Recent additions: Teen Mom 3 (MTV) and Californication (Showtime).
Each television season brings lots of different kinds of TV shows but there’s one thing that remains a constant — most of them will end up being cancelled.
Below is the list of TV series that aired or were expected to air during the 2013-14 season (roughly September 2013 to August 2014) and won’t be back for 2014-15.
If you don’t see a particular show on this list, it might be on the list for the 2012-13 season. You can find that one here.
This list will be updated as the season progresses so feel free to bookmark and check back. If I’ve missed something, please let me know.
Back in the Game (ABC)
The alphabet network has decided to cancel the Maggie Lawson sitcom after 13 episodes.
It’s been decided that the seventh season of this David Duchovny TV series will be the end.
Eastbound & Down (HBO)
The fourth season is the end of Kenny Powers’ story.
Good Luck Charlie (Disney Channel)
The house of mouse has decided that the series should end with season four.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Future Ted’s poor kids will finally be able to get off the couch. Talk about child abuse!
Raymond Burr’s original series lasted seven seasons but this remake was cancelled after three episodes.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC)
This show will end so that Fallon can take over the Tonight Show on February 24, 2014.
Less Than Kind (DirecTV )
The fourth season of this Canadian drama is the show’s last. There are 48 episodes.
Low Winter Sun (AMC)
The drama started out well but viewership dropped each week. Once it didn’t have Breaking Bad as a lead-in, the numbers got even worse. It’s been cancelled.
Lucky 7 (ABC)
The show was unlucky in the ratings and the network cancelled it after two episodes. It’s the first show of the network season to be cancelled.
Murder Police (FOX)
The network ordered this animated series but cancelled it before it was completed. The studio may complete the series and shop it elsewhere.
Nikita (The CW)
The action series survived for three years — despite poor ratings. The network decided to end it with season four.
Nikki & Sara Live (MTV)
The late-night series has been dropped after two seasons. The last episode aired October 29, 2013.
Reed Between the Lines (BET)
Star Tracee Ellis Ross left after one season so the show was reworked for season two. The show was later cancelled and it’s unclear when/if the second season will air.
Ripper Street (BBC America)
The UK series was cancelled after two seasons.
Teen Mom 3 (MTV)
This incarnation of the Teen Mom franchise only lasted one season and 14 episodes.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC)
The network has chosen to replace Leno as host for the second time. His final show is February 4, 2014.
Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell (FXX)
The new cable channel handed down its first cancellation notice to this late-night talker.
The cable channel announced that David Simon’s low-rated New Orleans series would end with season four.
True Blood (HBO)
Vampires may live forever but this popular cable show ends with season seven.
Up Late with Alec Baldwin (MSNBC)
The cable channel’s first interview show lasted just five episodes.
Warehouse 13 (Syfy)
In May 2013, the cable channel announced that they were renewing the series for a fifth but final season of six episodes.
We Are Men (CBS)
The network has high expectations for their sitcoms and this one premiered poorly. When the second episode did even worse, that was enough.
Welcome to the Family (NBC)
This sitcom drew poor ratings from the start and is no longer welcome in the NBC family.
Ryan and his big canine pal are moving to FXX for the fourth and final season.
Us & Them (FOX)
The network reportedly didn’t feel the tone of this romantic comedy would fit with their other sitcoms. They shut down production and told the cast they could look for other work. The produced episodes may air.
Note: Last Call with Carson Daly has been removed from the list because, at least for now, NBC has decided to keep it going with Daly as host.
