April is the month of rebirth as spring brings renewals of flowers, baby animals, and warm weather, but what about television? Which television shows will burst through the soil with new life, and which will be forever buried? Our list of all the canceled and renewed shows in April will tell you, as we're keeping track of what's returning and what's never coming back. April has already brought some of the biggest renewals of 2024: ABC's 9-1-1, just weeks after its debut on the network, was thrown a lifeline and will return for Season 8 next year; Grey's Anatomy is scrubbing in for Season 21; and The Rookie will be back for Season 7. CBS has also had a big month, with renewals of ElsbethNCISThe Neighborhood, all three FBI series, and S.W.A.T. — yes, the same S.W.A.T. that was already canceled once and then brought back for what was supposed to be its final season. Apple TV+'s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters and For All Mankind have also been renewed, and so has Paramount+'s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Netflix renewed its hit fantasy series The Witcher for a fifth and final season, and Prime Video announced the renewal of the video game adaptation Fallout.

But it's bad news for Star Trek: Lower Decks, which will end with its fifth season, as well as NBC's Quantum Leap, which has been canceled after two seasons. CBS also dropped the axe on CSI: Vegas and So Help Me Todd.

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 shows that have been canceled or renewed this month below.
