"I will never, ever go away!"
“I will never, ever go away!”

UPDATE: This list has been updated and is current as of May 13, 2015.

Every year around this time, television actors and producers hold their breaths to see if their shows will survive what The Ashley affectionately calls “The Big Hack,” in which the networks decide which shows get canceled and which ones get renewed.

Of course, The Ashley only cares about reality shows, so she’s put together a handy list of shows and their current fates. The Ashley will continue to update this list as the networks release more information on our favorite shows!

There are a few shows that will almost certainly return for another season, but haven’t gotten the official renewal by their network yet. Those shows include:

19 Kids & Counting (TLC): With new Grand-Duggars, and Jessa married and and ready to make blessings, TLC would have to be crazy to cancel this money pile.

Duck Dynasty (A&E): The show’s cast has confirmed another season but so far the network hasn’t.

  1. I think the show should come back I thought it was hysterical me and 4 of my friends watched it faithfully get rid of some of those dum ads house wife shows try making the world a little more funny and real friends then nasty people who hate each other reck ing every ones loves ending up in devorse and l this kid shit bring back the show loved it

  2. One more question… Do you know when Real Housewives of Orange County will start this year? It’s been over a year since the last season began and it seems to start later and later every year but there’s no real info out there about the upcoming season!

  3. I LOVE The People’s Couch on Bravo! I REALLY hope they bring it back and soon!!! Also, whatever happened to that show One Born Every Minute on Lifetime? I can’t find anything about it being cancelled yet I don’t think it’s played a new or repeat episode since like 2012. Oh, one more, I don’t really care for it but was Rich Kids of Beverly Hills cancelled or is there a new season starting soon?

  4. I really wish they would cancel Sister Wives. Kody Brown is just obviously making things up for television. He lies constantly and gets his ‘wives’ to lie as well. We, the audience, aren’t stupid. We have watched this show and honestly he contradicts himself often. They are always transitioning from one thing to another. The ‘wives’, IMO are also not real anymore. When they are asked a question in the tell alls you can tell they want to say something but have obviously been told to show a united front

    1. I completely agree. He’s an egotistical creep. And when those anthropology students came, it was obvious they were told what to say.

    2. so agree with you, and it’s not interesting anymore at all. It’s a bunch of middle aged women that live near each other that or boinking the same douchy man! Not interesting, get it off the air.

  5. I would love to hear your thoughts & reviews on the new A&E reality show, Neighbors With Benefits. I stumbled upon it last night & last night was the premiere. It’s a hot mess but I’ll probably watch the rest of the season
