The TV shows that are cancelled for 2013 include some well-known shows and some series that you probably have never heard of. NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox have announced the shows that won’t be coming back next season, according to TV Series Finale on Monday March 4, 2013.
The CW, MTV, Syfy and other networks are also redoing their lineup for the 2013 season of shows and getting rid of the ones that aren't gathering much interest. A few surprises are on this list starting with "Breaking Bad." This AMC series was very popular, but it did take the part about breaking bad to a level no one saw coming. Maybe they just can take it any further.
Then there's "iCarly" that brings another surprise in the cancellation department. This show is so popular that it had to be one of the last shows that viewers expected to go. Networks made some attempts to offer entertainment with a few of their new shows, but they didn't get off the ground from the begining like "Ben and Kate" from Fox.
Here is the list of TV shows cancelled for 2013 from TV Series Finale:
