Renewed, canceled or on the bubble

Which of your favorite shows is a lock to return, and which is destined for cancellation?

Major broadcast networks are weighing the fates of two dozen endangered sitcoms and dramas, hovering “on the bubble” between renewal and cancellation, as they ready potential replacements and new fall schedules they’ll announce in mid-May.

Once again, USA TODAY’s 25th annual Save Our Shows poll asks you to weigh in on which you’d like saved – and which dropped – as the networks set their 2022-23 schedules. Some, including ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and critically acclaimed freshman sitcom “Abbott Elementary,” have already been renewed, while “Blackish” and NBC’s “This Is Us” are nearing the finish line after long runs.

But 24 other shows are in limbo, awaiting their fates, from “Magnum PI” to “Young Rock” and “Batwoman.”

Here’s our status update for every current series, grouped by those already renewed or highly likely to return; those canceled or on death’s door; and those hovering somewhere in between.

(Excluded are CBS comedy “How We Roll,” which premiered March 31, and CW’s “In the Dark,” “Stargirl” and “Roswell, NM,” all beginning new seasons this summer.)
