The cruel ‘Covid Cancelation’ may be a thing of the past, but our favorite TV shows are no more safe from the reaper’s ax than they ever were. Studio ownership, streaming deals, and (if we’re to believe it) Live +7 ratings numbers all play a role in reducing just about every TV show to a profitable or non-profiable number. Is that fair? Absolutely not! But should you suffer a life of TV limbo, wondering if your show is just on another extended Covid-induced hiatus/waiting to be picked up by a streamer/definitely coming back at some point or actually gone forever? Also absolutely not.
Thankfully, TVPulse Magazine has you covered. In our cancelation guide below you will find a regularly updated (that means you should bookmark it and return obsessively) list of Broadcast, Cable, and Streaming shows that have met their maker, when and (where possible) why. This list is updated daily, or as necessary.

When I set out to make Dickinson, I envisioned the show as a three-season journey that would tell the origin story of America’s greatest female poet in a whole new way, highlighting Emily’s relevance and resonance to our society today,” series creator Alena Smith commented in a statement. “In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined how rich and satisfying the experience of making this show would become, and the incredible joy it has been to tell Emily’s story along with Hailee [Steinfeld] and our brilliant, passionate cast and crew.”
“I can’t wait to share our epic final season with the world, and to bring our audience along with us to the conclusion of Emily’s coming-of-age saga, as she continues to fight for her own poetic truth, while reckoning with so many of the issues that face us now.”
