Television has never been better or more available than it is now, with new series coming in seemingly every week, from prestige-level dramas to true crime to biting comedies.

That nonstop content can feel a little overwhelming, especially since since several TV titans stand tall over the fresh meat, the pillars of our viewing habits. But all of that is about to change in 2019, as some of the biggest and longest-standing television shows come to an end. It’s not just the year that Game of Thrones ends, but the year that we bid adieu to many of the shows that shaped our pop culture conversations throughout the 2010s. Here’s your guide to all of the major shows ending in 2019.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

The first to go is Netflix‘s Tina Fey-created comedy series about a young woman (Ellie Kemper) who escapes from her kidnapper and adjusts to a new life in modern-day New York City. The full batch of new episodes makes for the second half of the fourth season, which released last year.

Where to watch: Netflix
When to watch: The final season drops on Netflix on January 25.

Broad City

Abbi and Ilana are also bowing out after five seasons, when their NYC-based stoner comedy comes to a conclusion this spring.

Where to watch: Comedy Central
When to watch: The season kicks off on January 31.

The Big Bang Theory

Bazinga! The biggest show on TV – a comedy about four nerdy scientists and their attractive next door neighbor – is going caput after 12 seasons on the air.

Where to watch: CBS
When to watch: The final season is currently airing and will wrap in spring.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Rachel Bloom’s charming musical dramedy was a game-changer, earning the actress a Golden Globe and receiving widespread acclaim. It will also say goodbye this spring.

Where to watch: The CW
When to watch: The fourth and final season is currently airing.

Gotham

Who honestly had high hopes for this one going in? A crime drama set in the Batman universe, Gotham was a risky bet from the start, but wound up slaying expectations and developing a beloved fan base, lasting five seasons.

Where to watch: Fox
When to watch: The fifth and final season began January 3 and should wrap things up in March.

Shadowhunters

This supernatural drama series, based on Cassandra Clare’s popular Mortal Engines series, will wrap this spring.

Where to watch: Freeform
When to watch: The back half of the third and final reason returns February 25.

Jane the Virgin
Jane the Virgin

Gina Rodriguez burst onto the scene in this CW telenovela back in 2014. The show earned her a Golden Globe and has been a beloved staple since its arrival, with a spinoff series currently in the works.

Where to watch: The CW
When to watch: The final season arrives on March 27

Game of Thrones

The most popular show on TV – and one of the most critically acclaimed of all time – will tie things together (or at least try to) this summer, after eight genre-defying and budget-breaking seasons.

Where to watch: HBO
When to watch: The final season begins April 14.

Veep

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won every award under the sun for this breakout political comedy, which will return for its seventh and final season in spring.

Where to watch: HBO
When to watch: No official return date has been announced, but every other season started up in April, so expect something similar here.

iZombie

This criminally under-seen CW zombie series never got the love it deserved, although it does have an ardent fanbase and will live on as a cult classic. It also got an impressive five seasons, the last of which airs early this summer.

Where to watch: The CW
When to watch: The final season will air starting May 2

Homeland

This Claire Danes CIA series was a huge deal when it premiered back in 2011. Its critical acclaim muted a bit in later seasons, but it remained a stalwart prestige drama for eight solid years. It will conclude this summer.

Where to watch: Showtime
When to watch: The show will return in June.

The Affair

This soapy Showtime drama starring Ruth Wilson (who left the show last year) will wrap up its Rashomon-style episodes with a climate change-centric fifth season later this year.

Where to watch: Showtime
When to watch: The first three seasons aired in the fall but the fourth started in June, so we’re guessing a summer premiere is a safe bet.

Killjoys

Canadian import Killjoys – which airs on Space in its native country and on Syfy in the States – will say goodbye with its fifth season later this year.

Where to watch: SyFy
When to watch: No exact date has been announced, but the first four seasons aired in either June or July, so a summer release is looking likely.

Orange Is the New Black

Orange is the New Black helped change the way we consume television, with its all-at-once season drops. The seventh and final season will bring the Netflix classic to an end later this year.

Where to watch: Netflix
When to watch: The first six seasons all aired in either June or July, so look for the final season to land in either of those months.

The Deuce

The third and final season of this James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal-starring HBO drama – about the rise of the porn industry in the late ’70s – will hit screens this fall.

Where to watch: HBO
When to watch: The first two seasons began in September, so look for this one to drop around the same time.

Mr. Robot

Now that he’s an Oscar-nominee, Rami Malek is set to move on from the show that made him a household name. The fourth and final season of the hacker drama will air is 12-episode final run in fall.

Where to watch: USA
When to watch: No word on a release date, and the first three seasons aired in different seasons, but if we had to guess we’d say late fall.

Transparent

Marred with controversy after its star, Jeffrey Tambor, was accused of sexual misconduct, this breakout Amazon Studios series will air its final season with him later this year. According to creator Jill Solloway, the finale will be a feature-length musical.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video
When to watch: The last two seasons dropped in September, so look for the grand finale to hit around that time, too.

Elementary

This modern spin on Sherlock Holmes, starring Lucy Liu as a gender-flipped Watson, will air its seventh and final season later this year.

Where to watch: CBS
When to watch: No release date has been announced. The first five seasons aired in late fall and the sixth in the spring, so it’s anyone’s guess – but we’d bet on fall.

Easy

Joe Swanberg’s Chicago-set anthology series says goodbye after three seasons sometime later this year.

Where to watch: Netflix
When to watch: The first dropped in September and the second in December; we’d guess December for this one.
