Want to know where your sweet new shows are and if they're sticking around? Never fear, Wetpaint Entertainment is here. We dug into all the new shows premiering on the major networks, and we're here to let you know the status.
Just to be totally clear, here's what the status of the show means:
Ordered for a full season: The network has okayed a full season for the show, and will complete Season 1.
Renewed for Season 2: Hooray, this show is coming back next year!
Premiering midseason: It's premiering later in the TV season — probably around January or February 2014 — so it hasn't had a chance to shine yet.
