While never the breakout hit that its predecessor once was, The Originals has been able to draw a consistent level of viewership over the course of its run as a companion to The Vampire Diaries. But with the flagship series signing off earlier this year, it became more apparent that The Originals was nearing the end of its time as well.
The series follows Klaus from The Vampire Diaries and his clan, who are part of the original vampire family in New Orleans. One thousand years after they pledged to always remain together, family bonds are starting to break. With the passing of time, tensions have risen and tragedy has taken its toll, with the hunger for power corrupting its members.

The fourth entry in the franchise, Chicago Justice could have been a case of one too many shows under the same umbrella. Its viewership, while not terrible, was the lowest among its franchise-mates.

Quantico came onto the scene in 2015 with successful debut run and quickly became the #1 broadcast series on Sunday nights among adults 18-49. Its buzz quieted down somewhat by the end of its first season, but its numbers still warranted a sophomore pickup. Season 2 saw its viewership slip further, and a move from Sundays to Mondays did little to change its fortunes. Still, the series will be back for at least one more season with a likely premiere in the fall.
Knowing the end was certainly happening sooner than later, showrunners smartly wrapped up Season 6 in a way that could serve as a series ender if need be. But with today's pickup for 2017-2018, the show now has eight last episodes to properly conclude the series.
While its ratings have dipped in recent years, Elementary has been an overall reliable entry in the network's Sunday night lineup. The fact that it is wholly owned by CBS likely helped secure its pickup for the 2017-2018 season, as it is said to continue to do well financially.
