Cancellation Watch Breaking News: The First Cancelled by Hulu after One Season

Hulu’s The First will not see a second, season that is.  Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the streaming service has elected not to bring the space exploration show back for another year.  The streamer picked that one up directly to series with Sean Penn headlining the cast, and likely hoped it would become another must-watch entry along the… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: Syfy Cancels Channel Zero After Four Seasons

Coming as no surprise, Syfy confirmed today that its season-long horror anthology series Channel Zero will not be returning for a fifth season. That series debuted in Fall 2016 to passable ratings and was given a renewal through its fourth season. But its numbers have been on a steady decline and the show only averaged a 0.07 rating… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: The Orville Drops in the Rankings

FOX’s space dramedy The Orville took a drop in the rankings this week falling six slots from Number 10 to Number 16. That was expected, though, because its rank last week was skewed by its Sunday night debut numbers which received a boost from NFL football. But since moving to its regular Thursday night timeslot, the show has… Read More »

Cancellation Watch: Rumors Have The Walking Dead and Manifest Both Heading for Renewal

I am seeing renewal claims for two shows making the rounds on the internet, both of which I consider part of the rumor mill at this point, but there is some credibility to them. SpoilerTV has a one line post claiming that AMC has renewed The Walking Dead and TVShowsCancelled.com claims that “insiders” have informed them that NBC… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: Disney Renews Star Wars Resistance for Second Season

The Resistance continues as the Disney Channel has ordered a second season of its Anime Star Wars series. That show has been pulling moderate ratings for the cable channel, but the success of animated series–especially those tied to a major franchise–is gauged more by the revenue from merchandising. The show has also been well-received by fans and critics… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Counterpart Lands at the Bottom of the Rankings

The Cancellation Watch Scorecard is back from its Winter hiatus as the sci fi and fantasy entries on the schedule start to make their returns as well. Because Starz’s Counterpart got off to a late Fall start, I never worked it into the rankings during the first half of the season. But now that the rankings are back,… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: Syfy Cancels Z Nation after Five Seasons

Word broke yesterday that Syfy’s zombie-pocalypse series Z Nation will not be returning for a sixth season. That news comes as somewhat of a surprise considering that lower-rated Van Helsing was just recently renewed by the network. Z Nation has been at a series low point as far as viewership this year, but I was thinking that it… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: NBC Cancels Midnight, Texas after Two Seasons

Coming as no surprise, NBC announced late yesterday that its supernatural drama Midnight, Texas has been cancelled.  That series performed relatively well for a Summer series when its first season debuted back in July 2017.  But the network moved it to the Fall schedule this season and put it on low viewership Friday nights which resulted in a… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Nightflyers Slips Further in the Rankings

Syfy’s new series Nightflyers wrapped up its first season last week (it was airing nightly, Sundays through Thursdays) with slipping ratings, and that caused the show to drop further in the rankings.  It is currently at the Number 21 slot, down from Number 18.  It is ranked one higher than Van Helsing which just got renewed, but Nightlfyers… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: Syfy Renews Van Helsing for Fourth Season

The renewal announcements keep rolling in (Netflix renewed The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina earlier today) as Syfy has decided to bring back its vampire-pocalypse series Van Helsing for a fourth season. That was anything but a sure bet for that show because its ratings have been down over twenty percent from last year. Syfy does not own the… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Breaking News: Netflix Renews The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Through Its Fourth Season

Netflix may be in the process of scrapping its comic book based series from Marvel (more on that at this link), but the streaming service seems quite happy with its Archie entry The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as it has renewed that through a fourth season.
