The 2015-2016 TV season is wrapping up, and the networks have announced which shows are returning, which are canceled, and also what new programs to expect for 2016-2017. Gossip Cop has rounded up all the small screen news below, so find out if your beloved series will live on for another season and what to clear space for on the DVR.

ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and The CW all made a slew of scheduling announcements over the past few days, great for some fans and heartbreaking for others. Returning ABC favorites include “Scandal,” “Once Upon a Time” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” At NBC, “Shades of Blue,” “Grimm” and all three Chicago shows, “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” will be back, and viewers can now look forward to “Chicago Justice,” too.

CBS shows coming back include “The Big Bang Theory,” “2 Broke Girls” and “Elementary.” On FOX, viewers will continue to enjoy “Empire,” “Scream Queens” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” The CW has “Supernatural,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Flash” still on its slate, as well as “Supergirl,” which is switching from CBS to the superhero-friendly CW.

But fans of “Castle” and “Nashville” learned this week that their shows have been nixed. Other programs getting axed include “Telenovela,” “Undateable” and “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” Meanwhile, the 2016-2017 TV season will also host a variety of exciting new series.

“24: Legacy,” a “24” spin-off, with Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto, and Jimmy Smits, will air on FOX. NBC will also get a spin-off with “The Blacklist: Redemption,” starring Ryan Eggold and Famke Janssen. Hayley Atwell is leaving behind “Agent Carter” for ABC’s “Conviction.” And on CBS, Katherine Heigl has a starring turn on “Doubt.” Check out the entire list of network renewals, cancellations, and new shows below!
