Fall TV premiere season is upon us, and plenty of new and returning shows will hit the airwaves in the not-too-distant future. There will, however, be some significant holes in the primetime lineup compared to what it looked like this time last year, as a number of key shows got the axe before the end of the 2017-2018 season. While some -- ranging from Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Lucifer to Designated Survivor -- were rescued by other outlets in the wake of their cancellations/series finale, not all were so lucky. Read on for a rundown of some of the most notable shows that are definitely not coming back to TV this fall!

Kevin Can Wait, CBS

When Kevin James' latest sitcom hit the airwaves back in fall 2016, it scored impressive ratings. Starring a comic actor who had anchored a long-running sitcom in the past, featuring big guest stars, and settling into an enjoyable if not exactly revolutionary format, Kevin Can Wait seemed destined for a long run on CBS. Everything changed when news broke at the end of Season 1 that Erinn Hayes' character was being killed off and Kevin James' King of Queen costar Leah Remini would step in as leading lady. Fans did not react well to the news that Donna was going to be unceremoniously killed off-screen, the numbers dropped, and CBS cancelled the show. Kevin should probably stop waiting.

Shades Of Blue, NBC

Shades of Blue brought and kept Jennifer Lopez to the small screen as star as a cop drama. While she also had TV appearances on shows like World of Dance, Shades of Blue showcased her as an actress rather than a TV personality. Co-starring Ray Liotta, it delivered some primetime intensity. The show was cancelled at NBC before the third season actually premiered, so fans who kept up with news could prepare themselves for the upcoming series finale. For her part, Jennifer Lopez has stated that she believes the show was right to end after three season. Ray Liotta, on the other hand, has said that he'd be willing to do another season even without Lopez. Only time will tell if he gets his wish. For now, Shades of Blue is done.
