A staggering number of fan-favorite television shows have been canceled over the past year, and most of those shows came from The CW. But there have also been Netflix shows and cable shows whose runs have been paused for various reasons beyond fans’ control.
Netflix has earned a reputation as the savior of TV shows after saving the likes of Lucifer, Cobra Kai, Manifesto, and last) girl5eva from the cancellation. There have been other instances where the streamer has come to the rescue of early canceled shows, but it’s not always the name of their game.
This year the cancellations of shows are like star girl Westworld, and those of Netflix first kill rocked fans everywhere. We’ve seen a shocking number of fan campaigns online, but very few (if any) have resulted in another network or streamer – namely Netflix – picking up any shows.
Shows Netflix is unlikely to save 2022
Can one of the unjustly canceled TV series find a new home? We dive into the facts to determine the likelihood of your favorite shows making a comeback. Some canceled shows stand a better chance than others, but things aren’t looking good for these five shows.
Despite the fans behind the CW series star girl In order to hoist season three and lock down a fourth season, the network announced that the DC superhero series would end with season three. According to series star Brec Bassinger, the decision was made in May and hinted that the series could have been saved on a streaming service, but a deal never materialized.
As much as fans would love to see a fourth season of the show, Netflix won’t be the last-minute savior. First off, the show was never streamed on Netflix, instead citing HBO Max as its streaming home. The season 3 finale, created in preparation for a series finale, will be the final episode of the series, but let’s hope it won’t be the last we see of the character.
Although the cancellation of fan-favorite series HBO western world came as quite a surprise, there really is no world where the cable network has a series saved by Netflix. There is no precedent for this type of trade and it is unlikely to be created in this particular scenario.
HBO canceled western world after four seasons due to declining ratings, although most fans were expecting an extension of the fifth (and most likely final) season. According to Deadline, the Season 5 cast is still getting paid, but maybe they’ll rally to somehow create an ending for the series. But it won’t be on Netflix.
I’m sorry, but the doors to Carrington Manor have been locked forever. The CW canceled the five-season reboot of the primetime soap in May 2022, with the series finale airing in October 2022. dynasty ended up tying everything up in a surprisingly intimate little bow.
demonstrate his ability, dynasty Season 5 hit Netflix eight days after the series finale and shot straight into the streamer’s top 10 ranking. International fans always came to this show and effectively kept the series on the air for five years. However, the impressive streaming numbers aren’t a starting point for Netflix to save the show. It’s just a lap of honor.
Roswell, New Mexico
Just like with Dynasty, The CW has also canceled Roswell, New Mexico in May 2021. The series based on the series of books that inspired the 1999 series Roswell, aired four episodes, which were adored by fans. But the cancellation was a business matter for the network and its studios.
not how Riverdale, All American, In The Dark, and Dynasty, these are shows from The CW that are very popular on Netflix, Roswell, New Mexico has never been a truly massive hit on the streamer in the same way. It’s extremely unlikely that Netflix would fall for it unless they were willing to rescue one of The CW’s other fallen series Roswell.
In 2022, Netflix canceled quite a few of its original series, but perhaps the cancellation that hurt the most was that of fantasy horror series first kill. Upon release, the series garnered a rabid and passionate fandom that campaigned for a second-season renewal. Unfortunately, Netflix has dropped the axe.
Since it’s owned by Netflix, it’s extremely unlikely that the series could be rescued by a competing streaming service. That means Netflix bringing the series back from the dead would be the only option, but based on the streamer’s silence on that front, first kill unfortunately seems to be over for good.
