It can be disheartening to get too involved with your favorite TV shows. The television landscape changes so frequently and suddenly that you can find yourself depressed that your favorite show wont be coming back for another season.
These cancellations can happen in the blink of an eye, and it can hit people quite hard. Here are 8 shows that I feel were cancelled before their time was truly up.
Futurama first landed on televisions across America in 1999. After four seasons it was cancelled, but was later brought back for an additional season. It has been cancelled on a couple of occasions but always seems to be resurrected in some form or fashion. It was finally put to rest after the seventh season, and that had a lot of fans fuming. If other shows similar too it like: American Dad, The Simpsons, and Family Guy can last for decades, why not Futurama?
This spin-off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer was "situationally" cancelled. After the fifth season, creator Joss Whedon went to the network to try and get them to guarantee another season early so that he could keep everyone working on the show employed. It was this that undid the show, the network's hands were tied and they had no other choice, even though the show was still putting up impressive numbers from a ratings standpoint.
If you were growing up in the early 90s, you likely loved this show. No one is really sure what caused the show's producers to decide to only run it for three seasons, but of all the shows on this list, it definitely had the most depressing final episode of all time. The series closed with the Sinclair family knowing that they were all about to die...
4. Dead Like Me
The show followed two characters as they worked as grim reapers in Seattle, Washington. "George" dies in the first episode of the series and then spends the rest of the series working to remove people's souls just before they die, and move them on to the afterlife. The show was cancelled due to a "lack of quality" and they thought that those problems would only increase over time. Either way it was a great show while it lasted.
The next four shows were just as a good, if not better than these...
