While there are many shows that run for several seasons, there are also some series that sadly never go beyond their first. Even though they may have had potential, the decision to axe these shows after their initial run often means fans are forever left hanging, wondering what could have been.
From older, cult favourite series to more recent cancellations, we have put together a list of some shows that deserved more than one season. Click through the slides to see if your favourite cancelled show made the cut!
These Are The Best Single Season Shows That Were Cancelled
Firefly ran from 2002-2003, and its cancellation wasn't the result of ratings. Instead, the Joss Whedon-created sci-fi show faced conflict behind the scenes and, rather bizarrely, an out-of-order airing schedule for episodes. With a cast that features Nathan Fillion, Morena Baccarin, and Alan Tudyk, Firefly gained a loyal fanbase known as "Browncoats". While it was never revived as a series, the cast did return for a follow-up movie called Serenity in 2005.
The Secret Circle
The Secret Circle hoped to be able to capitalize on the popularity of another one of L.J. Smith's CW book adaptations, The Vampire Diaries. However, the fantasy drama starring Phoebe Tonkin, Britt Robertson, and Shelley Hennig didn't perform as well as expected, and the show's budget was ultimately too high to continue funding.
