ABC is bringing back 23 of its current shows next season, the network confirmed tonight. Some of the pick-ups are no-brainers: Shonda Rhimes’ triumvirate of dramas—Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder—will be back, along with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Modern Family.

First-year and on-the-bubble shows are breathing a sigh of relief after getting the go-ahead: American Crime and Secrets and Lies are getting sophomore seasons, as are Fresh Off the Boat, Galavant and Marvel’s Agent Carter.

Canceled, however, are freshman series Cristela and Forever, as well as sophomore entry Resurrection. Reality show The Taste is also gone.

A full list of ABC’s confirmed pickups is below.
