Here in the age of Peak TV, it's almost impossible to keep track of even a small percentage of the endless stream of shows that are coming and going on a weekly basis. Until modern science comes up with a third eyeball that is always able to see what TV's future looks like - or some other absolutely necessary biological advancement - then it's a shade harder to figure out which of your favorite shows have been renewed and which ones have gotten the axe. That's where we come in.
Below, you'll find a fairly exhaustive rundown of the renewal and cancellation status (or lack thereof) for all the biggest shows on cable TV and various streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. To keep things fairly simple, we've categorized them all by genres, and we'll be keeping things updated as news gets announced, so remember to keep looking back every time you're wondering about FX's latest dramas or HBO's docu-series. And when you're done with cable and streaming, don't forget to head to our full rundown on how all the network shows are doing, such as The Big Bang Theory and Scandal.
Horror and Sci-Fi
Television has seemingly never been a more welcome medium for genre programming, with more outlets than ever willing to take on dark and scary narratives and far-scoping science fiction stories. And it's hard to talk shit against horror when AMC's The Walking Dead has been one of TV's biggest successes for years on end. Netflix and HBO made huge waves with Westworld and Stranger Things, but I think we should all give the biggest round of applause to Syfy for how quickly it turned itself back into a storytelling network. The Expanse and Channel Zero should last forever, but scroll down to see where both actually stand.
