Renewals and Painful Cancellations: TV shows face uncertain fate in January

Los Angeles, California – As TV networks make decisions about the fate of our beloved shows in the new year, the anticipation and anxiety among viewers begin to build. While some series receive the good news of renewal, others face the disappointment of cancellation. Fortunately, TV Guide is here to keep us informed about the latest developments. This January has brought a mix of both good and bad news for fans.

On the positive side, the popular talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show,” will continue to grace our screens, ensuring that we start our day on a delightful note. Additionally, Apple TV+ has renewed “Slow Horses” for a fifth season, keeping fans of the spy series on the edge of their seats. MTV has also green-lit the return of two reality series, providing a little something for those who enjoy unscripted entertainment.

However, the start of the year has also brought painful cancellations. Max announced the back-to-back cancellations of “Julia” and “Our Flag Means Death,” leaving fans disappointed and longing for more. Similarly, Starz has decided not to move forward with a third season of “Minx,” despite having rescued it from cancellation at Max.

As television enthusiasts, it’s natural for us to experience a mix of emotions when we learn about the fate of our favorite shows. TV Guide has compiled a comprehensive list of all the shows that have been either canceled or renewed this month, allowing us to celebrate or mourn accordingly.

In terms of cancellations, “Julia” will not return for a third season. This series, inspired by the iconic Julia Child, will be missed by fans who appreciated its culinary charm. Another casualty is “Our Flag Means Death,” a swashbuckling romantic comedy series featuring Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby. Unfortunately, it will not be returning for a third season, leaving fans in search of another adventure.

“Minx,” a ’70s-set comedy starring Jake Johnson and Ophelia Lovibond, is another casualty of the month. Although Starz gave it a second chance after its initial cancellation, the network has decided against continuing the series, leaving fans without their dose of ’70s humor.

On the renewal front, “The Drew Barrymore Show” is bringing more laughs and captivating interviews to our screens as it embarks on its fifth season. Fans of Chuck Lorre’s comedy “Bookie” can also rejoice, as it is doubling down with a second season.

MTV is keeping us entertained with the return of two shows. “Catfish: The TV Show” will dive back into the perils of online dating in its ninth season, while “Help! I’m in a Secret Relationship!” will unveil more hidden love affairs in its third season.

Finally, the misfits of Slough House in “Slow Horses” will be back for a fifth season, offering fans of the spy genre another thrilling installment. Season 4 is set to premiere in late 2024, ensuring that viewers stay hooked and hungry for more espionage.
