7 Shows That Were Cancelled Not Once But Twice
Usually a show is cancelled once and then it’s game over; however, there have been a few instances in television history where a show has been cancelled more than once. We rounded up a list of 7 shows that were cancelled and then given a second shot, only to be cancelled again.
The critically acclaimed crime drama Southland aired on NBC for only one season in 2009 before it was cancelled due to falling ratings; however, the show was giving another shot when TNT purchased the rights to the show’s original seven episodes, as well as six completed episodes for its second season. The show stayed with TNT from 2010 until 2013 when it was cancelled after its fifth season.
Jericho was cancelled after its first season aired because of low rating but, after fans sent 20 tons of nuts in an effort to persuade CBS to change their minds, it was renewed for a second season with just seven episodes. Unfortunately, the ratings during season two were still incredibly low so, after all seven episodes were aired, the show was cancelled for a second time in 2008.
