ABC has been pretty quiet so far with the cancel/renew news, but now we have some announcements...
Grey's Anatomy has been picked up for two more seasons (Ellen Pompeo is signed through 2021).
How to Get Away with Murder and Station 19 were both picked up for next season.
For the People has been cancelled after 2 seasons. Next Thursday's episode will now be the series finale.
They are really drawing it out! I want o know about The Rookie!
Thanks for keeping us informed.
That is all I care about too.
More news from ABC (including The Rookie)...
The following shows have been renewed:
Dancing with the Stars
Bless this Mess
Fresh Off the Boat
The following shows have been cancelled:
The Kids are Alright
Splitting Up Together
Speechless is an odd cancellation. Almost every show that reaches three full seasons (60+ episodes) gets renewed for a fourth, regardless of ratings, because that's usually when it gets a lucrative syndication deal (based on the fourth season reaching 80+ episodes). And it was owned by the network, so they would get to keep the syndication money. I guess the 50% ratings plunge after the move to Friday was enough to pull the plug on it.
The Kids are Alright is also a bit odd. Season average ratings were on par with fellow newbie Single Parents, which did get picked up. But looking more closely I can see that ratings were falling toward the end of the season. So a weak finish appears to have killed it.
The Fix was a low rated new show, so it was doomed. Splitting Up Together was a borderline renewal last year, and ratings were worse this year, so no surprise it was cancelled.
Yay!!! Thank you for the news!
The Fix is an excellent miniseries. It doesn’t need another season.
I just saw The Rookie is returning. It’s an excellent show!
