Sleepy Renewed,” “Undateable” Cancelled

In the wake of last night’s massacre of “on the bubble” series, the fate of only a handful of network shows remain in question – with many of them being decided today.

FOX has renewed its supernatural drama “Sleepy Hollow” for a fourth season despite the departure of female lead Nicole Beharie at the end of last season. The show wrapped its most recent run with a 1.4 rating and 4.8 million total viewers.

NBC has been doing the axe-swinging today, cancelling five series including “Undateable” after three seasons along with much of its freshman class including Eva Longoria’s “Telenovela,” multi-camera family comedy “Crowded,” medical drama “Heartbeat” and mystery thriller “Game of Silence”.

The network is set to replace them with several new shows including supernatural thriller “Midnight, Texas,” Dan Fogleman’s “This Is Us” and the Dick Wolf-produced “Chicago Justice”. Three other shows – “Timeless,” “Cruel Intentions” and “The Blacklist” are still undecided.

Finally over at ABC, the Tim Allen sitcom “Last Man Standing” has survived that network’s mass culling and will get a sixth season.
