As the broadcast networks finalize their fall TV schedules, many shows are finding out whether they've been renewed for another season or canceled. CBS's S.W.A.T. and ABC's The Conners will be sticking around (though it was a close one for S.W.A.T.), but it's the end of the road for The CW's The Winchesters and Fox's Call Me Kat, to name a few. Streaming platforms are also getting in on the act, with Netflix ordering more helpings of Ginny & Georgia (finally!) and Virgin River, but pulling the plug on a second season of Lockwood & Co.  

Whether you're looking to celebrate more of your favorites or mourn the loss of something on your regular rotation, we're keeping tabs on all the TV shows that were canceled or renewed this month below.
