Axed in 2016

In 2016 we said goodbye to another roll call of shows, old and new, hits and misses -including 26 years of Saturday Disney (pictured).

We also bid farewell to long-running shows that had confirmed their endings in 2015, including American Idol, Downton Abbey, The Mentalist and the last QI with Stephen Fry as host.

And we finally got that last ever episode of Medium from TEN. Only took 6 years -something Alison DuBois never saw comin’….

The majority on this list are US titles where networks sensibly let fans know if a show is returning or not. In Australia there is a remarkable tendency to say “no decision yet” then the show just flies under the radar never seen nor heard of again. With that in mind I’ve taken some liberties with this list.

Whether at the hands of the network, or a creative decision on their own part, here are the shows that wrapped in 2016 or confirmed their ending.
