As networks continue to bring audiences new and exciting series, it also means that some long-running popular series begin to wind down. While every television season marks the beginning and end of several shows, early 2019 has brought the announcements for the final seasons of some of TV’s biggest shows and fans are shocked! As we head into the 2019 and 2020 television seasons, here are all the popular series that are quickly coming to an end:
21. One Day At a Time
After receiving praise from both fans and critics, Netflix cancelled the One Day at a Time revival in mid-March 2019, absolutely shocking viewers and leaving many disappointed. The cast and crew were quick to open up about their surprise and heartbreak over not being picked up for a fourth season, while many are stunned that the season three finale now serves as the series finale. “It’s been a great honor to work with the legendary Norman Lear on One Day at a Time. I’ve personally spoken with Norman and co-creators Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce to express my gratitude to them, all the writers, the dedicated crew and the cast, including the brilliant Justina Machado and dazzling Rita Moreno, for creating a series with such humor, heart and humanity,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said Thursday in a rare cancellation statement. “This was a very difficult decision, and we’re thankful to all the fans who’ve supported the series, our partners at Sony and all the critics who embraced it. While it’s disappointing that more viewers didn’t discover One Day at a Time, I believe the series will stand the test of time.” Shortly following its cancellation, One Day at a Time was revived by Pop TV, which made it the first Netflix series that was cancelled only to be revived by a cable network.
