The 10 Most Devastating Cancellations

As promised, our countdown of the 10 most devastating cancellations. We would love you to check it out.

It’s worth noting that this is a very personal list, and it’s OK if you disagree and your favourite cancelled show isn’t listed here. Feel free to throw it in the comments and make us feel stupid for forgetting it!

Also worth mentioning that most of the shows we chose didn’t make it past 1 season, which excludes shows like Arrested Development, Chuck and Community from appearing here. This is because while they were sad to see cancelled, it’s hard to be as devastated when you have a good strong back catalogue of episodes.

And the last thing I wish to add regarding this video is that there were some other shows we really wanted to include, but they just didn’t quite make the cut, these honourable mentions are Awake, Jericho, Better Of Ted, Alphas, Party Down, Undeclared, The Good Guys and The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

As always remember to subscribe to our channel for more content like this and our upcoming webseries Writing Space.

    Thank you so much for this video! I can't believe how many of these I have never seen or heard of. I don't know how, but now I am going to watch all of these. I appreciate the mention of Freaks and Geeks, I was in the eighth grade when I saw the show in its original run and was madly in love. The show was really well done. I watched it with my younger brother and parents. It was actually a family show for us. For my brother and I who were currently going through our "growing pains" years, and my parents who had lived their young adult lives in the 70's and 80's. Our entire family was very heart-broken to see the show go, but I guess as I can see from this list, the good die young. Great mention of Better Off Ted as well. I am sad to say I missed Better Off Ted and Firefly until much later. Like you said, I am "part of the problem." Great video, though, I love the work you two are doing.
