person of Interest

    As one of my favorite series of all time, I was devastated when CBS announced It wouldn't air 'til late this year. So you can imagine the depth of my anguish when they announced it would be the last season.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Bones Bones

    How is it even possible this is still on? Give new screenwriters a chance. Get rid of that decaying relic. Not saying shows can't be on for a long time, but bad shows should not live that long. At least it will be the final season.

 

Audrey's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Kevin From Work Kevin From Work

    It was a cute premise and sometimes its quirky comedy hit the mark, but for the most part this show fell flat.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    The 100 The 100

    This season has been a bit shaky, but The 100 definitely has more stories to tell. I'm glad it'll get a chance!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    Girls Girls

    This season of Girls has hit the nail directly on the head and reminded me why the show was great in the first place. Hopefully the next (and final) season will end on a high note!




  • Sad to see renewed:

    The Shannara Chronicles The Shannara Chronicles

    I couldn't even get through the first few episodes. It just felt too derivative of every other fantasy show out there. I would've liked to see something more original in its place.

 

Davis's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Unforgettable Unforgettable

    Ironically, it's pretty forgettable.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Game of Thrones Game of Thrones

    I'll never not be happy to see this get renewed.




  • Sad to see canceled:

    The Fall The Fall

    We're getting an ending at just the right time, but it still sucks.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    Fear the Walking Dead Fear the Walking Dead

    I fear that this spinoff will never live up to its true potential.

 

Jerrica's Reactions:




  • Glad to see canceled:

    Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris

    I love NPH, but this was an unwatchable hot mess.




  • Glad to see renewed:

    Vikings Vikings

    Woo! This keeps getting better and better. Rise of Rollo and possible replacement of King Ragnar?! Shivers!




  • Sad to see canceled:

    The Bastard Executioner The Bastard Executioner

    It was Banshee meets Vikings; I was obsessed with the love affair between con man and queen. I’ll be looking out for Kurt Sutter’s next creation.




  • Sad to see renewed:

    The Vampire Diaries The Vampire Diaries

    I hate to admit it, but these guys are losing me. The spiral started when the love triangle ended and now it's circling the drain.
