Bookmark this page! With so many new shows coming, some fan favorites are coming to an end. Us Weekly will continue to update the full list below of renewals and cancelations.
While some shows remain on the bubble, other series — some very beloved — learned early enough that they would be wrapping up. Last Man Standing, which aired the first six seasons on ABC before moving to Fox for three more, will come to an end in May 2021.
Although Fox told the cast early that the show would end, star and producer Tim Allen still was upset about it. “We don’t want to wrap it up. We just want to say, ‘that was the end of the day,’ and not dwell that it’s the end of the show, because the family in the world of sitcoms goes on and you’re just not aware of their family anymore,” the comedian, 67, told Us exclusively in December 2020. “We were very invested in this group.”
This Is Us, NBC’s most popular drama, will also come to an end in 2022 following the sixth season — something that creator Dan Fogelman has always said was the plan. In April 2019, the showrunner told The Hollywood Reporter that season 3 was viewed as a midway point of the series.
“We never set out to make a television series that was going to last 18 seasons, so we have a very direct plan,” the Crazy, Stupid, Love writer said. “I have script pages I have written and I’m writing that really are deep, deep, deep into the future. We have a plan for what we’re going to do, and I know what the plan is.”
Fogelman commented on the show’s season 6 pickup in May 2021, shortly after news broke that it would also be the end of the Pearson family’s story. “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end,’ never had to end their favorite thing,” he tweeted. “While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing. #ThisIsUs.”
Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, meanwhile, spoke out about the ABC comedy’s bittersweet renewal, confirming that season 8 will be its last.
“To ALL the people in the world I love, honor, respect and care for it is both exciting and bittersweet to share that black-ish been RENEWED by ABC for its EIGHTH … and FINAL SEASON,” Barris wrote via Instagram at the time. “In this day and age it is rare to get to decide when your show should come to an end, and we are grateful along with ABC to be able to make this final season exactly what we’d hoped for – and to do it with the entire and AMAZINGLY STELLAR cast coming back to close this chapter out with us the right way!”
