Down below, you'll find a list of all the series that have been cancelled or are scheduled to end and will thus not return for the upcoming 2021-2022 season. 2020 will probably be one of the weirdest years ever, especially if you take series and movies into mind. It is the year that resulted in an abrupt ending for various series due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Seasons were unfinished and some series didn't end the way they were supposed to.
But the thing that isn't strange, is the cancellation of series, justified or not. This year, various series have been cancelled as well or they are scheduled to end and the last remaining episodes will air in this season.
