    The Americans getting another couple of seasons but no more is probably pretty much optimal from my point of view. It's good, but clearly can't go on for ever, and deserves not to unexpectedly end on a cliffhanger nor to peter out into daftness.

    Yeah, this isn't a cancellation! It's fantastic news. Sounds like the creators are calling the shots and know what they are doing.

    Limitless being cancelled though makes me sad. That was an inventive and fun show I will miss.

  • Limitless was certainly the best show on CBS and was one of the best shows on network TV full stop. Bah!

    Re: The Americans. Listening to The Slate Americans podcast, it's clear they've been talking about just two more seasons for a while, so this was really just a confirmation. But it is good news. I'm surprised they went for six seasons, since five seems to be the new normal, but all the better

    It is good when TV programmes end rather than just trying to keep making them until all the good ideas have been used and they're reduced to the dregs and ever-paler imitations of when they were good (yes, I'm looking at you, too many US programmes to name).

    As long as they don't do that really annoying thing of broadcasting half of the final series one year, and half the next.
