Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory, Mom and more renewed!

But we’ll be saying goodbye to three other shows.

By TV Week team
Producer Chuck Lorre is having a fantastic week as the last of his three current shows is renewed for a new season.
Anna Faris and Allison Janney-led comedy, Mom, has been confirmed for a sixth season and is set to remain on 9GO! in Australia.
Meanwhile, it's no surprise newcomer and The Big Bang Theory (TBBT) spin-off, Young Sheldon, is returning for a second instalment.
The show, which explores the early life of TBBT favourite Sheldon Cooper, launched to a whopping 1.05 million viewers in Australia and 17.2 million in the States.
"We can't wait to see …the vision for how the Cooper family deals with Sheldon growing a year older…and smarter," said Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment in January.
Its predecessor will also return for another season - its 12th instalment - later this year.
Elsewhere, Netflix's viking drama, The Last Kingdom, has scored a third season that's already in production. It will hit the streaming service in the second half of the year.

It's not all good news in TV land, however, with the news that some old (and new) favourites, will not be returning.
Everything Sucks, Netflix's '90s equivalent of worldwide success Stranger Things, didn't manage to tap into the nostalgia-factor in quite the same way and has been let go from their library after just one season.
Also leaving screens is Amazon Prime's Mozart in the Jungle. The two-time Golden Globe winner starring Gael Garcia Bernal will end after its current fourth season.
"We are so proud of the four seasons we made of this show and are grateful to the cast, crew, fans and Amazon for writing this symphony with us," the statement reads. "We hope people will keep finding the show for years to come."

Finally, Jennifer Lopez's police drama Shades of Blues won't return after its yet-to-air third season but the superstar says she's grateful for the role.
"Playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman," Jennifer says. "It's crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful.
"I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!"
If you need to fill the gap left by the cancelled shows, the Roseanne reboot will hit Australian screens on Monday, 30 April at 7.30pm on TEN.
