The circus that is upfronts continues with ABC announcing a slew of cancellations, pick-ups and renewals. Via TV Line, the network has decided to cancel sci-fi series V, Matthew Perry’s sitcom Mr. Sunshine, the superhero family drama No Ordinary Family and the on-the-bubble drama Brothers and Sisters (after considering giving the show one more season, the network decided to free up their Sunday night slot and axe the show). Other cancellations at ABC include Off the Map, Detroit 187 and Better With You.

On a lighter note, freshman comedy Happy Endings and procedural drama Body of Proof were both renewed for a second season, and the Charlie’s Angels reboot has scored a pick-up. Other new series getting picked up include Tim Allen’s return Last Man Standing, controversial series Good Christian Belles (previously Good Christian Bitches), period soap Pan Am, Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal and the fairytale-themed Once Upon a Time from Lost vets Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Damon Lindelof hinted via Twitter that the show is “gonna be special.”
