'American Idol' Returns Next Year, 'Revolution' Does Not: Here's The Scoop On TV Cancellations

As the 2013-2014 TV season comes to an end, networks are deciding what shows to keep or boot off the air next year.

Among the five major networks – ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC – 70 shows were renewed for another season, 38 TV shows were cancelled, and 45 new shows were picked up.

And how did Latino actors stack up with all the changes?

The TV shows renewed for another season that include Latino actors are ABC’s “Castle,” “The Goldbergs,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Modern Family” and “Once Upon a Time.” At CBS, “Blue Bloods,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “Person of Interest” were picked up again while at NBC, “Chicago Fire,” “Law and Order: SVU,” “The Voice” and “Parenthood” got the green light.

In a surprise move, FOX also renewed “American Idol” for the 14th season amid declining ratings. The show will be downsized to one night a week – it’s currently airs twice a week – for several weeks next spring.

"'Idol' is not going to come back to be the ratings champion it once was," said Kevin Reilly, FOX entertainment chief, said recently. "But we believe the show can be on for many years to come."

Fox is also bringing back “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Glee” while CW picked up “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Originals.”

Among the 38 shows cancelled this year, 14 of them included at least one Latino actor.

ABC gave the ax to “Killer Woman,” “Lucky 7,” “Mixology,” “Super Fun Night” and “Trophy Wife.”

CBS pulled the plug on “Friends with Better Lives” while FOX axed “Dads,” “Enlisted,” “Rake” “Surviving Jack” and “The X-Factor.”

The Alfonso Cuarón-produced freshman show “Believe” was cancelled and was joined by “The Michael J. Fox Show, “Revolution” and “Welcome to the Family.” The CW pulled the plug on “Star-Crossed.”
