12 Cancelled CW Shows We Wish Would Make A Comeback
Television is in the age of the reboots and revivals and viewers are divided on how they feel about it. Some aren’t thrilled by the lack of original ideas coming to TV, but others are ecstatic to see the return of some of their favorite shows. The CW has largely stayed out of the reboot and revival craze, but with a reboot of Charmed on the way and a pilot order given for a reboot of Roswell and Party of Five, there are other CW shows fans would prefer to see make a comeback. Here are 12 shows from The CW we wish would return:
12. The Secret Circle
The CW has had some incredible successes with series such as Smallville, Charmed, The Vampire Diaries and more who won’t make this list because they had a really solid TV run, but there are some that it seems weren’t even really given a chance and that includes The Secret Circle. The Secret Circle premiered in September of 2011 and starred Britt Robertson as Cassie Blake, who moves to Chance Harbor, Washington to live with her grandmother and discovers she is a witch and the final member of a coven. With a strong start and a strong fan base thanks to the books that inspired the show, The Secret Circle was picked up for a full 22 episodes by The CW only to be canceled one day after the season finale aired. Although passionate fans began campaigns to save the show, it didn’t work, but fans would still love to see the show come back and succeed.
11. The Messengers
Out of the gate, The Messengers seemed like the perfect fit for The CW with its young, talented cast and supernatural story, but for some reason, the show could never really get off the ground. The Messengers was picked up by the network in 2014 and premiered in April 2015; however, only one month later The CW already pulled the plug and the show was canceled on May 7, 2015, but still aired all of the episodes. With the cancellation coming so fast, it gave no time for viewers to get invested and those who did knew there was nothing to look forward to after the season, making it a no-win situation for the show. Since it was never given a proper chance at success, fans would like to see The Messengers come back with a better time slot and be given more time to prove what it can do before the cord is cut.
