Season 5 will also be the last for Netflix’s “Lucifer,” as the streamer confirmed in June. Star Tom Ellis revealed that the season will be split into two parts, with each half consisting of 8 episodes. The first half of the season was released in August.
The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning series came to an end after nearly a decade. The Claire Danes-led drama ended after the eighth season in April. As “Homeland” creator Alex Gansa said, “I am sad to see the journey come to an end, but it is time.”
‘This Is Us’ (Renewed)
Season four of “This Is Us” ended with a dramatic fight between brothers Kevin and Randall. Luckily, thanks to a preemptive three-season renewal through season six, fans already knew they wouldn’t be left hanging. The real question is when the NBC hit will return. The best guess would be September 2020, provided coronavirus shooting delays don’t force it later into the fall season.
‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (Ended)
The musical comedy starring Rachel Bloom came to an end after four seasons on the CW.
The legal drama ended in 2019 after nine seasons on USA Network. Meghan Markle, who had played Rachel Zane, for seven seasons, did not make a cameo in the final seasons after departing to take on royal duties.
“Arrow” ended its seven-season run in January 2020. The superhero series, starring Stephen Amell, was a huge hit in its 2012 debut and helped launch the CW’s highly popular DC universe (dubbed “The Arrowverse”), which now also includes The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman.

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ (Renewed)
Hulu’s explosive dystopian drama based on the Margaret Atwood novel has been renewed for a fourth season. The only question is when it will hit the streamer given that production had to shut down in the spring due to the pandemic. Fans are hopeful it’ll drop in 2021.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ (Renewed)
The Andy Samberg comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” moved from Fox to NBC for its sixth and seventh seasons, the latter of which wrapped up in April 2020. Jake Peralta and crew will be back for an eighth season on NBC, but like so many shows in this COVID-19 realiaty, it’s TBD when it will air.
