These 17 TV Shows Are Saying Goodbye In 2017

It’s always a shock when are favorite TV series get axed. Do you remember when FOX canceled Arrested Development?! Seriously, we’re still trying to recover! These days, networks are being a bit more kind to TV viewers, giving us a heads up and a final season before completing doing away with a show. However, that doesn’t mean that there still won’t be some big shocks as we head into the spring months. Until then here are 17 TV shows are saying goodbye in 2017. From The Vampire Diaries to Bones, some of our old favs won’t be on the 2017-2018 TV slate.

Pretty Little Liars, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell
ABC Family/Freeform
From ABC Family to FreeForm, people have literally lived for the Pretty Little Liars and all of the teen drama's twists and turns. The show's vocal fanbase has kept it alive for all of these years but since FreeForm is reworking its lineup and the series has pretty much run its course, 2017 will be the year we say goodbye.
The Vampire Diaries
The CW
We adored The Vampire Diaries when it first aired eight seasons ago, but somewhere between the convoluted storylines and series star Nina Dobrev leaving TVD, we stopped tuning in. Still, with an avid fanbase and some sexy co-stars, the series is going out with a bang. Dobrev is even returning to reprise her role in the series finale.
Bones (FOX)
Bones has seriously been on the air for well over a decade and after a bazillion seasons, it's finally coming to an end. Catch the final episodes of Bones which are airing now on Tuesday nights.

FreeForm is looking to revamp their programming and part of that is pushing out some shows that are holdouts from the ABC Family days. Switched at Birth was seemingly a wrap back in 2015 when no new episodes aired last year. But, it looks like FreeForm is letting the series have some proper closure with the finalepisodess currently airing.
Bates Motel, Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga
As one of A&E's first scripted original series, Bates Motel has slayed with its amazing plotlines and insane premise, but it's now time for the series to come to a close. The final season will see Marion Cane (Rihanna) enter Norman's life and it should have a pretty Psycho ending.
Grimm (NBC)
Beginning nearly six years ago, Grimm was a part of the resurgence of the supernatural on television. It snagged viewers on Friday nights for many seasons until it couldn't quite keep its audience anymore. Last year, NBC renewed Grimm for one final season so if you haven't caught up now is the time before it's gone off the air for good.

Girls (HBO)
Despite the controversy that has sometimes surrounded the series and its creator, Lena Dunham, Girls has been a pretty big staple of HBO for the past six years. And yet, the series is finally going dark after this season. Stil we're sure we're going to be seeing a lot more from Dunham and the rest of the girls in the near future.
Black Sails (Starz)
Though Black Sails hasn't been a ratings powerhouse for Starz like Power or Outlander, the pirate series was one of the first to usher in an era of amazing original programming for the Starz network. Still, time is money and Starz has had to pull the show because of ratings. Catch the final episodes which are currently airing.
Workaholics (Comedy Central)
Workaholics, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, Adam Devine
Comedy Central
With a small but mighty fan base, Workaholics has been able to hang on for seven seasons on Comedy Central. However, it looks like the network is ready to move on. You can check out the final episodes of Workaholics which are currently airing on Wednesday nights.

When we first saw the trailer for The Strain it looked creepy AF. A supernatural series that followed Strigoi, The Strain had big plans. Unfortunately, lower ratings means it's getting a final season this year to bring things to a close.
HBO's dark and twisted series, The Leftovers is getting a final season starting this April. Despite the amazing acting and emotional turmoil, The Leftovers certainly doesn't have Game of Thrones ratings, therefore the network has decided to say goodbye after this last season.
Bloodline (Netflix)
Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Bloodlines, Netflix, 122315
In a pretty rare move for Netflix, they are canceling their critically acclaimed series Bloodline following a final season. Even though the series has been nominated for all of the awards, we suppose it doesn't help that a lot of people aren't actually watching it. Oh well, sometimes a few seasons is all you need from a dope ass series.

Longmire (Netflix)
Robert Taylor, Longmire, Netflix, 122315
After getting canceled over at A&E, Longmire found a new home at Netflix where it has thrived with an even darker tone for the past few seasons. Still, all things come to an end. The sixth and final season of Longmire will air on Netflix later this year.
Orphan Black (BBC America)
Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany
BBC America/
Tatiana Maslany has been sensational on BBC America's clone thriller, playing multiple characters, but after a fifth and final season, it looks like she will be moving on to new things. Catch up now on the amazing series before the final season airs later this year.
Episodes (Showtime)
We were all puzzled when we heard about Matt LeBlanc's Episodes heading to Showtime a few years back, but the series was able to maintain its own. Still, once no new episodes aired in 2016, we assumed the comedy series was a wrap. However, it looks like Showtime is letting Episodes wrap up properly with a final season sometime this year.

Despite the masterful writing and fantastic premise of the golden age of computer technology, AMC's Halt & Catch Fire is still incredibly under watched. As a result, the network is saying goodbye after a fourth and final season which will air later this year.
Turn: Washington Spies (AMC)
We remember seeing the amazing commercials for Turn: Washington Spies when Mad Men was still airing, but after that, we forgot all about it. The series has been critically acclaimed but far from a ratings hit. Still, Turn is getting 10 final episodes to finish out its plotlines in 2017.
