It can be a nerve-wracking thing to fall in love with a TV show so much you love it with all your being and then, you are kept waiting to find out the fate of the show. Will it get renewed? Will it get the ax? The suspense is too much to handle.

But thankfully, for every cancellation (and gosh, those are painful) in this world where good TV shows are a dime a dozen and flooding every channel in Christendom, there are plenty of renewals happening. And that means happier folks like you and me. It's also kind of a relief when you think about it, because some shows deserve renewals, even before their current season has ended; they're just that good.

While it's still very early in 2018, the renewal ball has already gotten rolling, with some shows getting the green light even before their first season has ended. Also, you'll find some shows mentioned that got renewals late in 2017 but will be coming back to delight us in 2018, so you're getting the reminder ahead of time. 

Check out what made the cut in 2018.
