Netflix has been cancelling shows left and right over the past year and more and it has been taking a lot of heat for it lately. In an attempt to divert negative attention away from the company, CEO Ted Sarandos made the following claims related to the cancellations in an interview with Bloomberg: We have never canceled a successful show. A lot of these shows were well-intended but talk to a very small audience on a very big budget. The key to it is you have to be able to talk to a small audience on a small budget and a large audience at a large budget. If you do that well, you can do that for ..read more

Which CW Sci Fi/Fantasy Shows Will Survive Past the Current Season?
Cancelled Sci Fi
by johnnyjay
4d ago
There was a time not too long ago when I referred to The CW as the “Happy Network” because it tended to renew its shows much more often than it cancelled them. Didn’t matter if the ratings weren’t great, the execs at the CW were playing the long game and sticking by the shows they had on their schedule. In fact, usually right about this time of year they would issue a blanket renewal for most if not all of their Fall shows, and perhaps some upcoming shows as well. Unfortunately, that interfered with the network maintaining profitability (though its co-owners Warner Bros. and CBS still made goo ..read more

Peacock Has Cancelled Vampire Academy After One Season
Cancelled Sci Fi
by johnnyjay
6d ago
Yet another cancellation to start out the year as Peacock has announced that it will not be going forward with a second season of Vampire Academy. The series comes from The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec and allegedly the streamer was happy with the show creatively but it did not develop much of an audience. The fact that it was not well-promoted may have had something to do with that. Viewership for Peacock is not tracked by the Nielsen Streaming Rankings, and the streamer never released any audience stats for the show. Vampire Academy is one of several young adult supernatural dramas to ..read more

Starz has confirmed that its time-traveling historical drama Outlander will continue into an eighth season, but the show will wrap up at that point. The upcoming seventh season is set to premiere this summer and will consist of sixteen episodes while the eighth season will consist of ten eps. It is unclear if the show will cover through the ninth novel in the book series or end at the eighth. It has been covering one book per season, but perhaps they will cover two in the expanded seventh year. A tenth book is in the works from Diana Gabaldon, but that will not be part of the television series ..read more

The Cancelled and Ending Sci Fi/Fantasy Shows Outnumber the Renewals So Far in the 2022-23 Season
Cancelled Sci Fi

Peak TV has been driving up the number of scripted originals on television for years now, reaching a new high in 2022 with 559 according to the latest report. But I have been saying for some time that the bubble will burst eventually and we have been seeing signs of that over the past six months. The turmoil at HBO Max following the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery led to multiple cancellations as well as shows getting yanked from the service. There have been behind-the-scenes shakeups at AMC Networks which have led to Moonhaven and Pantheon getting axed despite second-season renewals. The ..read more

Chucky and Reginald the Vampire Have Been Renewed by Syfy

Syfy is defying expectations to start out the new year. Despite the many cancellations we are seeing from other networks, Syfy–which has a reputation for cancelling shows–has gone the other direction and renewed two of its originals, one of which is somewhat of a surprise. The cable net has given a third season renewal to its horror series Chucky, and a second season renewal to its vampire dramedy Reginald The Vampire. The renewal for Chucky does not come as much of a surprise despite the fact that its numbers are down notably year-over-year. I predicted as recently as last week’s Cancellation ..read more
