Though it may be hard for fans to say goodbye, every TV series must come to an end eventually. Unfortunately for some viewers, several notable TV shows — from veteran favorites like Scandal to critically acclaimed comedies like Veep — are set air their final seasons next year.
Below, check out all of the popular shows that are ending for good in 2018.
1. The Middle
The long-running ABC sitcom will end after its upcoming ninth season, which kicks off in October 2017 and wraps up in 2018. Though the series has never been a huge ratings breakout, it’s been a steady mainstay on the network’s schedule since 2009.
ABC announced the decision to cancel the series in August 2017, with co-creators Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline stating: “It’s been an amazing run, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we’re looking forward to having an entire year to say goodbye.”
The show will reach its 200th episode milestone in its final season.
