5 TV Series Cancelled Too Soon
Everybody has one – a beloved TV series that just couldn’t make it. Here are five of the best TV series that never had a chance. 1. “Jericho” In a post-apocalyptic wasteland located around the fictional town of Jericho, Kansas, the characters of “Jericho” cope with disaster and fight to rebuild their lives. The show was cancelled after a first season with less than favorable ratings, but an enthusiastic group of fans rallied and convinced CBS to run a second, seven-episode season. Much to their dismay, the show went off the air again after that season. 2. “Deadwood” Winning eight Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe, “Deadwood” was clearly a fine piece of television. Sadly, complications surrounding contracts of cast members prevented the show from moving forward. 3. “Rome” This HBO series was a historical drama chronicling Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul, “Rome” was gorgeously filmed and had a very high production value. Unfortunately, the show’s high cost caused HBO to drop it from its lineup. 4. “Firefly” This show fell into a genre of its own. Fans describe it as a western space drama, and they are dedicated to the show’s single season. Despite having a large viewership and high ratings, the show was cancelled before the end of its first season. 5. “Freaks and Geeks” With a cast including James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jason Segel, it’s hard to go wrong with “Freaks and Geeks.” These popular stars nurtured their young careers in this series, and a wide fan base was cultivated during the show’s only season. Fans petitioned NBC to continue the series, but only three extra episodes were aired after the first season.

Jericho ended on such a cliff hanger, what do you think would have happened if it finished?
@coolestx133 Have you heard of "Lie to me"? I loved that show and then it suddenly got cut mid-season! erghhh... I was so angry at the network cutting the series :l
I love Jericho I would have loved to see what happens when the government got back on track
@coolestx133 I agree with these! I would have included "Dollhouse" and "Fringe." Fringe actually had a good run - but I still want more years later!
