Updated: Oct. 6, 2023 – Surprisingly, we’re still dealing with TV cancellations for scripted series from the 2022-2023 television season even though we’re in an entirely new broadcast year. The delay has been due to the writers strike that kicked off in May 1, 2023 and lasted for 148 days before the WGA and the AMPTP reached an tentative agreement bringing the strike to an end on Sept. 27.
While the actors strike, which began on July 14, is still ongoing, we expect decisions on the last shows to be left in limbo to be made in the coming weeks. Since the start of renewal and cancellation season, Hidden Remote has been keeping track of what’s returning for the 2023-2024 television year and what’s been axed by ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, and NBC.
In the following coverage, you’ll see which scripted dramas and comedies as well as unscripted programming like game shows, reality series, and talks shows have been renewed and which have been canceled.
This list also includes series that were renewed for multiple seasons prior to 2023 and are expected to continue into the 2023-2024 season. Now, without further ado, here’s the renewal scorecard for the Big 5 networks along with which shows are still on the bubble.
TV cancellations and renewals in 2023

ABC still has one series it needs to make a decision on. The rest of their roster, however, has been determined. The network also added 9-1-1 to its line-up after the hit series was canceled by FOX. The procedural drama’s spin off, 9-1-1: Lone Star is staying put on FOX for its fifth season.

ABC shows canceled in 2023
The Goldebergs was canceled, making its tenth season its last. Also canceled: Alaska Daily, Big Sky, and The Company You Keep. While there hasn’t been official confirmation that the game show The Final Straw won’t be moving forward with a season 2, TVLine reports that the series has been axed.
Unfortunately for fans of The Wonder Years reboot, the move to being a part of ABC’s summer line-up didn’t work out for the series. It was canceled after it finished its second season run and won’t be returning for a third.
A decision has finally been made concerning Home Economics’ fourth season. The comedy series closed out the 2022-2023 television season without a renewal or cancellation announcement. The network initially put off making a decision until after the strikes end, however, that’s no longer the case. With the writers strike finished, ABC has canceled the show instead of holding out for the actors strike to end. This leaves only The Rookie: Feds without a renewal or cancellation.
As previously reported by Hidden Remote, the show’s cast was under option until October but, because of the work stoppage, the network could hold out until December to make a decision on The Rookie: Feds. They aren’t likely to do this considering finalizing what the midseason schedule will look like and what shows may be held until the 2024-2025 season is imperative.
In dramatic fashion, CBS concluded its 2022-2023 renewal and cancellation season by first cancelling S.W.A.T. in an unexpected move that blindsided the show’s lead Shemar Moore. However, after fan backlash and Moore taking to social media to voice his displeasure, CBS reversed its decision and renewed the series for a seventh season which will be its final one.
The network renewed the majority of its programming but, unfortunately, for some fans of its scripted titles, three didn’t make the cut and won’t be returning for the 2023-2024 television season.

As such, longtime viewers will see notable absences in the fall schedule which has been outfitted with acquired television series. Four U.S. scripted originals have been renewed along with a renewal for one of their latest acquisitions which has yet to air.

According to Heather Oleander, the Head of Unscripted at The CW, “after that that we don’t know [what] the future is.
