Ah, a new year, full of new opportunities… to say goodbye to your favorite TV shows.
With 2023 just days away, we’re taking stock of nearly 30 (and counting!) series that will wrap up for good in the new year, all of which are detailed in the list below.
Several long-running staples will say their farewells in 2023, including Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and The CW’s The Flash. Of course, given the Nexstar of it all, The CW will bid a few others adieu, too, Nancy Drew and Riverdale among them.
But newer fare is also represented in the list below, like Showtime’s Your Honor and Netflix’s Firefly Lane. (Speaking of Netflix, you might notice that Stranger Things is missing from our tally; with Season 5 currently on track for a 2024 release, we’ve left it off our 2023 list for now.)
Not every departing series has a premiere and/or finale date just yet, but we’ll be updating this list with new intel throughout the year, so be sure to bookmark it for the most up-to-date information. In the meantime, scroll through the photos below for a reminder of which shows are ending in 2023, then drop a comment with the series you’ll miss most!
