All the TV Shows That Have Been Canceled (or Are Coming to an End) in 2019
This year has been full of exceptional TV shows, but not every network has been kind to them. Alas, with 2019 coming to a close, we've seen ABC, Netflix, Amazon, CBS, and more networks give series after series the boot. While we've known for quite some time that certain beloved series would be wrapping up this year — The Big Bang Theory, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend — other announcements admittedly caught us by surprise.
