We’ve got a TV round up to inform you on which ABC shows will be returning and which ones will be gone for good. More inside…

Your favorite comedy will be returning for another season!

ABC just gave the greenlight for a fourth season of “black•ish” for another round of laughs from the Johnson family. For the upcoming season, the show’s creator/executive producer/showrunner Kenya Barris will be teaming up with Stacy Traub (executive producer of the recently canceled “The Real O’Neals”) to executive produce.

As you know, Kenya has his plate full after extending his overall deal with ABC Studios. One of the projects he has coming down the pipeline will be a “black•ish” spin-off, starring Yara Shahidi. The show will follow Yara’s character, Zoey, heading off to college.

The untitled series is eyeing an order at Freeform, which is owned by Disney-ABC Television Group. We're here for the "A Different World" 2.0 series.

Speaking of ABC shows…

After three seasons, the anthology crime drama “American Crime,” which stars Regina King, has been canceled. Apparently, season three viewer ratings weren’t that great, so they decided to pull the plug. Bummer.

The show had a good run though. Regina King won TWO Primetime EMMY Awards for her work on the series.

“Secrets and Lies,” which stars hottie Michael Ealy, and “Dr. Ken,” which stars Tisha Campbell Martin, were also canceled by ABC after two seasons each. Low viewer ratings caused the shows to get shut down.
