The last 36 hours have seen some of your favorite primetime dramas renewed and others canceled; several of which feature former or current soap stars.  ABC has renewed for its upcoming sixth season How to Get Away with Murder.  During its fifth season, the series ranked as the No. 1 program in Thursday’s 10 PM slot in key demos: Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34.

How To Get Away With Murder stars Viola Davis as Annalise Keating, a law professor at a prestigious Philadelphia university who, with five of her students, becomes entwined in a murder plot.  The ensemble cast includes: Rome Flynn (Ex-Zende of The Bold and the Beautiful) who plays the key role of Gabriel Maddox.

However, the ensemble CBS comedy Life in Pieces which features Y&R’s Hunter King (Summer) as Clementine was canceled, and will not return after its current fourth season which is currently airing its fifth episode out of thirteen.

Upon learning of the cancellation, King took to her Instagram and shared: “Thank you for bringing me into the Life In Pieces family and for making it such a fun four years. I have so much love and respect for everyone who was involved in this show. Thank you to the amazing cast and crew, and thank you to our amazing leaders Justin Adler, @kaplanaaron , and Jeff Morton . I am forever grateful.”

Finally, Lee Daniels series on Fox, Star, which has been a companion to his hit sudsy Empire, was also canceled after its 3rd season.  Star followed three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business.  It has been reported by various outlets that the showrunners will be looking for another home for the series to try to continue it on.

So, happy to learn about HWTGM and ‘Grey’s’ being renewed? What do you think of the cancellations of Life in Pieces and Star? Let us know via the comment section below.

Life in Pieces is a fantastic show with a very talented cast. Wow, what a disappointment to hear that this show wasn’t recognized and appreciated by CBS!

su000 Is there ANYTHING you HAVE heard of? LOL! For Pete’s sake. That’s a saying you probably haven’t heard of. Quite popular back in the day. LOL

Of course “Star” was canceled…. after ending it with a cliffhanger that was a blatant ripoff of Dynasty’s “Moldavian Massacre” scene (I’m talking the real Dynasty here, not that abortion currently airing on CW) and for that matter, the Days of Our Lives scene that already ripped off that scene.

Oh and a baby kidnapping on top of that already, of course.

I don’t see this as a show that Netflix or Amazon would pick up though. Probably their best bet is to reconcile their plots on Empire somehow.

I really like Star. It’s not my genre of music but the stories behind each of the cast are very interesting. Maybe Netflix will pick it up…that’s where I watch it.

Oh no, Life in Pieces was canceled? I don’t watch but that means that obnoxious brat Summer will be hanging around Genoa City annoying the hell out of Kyle and Lola.

Hooray, Chris Carmack! Super-talented. Always makes his varied characters seem so natural. Happy for him and fans of “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“Star” should’ve been cancelled no real plot and not intriguing enough and as for “life in pieces”, never watched it but with Summer on it I would’ve watched it because I can’t stand her on Y&R and that mean more of her on that soap. I can’t stand her role and wish she go to another show for good!!!
