There’s nothing better after a long day at work than curling up on the couch with a bag of microwave popcorn and your favorite show on the television. Shows bring us comfort, which is why it’s always upsetting when a favorite series gets canceled.
Networks like Disney’s ABC decide to keep or cancel a show based on a lot of factors, including viewership rates, popularity with the times, and, of course, whether the show is actually making any money. If your show is canceled, don’t be too down, as there might be a spinoff or reboot in the near future. After all, it’s all about bringing in revenue and the entertainment business has that down to a fine art.
Here, we’ll tell you the status of your favorite shows—namely, whether they’ve been renewed or canceled, plus just how much the stars earn, how some shows have production costs upward of $1 million per episode, and whether these factors led to the show’s untimely demise. Read on to find out the status of your screen gem.
