It's that time of year again, folks.  
Yep, it's that time of year where announcements for the cancellation/renewal of shows, and some are more disappointing than others. Unfortunately, Agent Carter and Galavant have been cancelled. The latter I'm not surprised, considering I think even they were surprised that it gained a lot of popularity after the first season (which I thought was going to be more of a limited series rather than something ongoing), and even had a meta song in the finale. So even though I'll miss how fun and hilariously entertaining it was, the show was wrapped up quite nicely. Agent Carter, on the other hand, deserved a third season because I was hoping they would get into more about Peggy developing SHIELD and everything in relation to that. In addition to that, Marvel's Most Wanted, the Agents of Shield spin-off focusing on Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter, has also not been picked up to go to series. It's ridiculous considering that they keep flip-flopping on it, since it was first announced earlier last year before being vetoed by the network, but then they took back their initial statement and it was a go, so much that this season of Agents of Shield they gave the characters an emotional sendoff, only for their spin-off to be cancelled before it even began. I guess they'll have to bring them back somehow.

Supergirl has officially been renewed for a second season, however it'll be moving from CBS to the CW. I'm on the fence of this decision, considering that this news means that there will be budget cuts and possibly actors/characters being cut as well, and I'm wary about how CW handles their shows. However, someone wrote a very good analysis on this particular decision and the overall aspect of television networks in general, which I found rather interesting.

Castle has been cancelled, which would be sad but due to the behind-the-scenes mess it's actually more of a relief. It's kind of awkwardly sad to admit, but you know, they dug their own graves by doing what they did. Though unfortunately, Sleepy Hollow didn't learn their lesson since it has been renewed for a fourth season. Just, the sheer audacity of them thinking that the show is worth anything without Abbie Mills, who was the main character and co-lead.

And apparently, CBS passed on the updated Nancy Drew series (with Sarah Shahi) because, guess what? It had too many women in it. Sexism at its finest, ladies and gentlemen.

It's a combination of being a blessing and a curse, since it's true that the CW doesn't operate the way other networks do and cancel shows if they under-perform, ratings-wise, considering they recently renewed all of their shows no matter where they were on that scale, allowing certain shows to have their chance to shine which wouldn't be possible on bigger networks. However, the longer a show continues on the more likely it'll basically lose the audience. I mean, this is true for any show no matter what network, but I hope it doesn't happen with Supergirl and the people running the show are smart about the story they're telling and when the appropriate time to end it before the network milks them dry like some of their other programs.
