Many successful shows have had spin-offs, and the Cheers’ spin-off, Frasier, was one of the most successful. Unfortunately for every spin-off like Frasier, there are a dozen that suffer the same fate as the Friends’ spin-off Joey, which is probably why networks sometimes get cold feet with these kinds of projects. We have a list of eight spin-offs that almost happened, but didn’t:
8. Faith the Vampire Slayer
When Buffy the Vampire Slayer was coming to an end, there were talks about Faith (played by Eliza Dushku) getting her own spin-off called Faith the Vampire Slayer; however, the project was scrapped because Dushku didn’t want to go forward with the project unless Joss Whedon was involved and he didn’t have the time. It’s too bad cause Faith was a really compelling character!
