Broad City (Comedy Central)
This comedy series follows the lives of Ilana and Abbi, two young Jewish-American women, who are making their way in New York City. It was announced that season five would be the end.
Busy Tonight (E!)
A late-night talk show, this series debuted in October 2018. In May 2019, host Busy Philipps revealed that the series had been cancelled but she hopes to find a new home for the series.
Co-creator Jenni Konner has indicated that there are no plans to make a second season and, she and co-creator Lena Dunham are committed to making their own projects. It did not do well in the ratings so, it seems doubtful that HBO would be itching for a second season anyway.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW)
A romantic musical dramedy series, this Rachel Bloom series defied odds and was repeatedly renewed, despite low ratings. It was announced that Rebecca Bunch’s (Bloom) story would come to a close with season four.
Marvel’s Iron Fist (Netflix)
The martial-arts hero series was dropped after two short seasons. It’s the first of Netflix’s Marvel series to be cancelled by Netflix but the show could continue when Disney makes their own streaming service.
Marvel’s The Punisher (Netflix)
Following the streamer’s cancellation of other Marvel series, it was no surprise that this one was dropped. Season two was released in January 2019 and there won’t be a third season.
One Day at a Time (Netflix)
A reboot of the Norman Lear sitcom (1975-84), this family sitcom tackled various issues and drew critical acclaim but was ultimately cancelled after three seasons and 39 installments.
A sci-fi drama about abandoned passengers on a spacecraft, this series was dropped after one season and 10 episodes. Harry Potter vets Natalia Tena and Tom Felton were among the cast.
Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television (YouTube)
This comedy series follows Hansen (Veronica Mars) as a fictional version of himself helping homicide detectives bring felons to justice. It lasted two seasons and 16 episodes.
Tanked (Animal Planet)
After 15 seasons, Animal Planet decided that the series had come “to a natual end“. The channel maintains that the show ending is unrelated to a domestic violence dispute between co-host Wayde King and his wife.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
The streaming service decided to break up the fourth and final season into two parts. There’s talk of wrapping up the series with a movie.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (syndicated)
This game show was cancelled after 17 years in first-run syndication. Meredith Vieira (2002–13), Cedric the Entertainer (2013–14), Terry Crews (2014–15), and Chris Harrison (2015-19) each hosted the syndicated program.
Note: Homeland has been removed from this list because it reportedly won’t air until the 2019-20 season. One of a Kind was removed because an HGTV press release incorrectly identified a season finale as a series finale.
