Cyber Week: Find the Best Cyber Deals

The Fall TV season is here. Find out if your favorite TV Show is coming back or has been cancelled.

The rise of streaming video is pushing TV networks to keep their TV Show line up as attractive as possible. Netflix and Amazon Prime are having extreme success with their original content. The fall TV season is important for TV networks to gain viewership. TV shows not delivering on ratings are removed to make room for new shows.

Network executives have always been notoriously brutal on television show cancellations, especially new shows. They have to make major decisions based on viewers, target demographics, and social media usage. Some channels will keep shows that have had a long tenure, allowing them to wrap up in a season or two. So which shows are getting the honor of a final season? Which shows were cancelled right away?

This year there is a strong crop of new shows. In fact, many more are expected to last at least another season than there will be cancelled. However, this is also the year that we are going to say goodbye to some of our old favorites, like Girls, Orphan Black, and The Vampire Diaries.

Take a look below to see the fate of your favorite 2016 TV shows.
