2013 TV Finale & Show Renewal Guide

2013 TV Finale & Show Renewal Guide

Hello fellow TV fans! It’s May, which means two things – Sweeps (finale time!) and Network Upfronts (the last of the renewal and cancellation announcements).

While some shows have come to an early end, May Sweeps is just getting start, which means there is plenty of drama, laughs, guest stars, plot twists, character deaths, weddings, and cliffhangers ahead. Here’s a handy calendar of TV finale dates for all of your favorite cable and broadcast shows concluding in the coming weeks.

Is Your Show Renewed or Cancelled?

So your favorite shows are wrapping up for the current TV season, but will this year be its last? Most renewal and cancellation announcements have already been made, but if you’re like me and waiting to hear the final verdict on a few shows, here’s a couple of important dates to keep in mind.

According to TVByTheNumbers.com, here’s the schedule for the 2013 Broadcast Network Upfront Meetings:

May 13, 2013 NBC Morning
May 13, 2013 FOX Afternoon
May 14, 2013 Univision Morning
May 14, 2013 ABC Afternoon
May 15, 2013 CBS Afternoon
May 16, 2013 The CW Morning

Of course there are always some exceptions, or funky situations (given how late Hannibal premiered I don’t expect NBC to have a decision by May 13th), but for the most part you ought to the know the fate of your shows by these dates.

So happy viewing, and may the odds be ever in your favor. My fingers are crossed for Happy EndingsParks and Recreation, Hannibal, and Nikita – what are you hoping will live to see another season?
