Agents of Shield. Skye.

At least some good news.

++ Elementary got renewed for a seventh season. I was legitimately surprised by this news, since it's been speculated that this season, which premiered much later than previous seasons, would be its last. I'm happy it's not, though, because I adore Joan and Sherlock's relationship on this show.

++ Agents of SHIELD was another pleasant surprise since it's been renewed for a sixth season. Some were thinking that this might be the last season, since it was reported a while ago that the S5 finale could very well act like a series finale should the show not get renewed, so they were kind of prepared for the possibility regardless (which is what most shows should do, imho, always treat a season like it'll be the last one to at least feel somewhat completed). For me, while it's not always perfect, Agents of SHIELD has been a show that has only gotten stronger and better with each season, and despite the contract deal made with Marvel to coincide with the MCU which prevents them from doing certain things they want to do to progress the story at their own pace, they still manage to pull it off. The show is highly rated, having an overall 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and S5 alone is currently at 100%. So, it's doing something right with the way its orchestrating the storylines and character moments. Personally, I'm just happy to continue watching Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson being amazing on my screen for another season.

++ Along with some other renewal news, Bull (CBS) was renewed for a third season some while ago, and recently Siren (Freeform) was picked up for a second season. Aside from that, there hasn't been anything else worthwhile to mention in regards to renewals or cancellations, as far as I can tell. All the important announcements, at least regarding my shows, have already been reported. However, this year was particularly brutal when it came to cancellation announcements. I mean, you can say that about pretty much every year with upfronts depending on what you watch, but this year seemed like a massive bloodbath for certain networks.

++ And when it comes to newer upcoming shows and honestly, aside from the announcement of Guillermo del Toro's new horror anthology series which I'm very enthusiastically curious about, nothing else from the announcements has caught my eye or remotely interested me.
