Is anyone a Transparent fan here? Well, we’ve got sad news for you. This Amazon show will end after its fifth season, and so will the secrets about the dysfunctional family.


2. Scandal

The seventh season is the final installment of the beloved show “Scandal”. But those who are into this show at least had a chance to have closure in the finale, since its creator Shonda Rhimes had been working for a while with the endgame in mind.


3. The Last Man On Earth

After four seasons on Fox, Season 5 of The Last Man on Earth ended perfectly. The show is about a small group of survivors of a deadly virus.


4. Homeland

Carrie Mathison’s spy missions are about to be brought to a close with the ending of the TV series Homeland. Bummer! But hey, at least we have our chance to say goodbye in season 8.


5. New Girl

Zooey Deschanel will no longer be there to brighten up your lives as Jess, because the seventh and final season of “New Girl” has now ended.


6. Roseanne

The highly acclaimed sitcom Roseanne was abruptly canceled by ABC due to star Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. But good news for fans! The remaining cast members have returned for “The Conners” that’s currently being aired.


7. Quantico

After three seasons on ABC, the terrorism drama Quantico will not see a fourth season.


8. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Fox controversially put the beloved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine on the list of programming to be canceled after five seasons. Thankfully, NBC quickly picked up the sitcom for another season.


9. Life Sentence

Actress Lucy Hale’s debut show hasn’t made it through the first season on the CW. She tweeted, “sometimes things don’t resonate with the audience and shows just don’t work, but I’m so proud of what we accomplished and for the experience I had.”


10. Shades Of Blue

NBC pulled the plug on Shades of Blue starring Jennifer Lopez after its 10-episode third season. “We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption,” said Lopez.


11. The Mayor

The comedy series was canceled during its midseason break and the remaining episodes were made available on a weekly basis on Hulu and then on In spite of the positive audience reviews, the show was axed after just one season.


12. I Love Dick

Amazon comedy I Love Dick created by Jill Soloway (who was also the mastermind behind Transparent), didn’t receive the national-media attention it deserved. The show got canceled after just one season.


13. The Big Bang Theory

It was a total shock when the audience were made aware of the fact that The Big Bang Theory would end after the twelfth and final season. As one of the most watched TV shows in American history, The Big Bang Theory has a huge global fan base.


14. Kevin Can Wait

The Kevin James comedy was canceled by CBS after two seasons. But rumor has it that it’s been purchased by another TV station, which means that hopefully fans can still look forward to a third season.


15. One Mississippi

The sharp and funny One Mississippi has been canceled after two seasons, provoking great sensation amongst critics and TV fans.


16. The Night Shift

NBC has opted not to go forward with a fifth season of army vet medical drama The Night Shift. It’s hardly a shock that the show was canceled considering that it has struggled with low ratings in the US for the previous four seasons.


17. Jean-Claude Van Johnson

As well as One Mississippi and I Love Dick, Amazon has decided not to pick up Jean-Claude Van Johnson for a second season.


18. Law & Order: True Crime

Although NBC didn’t include Law & Order True Crime in its upcoming show list, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the show has been canceled for good and the door has been left open for it to return sometime in the future.


19. Dice

Despite an average of 823,000 viewers per episode during Season 2 (across multiple platforms), the semi-autobiographical series Dice was canceled earlier this year.


20. Once Upon a Time

After years of adventure, romance, magic and love, the ABC drama Once Upon a Time has kissed sweet goodbye to its audience after season seven.


21. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The show will end after its fourth season. But it shouldn’t be a total surprise to anyone because the show’s creators always knew the show would end after four or five chapters. As fans, all we need is a happy-ever-after ending.


22. Alex, Inc.

After one season, ABC canceled its midseason freshman comedy Alex, Inc. The show averaged a lackluster 3.4 million total viewers and had a 0.85 rating in the 18-49 demo.


23. Superior Donuts

CBS has also pulled the plug on Super Donuts starring Judd Hirsch and Jermaine Fowler after two seasons.


24. The Mick

There will be no Season 3 for Fox’s comedy series The Mick, which is surely a blow to Mick fans.


25. Scorpion

The “geek drama” was put to sleep after four seasons on CBS and so was the adventure of the eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team.
