    In years past we have listed up the TV shows that have been cancelled, renewed or otherwise had word of their future mentioned.
    This would be the 2013 edition, despite a few shows having not actually finished their present series word is coming down (indeed I am probably a bit late to the game this year)
    I typically do not go in for the trailers for new shows but as such news is often part and parcel of cancellations and renewals you are quite free to discuss it. About the only thing I note is the spinoff that started in NCIS LA (backdoor pilots broadcast this series) seems to have been picked up.

    Also the way US works is strange for those that have had TV from other parts of the world so a quick overview is probably necessary.
    Our traditional guide to such matters is screenwipe series 2 episode 5, as ever we apologise for the wasted evening that learning about this show (and the others the presenter has done) causes.

    In addition to that The CW seems to have wheedled its way into popularity enough for the main lists, the USA network possibly wants to be mentioned, AMC does Breaking Bad, mad men and the walking dead so it needs mentioning and the list will go on for a little while (FX does a few shows, syfy does some shows and even this history channel does Vikings now -- it was renewed by the way)

    Sources, sauces, saucy, courses and horses.
    My favourite TV calendar seems to be running a nice guide
    As ever I am having a bit of trouble figuring out what goes with the likes of HBO (game of thrones was already renewed for series 4) and showtime with the list being about the only thing to cover it properly.

    Times are a changing as well with netflix actually going so far as to commission their own shows, cancelled shows to stream the remaining episodes not being an unusual event and things sticking around in other countries in various forms but things are still dominated by the networks as it were. More curiously 24 appears to be coming back but we have a thread there

    The choice comes to break it down by network or go roughly alphabetically/as I copy them from another list. I am mainly using here which is a pretty American list (several shows are continuing on in various forms in Canada, have already aired elsewhere or are otherwise outside American TV remits) but it will try to be noted where and when it is necessary.

    Flashpoint was renewed for a final series last time which has already played out but I have to note its passing. This year also sees the fall of another CSI.

    Any you did not expect to remain still going, any you expected to stick around been cancelled, have the TV executives stomped all over your fun for umpteenth year going?

    About the only thing I care to note is that nobody has yet put the walking dead out of its misery despite supposedly having another showrunner.

    Can't believe Happy Endings got cancelled, and 2 Broke Girls is still on the air <_<.

    Also, sad Alpha's got cancelled. Hate when shows end with a cliffhanger then get cancelled. Other than that, better than last year for me.

    Yes vampire diaries and supernatural will be back next season :) my 2 favorite shows! Glad emily owens m.d. was cancelled, we do not need another DR. show. especially on cw...I'm sorry but thats the way it is IMO. Now I didn't really care for the cult either (I stopped watching after the very first episode) Arrow was ok at the end, the show did get me up on my seat from time to time :) Nikita was EPIC! Happy they renewed it. OH SIT was shit lol idk how the hell that got renewed. Heart of dixie was again was the carrie diaries, didn't care much for either of them. I miss L.A. Complex :( that was a good show, better than 90210 and speaking off 90210 I didn't really like the ending, just didn't like it, my opinion :D loved gossip girl! Hate americas next top model!!! Beauty & the beast was just ok for me too, it was interesting with the relationship between kat and vincent.

    Monday Mornings on TNT was a good show...

    There are just too many shows on television and too few time slots to give them all a chance... Monday Mornings started up but we already had our Monday evening line-up set.

    Every network tries to keep everyone's perpetual attention rather than focusing on helping to make their quality programs successful. FX and AMC are partly doing so well because they green light quality programming, support them, and air their shows on the same night every week. AMC airs theirs on Sundays. FX on Tuesdays. And neither of them have any cancellations.

    Network television has really fallen off in recent years while cable has grown exponentially.

    Oh, look, Simpsons is renewed for another season. What a surprise.

    Sad to see Office go. It was a great comedy, but it was time for it to go.

    Good to see: Whitney, New Normal, Rules of Engagement, CSY: NY cancelled
    Disappointed to see: Go On, Vegas, and Golden Boy cancelled
    On the fence: Community season 5, Warehouse 13 apparently only renewed for a "six episode final season" after this one ends. Didn't know Burn Notice was ending either but I haven't been paying attention to it the last couple of years.

    As for Alphas, I never really watched it and don't know much of what's going on, but as most Syfy shows seem to take place in a shared universe it's possible that the story could be wrapped up elsewhere.

    It's worth noting that How I Met Your Mother was renewed for season 9 to go from Fall 2013 into May 2014. Seeing how the list is organized, I figure that would qualify simply as renewed rather than final series.

    By the way, I think you mean "Final season", not "Final series". A series is broken up into seasons, which is broken up into episodes.

    A series is simply a story a.k.a Tv show , an episode is only a few pages of that story , and a season just a chapter of that story . Is that a little more clear for you ?

    I don't see what point you are trying to make. Saying that this was the "final series" for a show is inaccurate.

    Maybe what he meant by "final series" is , that this is the last season a.k.a. final episodes .
    Not sure why you would an issue out of something so miniscule , I am sure most understood what he/she was saying .
