The vampire spin-off will say goodbye next summer.
The endgame has been set for The Originals. As many had been expecting, the Vampire Diaries spin-off will be concluding its run after its upcoming fifth season. The announcement was made today by creator Julie Plec, who broke the news on Twitter with a goodbye message to the show's fans.
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.
Look for the farewell season of The Originals in the midseason of 2017-2018.

The comedy will return in 2018.
HBO announced today that Silicon Valley has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes one month ahead of the veteran comedy's fourth-season finale on June 25. Created by Mike Judge, the half-hour series boasts a solid fanbase along with multiple award wins over the years.
Partially inspired by Judge's experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late '80s, the comedy follows the lives of a group of high tech workers in the Palo Alto area of California. While this group of social outcasts may be the most qualified to succeed in this modern environment, they are not necessarily capable of handling the success.
Look for Season 5 of Silicon Valley in 2018.

Look for Season 7 of Veep in 2018.

The popular franchise loses its latest entry.
Word is out this evening that Chicago Justice has been cancelled after its first season. The mid-season legal drama premiered in March as the fourth and most-recent entry in the hit Chicago franchise, but soft ratings on Sunday nights did not make a compelling case for a pickup.
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. The remaining three entries - Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med - were all recently renewed for 2017-2018 and will be returning for Season 6, Season 5, and Season 3 respectively

The comedy will return for Season 2.
NBC announced today that Trial & Error has been renewed for a second season. The comedy premiered this past March, where it garnered generally positive reviews and fared reasonably well ratings-wise as a mid-season performer.
Shot in a mockumentary style, the half-hour series follows an eager New York City lawyer sent to a small Southern town for his first big case. After settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop, it soon becomes apparent that winning his first big case will not be as easy as he thought, especially when his client has a way of making himself look guilty.
The network has ordered 10 new episodes for Season 2 of Trial & Error, down slightly from the 13 it aired in Season 1. With the main court case its first season all wrapped up, a brand new case will be forthcoming in its sophomore run, which will return in the midseason of 2017-2018.

The FBI drama will return with a shortened run.
There is some good news to announce for Quantico fans this evening, as ABC has renewed the drama for a third season. The show was sitting firmly on the bubble as of late due to its ratings taking a hit during its sophomore run.
Season 3 will come with a couple of changes in the form of a new showrunner as well a lowered episode count. Creator Josh Safran will be stepping away from the series going forward, with a replacement at the helm to be named at a later date. He will reportedly still be available as a consultant.
As for the number of episodes, ABC has ordered 13 for 2017-2018, down from the 22 the show received in Seasons 1 and 2.
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.

Eight last episodes will conclude the series.
It was announced today that Fox has renewed New Girl for a seventh and final season. The Zooey Deschanel-led comedy has had a successful run for the network, first as a breakout hit in 2011 and then as a reliable utility player during its later years, where it still managed to rank as Fox's highest-rated live-action comedy.
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.

The detective drama will return in 2017-2018.
It's better late than never for Elementary. It is being reported that CBS has renewed the veteran drama for a sixth season. There had been speculation the network might be ending the series after it was left out of renewal talks back in March.
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.

The comedy will not return for Season 7.
It is being reported that after six seasons and exactly 100 episodes, Freeform has cancelled Baby Daddy. The news comes just two weeks ahead of the comedy's current season ender, which will now act as its series finale. The move may not have been completely unexpected, as word is the May 22 episode was written in a way that could conclude either the season or the entire series.
The veteran comedy was a top performer for the network over the course of its run, ranking as cable television's #1 series in its time slot among key demographics. The show also recently took home a People's Choice Award for favorite cable TV comedy.
