While some expected cancellations have already occurred and other shows have held on, at least for now, thereís a slew of fall and especially midseason programming out there that probably won't make it through the end-of-season spring cleaning at the networks. Here's our list of shows that will probably get cancelled.
This list features shows that all started out in pretty great places. These shows even found real success, but recently, itís become pretty clear that theyíre moving downward and show no signs of improving. In fact, these drop-offs canít even be directly attributed to increases in DVR. Instead, a tangible percentage of viewers seem to be looking in other places for content.
Looking at buzz, ratings and other outside factors, weíve compiled a list of the shows that are currently in danger of getting canceled. The list may change as the year wears on, but for now, check them out, and let us know if there are any you think are missing.
ABC has released its 2014-2015 lineup. It includes a slight move for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will return for Season 2 this fall, but will air an hour later than usual. Meanwhile, Scandal and Grey's Anatomy have been shifted up on the Thursday night schedule.
While we might have expected renewals for shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Modern Family, the fate of some of ABC's new series was a bit less certain. But word is coming down the pipeline for many of them, and it's good news for Resurrection and The Goldbergs, which join Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among ABC's freshman series that will be back for Season 2 in the 2014-2015 season.
The end is near! Scandal, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Castle and other ABC series' season finales have been scheduled. ABC announced the finale dates today, starting with The Neighbors, which will wrap up its second season in April. The finales that follow include Scandal, Last Man Standing, Resurrection and Once Upon a Time.
ABC has been busy promoting its brand new series, Resurrection, for weeks now, including prominent previews during the Oscarsí commercial breaks. Advertisements for the series have been promising the unveiling of an unbelievable narrative about a few dead people from a small community returning to life.
What works so well about the new teaser for ABCís Resurrection isn't just the gut-wrenching sight of a man who's realizing his deceased son has somehow returned to him. Itís the moments leading up to that, which really drive the emotion home, as they show Kurtwood Smithís character Henry responding his son Jacob, and you can see that for a moment, heís completely forgotten that Jacob died thirty years ago.
ABC has lined up their Midseason premiere schedule, and in addition tot he return of The Bachelor, The Taste and Suburgatory, the network has a number of new series lined up to debut. That includes Killer Women, the new Texas Ranger drama starring Battlestar Galacticaís Tricia Helfer. Also on the line-up are Mind Games, Mixology, Resurrection and The Assets.
In addition to a bevy of potentially great new series headed for ABC this fall, the network also has a few new dramas and comedies on deck for Midseason 2014. Among them, Kyle Killen's Mind Games, starring the underrated Steve Zahn and Christian Slater, who play two brothers who start an agency set up to help solve people's problems. Sounds like a vague description for a line of work, but the trailer above gives us a glimpse of the drama's potential...
