  • Several popular TV series that air on M-Net have been cancelled.
  • Most shows are from the CW network owned jointly by Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount.
  • Legacies, Dynasty, Charmed, Roswell, and The Endgame are among the cancelled shows.

There's blood in the TV water after a string of overnight TV show cancellations in America that saw multiple series seen in South Africa getting axed.

Most cancelled TV shows are from the small CW network owned jointly by Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount, but faces a future of very likely being sold off to Nexstar in the United States.

The supernatural institution of the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted is no longer accepting applications with Legacies, seen on M-Net (DStv 101), cancelled after 4 seasons. Set in the same universe as The Originals (which lasted 5 seasons) and The Vampire Diaries (which ran for 8 seasons), it ends a 13-year run of The Vampire Diaries world.

Executive producer Julie Plec on Twitter referred to the shocking and infamous bloodbath killing scene in Game of Thrones, writing: "It's the Red Wedding at WBTV/CW today. Much more to say, but not today. Loads of gratitude coming from fans and cast and crew in future tweets. But today, we mourn".

Also cancelled on Thursday is the reboot of Dynasty seen on Netflix SA (after 5 seasons), Charmed seen on Showmax (after 4 seasons) Roswell, New Mexico seen on M-Net (after 4 seasons), the reboot of 4400 and Naomi (after its first season).

The Endgame from NBC that just started on M-Net in April has also been cancelled after its first season, In the Dark seen on M-Net (after 4 seasons), and Magnum P.I. seen on M-Net (after 4 seasons) were also cancelled.

United States of Al and B Positive, also seen on M-Net, were cancelled after their second seasons, with the series Good Sam and How We Roll also getting cancelled after their first seasons.
