All the major US TV shows that have been cancelled and renewed

As the curtain closes on America's 2017/18 TV season, executives begin sharpening their axes, ready to cut any show they don't think will perform into the future.

Often some fan favourites get the chop too.

The biggest casualty this year comes in the form of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the spoof cop show that's being dropped by FOX after five seasons.

Update: NBC have renewed Brooklyn Nine Nine, much to the delight of fans.

Already there have been calls for its reinstatement, and rumours that streaming giant Netflix might pick up the show in the future.

Other big shows to have the rug pulled from under them include New Girl, the run of which comes to an end after seven seasons, and the Twin Peaks-esque Wayward Pines, which managed just two before being felled.

But it's not all doom and gloom: there are renewals too.

Existential comedy The Good Place is back for a third season, while the divisive Big Bang Theory will also be returning.

Here are all the US TV cancellations and renewals announced so far:
