All the TV Shows Ending in 2018

It's time to bid adieu to these favourite sitcoms.

From critical darlings ('Veep') to signature network shows ('Scandal') TV Buzz takes a look at the soon-to-be dearly departed.

Read on for a look at all the shows that will wrap their runs in 2018.


The HBO series wrap with its forthcoming seventh season as production works around star Julia Louis-Dreyfus' treatment for breast cancer. "We don't want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series," the actress told THR in September about the decision to end the comedy.

'The Americans'

The Americans will end with a final 10 episodes in 2018. The spy drama, starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, earned a prestigious Peabody Award, among others, during its run but has never broken through, ratings-wise, despite being a staple on critics' year-end best dramas lists.


Shonda Rhimes' political thriller will close up shop for good with its current seventh season. The Kerry Washington starrer was never designed to go more than eight or 10 seasons, a fact that prolific showrunner Rhimes had been vocal about early on in the show's run.

'House of Cards'

House of Cards helped put Netflix on the map as a destination for scripted originals. But that may not be its legacy. The series, which is ending with season six, will likely proceed without star and exec producer Kevin Spacey after the streaming giant cut ties with the actor following sexual harassment allegations. Look for Robin Wright to become the focal point of the Media Rights Capital-produced final season.

CMT announced that the upcoming sixth season of country music drama Nashville would be its last. The series — which killed off star Connie Britton's Rayna James — will finish out with 16 episodes split in two runs of eight, all airing in 2018.

'New Girl'

It's farewell to the cool gang. The comedy will pick up after a four-year time jump that will see Jess (Deschanel) in a committed relationship with Nick (Jake Johnson). The final eight-episode season will air in 2018.

'The Fosters'

The GLAAD Award-winning family drama will wrap its five-season run in the summer with a special three-part series finale. That sets up a new 13-episode spinoff series starring Maia Mitchell (Callie) and Cierra Ramirez (Mariana).

'The Originals'

The Vampire Diaries spinoff will wrap with its fifth season in 2018 and is set to bow midseason on the younger-skewing CW. While The Originals is ending, showrunner Plec hasn't ruled out yet another spinoff from the vampire franchise that helped define The CW as a home for genre programming.
