TV Shows That Won’t Be Returning Next Season

By Carlos Delgado

Television shows have it rough. They start off life as the brainchild of a creator. If they’re lucky, they get picked up by a network, but that’s only half the battle. From there they must compete with other shows–some established, others trying to get a foothold themselves–and they must perform against these show or else they will unceremoniously be dropped, save for the few that become hits and earn the right to longevity and a memorable finale.

How cutthroat is it? Even The Muppets, a show with tons of recognition and guest stars of the highest caliber, is being cancelled after just one season. It’s a sad reality that most will come and go without you ever knowing they existed.
