Oh that tragic time of year, when most shows that won’t be getting renewed find out that their respective network has pulled the plug. One of our favorite things to do with these lists is to take bets as to whether or not any of these shows have a chance at being renewed or picked up by Netflix, Hulu or Amazon.
Below you’ll get the full list as well as our thoughts as to what ones have a shot at getting saved by Netflix, Hulu or Amazon.
Blood and Oil (1 season) – This show failed to get the ratings its ABC counterparts have. It doesn’t really fit the demographic of Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, so we’re guessing this one is done.
The Family (1 season) – Interesting concept, but after the first few episodes the show lost its edge. Not a good bet for Netflix, Hulu or Amazon.
The Muppets (1 season) – We could see The Muppets getting a chance on a streaming service, maybe a fit for Hulu?
The Whispers (1 season) – Not a chance.
Wicked City (1 season) – Not a chance.
Agent Carter (2 seasons) – This one probably doesn’t end up on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, but could it end up on ‘The CW?”
Galavant (2 seasons) – Not a chance.
Nashville (4 seasons) – Nashville has kind of run its course. Not to say Netflix, Hulu or Amazon couldn’t give it some breathing room, but it seems likely Nashville is done.
Castle (8 seasons) – Castle on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime would have been great news a few years ago. But any show that makes it eight years has done it’s job.
Cancelled Shows on CBS
Angel from Hell (1 season) – Not a chance.
CSI: Cyber (1 season) – CSI on Hulu maybe? We could see it being picked up there, but Netflix and Amazon are almost definitely no-gos.
Extant (2 seasons) – Not a chance.
Under the Dome (3 seasons) – We’d love to see Under The Dome picked up by Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, but so far there hasn’t been any word here.
Mike & Molly (6 season) – Mike & Molly had a good run, but is definitely done.
The Good Wife (7 seasons) – The Good Wife will be remembered as one of the better TV shows from the 2010s. Will Netflix, Hulu or Amazon renew the show though? No. Expect the seventh season of ‘The Good Wife’ on Netflix early next spring.
Person of Interest (5 season) – Had a good run, but Person of Interest is done.
Cancelled shows on FOX
Grandfathered (1 season) – Hulu and FOX seem to have a great relationship, so perhaps there’s a chance for that relationship similar to ‘The Mindy Project.’ But Mindy had a few seasons, Grandfathered probably doesn’t get that same privilege.
