(NEW YORK) — The major broadcast TV networks will present their 2016-2017 schedules next week, but the fate of several shows has already leaked.
Here are the renewals and cancellations that were reported Thursday:
Sorry, Kermit and Miss Piggy — you were given the hook. ABC Radio has learned that the ABC-TV network has cancelled The Muppets after one season. It’s also moving on from Castle, the country music drama Nashville, the musical comedy Galavant, the drama The Family, and the Marvel series Agent Carter.
The decision to cut ties with Castle after eight seasons is not a surprise, given that it was previously announced that lead female star Stana Katic was leaving the show.
ABC Radio also learned that the dramas American Crime and The Catch, as well as the comedies The Real O’Neals and Dr. Ken, were picked up for next season.
Good news for fans of The Good Wife: a spin-off seems to be on the way.
CBS is in final negotiations for a spin-off featuring Christine Baranski’s character, Diane Lockhart, that would stream on its CBS All Access service, Variety reports. Cush Jumbo, who played Lucca Quinn in the just-concluded final season of The Good Wife, would also star.
Variety further notes that Kevin James is officially returning to CBS, with the network giving a series order to his new comedy, Kevin Can Wait. James, who previously starred in the CBS sitcom The King of Queens, will play a newly retired police officer who has a wife and three kids.
CBS has pulled the plug on CSI: Cyber after two seasons, Variety reports. It was the only remaining show in the CSI franchise.
Supergirl was renewed for a second season, but CBS is moving it to its sister network, The CW. The CW is also moving forward with Riverdale, based on Archie Comics, and an adaptation of the 2000 Dennis Quaid movie Frequency.
NBC has officially ordered Chicago Justice, the fourth series in Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise, Variety reports. The show will follow a team of prosecutors and investigators in the Windy City.
Fox chose not to pick up four comedies for a second season: Rob Lowe’s The Grinder, John Stamos’ Grandfathered, Seth MacFarlane’s animated series Bordertown, and Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
