It’s that time of the year again, the one where we find out the reign and death of our favorite shows. Apart from being a great night in television, Thursday was also the day that ABC handed out its renewal notices. Needless to say, many TV enthusiasts can breathe easy as fan-favorites Once Upon A Time, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder and even newbie Secrets and Lies (we hope that they’ll have a new storyline and hunk to replace Ben Crawford, played by Ryan Phillippe, who mysteriously died in prison after having taken the blame for his youngest daughter’s murderous acts) got greenlighted. Naturally, there were also quite a few cancellations, such as Revenge and Resurrection.
