Now that the three-month extended fall television season is finally over, it’s time to look back at the 28 shows that premiered and find out where they all stand.
With news of renewals and cancelations tending to come all at once, finding out the status of your new favorite television shows can get a bit confusing. With only so many hours in the day available for watching TV, the last thing you’d want to happen is to “get into” a show, only to tune in and find out that it’s no longer on the air because it’s been canceled since October.
28 new television series premiered this fall. Of the new series, you’ll be happy to hear that 17 have already been renewed. Unfortunately, 5 have already been canceled, and 6 have yet to be decided. That being said, the majority of the “yet to be decided” series are on the verge of being canceled, though nothing official has been announced (yet).
To help point your DVRs in the right direction in regards to the “yet to be decided” shows, we made sure to throw in our predictions of what’s going to happen, based on the information known – because, you know, we like to give you things to complain about in the comments ;-).
