The 2017-18 Renew/Cancel Big Board


It's the return of the Renew/Cancel Big Board: a live record of what's renewed, what's cancelled and what's to be determined on broadcast TV as news comes in during the newsiest days of the TV year. Below the table, there's an also live-updating timeline, because it might be neat to look back on what time everything happens. (Here's last year's version.)

This year I am trying to capture the entire 2017-18 renew/cancel timeline, dating back to decisions made in 2016. Beginning on Monday, May 7, the timeline will start including the time like last year. Before the craziness arrives, please let me know of any omissions or errors. (Also, please refer to the disclaimer at the bottom, as that might cover some of your suggestions.) Thanks!

DISCLAIMER:

These statuses are generally based on official announcements or reports. That means some things that others have listed as renewed as well as cancelled may be left off here for now.

On the renewal side, it is reasonable to consider Bob's Burgers and Family Guy as basically renewed because of how many episodes are left in their production orders. But this page will wait for an official announcement (which may just be them ending up on the fall schedule), on the infinitesimal chance that they get shipped off to Adult Swim or something.

My threshold to declare a 'cancellation' without an official announcement is a show that gets pulled from the schedule with episodes remaining. I don't consider shows that air their entire fall orders without an episode extension to be cancelled, but some others are willing to go there. This year, that club includes Wisdom of the Crowd, The Brave and Valor.

Please don't let me know that a show was 'ended' rather than 'cancelled.' I get that a lot of fans are worried about the connotations of the word 'cancel,' but the only distinction I really care about for these purposes is 'coming back' vs. 'not coming back.'
