Which Series Are Still On The Bubble?
Today was a cancellation bloodbath of series led by The CW, CBS and NBC which saw 15 series cancelled (The CW’s Charmed, Dynasty, Legacies, Roswell, New Mexico, In The Dark, Naomi and 4400; CBS’s Magnum P.I., Good Sam, United States of Al, B Positive and How We Roll; NBC’s The Endgame, Kenan and Mr. Mayor) and only four renewed (The CW’s All American: Homecoming and NBC’s American Auto, Grand Crew and Young Rock). The CW announced three new series for next season including Gotham Knights, Walker: Independence and The Winchesters, along with three ordered at CBS including Fire Country, East New York and So Help Me Todd.
