    Alcatraz is on Fox.

  • Jacob

    Fringe is ending? I kind of understand that, the story has been getting a little draggy lately. But I hope the ending’s good! And ONCE better be renewed!!!!!

    • http://twitter.com/bsbrock Janeth Gutierrez

      I actually think Fringe has been great this year, I’m glad we’re getting another season with a proper ending.
      As for OUAT, it’ll get renewed for sure, it’s one of the highest rated shows for ABC right now.

  • Eoin

    After the end of this TV season, will Hypable stop covering them and make room for new shows that come out in the fall?

    • rdh014

      I think they will continue to cover popular fandoms, new and old. 

      • Eoin

        True but it just seems like there would be a lack of news. It’s not like Harry Potter, HP is practically an automatic.

  • http://twitter.com/bsbrock Janeth Gutierrez

    Sad to see that Ringer wasn’t even included in this list.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=17127641 Laura Jurgensmeyer

    Pan Am and Ringer should be on this list… 

    • http://hypable.com Selina

      We don’t cover those on Hypable!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=17127641 Laura Jurgensmeyer

        Oh, okay. You guys have had articles before about Ringer and Pan Am including when Pan Am was rumored to be canceled, so I guess that’s why I figured they would be there.

        • http://hypable.com Selina

           I debated adding them to the list, but then I’d have to add EVERY show to the list. Which I guess I could do, but it’s very time-consuming. :/

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=17127641 Laura Jurgensmeyer

             Haha, yeah, I understand! That’s quite a good list already anyway!

  • Steven R

    why is there just question marks after saturday night live. of course that is very likely to be back on. it’s been on for 36 years, there not going to end it now.

    • http://hypable.com Selina

       That’s the only one I couldn’t find any information about. Probably cause as you say it’s likely to be renewed, I just didn’t want to say anything about it that wasn’t backed up.

  • http://twitter.com/Shaftsword Shaft Almasy

    Not sure how I would feel about the Secret Circle, the people are very people but the show is a little slow. But then good god Vampire Diaries started off real slow.

  • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

    Oh man OUAT is the only one I’m just biting my nails about. I can’t wait for it to be officially renewed! 

    • Jed Anderson

      I could have swore that Once Upon a Time was confirmed for a 2nd season at PaleyFest… maybe not i guess

      • Hp-Glee-Hunger-Games-Fan

        I think the producers/writers/cast/etc. are already preparing for season 2 as its almost certain to be renewed, but ABC hasn’t officially signed the documents yet. I think they’re holding out on official word for a lot of shows that are highly likely to be renewed such as Modern Family.

  • Bikkun

    And what about Hart of Dixie?

    • http://hypable.com Selina

       We don’t cover that either.

  • http://twitter.com/purplehrdwonder Caitlin Kelly

    Hm, I’m curious about where this information comes from. I like hearing that Nikita is likely to be renewed, but everywhere else says it’s as on the bubble as on the bubble can be.

    • http://hypable.com Selina

      The likelihood I assessed for this post of shows being renewed is based on ratings, the general opinion of fans on message boards, and what they say on other sites that analyse renewal chances. I also asked the other people on Hypable who cover the various shows to weigh in on what they thought. In Nikita’s case we were actually debating where to put it, because everyone seems to go back and forth on it a lot; a few months ago it was practically confirmed that it was cancelled, but now suddenly most signs point towards The CW giving it another chance (the main argument being that two more seasons = syndication). Harri (who covers Nikita) did say it should be in the orange category but I forgot to change it before the post went live. It’s been changed now, and we’ll keep re-assessing the show until we get a final verdict from the network.

  • Mel823

    I pretty sure OUaT and The Voice were already confirmed for renewals. Also you can go to http://www.ismyshowcancelled.com/home/ to get updated info. 

    • http://hypable.com Selina

       The renewal of Once Upon a Time is absolutely expected but it has, in fact, not yet been officially announced.

      • Mel823

        okay, thanks!

        So…when are we going to get a OUaT podcast? :)

        • http://hypable.com Selina

           Oh man. We’re considering it. Maybe next season, but we’ll have to assess that closer to the time :)

  • Phantomfluteplayer

    Castle is most likely coming back for Season 5. While I don’t think it’s official yet, it’s a safe bet. 

  • Georgie_Girl

    Bones is on Fox, not NBC :) 
    Thanks for the great list!

  • Anh022

    Hart of Dixie should be covered on here! And should be renewed with Nikita!

  • Peeta Mellark

    American Idol is on Fox, and Raising Hope was renewed

  • Gary65

    THE SECRET CIRCLE!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!! Gimme

  • Jessica

    Ahh Parks and Rec we need a conformation! I mean, it’s the smartest, funniest, and all around best show on tv so I know i’tll get renewed, but I hate hanging like this. 

  • http://twitter.com/CatKoski Cat Koski

    I know that Community is likely to be renewed, but this fangirl NEEDS confirmation. I’m giving myself anxiety at the prospect of it not getting renewed.

  • Emma

    Does anyone know anything about Parenthood?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1229430522 Kiara Rubin

    only 13 ep for fringe??? :((

  • Hp-Glee-Hunger-Games-Fan

    I will sleep better when Once Upon a Time is officially renewed.

    Oh, and isn’t American Idol on FOX, not ABC?

  • 7Starrchasers

    I loved Alcatraz..I would be SO mad if it was cancelled!

  • alvaromolina

    Shameless was renewed for season 3! :)

  • http://twitter.com/BrandiTiana Brandi Delhagen

    I’m actually an Alcatraz fan! I loved the storyline but the lead female character most definitely gets on my nerves. It’s quite unfortunate. However I DO want to ask, am I the only one on Hypable that watches ‘Revenge’?? That show is AMAZING and I’d love for it to be covered by hypable..just a thought

    • hotelcesarfan2008

       im not sure what hypable is but i can asure you that your not the only one to watch revenge, its a fantastic show and addictive

      • Alcyone

         You’re not sure what Hypable is? … ????

    • dlskin

       I love Revenge as well!  I wish their was a podcast for it where they talk about theories, my husband and I get pretty extensive with ours but our friends don’t watch so we can’t discuss with anyone else

  • dlskin

    Has anybody heard about Bent?  It is on NBC with Amanda Peet, it is hilarious but it played 5 or 6 episodes and then nothing.  I googled it and it said not cancelled but without a scheduled episode.  It looks like a lot of NBC shows are still up in the air, do they wait longer than others to renew?

    • http://twitter.com/smaloy Sarah Maloy

      We don’t cover Bent, which is why it’s not on the list, but reports from the NBC conference call this afternoon say that Bent has been cancelled, along with Awake, BFF and Are You There, Chelsea.

      • Dlskin

        Dang, I really liked that show.

  • Erin yang

    How about Castle? :) 

    • http://twitter.com/smaloy Sarah Maloy


  • Lucas Iddings

    What about nbc’s “AWAKE”?????????? I love that show! You should cover it on this site!

    • http://twitter.com/smaloy Sarah Maloy

      No point in covering now, because unfortunately it was cancelled today!

      • Lucas Iddings

        that just ruined my day. . . 

  • ravenclaw1991

    The only ones on this list I care about are Modern Family, Misfits, and Doctor Who. I already knew Doctor Who was filming and I knew about Misfits. I’m so sad that Lauren Socha isn’t returning. First Robert Sheehan leaves after series 2, then Iwan and Antonia finish last series and then Lauren isn’t returning. The only person left from the original cast is Nathan.. Then we have Joseph Gilgun from last series as well :(

  • Elle

    I’m sad about Terra Nova… I loved that show… I wanted to know what that mast head was about!!!

  • Clarinet2357

    white collar???

  • http://imnomuggle.wordpress.com Im_No_Muggle

    The Office has now been officially renewed.

    • http://imnomuggle.wordpress.com Im_No_Muggle

      And so has Parks and Rec
