Most networks already made their announcements concerning the fate of their series; and while some were predictable, there were also a few cancellations that came out of nowhere (we’re still pining for Selfie

When the big announcements came, CBS managed to spare most of its shows. The widely popular “The Big Bang Theory” was already renewed through the 10th season, since last year. Also, new shows “Madam Secretary”, “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Scorpion” received a second season.
Meanwhile, Fox network also renewed its breakout hit “Empire”, alongside “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, “Gotham” and Zooey Deschanel’s “New Girl”, among others.
So far, NBC only gave another season to one of its most successful shows, “The Blacklist”, as well as “The Apprentice” and “Grimm”. Both “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” were spared as well.
As far as The CW’s renewals go, veteran shows “Supernatural” and “The Vampire Diarises” got their 11th and 7th season, respectively. Also on the renewal list are “Reign”, The Flash” and, of course, “Jane the Virgin”, who won a Golden Globe this January… so no surprise there!
Cable networks stuck mostly with their winning shows, including HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Girls”, PBS’ “Downton Abbey” and Showtime’s “The Affair” and “Homeland”. AMC went with “Better Call Saul”, the sequel to the widely popular “Breaking Bad”, but also with its other massive hit, “The Walking Dead”. “South Park” got a whooping 20th season from Comedy Central, while Bravo renewed “The Real Housewives of Orange County” for the 10th season.
In the online streaming universe, Netflix renewed “House of Cards”, “Bloodline”, which premiered only a few weeks ago, and Tina Fey’s “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”.
Notably, ABC is the only major network that hasn’t shared its plans for renewals, which means we might get a few surprises there.
Here’s the complete list of the TV series that were renewed so far:
