No Season 5 for the cable drama.
March 8, 2018
Word is out this evening that TNT has cancelled The Librarians after four seasons. Showrunner Dean Devlin took to Twitter with the news, posting that he will be attempting to find a new home for the movie-based series. The show aired its final episode just last month.
The adventure drama premiered on the cable network in 2014 as an expansion of its hit movie franchise, following an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library whose members dedicate their lives to protecting the world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.
The reason for today's cancellation is unclear, as The Librarians was a solid performer for the cable network over the course of its run. It was however, one of the last series still on the air from before Kevin Reilly became president of TNT. Since his arrival, Reilly has been taking the network's original programming in a different, more edgy, direction.

Re. "Reilly has been taking the network's original programming in a different, more edgy, direction."
Not watching any of the new series on USA for the same reason.

The librarians is a great *entertaining* show (that word is important, TNT!) and I really hope Devlin finds a place for it. Short sighted networks that dump shows because they don't fit in with the vision despite them pulling in good figures just deserve to fail.

Liked the show. Fewer things to watch on this network.

It was time, although I have to say last season was better than the previous one. The series plot line was starting to wander, and it was becoming too easy to invent the "artifact of the week". The same thing happened to "Warehouse 13" on SyFy.
Overall, the series never quite matched the movies.

I'm incredibly sad to read this news. This was a fun and clever show and definitely deserved to go on to a fifth season. Hopefully it gets picked up by another network.

Yep, last show watched on TNT. Don’t like the network’s new direction. Shame. Great show to watch with all family members. Always sparked some kind of follow up search. Like Warehouse 13 before it, fun with a smart edge to oi.

I'm in shock, and as it seems, so is everyone else.
tnt you suck!
Seriously, what a moronic decision.
Cancelling a good performing show is beyond my comprehension.
All I can think of saying is YOU SUCK tnt.
PS. You don't get capitals 'cuz YOU SUCK!!!

All I can say is that this was the only show I still watched on TNT. Not a fan of their "different, more edgy direction!" Bunch of BS. This was an incredible show, and I sincerely hope they find it a new home, maybe on Netflix or something.

Well just another reason to stop watching TNT. Executives who don't consider their audience and only want shows that in my opinion are based in violence and pornography do not need my viewership. This show was fun for the family and had a great cast. It really saddens me that we are loosing more and more family friendly based television shame on TNT.

Wow...TNT does it again and cancels another really good show! Not watching any new TNT shows. Why bother!
