Is your favorite network TV show renewed, canceled or ‘on the bubble’? Our 2023 status report

Which of your favorite shows is a lock to return, and which is destined for cancellation? 

Sure, hits like "Abbott Elementary" and "NCIS" will be back for new seasons, along with freshmen series including remakes of "Night Court," "Quantum Leap" and "Magnum, P.I." and new series like "Fire Country" and "Will Trent."

Meanwhile, long-running favorites "The Blacklist," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "The Goldbergs" and "Riverdale" are ending their runs, along with "A Million Little Things" and two medical dramas, "New Amsterdam" and "The Resident."

But other sitcoms and dramas – from "The Good Doctor" to "S.W.A.T."  to  "9-1-1," are endangered, hovering "on the bubble" between renewal and cancellation. Networks are weighing their fates as they ready potential replacements and new fall schedules they'll announce in mid-May. 

USA TODAY's 26th annual Save Our Shows poll asked you to weigh in on which you'd like saved – and which dropped – as the networks set their 2023-24 schedules. Fox's "9-1-1" won the poll, but was canceled by Fox only to be snapped up by ABC, whose sibling studio owns the series. ABC's "The Good Doctor" and "Alaska Daily" were behind, followed by CBS' "S.W.A.T.," which was canceled but then uncanceled for 13 final episodes.

Here's our status update for every series, grouped by those already renewed or highly likely to return; those canceled or on death's door; and those hovering somewhere in between.
