ABC Makes the No-Brainer Decision to Renew The Bachelor and DWTS

And we got confirmation of two more cancellations we knew were coming

Tim Surette

ABC's reality shows aren't going anywhere. According to Deadline, the network renewed Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor and Shark Tank on a busy Thursday, which should come as a surprise to no one.

Dancing with the Stars will return for Cycles 25 and 26, The Bachelor will be back for Season 22 and Shark Tank gets a ninth season. Since ABC also picked up American Idol in a bidding war, expect lots of reality television on the Alphabet.

ABC also canceled the dramas Convictionand Notorious, which was practically a done deal. Hayley Atwell's legal drama Conviction was considered done after its 13 episodes, while Piper Perabo's drama about the symbiotic relationship between a defense attorney and a news producer was trimmed from 13 episodes to nine episodes and quietly forgotten about.

What's renewed? What's canceled? Here's the 2016-2017 TV scorecard

ABC is expected to announce its 2017-2018 schedule on Tuesday, May 16.
