Which of your fave US shows are coming back – and which ones aren’t?

2 Broke Girls, the controversial sitcom which was once a primetime fixture on Channel Nine, has been cancelled after six seasons – the biggest scalp yet from the US TV industry’s “upfronts”.

The upfronts, the period where networks reveal their upcoming fall primetime schedules – and notable omissions – in a bid to secure early advertisers, has seen mixed fortunes for a number of big-name TV imports, including the one-time Nine hit.

A longtime critical punching bag for its reliance on racist stereotypes for punchlines (even Kevin Rudd once infamously got involved), the series – starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as a couple of wisecracking diner waitresses – steadily saw its ratings drop since its debut in 2011 where its lead-in was the hit Two and a Half Men.

In December, Nine reportedly paid $86 million to renegotiate its syndication contract with Warner Bros, allowing it to dump the underperforming show.

Conservative commentators in the US have also cried foul over the cancellation of Tim Allen’s Trump-friendly sitcom Last Man Standing – which airs locally on Ten’s multi-channel Eleven – despite consistent ratings.

They’ve even led calls for a boycott of network ABC over its alleged “liberal bias” in axing the show, which stars noted Republican Tim Allen as a Democrats-bashing family man.

Other cancellations to affect local viewers include Eleven’s animation favourite Son of Zorn and the supernatural procedural Sleepy Hollow.

In bittersweet news, popular programs like Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal (Seven) and Zooey Deschanel’s New Girl (Eleven) have both been issued seventh season reprieves, with their upcoming seasons announced to be their last.

Of course, many local favourites are set to return.

Ten’s Modern Family was renewed for two more seasons, which will take it through to its tenth season, with the cast rumoured to have struck “significant pay increases” from around $US350,000 to $US500,000 per episode.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the cult favourite inexplicably buried by Ten in late-night screenings on Eleven, will return for season three, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the cop comedy currently being fast-tracked by SBS, will return for season five.

In one of the bigger announcements of these upfronts, American network ABC revealed American Idol is set for a reboot, with Katy Perry to be confirmed as a judge on the show later this week, according to TMZ.

Simon Cowell, the acerbic judge who appeared on the show from 2002 to 2010, revealed he was asked to return to the program, but “the answer is no”.

“I have no interest,” he told Variety. “My memories are when we first started. It was a different time… You can’t recreate that.”

A Channel Ten spokesperson said the network has “no plans” as yet to revive the show locally here.
