    • It is being reported that CBS has cancelled Angel From Hell after just five episodes. The freshman comedy, which starred Jane Lynch, drew modest ratings in its Thursday night time slot, but ultimately fell short of expectations. Beginning February 18, new episodes of 2 Broke Girls will be taking over on Thursdays at 9:30pm. Until then, a repeat of The Big Bang Theory will air in its place this week.
    • Showtime announced that Episodes will be concluding its run after its upcoming fifth season. The Matt LeBlanc comedy will be signing off when many expected it to, as the series creators have previously stated that they have always had a 5-season plan for the show. Production on the final seven episodes - down from the originally-announced nine - is set to begin next week. Look for the final season to premiere in 2017.

The freshman spin-off will join the already-renewed Chicago Fire and Chicago PD in returning for the 2016-2017 television season. Fans of the Chicago series can also look forward to a fourth entry in the franchise, titled Chicago Law, that was recently put into development. Along with picking up Chicago Med for a sophomore season, the network also extended its relationship with producer Dick Wolf today with a new 5-year deal that will keep him at NBCUniversal through 2020.

    • Netflix announced today that House of Cards has been renewed for a fifth season. The veteran political drama, which is the streaming service's first-ever original series, received the good news ahead of its fourth season premiere, which is set for early March. Season 5 of House of Cards will air in 2017, and for the first time the show will be without its creator, Beau Willimon, who is departing after four seasons. Willimon also acted as an executive producer and showrunner of the acclaimed series, which will now be searching for a suitable replacement to helm the show going forward.
    • Fox is making some changes to its prime time schedule, moving new entry Second Chance to Friday nights. The freshman drama premiered earlier this month, airing two low-rated episodes in the post-American Idol Wednesday night time slot.

    • Netflix announced today that Marvel's Jessica Jones has been renewed for a second season. The freshman superhero drama enjoyed a strong first season release late last year that was met with critical acclaim, making it another instant hit for the streaming service.

No premiere date has been set for Season 2 of Jessica Jones, though we do know that another 13 episodes have been ordered, matching its Season 1 output.
    • Though always planned as a limited series, NBC confirmed today that Heroes Reborn will be ending its run after one season. The Tim Kring superhero drama, which acted as a revival of the once-popular, previously-cancelled Heroes, premiered as part of the network's 2015 fall schedule for a 13-episode stint. The reboot didn't do much to renew viewer interest in the franchise, however, and its lackluster ratings on Thursday nights reflected that. One would imagine that if Reborn managed to draw a sizable audience, NBC might have explored possibilities to bring the show back for further installments. But as it stands now, the network says no more incarnations are planned for the foreseeable future. Heroes Reborn airs its series finale on Thursday, January 21.
    • Showtime announced today that Shameless has been renewed for a seventh season. The long-running drama is still going strong, with its recent Season 6 premiere episode ranking as its most-watched season premiere ever. Season 7 of Shameless will air in 2017, and will once again run for its typical 12 episodes.
