TV Shows That Were Canceled Before Their Time by Laura Hunsaker

 Recently I was chatting with a friend about my new obsession: Lucifer on Netflix. Why oh why didn't I start this sooner! Which reminded me that's exactly what I said about Galavant, I mean seriously, why didn't I start that show sooner?
Which led us to the topic of TV shows that were cancelled before I even got into them. I'm behind the times I guess! 
So, which TV shows were canceled before their time?
I've heard a lot of people are still salty about Firefly, Sleepy Hollow, and Veronica Mars.

For me I only have a couple: 

Moonlight- A Vampire and an investigative journalist...how did this show not get more seasons?



Pitch- I'm not even a baseball fan and I loved this show! 



and Galavant. Oh Galavant. How I love thee. It's a musical comedy show with the Amazing Alan Menkin as the songwriter! My goodness what a fun show!




Lucifer lives on still ;) And I'm binge-watching this weekend! 



So how about you? Which shows are you still sad about not getting another season?



And if you want to see what is getting another "season"...it's my Fatal Instinct series. I'm almost finished with my third story, but you can grab the latest in the Last Chance Beach: Summer's End box set on Amazon.




She needs rest, he needs relaxation…


Jenny Travers wants a fresh start. Leaving the nightmares of her past behind her, she heads to Last Chance Beach. Renting the Sea Glass Cottage sounds peaceful and relaxing, which is exactly what she needs.


What she doesn’t need is a man.


Lieutenant Commander Scott Gordon was injured by an IED on his last mission, and while his leg has healed, it’ll never be strong enough to stay on his SEAL team. Renting the Sea Glass Cottage sounds like the perfect place to figure out how he’s going to handle his new normal. 


He never expected to find a woman in his bed.


A mix-up at the rental agency means Jenny and Scott are both renting the small cottage. Sharing a space with a stranger should be hard, yet they both feel more at peace than they have in months. 


Will their summer romance last, or is the magic of Sea Glass Cottage all they’ll have…

  1. You’ll be pleased to know that Veronica Mars is on cable...either Netflix or another premium channel. We just finished a new season. There are more planned! We’re hoping Lost in Space returns! As for Lucifer...the casting to Tom Wells = brilliant!

  2. Moonlight. Definitely not over that one being cancelled. I bought the one and only season and watch it when I need a fix. Thanks for reminding me to dust it off, Laura!

    2. A DVD is available on Amazon for about $30 but if you have access to streaming channels, look for it for free on CW SEED, a streaming channel I found on my Roku.

  3. Loved your post. I actually have Moonlight on DVD. Such a good show, and we've watched Lucifer from the beginning. Galavant? Not so much.

    1. You're so right! I can't believe I forgot one though-Sleepy Hollow was one I'm bummed about. I should have added it

  5. I loooooved Galavant! I wish it had gotten more seasons. For me, the one show that was canceled too soon had to be Battle Creek. I really liked the dynamic of their characters.

  9. Cool shows worth checking out.. I've heard so many good ones got cancelled.
    I am a fan of person of interest. It's well done. I think they cut it short, but it ended nicely.

  11. I seldom watch TV, but I did fall in love with Council of Dads. I am so sorry its being canceled. The content was excellent and actually worth watching. This decision really surprised me.

  12. I think many of these shows never made it to canadian tv stations. Must have a browse of netflix, but even that is limited.

    1. Oh that's a bummer! So we have different shows on Netflix? I didn't realize that

  13. I hardly watch anything, but I hated that Sports Night ended after two seasons and that The West Wing and Murder, She Wrote ever ended at all. I did cry when M*A*S*H ended, but so did everyone else who had a heartbeat. Fun post.

    1. The West Wing is so good!!!! I think my mom has all the Murder, She Wrote dvds and that is definitely a show I'd still watch
