An ABC Family/Freeform favorite will say goodbye after its May 22 finale. Will the city-set series' leading man Ben Wheeler (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) finally find love after six seasons?

The CBS comedy starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon (set in NYC) was the latest adaptation of Neil Simon's 1965 play, but its ratings couldn't keep up. The third season finale of "The Odd Couple" aired in January and CBS has since announced it won't be returning.

The series starring Hayley Atwell as a former first daughter blackmailed into heading a New York unit dedicated to examining suspected wrongful convictions wasn't re-elected after its first season. If the New York setting seemed unconvincing, it's because the show was filmed primarily in Toronto.

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs were "2 Broke Girls" working at the Williamsburg Diner for six years, but did they do Brooklyn justice? The show, taped in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles, was pretty relatable as far as money struggles go --- aside from the unrealistic apartment Caroline (Behrs) and Max (Dennings) managed to afford on waitressing tips. CBS won't be bringing the series back for a seventh season.

"Boy Meets World" fans got to see a bit of what the future looked like for Cory and Topanga Matthews in this New York City-set remake, but three seasons were enough for Disney Channel. "Girl Meets World" came to an unofficial end in January when the cast posted emotional pleas on social media in an effort to keep the series afloat. The series officially got the hammer in May, when the network announced it does not plan to bring Maya and Riley back for round four.

"The Mindy Project," filmed primarily in Los Angeles, follows romance-obsessed New York City doctor Mindy Lahiri -- who has a killer Manhattan brownstone. It'll return to Hulu for its last hurrah in September.
