Most shows these days aren’t lucky enough to make it to seven seasons, but even the ones that do are doomed to end. Leading TV networks announced the ending of several hit shows in recent weeks, and these five beloved series ended up on the chopping block.

The Good Doctor

Freddie Highmore spent years playing the young autistic surgeon Shaun Murphy, but he’ll soon say goodbye to this character as The Good Doctor nears its grand finale.

Young Sheldon

Young Sheldon is a huge hit on streaming right now, and CBS could’ve easily kept it going but now felt like the perfect time to end it because we already know what the future holds for Sheldon Cooper.

Station 19

Station 19 took us on quite a journey since being developed as a Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, and its final season will allow us to say goodbye to our favorite group of Seattle firefighters.


Another first responder drama coming to an end this year, S.W.A.T. centered on a highly-skilled sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson solving crimes in his hometown of Los Angeles.


This CBS military drama followed the adventures of the elite Navy SEALs unit, undertaking dangerous missions all around the world, and they’ll embark on their last mission in the upcoming seventh season.
