TV: Who's on the chopping block?

As many TV series are wrapping up their seasons over the next few months, renewal and cancellation season has come.

Many networks have already placed their renewal orders for next year, but they will continue to renew and cancel shows through the summer.

Here's a list of some of the notable shows that either have been canceled, wrapped, or have been left out of the renewal orders and are currently awaiting their fate.


How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Series ended in March after nine seasons.

Mad Men (AMC): The final season will be split over 2014 and 2015.

Psych (USA): Series ended in March after eight seasons.

Treme (HBO): A final 5-epsiode season was ordered.

True Blood (HBO): The popular vampire series wraps after seven seasons.

Wilfred (FXX): The show will move to FXX for their fourth and final season.

The Newsroom (HBO): A third and final season was announced after last year's finale.

Eastbound & Down (HBO): The show will air a fourth and final season this summer.

The Boondocks (Adult Swim): The fourth season will be its last.


The X Factor (FOX): Simon Cowell moved to the UK version. The U.S. version suffered in ratings.

Piers Morgan Live (CNN): Canceled after poor ratings for the Larry King replacement.

Raising Hope (FOX): Canceled after poor third and fourth season ratings.

On the Bubble

The Crazy Ones (CBS): While the network still needs to fill the spot that "How I Met Your Mother" left, they may elect to go with "Mike & Molly" and cancel this show outright.

Community (NBC): Six seasons and a movie? It might be possible.

NBC always keeps this show in limbo, so "Community" fans are used to it by now.

Having Dan Harmon back should give this show a better chance.

Almost Human (FOX): The show suffered from some story problems in its first season.

Fox may bring this back with a shortened season to see if it has some legs.

Revolution (NBC): Even with a controversial finale, the show still hasn't seen a renewal from NBC. The story has splintered since season one, and that alienated a lot of viewers.

Hannibal (NBC): Ratings are poor, but the show is getting very positive reviews. Rumors are that someone else may pick this up if NBC dumps it.

The Mentalist (CBS): Even in its sixth season, this show is clearing 9 million an episode, yet CBS left it out in its recent round of renewals.

CBS does have a very strong schedule as it is, so they may just be finding out how this show fits.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC): The groundbreaking show with tie-ins to the Marvel cinematic universe has yet to get the green light for a second season.

Disney is adamant on letting Marvel do its thing, so seeing this show in some form next season is likely.
