2016 TV: What Shows Have Been Canceled or Renewed?

It’s just about that time when all of the major networks and streaming platforms will have to decide which entries from their lineups — from sitcoms to fantasy dramas — will come back for another season and which will be pulled for good. While many channels wait until later in the year to announce their final decisions, some have already revealed which shows  are coming back and which have officially been axed.
