We have a lot to thank America for.


Doughnuts, hot dogs, Mickey Mouse, country music... and some really good telly. (Among lots of other things, obviously.)

Some of our favourite TV shows hail from across the pond – and when it comes to making decisions about whether we'll get to watch more of Alicia Florrick, Sheldon Cooper or Lesley Knope, the ball is very much in the US networks' court.

So, we've scoured the internet for the facts (and some well-informed rumours) to give you a guide to which shows are coming back. And which are getting thrown out in the trash. (Sorry, rubbish bin.)
