This holiday season, Old Saint Television wrapped up renewals of some of our favorite television shows and stuffed them in our stockings. In a nice change of pace after a tough year, TV show renewals outpaced cancellations by a considerable margin in December. HBO wrapped up the month with good news for The Gilded Age fans, Apple TV+ renewed fellow period piece The Buccaneers, and Netflix renewed Love Is Blind, Blue Eye Samurai, Squid Game: The Challenge, and My Life With the Walter Boys. Meanwhile, Prime Video reached for more Reacher and Good Omens.

Still, a few of our favorites did get coal. What We Do in the Shadows is going to the permanent afterlife after Season 6, Curb Your Enthusiasm will sign off after its upcoming twelfth season on HBO, Warrior went down swinging on Max, Station 19 is ending after its upcoming seventh season on ABC, and Freeform is ending two of its popular scripted series, Good Trouble and Cruel Summer.

Whether you're looking to celebrate more of your favorites or mourn the loss of something on your regular rotation, we rounded up all the TV shows that were canceled or renewed in December below.
