2014-2015 Early Renewals

We're getting back into that time of year again! With just about two months until the 2014-2015 broadcast upfronts, some networks have already begun announcing early renewals for the upcoming season. Click below to see which shows will continue to grace your television sets (and computer screens, tablets, phones, or whatever complicated means by which you watch TV now) through next year. (Updated March 19)


Blue Bloods
Criminal Minds
The Good Wife
Hawaii Five-0
NCIS: Los Angeles
Person of Interest

2 Broke Girls
The Big Bang Theory
Mike & Molly
The Millers
Two and a Half Men

The Amazing Race
Undercover Boss

Notes: There are rumors circulating that Two and a Half Men's renewal is for a shortened, final season. Survivor was previously picked up for two cycles, so its renewal is not technically "news." The Big Bang Theory's renewal was actually for three seasons, so it will remain on CBS until at least 2017, the end of its tenth season. 60 Minutes and 48 Hours will also continue airing next season.

The only CBS shows currently airing (or recently ended) which have not been renewed are Hostages, Intelligence, The Mentalist, and The Crazy Ones.


The Originals
The Vampire Diaries


The Following
Sleepy Hollow

Bob's Burgers
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
The Mindy Project
New Girl
The Simpsons

MasterChef Junior

Notes: Although it will not air on Fox after its current season, American Dad was renewed and will move to TBS beginning in the fall of 2014. Glee's renewal last year was for two seasons, and the upcoming sixth (airing 2014-2015) will be its last. MasterChef Junior was renewed for two seasons. Family Guy has not yet been renewed for a new production cycle but will likely have enough already-produced episodes to air at least through the end of 2014.

Raising Hope and The X Factor have both been confirmed as canceled by Fox.


The Blacklist
Chicago Fire
Chicago P.D.

Parks & Recreation

The Biggest Loser
The Celebrity Apprentice
The Voice

Notes: NBC is also reviving Heroes, which was canceled in 2010, for a 13-episode fifth season to air in 2014-2015.
