Your May Finales Calendar Is Here: Find Out What's Ending When!

Season Finales 2015

Oh, how this time of year hurts for us, the TV-philes. The month of May is nigh, meaning that no less than 76 (!) season-enders are coming our way.

When will The Vampire Diaries bid its leading lady adieu? On what day does Mad Men‘s magnificent era end? When will David Letterman serve up his very last Late Show? When will the very last Revenge be served, cold?

Here is our hand-crafted calendar of May finales, denoted in bold, as well as select series premieres, returns and specials. Click to zoom, save the dates! (Updated 5/1)
TV Calendar May Finales
Preemptive P.S. My calendar-making skills have never been infallible — it’s more of a hobby, really —  so if you spot something that is (theoretically) missing, drop a polite note in Comments and I just might include it in an update.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  1. Yecal59 says:

    Gotham finale is May 4th.

  2. Matt C. says:

    Really wanted to watch the Wayward Pines premiere, but I’ll be preoccupied with the Scandal finale. I bet FOX is mad that ABC pushed that episode back a week!

  3. SPAMMER says:

    DELETED #TVLineCares

  4. Mr. Tran K says:

    Can’t wait until May 20th for David Letterman’s farewell to The Late Show (MUST SEE TV).

  5. Fred says:

    You forgot 500 Questions on ABC – May 20 at 8 PM.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Nah, elected not to include. That cell (last day of May sweeps!) is already overflowing/creating layout issues. Hard calls had to be made.

  6. Tim says:

    Love these calendars, thanks!

  7. Grey's Fan says:

    Will any show get the buzz that Grey’s Anatomy is getting for May Sweeps? I have to say the big winner of sweeps appears to be an 11-year-old show. #GoGrey’sAnatomy

  8. So far only a few shows have been renewed. That leaves many shows (and some on the bubble) waiting to see if they will be cancelled or renewed.

  9. Amanda says:

    It’s rather small, but instead of it saying Halt and Catch Fire on May 31st, I believe it reads Half and Catch Fire.

    Thank you for another lovely calendar! I always enjoy knowing when my shows are going to end and which ones are premiering.

  10. Lynne says:

    I could be wrong, but I thought Criminal Minds finale was going to be two hours, seems to me that it usually is a double episode each year. Maybe I just confused it with OUAT.

  11. B says:

    Is the Outlander finale date correct? There are only 4 more episodes, which would suggest the last is on 5/23 rather than 5/30. Please tell me they aren’t going to skip a week….

  12. Daven says:

    Why are so many shows ending in the first week of May? It’s ludicrous. The shows should run until the third week! Some end in second and some in fourth.
    This whole “May sweeps ” happening in April is stupid!

  13. The Bott says:

    You forgot the finale of Undateable (NBC) on May 12th.

  14. Shannon says:

    Is The Royals finale still on May 17th? I didn’t see it on the calendar.

  15. jp says:

    thanks as always Matt!

  16. Thank you for the calendar! Did I miss seeing the Voice finale? Apologies if so.

  17. CJ says:

    Shouldn’t Outlander finale be May 23rd, which would be Ep 16 “To Ransom a Man’s Soul”

  18. Thank you, Matt!! As always, your calendars are much appreciated.

  19. scheuerhans says:

    Thanks for the calendars every month. What would be even more amazing would be a integration for Google calendar

  20. Jessa says:


  21. Are we going to get a proper calendar for summer premieres?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Someday! There’s a thing called May sweeps/Upfronts season keeping us quite busy right now.

  22. Christina Johnson says:

    sierra better win survivor, she is smarter than anyone thinks, shes playing the “as long as its not me” strategy that sandra used to win twice. the rest are horrible people
