MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - 7 SEASONS

The final episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were released in August, but its cancellation was not surprising to anyone. For years, their ratings have dipped to the point that many predicted its end. However, it also ended because of a decision from Marvel Entertainment. Sadly, they had seen horrible viewership since Season 5, and it was the right decision this year.

THE WALKING DEAD - 11 SEASONS

‘The Walking Dead’ will be ending its run with the 11th season, which is set to air its 24 episodes over two years. That means that it will actually end in 2022. However, the AMC giant show was officially canceled this year by the network although the universe continues with other shows as well as upcoming films. There’s also an anthology show in the works.

CRIMINAL MINDS - 15 SEASONS

‘Criminal Minds’ ended in February 2020 with its 15th season, although fans still hold hope that there might be another one. However, the creators have stated clearly that it’s over. It was one of the most popular shows on CBS and had steady ratings for 15 years. The finale was also incredibly dramatic, but a proper send-off for a great series.

MAN WITH A PLAN - 4 SEASONS

Sadly, Matt LeBlanc’s ‘Man with a Plan’ ended after airing their 4th season this year. Sadly, the first seven episodes saw a decline in ratings, and it joins several shows that CBS has already canceled this year. Le Blanc played Adams Burns, a man that has to take care of his household when his wife goes back to work.

SUPERGIRL – 6 SEASONS

The show has finally started filming again, but The CW has revealed that its 6th season will be the last. Luckily, there are 20 episodes to look forward to because the show is over. Lead actress Mellisa Benoist tweeted, “I promise we're going to make it one helluva final season." Unfortunately, this announcement leaves the Arrowverse in a pickle, as ‘Arrow’ ended in 2019. It might be the end of the franchise.

SUPERNATURAL - 15 SEASONS

The CW also announced in 2019 that one of its longest-running shows, ‘Supernatural’, was ending with its 15th season. The season started airing again this October, and the final episode is set to be released in November. Sadly, even their loyal fanbase had to admit that their creators were running out of material, and it was time to say goodbye to the Winchester boys.

KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS - 20 SEASONS

In a surprising announcement, the Kardashian giant reality TV show will end with the 20th season. Unfortunately, the realities of 2020 mean that budgets are smaller, and it seems like the family wants to move on. Naturally, fans will still be able to see the family through social media and more. Another reality show might be a possibility later on too.

VIKINGS - 6 SEASONS

The story of Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons is finally coming to a close after six seasons of drama and epic fights. The first half of the season has already aired and fans are waiting for the rest of the episodes to start airing before the end of 2020. Luckily, the universe of ‘Vikings’ is not over as creator Michael Hirst and MGM Television have plans for a spin-off.

BOJACK HORSEMAN - 6 SEASONS

Unfortunately, one of the best animated series and best shows on Netflix has officially ended with its sixth season. It’s the end of an era for the streaming giant as their other longest-running shows, ‘Orange Is the New Black’ and ‘House of Cards’, have ended as well. Netflix produces so much content these days, that it takes a lot for a series to have as many seasons.

CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA - 4 PARTS

This was another surprising announcement from Netflix. After only 3 aired-seasons, fans will have to say goodbye to the teenage witch. The fourth part is set to be released in December 2020.

SCHITT'S CREEK - 6 SEASONS

‘Schitt’s Creek’ ended their run with a huge bang this year, as they swept the 2020 Emmy Awards. Their ratings grew each season on Pop TV when it was their deal with Netflix that definitely gave the show new life. The last episode aired in April, and co-creator Dan Levy explained that it was the right choice for the series.

HOMELAND - 8 SEASONS

Although ‘Homeland’ aired its last episode in 2020, the Showtime series was canceled in 2018. There were several delays in production for Season 8, but the final episode aired in April. It was one of the most-watched shows on the network, and showrunner Alex Gansa thought it was best to end it on a high note. "I am sad to see the journey coming to an end, but it is time,” she said.

VAN HELSING - 5 SEASONS

While ‘Van Helsing’ had a pretty great run on Syfy, but everyone felt that it was time to end it.
