Canceled Television Shows

It's that time of year again—the time we say goodbye to shows that we thought would last forever and a day. Some of our favorites had a good long run such as “Bones,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Bates Motel.” Shows such as “The Blacklist: Redemption” and “Emerald City,” which came out earlier this year and got the ax before they could get a good start. Per TV Series Finale, there are 96 shows being canceled or ending. The following are some of the cancellations of the 2016-2017 season. The lineup posted isn't everything, as some of the series have yet to make their announcements at the time this article was written.
