It's that time of year when network execs go all thumbs up and thumbs down and decide the fates our favorite shows. That's right, it's gladiator days in TV land, and there's a lot happening. Here's some of the most recent cancellations and pick-ups as they pertain to our sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural realm.
Hooray! NBC's Blindspot is coming back for Season 3, despite sagging numbers. Looks like execs are still interested in what Jaimie Alexander's many tattoos still have to say. But not every good NBC sci-fi show survived. The network pulled the plug on Timeless, a time-travel adventure that really was a lot of fun. Producers say they'll shop it around for a new home, but yeah, the odds are pretty long. At Fox, the network has decided to renew both Gotham and Last Man on Earth. Which is good news, because both shows are pretty great (especially Last Man on Earth).
Over at The CW, a few shows landed renewals. The zombie dramedy iZombie will be coming back for a fourth season, with the vampire soap The Originals locked in for a fifth season. The network has also opted to place a series order for the new superhero series Black Lightning, which was pretty much a foregone conclusion. But still, it's official.
What's your take on the renewal (and cancellation) news? Any surprises?
