This list contains shows whose networks made their cancellation announcements in 2020, even if a show won’t air its final season until 2021. Series like the CW’s Arrow and Netflix’s Fuller House made their respective decisions in 2019.
We’re keeping a running tally on all of the TV shows that have been canceled or announced to be ending in 2020 so far. Some of the latest shows on the chopping block are Netflix’s Spinning Out and Showtime’s Ray Donovan. When a series is abruptly canceled before it’s able to wrap up its story, it could be for a number of reasons: ratings, budget, casting complications, and behind-the-scenes executive decisions we’ll never completely understand.
On the other hand, shows such as Netflix’s The Crown and Amazon’s Bosch have announced in advance when they’re ending, allowing both shows to go out on their own terms and hopefully craft a series finale with a satisfying conclusion. In the case of Bosch, the famous LA-based Detective will end his career on Amazon in 2021 with Season 7, while The Crown will come to an end after its fifth season (likely to air in late 2021), with Imelda Staunton taking over for Olivia Colman as the final version of Queen Elizabeth in Season 5.
