There are so many good shows on TV these days!

In fact, I find myself missing the days when there was nothing to watch — remember them? Nowadays, it feels like there is more than enough television to keep us occupied. Between the tons of original programming on networks like ABC and HBO as well as up-and-coming streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu, there are plenty of choices to be made when it comes to finding a show that's right for you. 

But with so many choices comes so many cancellations, too. It's not easy for a TV show to stay on the air anymore — it's got to build a strong fan base right out of the gate. Shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and The Crown have done so well, they're never really at risk for cancellation (although we still haven't accepted that GoT is soon coming to an end). But what about your other favorite TV shows? The Good Place, Mr. Robot, This Is Us?

Check out all the shows that have been renewed on cable, network and streaming platforms right now. Hopefully your shows made the cut!

4/27 :FX

FX is. Our. Jam. We literally love everything they air — except the most recent season of American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy really effed that one up. Alas, we won't abandon them now.


  • American Horror Story

  • Archer
  • Atlanta
  • Baskets
  • Better Things

5/27 :AMC

Rick, Daryl and Maggie will always be No. 1 in our hearts, but AMC’s got some other kick-ass shows that can almost compete with The Walking Dead. Almost.


  • Better Call Saul (not as good as Breaking Bad, though — then again, who could beat Walter White?)
  • Fear the Walking Dead
  • Halt and Catch Fire
  • Humans
  • Into the Badlands
  • Preacher 
  • The Walking Dead (last but never, ever least)

6 /27: Amazon

6/27 :Amazon

When you compare Amazon to its digital competitor Netflix, it seems like it's stumbled a bit, but there's no denying Amazon is finding a place for itself in the scripted world — especially with Transparent. We only expect bigger and even better things in 2018. 


  • Bosch
  • Mozart in the Jungle
  • Transparent 
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • One Mississippi 
  • The Man in the High Castle

7 /27: CBS

7/27 :CBS

CBS has so many TV shows with cult followings, including The Big Bang Theory, the Criminal Minds franchise and all the NCIS shows, so it’s no surprise they’ve already renewed these big hits. 


  • The Amazing Race
  • The Big Bang Theory (renewed for Season 9 and 10)
  • Blue Bloods
  • Code Black
  • Criminal Minds
  • Elementary

  • Roseanne

9 /27: NBC

9/27 :NBC

NBC doesn't have Shonda Rhimes, but they're not hurtin' for good programming — I mean, they do have Jennifer Lopez, Mariska Hargitay and James Spader. Life is good over at NBC.

  • Blindspot 
  • Chicago Fire 
  • Chicago PD
  • Law & Order: SVU

11/27 :Hulu

Hulu not only lets us rewatch Family Guy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks and Recreation and Arrested Development, but its also got some seriously entertaining original programming. We dig. 


  • Casual 
  • Difficult People 
  • The Handmaid's Tale
  • Harlots
  • The Path (this show is so good... so, so good... and no matter what anyone says, it's totally about Scientology) 

12 /27: STARZ

12/27 :STARZ

There are so many shows I want to watch on Starz. Like, all of them. It’s not the easiest channel to tune into since you have to specially purchase it via your cable provider, but I hear it’s worth it. 


  • The Missing
  • Outlander
  • Power
  • Survivor’s Remorse
  • Ash vs Evil Dead

13 /27: The CW

13/27 :The CW

Our go-to for superheroes, vampires and love triangles, The CW has renewed most of their most beloved shows.

  • Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Rachel Bloom does things... lots of crazy, crazy things)
  • The Flash
  • iZombie

  • Supergirl

14 /27: MTV

14/27 :MTV

MTV, aka music television. Ha-ha, not. MTV has made a name for itself in the 21st century outside of the music world with teen-beloved scripted series (with really hot casts) and controversial reality shows. Here’s what’s coming back — well, scripted series coming back.


  • Teen Wolf

15 /27: Freeform

Image: Freeform

15/27 :Freeform

Aside from people getting ABC Family's new name, Freeform, confused with "free porn" (I hear it's a thing — hilarious!), the channel hosts a slate of boundary-pushing teen dramas. From mixed families to LGBTQ storylines and pretty girls being hunted down by a murderer known as A, Freeform’s always trying to find the next big show. 


  • The Fosters
  • Shadowhunters 
  • Stitchers

16 /27: USA

Image: USA

16/27 :USA

I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain Matt Bomer really shot to fame on the USA show White Collar. So, thank you, USA — thank you for bringing Matt Bomer into our lives and thank you for making Mr. Robot, because we love Christian Slater and Rami Malek too.


  • Colony 
  • Graceland
  • Mr. Robot 
  • Playing House
  • Suits

17 /27: PBS

17/27 :PBS

We typically go to PBS for super-educational documentaries, but they've got a couple of scripted series worth DVRing too.


  • Call the Midwife
  • Grantchester

18 /27: FXX

Image: FXX

18/27 :FXX

As long as Sweet Dee is on FXX, we'll be watching.


  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia 
  • The Strain
  • You’re the Worst

19 /27: BBC America

19/27 :BBC America

Because those British blokes know how to do TV (and acting) right… except, hello — can they give us an update on Doctor Who sometime soon, please? Someone phone the queen. We need an official upate. 


  • Almost Royal
  • Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency 
  • Dr. Who
  • Poldark

20 /27: Comedy Central

  • Another Period
  • Broad City
  • Drunk History
  • Idiotsitter
  • Inside Amy Schumer 
  • Legends of Chamberlain Heights 
  • Nathan for You 
  • South Park (this bad boy has been renewed through 2019, no questions asked)

21 /27: SyFy

Image: SyFy

21/27 :SyFy

The name of the channel pretty much says it all. It’s sci-fi all the time with some seriously creative shows. 


  • 12 Monkeys
  • Dark Matter
  • The Expanse
  • Killjoys
  • Van Helsing
  • Wynonna Earp 
  • Z Nation (zombies, because everyone loves the blood-thirsty freaks)

22 /27: TBS

Good thing these shows got renewed because we have some serious catching up to do... on, like, all of them. 


  • American Dad
  • Angie Tribeca
  • The Detour
  • People of Earth

23 /27: Bravo

Image: Bravo

23/27 :Bravo

Bravo’s still trying to make a name for itself in scripted TV (come on, we all know what we really go to Bravo to watch Real Housewives, wadduppp!), but it’s gotten a pretty good start with these two shows.


  • Odd Mom Out
  • Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce (ends after Season 5!)

24 /27: TNT

Image: TNT

24/27 :TNT

It’s dynamite! Get it, TNT? Dynamite? I didn’t really know what else to say about TNT except... well, here's what's renewed.


  • Animal Kingdom 
  • Claws
  • The Last Ship
  • The Librarians
  • Major Crimes

25 /27: Lifetime

Image: Lifetime

25/27 :Lifetime

We love Fa-La-La-La Lifetime (it's what they used to call their holiday programming — we’ve got the holidays on the brain), but they’ve managed to win some big-time awards with UnReal, their first original series. We’ll give it to them — it plays into our obsession with The Bachelor franchise perfectly. And Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby? Perfection.


  • UnReal

26 /27: TV Land

Image: TV Land

26/27 :TV Land

We never watched TV Land until Younger but now we’re obsessed. At least with Younger. So dramatic, silly and so, so good. 


  • Teachers 
  • Younger 

27 /27: BET

27/27 :BET

Only one show has been renewed so far, but we’ll keep updating this slide as we hear more.


  • Being Mary Jane
