Not everything can be a hit. In fact, very few TV shows can, which then leaves networks and streaming services with the decision of which non-hits to keep and which ones to let go.

This is the place for the ones that were let go. Below is a list of TV shows canceled during the 2016-17 season. It does not (yet) include shows like “Conviction” or “Pure Genius” whose networks have signaled they aren’t ordering more episodes but which aren’t technically canceled yet.
