    New TV Show Renewals and Cancellations for 2023: A Broadcast Scorecard

    Updated: Oct. 1, 2023 – The television industry is still grappling with the aftermath of the 2022-2023 season, as renewals and cancellations trickle in. The recent writer’s strike, which lasted for 148 days, caused a delay in decision-making for network executives. However, as the strike has now ended, we can expect more announcements in the coming weeks.

    ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, and NBC have all renewed and canceled various shows, and Hidden Remote has been diligently tracking the changes. Notably, ABC has already revealed most of its renewal decisions, with only one series still pending. Additionally, FOX took over the hit series 9-1-1 after it was canceled by the network and added it to its own lineup.

    Here is a breakdown of the renewals and cancellations across the Big 5 networks:

    ABC Renewed Shows for 2023:

    In a surprising move, the reboot of The Wonder Years, which aired during the summer on ABC, did not receive a renewal after completing its second season. Similarly, Home Economics, despite not yet receiving an official decision, has been canceled due to the conclusion of the writer’s strike. The only remaining show without a renewal or cancellation is The Rookie: Feds, with a decision expected soon.

    Moving on to CBS, the network has renewed the majority of its programming, with only a few casualties:

    CBS Renewed Shows for 2023:

    It’s worth noting that CBS initially canceled S.W.A.T., but reversed its decision following fan backlash and the lead actor, Shemar Moore’s public outcry. However, the renewed seventh season will be the series’ last.
