So many TV shows that should never have been canceled. Here are 10 that should come back for another season.
1. Reaper (2007)
The fervent wish of a Reddit user to see the return of Reaper speaks to the show's enduring popularity. This devilishly clever comedy-drama was a cult favorite when it first premiered in 2007, thanks to its refreshingly off-beat storyline and quirky cast of characters. Fans of the show were charmed by the misadventures of Sam Oliver, a young man who finds himself hunting escaped souls for the devil after his parents sell his soul to Satan. The show's cancellation was a tragedy for this Redditor and countless others. The thought of a comeback is nothing short of thrilling.
2. My Name Is Earl (2005)
Are you a fan of My Name is Earl? If so, you're not alone! This show, which aired from 2005 to 2009, was loved by many for its hilarious premise and quirky characters. The show follows Earl, a former criminal who decides to make amends for his past misdeeds after winning the lottery. It was a popular show, but it was canceled after four seasons due to declining ratings, leaving many fans with an unsatisfying open-ended finale. Join the avid viewer in their plea for the show's return and a proper conclusion to Earl's journey.
3. Stargate (1997)
Stargate fans, this one's for you. A passionate enthusiast desired the science fiction TV series to make a comeback. The show followed a team of explorers traveling through an alien portal network, and while it was canceled in 2011, it still has a devoted fanbase. With new interest in sci-fi shows and reboots being popular, maybe it's time for Stargate to return to our screens.
4. Fringe (2008)
It's been nearly a decade since Fringe went off the air, but fans of the beloved sci-fi series still hope for a revival. The show, which blended horror, drama, and thriller elements into a captivating narrative, was a true original. It followed a team of FBI agents investigating bizarre phenomena and paranormal events, often involving alternate realities and parallel universes. The show had a devoted following, and it was ultimately canceled after five seasons, leaving fans longing for more. For this particular fan, the hope is that the series will return one day and do justice to the incredible story it once told.
5. Lie to Me (2009)
Have you watched Lie to Me? This show, which aired from 2009 to 2011, was known for its unique approach to character development. It starred Tim Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, who could read people's body language and micro-expressions to solve crimes. Despite its loyal fanbase, the show was canceled after three seasons, leaving fans craving more. If you're a nostalgic enthusiast of Lie to Me, you probably hope the show will make a comeback.
6. Revolution (2012)
Revolution was a TV show that depicted a post-apocalyptic world where all forms of electricity had ceased to exist. The show had a talented cast and a promising premise, but unfortunately, it was canceled after only two seasons due to declining viewership. Despite its cancellation, fans of the show still hold out hope for a revival. If you were a devoted admirer of Revolution, you're not alone in your desire for the show to return and continue the journey in that exciting, dystopian world.
7. Gargoyles (1994)
If you are a child of the 90s, you might remember the animated TV series Gargoyles. One nostalgic commentator expressed their fondness for the show and suggested that it would be amazing to see it return. Unfortunately, the show was discontinued due to low ratings, which the commenter believes was due to its late-night time slot. With streaming platforms providing new opportunities for old shows, perhaps Gargoyles could find new life and capture the hearts of a new generation.
8. Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2016)
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency was a show that captured the hearts with its eccentric characters and off-beat humor. Based on Douglas Adams' novels, the science fiction detective series had a dedicated fanbase, with one such fanatic expressing excitement at the possibility of the show's return. Despite being canceled in 2017, efforts to find a new home for the show have continued, with the hope that the intricately interconnected storylines will continue to delight audiences for many seasons to come.
9. Happy Endings (2011)
Do you remember Happy Endings? Well, there is a fan out there who is passionate about the show and believes it deserves a second chance. This show was praised for its witty writing, clever humor, and a fantastic ensemble cast. Unfortunately, it struggled to find a consistent audience during its initial run from 2011 to 2013. The fan believes the show was ahead of its time and could have been a massive success with the right promotion and timing. If you haven't watched Happy Endings yet, try it and join the fan, hoping the show will return someday.
10. Mindhunter (2017)
Mindhunter was an amazing TV show that explored the psychology of serial killers, but sadly it was canceled after only two seasons.
