ABC cancelled a handful of series Friday.

It also renewed several shows.

The network officially booked “For The People,” “Station 19,” “black-ish,” “Speechless,” “Splitting Up Together,” and “Fresh Off The Boat” for 2018-19.

The “Station 19,” “black-ish” and “FOTB” renewals were all considered virtual locks going into upfront season.

The “For The People” order, on the other hand, comes as a surprise. The show has greatly struggled from a ratings standpoint, offering no real improvement on previous timeslot occupant (and now cancelled) “Kevin (Probably) Saves The World” despite airing on a night made stronger by “Roseanne.”

“For The People,” “Station 19” and “Splitting Up Together” will be back for second seasons. “Speechless” will be returning for a third season, while “black-ish” and “FOTB” are confirmed for fifth cycles.
