In the olden days of TV, we used to have to wait anxiously for the few times a year that network executives made their decisions about which programs would stay on the air, and which would get the axe. Now, shows are renewed as soon as thereâ€™s evidence that theyâ€™re successful. Often, itâ€™s the morning after a successful pilot airs on TV.
While there have been some shows that have gotten the axe already this year, tons of our favorites are returning for further seasons. Hereâ€™s a list of some of the best shows that have already been picked up for renewal this year.
Although this comedy about Brooklyn police detectives was technically just cancelled by Fox, it was saved from the axe by NBC, who announced that they would be producing the showâ€™s upcoming sixth season. There was a huge outpouring of support for the show after its cancellation was announced, and fans led a furious campaign to get another network to produce the showâ€™s sixth season. Luckily, NBC ignored the showâ€™s middling ratings and listened to the fans, and the sixth season will premiere on their roster some time in 2019.
