Cancellation Watch: When Will We Know if Shows Like Agents of SHIELD, The 100, Limitless, and Grimm Will Get Cancelled or Renewed? Plus the Weekly Ratings Roundup

Agents_of_S.H.I.E.L.D._season_3_cancelledThe Upfronts: In last week’s Tuesday post, I looked at several sci fi / fantasy shows that are certain to get renewed as well as some that appear to have a firm date with the Network Executioner in their future.  But I know that many sci fi fans want to know when we will hear the final word on all of this season’s genre entries, especially bubble shows like Agents of SHIELD, Limitless, iZombie and more.  The fact is that an announcement could come at anytime like it did for Angel from Hell a couple of weeks ago.  But the networks have been very tight-lipped about cancellations of late, and even though shows like Minority Report and Second Chance are for all practical purposes cancelled, no official word has been given on their fate.  There is a deadline, though, that the networks face when they have to finally reveal their plans for the shows currently on their schedules.  That’s the Upfronts that come around every year when the networks make their presentations to the advertisers.  This is when they announce their schedules for the upcoming season and we find out for certain which shows will survive into another year and which ones get ushered off the schedule by the Network Executioner.  Read the full article at our partner site CancelledSciFi.com.
