One of the shows listed, Good Girls Revolt, from Amazon, had the decision reversed and will get a second season. It was canceled by the Amazon exec that was fired for sexual harassment. Also, Veep wasn’t “cancelled,” per se — the show runners (and Julia Louis Dreyfus) decided to end the show.
As with Veep, Black Sails and Vice Principals weren't really cancelled, per se. Their story lines were finished.
I remember back when all of the new shows on TV could be summarized in one issue of TV Guide (the Fall Preview special). I used to read that issue quite thoroughly as a kid, and pretty much being aware of every show on TV, whether I actually watched it or not.
Things were a lot simpler when we only had three channels.Not necessarily better, but certainly simpler.I remember how exciting it was to go through TV Guide's previews of all the upcoming shows for the new year, and then to catch the premieres of the ones that seemed interesting.Although I bathe those times in the amber glow of nostalgia, that whole ritual seems quaint now, as if we somehow lived though Victorian England, but with TVs.
