SCI-FI TV ROUND UP

SFX - - Red Alert -

It’s the time of year when US net­work ex­ecs earn their money, mak­ing a de­ci­sion on which shows will live and die. Here’s the news…

New shows awarded a precious green light in­clude “X-Men-in­spired se­ries that isn’t Le­gion” The Gifted, Seth MacFar­lane’s Star Trek spoof The Orville, the lat­est ad­di­tion to the Ar­row­verse, Black Light­ning, and spir­i­tual com­edy Ghosted.

The grim reaper falls on Fre­quency, Pow­er­less, mak­ing His­tory and Son Of Zorn, all can­celled af­ter just one sea­son. Time­less was briefly axed, but sub­se­quently re­newed for a sec­ond year af­ter fan out­cry.

And all of the fol­low­ing shows are back for more (sea­son num­ber in brack­ets): Lu­cifer (3), The Ex­or­cist (2), Once Upon A Time (7), Gotham (4), The Last man On Earth (4), The Flash (4), Ar­row (6), Su­per­girl (3), Leg­ends Of Tomorrow (3), Agents Of SHIELD (5), iZom­bie (4), The 100 (5) and Su­per­nat­u­ral (13!).
