TV shows come and go. Each of them serves a different purpose. Drama series are there to stick us to the screen, always waiting for the next episode, game shows allow us to think with the competitors, and, if we get there, to win lots of prizes, documentaries educate us, while that comedies fill us with laughter, simply because life can never be this serious. A world without visual entertainment would be incredibly sad and boring.
While some of these shows last for decades, there always comes a time when we have to say goodbye. The saddest thing comes when the good shows, which we were waiting for the next season, are not repeated. It’s devastating and heartbreaking for a passionate fan. It’s happened a few times in the past, and we’re here to highlight some of those shows that were entertaining, but not enough to win a second season, according to network executives.
