It’s that time of year again, TV fans. That’s right, network advances are back, which is when avid viewers learn whether or not their favorite shows will return for the next TV season. This year was particularly brutal, as a number of shows were given the ax at this point, creating a veritable bloodbath. Well it’s going on now, like CBS’ Magnum IP is one of the latest to be fired, and two Fox series have also received bad news.
Magnum IP, a reboot of the fan-favorite ’80s drama, was canceled by CBS after a four-season run. Like Deadline notes, of the series removed by the network, the program run by Jay Hernandez was the most established. Other shows removed from the Paramount Global-owned network this year include B Positive and United States of Al (both of which were canned after two seasons) and Good Sam and How do we rideboth of which were in their first seasons.
The powers that be at Fox are just beginning to put together their lineup for the 2022-2023 TV season, but the network has already cut a few freshman shows. our kind of people and Swivel have officially achieved their ends, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In some ways, there were already danger signs for the old series, which was produced by Empire and Star designer Lee Daniels. The drama received a reduced freshman last fall, and that was also the case with another newbie The big jump (which was removed in March). They simply add to the growing list of other TV deals canceled after one season in 2022.
Currently, there are many other series on Fox that face an uncertain future like Mayim Bialik’s sitcom call me kat and other live comedies Welcome to Flatch. Even established dramas the resident, 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star have yet to officially get the green light for more episodes.
It’s also been an incredibly tough year for The CW, which isn’t generally known for cutting so much of its content at once. The fan-favorite network cut a slew of shows this year, including Legends of tomorrow, batman, Dynasty, Noemie, In the dark, The 4400, Roswell, New Mexico, Charm and Legacy (which was part of vampire diary franchise). The creator of the last show in this program, Julie Plec, even went so far as to compare massive programming changes to the “red wedding” from The iron Throne.
With all the moves that have been made so far, it’s a little hard to believe there are still more to come. Viewers are sure to be eagerly awaiting to see if their TV favorites manage to land any spots for the coming year. We’ll see who succeeds and fails to escape CBS’s fate Magnum IP and Fox’s two freshman series.
