Every TV Show That’s Been Canceled in 2019

Every TV Show That’s Been Canceled in 2019


Television has never been bigger than it is at this very moment. With so many new shows coming at us across every platform, there just isn’t room for them all to stick around forever. It’s survival of the fittest, and not every show can hang on. So, which TV shows have been canceled in 2019 so far? Sadly, we are poised to lose some of our favorites — and it’s only spring.

The most recent slew of shows to get canceled are Murphy Brown, Splitting Up Together and I Feel Bad. Before this week’s massacre, the last cancellation to make major headlines was the Supernatural on The CW. Okay, so this technically wasn’t a cancelation, but Variety did confirm that Supernatural would end after its 15th season, which will premiere later in 2019. In a video posted to his Instagram in the wake of the news, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles appeared with costars Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins to share the news with the fans, saying, “We just told the crew that even though we’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last. 15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to hear from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”

Supernatural isn’t the only show to recently get canceled, either. Also in March, Netflix confirmed it would be canceling One Day at a Time and HBO confirmed it was canceling it’s light comedy series Crashing. These shows are certainly not the only shows that have been or will be canceled in 2019, so let’s take a lot at the other shows that have gotten the ax thus far in 2019.
