We typically want to deal with optimistic issues firstly of a brand new 12 months, however the reality is that each good present should come to an finish, and we’re about to say goodbye to some actually beloved sequence in 2024. We’ve already misplaced so many exhibits just lately, together with NCIS: Los Angeles and Magnum P.I.
But right here we’re to debate it some extra! Some of the exhibits on this listing are going out on their very own phrases after lengthy, profitable runs. Others are being unceremoniously kicked to the curb as a consequence of low rankings, huge budgets, or departing stars.
One factor all of them have in widespread? Their loss will actually sting.
But one all of them have in widespread is that they are shuffling off the airwaves someday throughout the subsequent 12 months, so be a part of us as we bid farewell to the next sequence from throughout the TV panorama.
We cannot say we’ll miss all of those exhibits, however our hearts exit to the followers of each one among them!
First on the chopping block is the long-running CBS household cop drama Blue Bloods.
You might need realized it was nonetheless on the air, however because the one factor they’ll nonetheless agree on, it is a vital present to your dad and mom. (Your mother, like all mothers, maintains a deep, abiding love for Tom Selleck.)
We jest. As one among TV Fanatic’s largest hits, we all know how a lot this present will probably be missed. It’s one of many few exhibits that constantly will get the story proper, and that is why viewership hasn’t waned.
Blue Bloods will kick off its fourteenth and remaining season starting on February 16. We (and Moms all over the place) will probably be inconsolable.
Bob Hearts Abishola
Another long-running community stalwart that is trying out in ’24 is the beloved CBS sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola.
The present developed a loyal fan base over the course of its five-year run, however as we beforehand reported, the cancellation of Bob Hearts Abishola didn’t come as a shock, as casting shakeups indicated that the sequence was not lengthy for this world.
Comedy sequence have taken a beating in recent times, and we have now to surprise how for much longer the normal sitcom, as we have come to comprehend it, will probably be round.
Bob Hearts Abishola Season 5 is about to premiere on February 12.
A lightweight-hearted drama? A comedy with severe undertones?
No matter what you name it, there was an terrible lot of kicking concerned in Netflix’s Karate Kid sequel sequence Cobra Kai, and now, the present is being kicked to the curb.
If you had advised us 30 years in the past anybody may pull off a revival of this magnitude, including superbly to the historical past whereas exhibiting unbelievable character progress, we’d have laughed. Yet, Cobra Kai is likely one of the most profitable revivals of its form just by honoring what has come earlier than.
Netflix has not but introduced a launch date for the sixth and remaining season of Cobra Kai.
The longest-running Spanish-language scripted sequence on Netflix, Elite is about to finish its eight-season run in 2024.
No launch date for the ultimate episodes has been introduced, however showrunner Carlos Montero has confirmed that filming is accomplished and manufacturing “ended on a excessive word.”
The sequence — which facilities round a gaggle of working-class pals at a tony personal college — grew to become a shock world hit for Netflix when it debuted again in 2018.
The present has modified drastically since its premiere, however we’ll all the time bear in mind how these college students wormed their method into our hearts.
It was a great run for Good Trouble, however the Freeform sequence will name it quits with the conclusion of Good Trouble Season 5B, which premiered in early January.
A by-product of the favored household drama The Fosters, Good Trouble made its father or mother season proud with a profitable run of its personal.
But followers and stars appear to agree that the present has run its course with our reviewer even utilizing the phrase “unwatchable,” albeit solely briefly. It’s actually the top of an period, following these characters from childhood into younger maturity.
Hopefully, this one will exit on a excessive word.
The Handmaid’s Tale
Formerly some of the buzzed-about exhibits on tv, some suppose The Handmaid’s Tale has been limping alongside in a zombified state for the previous two or three years, however we all know higher.
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 was one among its finest, organising the sequence for a satisfying conclusion. Sadly, this adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s spellbinding dystopian novel will come to an finish in 2024 — and it’ll accomplish that below new management.
Showrunner Bruce Miller has stepped apart, and Eric Tuchman and Yahlin Chang will take his place. We can solely think about how that can have an effect on issues, however since Elisabeth Moss is deeply concerned with manufacturing, we’re not too nervous.
Fans may take coronary heart within the information that Miller is already onerous at work on a spin-off sequence, The Testaments, that is additionally based mostly on Atwood’s work. Praise be!
Hulu has not but introduced a launch date, however you may try the whole lot we find out about The Handmaid’s Tale Season 6 within the meantime.
After simply three seasons, everybody’s favourite dino drama is about to go extinct.
Thankfully, community execs have determined to present the present an opportunity to exit in model with a full season that is set to debut on January 9. Unfortunately, we’re getting an awfully truncated season.
La Brea might not have been successful with critics, however its devoted fan base, who’ve been starved for sci-fi content material on broadcast, will definitely miss this tar pit-based oddity.
Hotter than a wool kilt on a summer time’s day, Outlander gained an on the spot cult following when it premiered on Starz in 2014.
The adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s beloved novel targeted on time-traveling nurse Claire and her romance with the dashing Highland warrior Jamie.
The present will come to an finish in 2024, however no premiere date has been confirmed for the ultimate season. We simply hope that as an alternative of the distress that has pervaded the sequence via Outlander Season 6, we’ll see sunshine forward for the beloved characters.
There continues to be a number of the story left to inform, so how they conclude this time-traveling historic masterpiece will probably be how your complete sequence is judged — simply ask the creators of Lost!
Another CBS drama giving its remaining salute in 2024 is SEAL Team.
The long-running navy drama will air its seventh and remaining season in some unspecified time in the future within the 12 months to come back.
Sadly, no premiere date has been introduced, however those that missed out on SEAL Team Season 5 and past have had the prospect to catch it on broadcast, in order that’s one thing.
Worse, the present made the bounce from CBS to Paramount+ in 2022, so longtime followers will want a subscription to observe the ultimate episodes.
Star Trek: Discovery
The sequence that efficiently jump-started the rebirth of the Star Trek franchise on Paramount+ will jettison to a galaxy past one final time.
Captain Michael Burhman won’t have a simple time of it for the final hurrah because the USS Discovery fights a brand new villain with plans to destroy the universe.
Our salvation on this cancellation is that the Star Trek universe lives on in a number of kinds.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 will premiere someday in April 2024.
Grey’s Anatomy continues to be going sturdy, however one other one of many present’s spinoffs is headed for the TV graveyard.
Yes, like Private Practice earlier than it, Station 19 will quickly be coming to an in depth. This one caught us proper between the eyes. As one of many community’s higher-rated sequence and its connection to Grey’s, we thought it was within the clear.
Nope, when ABC revived 9-1-1, all bets had been off.
We’re holding out a sliver of hope that among the finest characters might stick round for recurring arcs on Grey’s. After all, that present may use a jumpstart in viewership. Any long-running program can!
Superman & Lois
Let’s face it. Superman & Lois was doomed from the second The CW was put in the marketplace.
What The CW was and what it is going to be are solely totally different animals, so we have now to face the music — historical past would not dictate the longer term.
The worst a part of this cancellation is that it is the final remaining tie to the Arrowverse, which at one time reigned within the hearts and minds of TV Fanatic readers. Hell, it was an web phenomenon full cease.
Following that disappointment is that Tyler Hoechlin makes a rattling good Superman. Fly excessive, our good friend!
Back within the ’70s, the unique S.W.A.T. bought two seasons totaling lower than 50 episodes. Still, it was an viewers smash that hit when violence on TV was below scrutiny. Cancellation be damned, the sequence has by no means been removed from viewers’ hearts.
If Cobra Kai was a kickass revival, S.W.A.T. is an ass-kicking reboot. It’s well-written, with loads of motion and characters with values they work onerous to uphold.
S.W.A.T. has been on the chopping block greater than as soon as, and with out the devotion of followers and the present’s stars alike going to bat for a correct sendoff, it would by no means have occurred.
S.W.A.T’s remaining season premieres on Friday, February 16, on CBS.
What a debacle this has turned out to be. Yellowstone Season 5 was already half over after we unexpectedly discovered it might trip off into the sundown — with out its main man! What is Yellowstone with out its patriarch, the person who has helped increase and divide a household? We’re about to search out out.
Kevin Costner has departed the present, which positive offers credence to the thought Jamie may kill his adoptive father. It would make sense. He’s already killed greater than as soon as, his beginning father included.
To say we’ll miss Beth and Rip and the bunkhouse characters can be an understatement. Our solely hope is that the attainable Matthew McConaughey-led spinoff will incorporate among the finest Yellowstone has to supply.
But because the OG Yellowstone characters and the actors that painting them deserve their time within the highlight, we’re not holding our breath.
Seriously. How lengthy can a present a couple of mass assassin proceed? Hannibal was one factor, however YOU is a wholly totally different beast.
When even the main man, Penn Badgley, finds the continuation foolish, you understand it is time to say goodbye.
The sequence has had a rare life, although. First airing on Lifetime, Netflix swooped in to reserve it after cancellation.
It’s much more shocking that Netflix gave YOU a further three seasons. Then once more, Dahmer was an viewers and important hit, so homicide and mayhem guidelines on the streamer.
The prequel to The Big Bang Theory can be coming to an finish. The sequence follows the character made well-known by Jim Parsons, who additionally narrates.
The title alone gave away the truth that the present could not proceed eternally. We’ve already seen grownup Sheldon, and we noticed sufficient flashbacks to his younger grownup years to snuff the candle early.
More importantly, viewers agree that the story involves a pure conclusion with the dying of Sheldon’s father, as that units Sheldon on his final path.
Young Sheldon’s remaining season begins airing on February 15, with a finale on May 16, 2024. The finale will probably be an hour lengthy, which is bound to please followers.
That’s a number of exhibits, however we all know it is solely the start of our cancellation journey.

Have we missed something price noting?
