May Sweeps Scorecard 2018: Deaths, Breakups, Weddings, Firings, Sex, Resurrections, Lost Homages and More!

May Sweeps Scorecard 2018

Given the amount of snow that’s still turning to slush on the East Coast, we couldn’t blame readers for skeptically cocking an eyebrow over the notion that spring has sprung. But perhaps we can reassure you that winter is, in fact, over by providing the one irrefutable sign that the seasons have changed: the release of TVLine’s annual May Sweeps Scorecard!

As in years past, the spoilerfest is chock-full of hints about which characters will be breaking up, taking off, dropping dead and being resurrected by the time the curtain falls on Sweeps (and, as will happen, many a series’ season). If an item has a [SPOILER] tag affixed to it, you know the drill — that means it’s your job to guess the secret that our jobs depend on us keeping.

Wait, wait. Not so fast. Before you dive in:

♦ Keep in mind that most of the entries pertain to series regulars or recurring characters, all on shows that air on a broadcast network (i.e. ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, The CW).

♦ Also keep in mind that, as the plots twist and information leaks, we’ll be updating the Scorecard (and re-updating it… and RE-re-updating it) with additional entries. And then once Sweeps commences, we’ll be revealing the identities of the individuals behind the [SPOILER] tags (but only after the twists play out on air). In other words, bookmark this page now.

Lastly, keep in mind that, if it’s on the Scorecard, it occurs during May Sweeps, which this year begins Thursday, April 26 and ends Wednesday, May 23.

OK, now you can start reading and speculating!
