Scott D. Pierce: Has your favorite TV show been canceled?

More than 150 series either ended in 2022 or will end in 2023.

The new year has barely begun, and we already know of more than two dozen TV shows that will soon be ending.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s always better to go out leaving people wanting more. And, let’s be honest. Most shows get canceled because too few people are watching them — because, more often than not, they’re not good.

There are series that come to a good stopping point and actually stop making new episodes. That’s better that than hanging on long after running out of creative steam, which happens far too often.

I’m looking at you, “The Flash” and “Riverdale.”

“Stranger Things” will return for a fifth and final season, although that probably won’t be until 2024.

“Jack Ryan” will end after Season 4, which will stream either later this year or in 2024.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu) will return for its sixth and final season, either in 2023 or possibly in 2024. Hulu has already ordered a sequel series, “The Testaments.”

Although it has been announced that the upcoming third season of “Ted Lasso” would be the last, there’s been some equivocation about that so … stay tuned.

ABC announced it is picking up the acclaimed comedy for a sixth season. The network is also giving an early series order to “mixed-ish,” a spinoff about show creator Rainbow Johnson’s experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the ‘80s. (Ron Tom/ABC via AP)

IMichael Rozman | Warner Bros. via AP) In this March 7, 2019 photo released by Warner Bros., David Letterman appears with host Ellen DeGeneres during a taping of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in Los Angeles.(

And in daytime • In addition to the exits of “Maury,” “The Doctors,” “Wendy Williams” and “The Real,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” called it a wrap — sort of voluntarily. DeGeneres’ decision came in the wake of a tsunami of bad publicity that resulted in plunging ratings.

Oh, and “The Dr. Oz Show” bit the dust when its star launched his losing campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania.
