  • Updated 4 months ago
There are 33 Shows that were cancelled long before most fans wanted them to go. Pick one or some, and tell us why you think it or they were/was cancelled. Will put those reasons in with each title. If you keep them brief, multiple reasons can be added.

Have fun.

Description:
For what ever reason the shows in this poll were cancelled way before fans were ready to let them go. Some were moved by network executives thinking that a new favored show needed the time slot that the eventually cancelled show held. Some of our Poll Board Members have supplied what they think led to these shows ejections from the schedule.

Whatever the reason may have been, which one of these cancelled shows is your favorite?

Ed,

I think the Battlestar Gallactica you would be referencing would be the original (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076984) from 1978. Also, FYC: Agent Carter (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3475734).

No, I really did mean the third Battlestar Galactica (2004)
Will add Agent Carter
Care to write a small reason why you think it was cancelled? Or any of the other 33 titles?
Thanks

Lie to Me (2009–2011)
"They Ran out of Lies"
Terra Nova
The T-Rex union went on Strike
Jericho (2006–2008)
They ran out of gas to power the cars and trucks
Fringe (2008–2013)
They ran out of names for the observers because the writers started with September.

The Tick Reason: Audiences were ticked off!  :D

Suggestion: Werewolf (1987)  A show I really love, too bad it only lasted less than season with no wrapping up.

You could include Swamp Thing. Cancelled after just one episode aired, but for what I have read an incredibly good show.
I want to watch it, even if I know it won't last.
