As they say in TV showbiz, all good things must come to an end. In this case, fans have been forced to bid adieu to several beloved TV series (“The Vampire Diaries“, “Pretty Little Liars”, “Girls”, “Bates Motel”) already this year.

The positive takeaway is this: Networks are now cancelling shows in a less shocking manner.

Many cancelled series are given one last hurrah to tie up loose ends. Not only do the creative team get to give these popular characters a proper send-off but invested fans will also be emotionally prepared. To help you out, here’s a handy list of shows that are airing their season finales soon:


1. “New Girl” (Season 7)

  • Premiere Date: TBA
  • Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone

It has been a roller-coaster ride for “New Girl”. From being a shoe in for a 13-episode final season, it was then on a brink of cancellation. Fox ultimately decided to commission an 8-episode farewell season. Season 7 will pick up 3 years after the events of season 6. Meanwhile, Deadline reported that the season finale will feature “major milestones for all main characters over the period of 1 year, including a big one in the series finale”.

2. “Orphan Black” (Season 4)

  • Premiere Date: Currently showing
  • Cast: Tatiana Maslany, Ari Millen, Kristian Bruun, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Dylan Bruce, and Jordan Gavaris

How ironic is it that several months after it was confirmed that “Orphan Black” would conclude, actress Tatiana Maslany finally won a well-deserved Emmy for playing Sarah Manning and her multiple “sestra” clones. Although the sci-fi series is not a huge ratings bringer, it has accumulated an avid following throughout the years. Called “the final trip”, the journey gets bloody with betrayals as every sestra is in a dire situation.

3. “Sense8” (Season 2)

  • Premiere Date: 2018
  • Cast: Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, and Brian J. Smith

“Sense8” is essentially about 8 individuals who are gifted with a psychic and empathetic link. Together, they are able to share skills and secrets with each other through their emotional and mental connection. Not long after season 2 aired, Netflix gave the show the axe. Thanks to fans’ protests, the network agreed to give “Sense8” a last-minute gift in the form of a 2-hour special that will debut in 2018. We’ll take what we can get 😉

4. “The Strain” (Season 4)

  • Cast: Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Miguel Gomez, Richard Sammel, and Max Charles

The final season. The final fight. After a nuclear apocalypse, can humankind defeat the vampiric strigoi? The end of this horror series centres on survival now that the world has fallen into darkness and the strigoi has taken over a global nuclear apocalypse. Most of the human population are now forced to work for the strigoi, operating with a single understanding — collaborate or die.

5. “The Mindy Project” (Season 6)

  • Premiere Date: 12th September 2017
  • Cast: Mindy Kaling, Ike Barinholtz, Ed Weeks, Xosha Roquemore, Beth Grant, and Fortune Feimster

It’s been 5 years since Mindy Kaling’s rom-com show first debuted in 2012 on Fox. “What’s weird is, Mindy is married at the end of the season 5 finale but she has never been married in the series, so that’s incredibly fun for a character who’s been obsessed with (marriage) and has come close many times, and seeing her disavow it for a while after her disastrous breakup with who she thought was her soulmate. And now she’s married! The final season is the final time — it’s the best time — to confront what that reality is for her,” Kaling told Entertainment Weekly.

We started this series when she was single, and now she’s married and has a kid and she has a stepdaughter and it kind of just felt like (a few) more episodes was all we needed to wind this down,” she added.

6. “Episodes” (Season 5)

  • Premiere Date: 20th August 2017
  • Cast: Matt LeBlanc, Stephen Mangan, Tamsin Greig, John Pankow, Kathleen Rose Perkins, and Mircea Monroe

This was a pleasant surprise! Although season 4 concluded in 2015, Showtime announced that “Episodes” will return for its 5th and final season later this month. A good amount of time has passed and Matt LeBlanc’s game show is now a runaway hit. Sadly, he’s now only thought of as a game show host, while his former career as a successful actor has been completely forgotten. “Episodes” season 5 will consist of 7 episodes.

7. “The Originals” (Season 5)

  • Premiere Date: 2018
  • Cast: Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood, and Riley Voelkel.

Last month, creator and show runner Julie Plec announced that the forthcoming “The Originals” season 5 will be its last. This comes after “The Vampire Diaries” sang its swan song after an 8-year run. The good news is, there is a potential spin-off series currently in the works that connects “The Originals” and “The Vampire Diaries”. The season finale for “The Originals” will continue to focus on Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall-Kenner’s daughter, Hope, who is called a tribrid (she possesses genes of a witch, werewolf and vampire).

8. “Teen Wolf” (Season 6)

  • Premiere Date: Currently showing
  • Cast: Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Shelley Hennig, and Arden Cho

Following years of supernatural drama, MTV has decided to take a silver bullet and aim it at the heart of its hit show, “Teen Wolf”. The season finale will see Scott, Stiles, Lydia, and the rest of the gang as they face off against The Wild Hunt. One thing we know for sure: it’s going to be one hell of an emotional season.
