24: Legacy (FOX)
This action series had a great start (thanks to a Super Bowl lead-in) but the numbers dwindled as the weeks progressed. There may be another entry in the 24 saga at some point but this version is finished.
Bates Motel (A&E)
This series was renewed for seasons four and five in June 2015 with the producers having a specific idea of what they wanted to do in those episodes. It was later revealed that season five would be the end.
The network yanked this legal drama from its Wednesday night timeslot after just two episodes. The network hasn’t officially cancelled it but they certainly won’t be making a second season.
Duck Dynasty (A&E)
It was announced that season 11 is the final run for Robertson reality series but the family members may return in specials.
It was announced in April 2016 that season five is the end of the road for this comedy series about a husband-and-wife writing team who move to Hollywood to remake their successful British TV series.
Secrets and Lies (ABC)
The ratings were pretty poor in its first season but ABC renewed this mystery drama for a second season anyway. The numbers got much worse in season two so, there won’t be a season three.
Switched at Birth (Freeform)
A teen/family drama, this show was renewed for a fifth season in October 2015. It was confirmed to be the final season in March 2016. The last episodes were delayed until 2017.
Teen Wolf (MTV)
Loosely based on the 1985 movie of the same name, this supernatural dramedy became very popular for the cable channel. It was announced in July 2016 that the sixth season would be the end.
The Vampire Diaries (The CW)
Based on a popular book series, this supernatural drama became the network’s most popular series. After years of declining ratings, it was announced that the show would end with a shortened eighth season.
