If you're a fan of television (and you darn well should be), then October has been a great month for good news. Several high-profile TV shows have been renewed for new seasons, including Prime Video's Gen V, Netflix's Sweet Magnolias, Hulu's Only Murders in the Building, and Peacock's Based on a True Story. That's the good news. The bad news is that there have been cancellations, too, including Apple TV+'s The Afterparty, Paramount+'s Fatal Attraction, Max's Sort Of, and Netflix's Elite; the latter two will get final seasons to wrap things up. You have to take the bad with the good.  

Whether you're looking to celebrate more of your favorites or mourn the loss of something on your regular rotation, we're keeping tabs on all the TV shows that were canceled or renewed this month below.
