Biggest TV Cancellations of 2018

Although it’s almost impossible to keep up with all the new TV series that are being introduced on primetime and via online streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, there are some shows that make waves when networks announce their cancellation. Some, like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, even make enough of a splash that other networks pick them up and redeem them from cancellation.

This year, a whole slate of our favorite shows were cancelled. Here’s a quick list of some of the largest cancellations that have happened so far in 2018.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This ensemble drama about Brooklyn police detectives stars Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, and Andre Braugher, and has been on the air since 2013. It had just finished its fifth season when it was abruptly cancelled by Fox.

Although ratings for Brooklyn Nine-Nine have never been extremely high, tons of fans came out of the woodwork when Fox announced its cancellation, and it created enough of a buzz that NBC, who always had the rights to the show but never aired it, announced that they would be producing the show’s upcoming sixth season.
