All the TV shows that have been canceled recently

Netflix

A slew of TV shows were canceled in 2017, and the list of shows canceled in 2018 has grown rapidly since May as networks decide their schedules of new and returning shows, and figure out what they’re doing in 2019.

The most recent cancelation comes from CBS, which canceled summer series “Salvation” after two seasons.

Despite slightly better reception for its second season that dropped in September, Netflix has canceled “Iron Fist” after two seasons, a show that wasn’t a hit with critics. Days later, Netflix canceled Marvel’s “Luke Cage,” leaving many wondering why these seemingly successful superhero shows are getting the axe. And the week after that it, canceled satire series “American Vandal.”

So far in 2018, networks have canceled fan favourites like “The Last Man on Earth” and “Quantico.” Fox also canceled its quirky cop comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” but NBC picked it up for another season less than two days later.

ABC also canceled the previously renewed “Roseanne” revival, after Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. However, ABC announced a spin-off called “The Conners” without Barr that premiered in October.

In 2018, the streaming giants are cancelling more shows than ever as well, with many getting cut on Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix.

So if you’re wondering why a show you love hasn’t returned in 2018, it might have been canceled. (You can also use this list to see what shows are not returning in the fall or in 2019.)

Here are all the shows that were canceled in 2017 and 2018, including those from networks and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon:
