8 Most Heartbreaking TV Cancelations of 2021

2021 was a bad year for (mostly) network television. 

There were plenty of promising shows that sadly bit the dust seasons before their time. 

Understandably, these cancelations were not well embraced by the specific fandoms, who rallied behind the shows as begged streaming services to save the shows and give them a proper ending. And truly, is a conclusion to a story we’ve invested weeks and months into such a big ask? Don’t we deserve it?!

Here are the 8 cancelations from the 2020-2021 TV schedule that stung the most:

 

Manifest

The plane drama was mapped for six seasons total, yet NBC pulled the plug after three seasons leaving fans on several major cliffhangers. The first two seasons of the series hit Netflix around the same time, and fans rallied behind the streamer hoping that it would follow the Callings and breathe new life into the series, but sadly, Netflix passed. Showrunner Jeff Rake is still optimistic that he will be able to secure some kind of ending for the show… and word is that Hulu has expressed some interest in resurrecting it, but only time will tell if that will come to pass. For now, we’re stuck wondering where the plane went for 5 years. 

 

Good Girls

If only robbing a grocery store would convince NBC to reverse this decision. Good Girls is another show that went from gearing up to air its season finale to preparing for a series finale. And audiences can only hope we’ll get the necessary closure. Though, it is a shame that no network wanted to pick up the show solely to continue seeing Manny Montana as Rio. 

 

Prodigal Son

After FOX canceled the serial killer drama starring Michael Sheen and Tom Payne, fan petitions were aplenty. Unfortunately. HBO Max recently passed on picking it up, which means that it remains permanently dead after two seasons. 

 

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Zoey and co. sang their final tune at NBC. The network canceled the musical comedy-drama after two seasons. There was talk of transitioning it to Peacock for its third season, but that plan didn’t come to fruition even amidst fan petitions to save the show. 

 

Debris

Every season, a supernatural, sci-fi thriller makes its debut on NBC, and almost every season, it gets canceled. Drawing inspiration from X-Files and Fringe, the series had potential but squandered it by not providing any answers to the overall mystery leaving fans confused and tuning out. Now, Finola and Bryan won’t ever know the truth about the mysterious wreckage falling from the sky, and neither will we. 

 

For Life

The series inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr. will not see a third series. The second season saw a drop of 38% in demo and 25% in viewership, so while the writing was on the wall for the low-rated series, it’s still a bummer. IMDB TV might be picking up the series, per TV Line.

 

Rebel

Not even Katey Segal or former Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff could convince ABC to give Rebel another chance. The cast and Vernoff rallied for the series about an unspoken woman who speaks up for what is right, but the network canceled the freshman drama due to poor ratings, which always seems to be the case. 

 

The Irregulars

The Baker Street Irregulars won’t be solving any more supernatural crimes. Enola Holmes may have been a hit for Netflix, but despite the show making it to the Top 10 the week of its premiere, the streamer decided against a second season. It’s truly a shame because season 1 provided some thrilling adventures.

9 TV Shows to Watch After Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is a time for reconnecting with friends and family and indulging in some delicious meals. 

But after all the turkey, sides, and pie is cleared off the plate, the only acceptable activity is binge-watching some feel-good TV shows. 

Here are some post-Thanksgiving dinner show suggestions:

 

Virgin River

You’ll be just as surprised as Mel to fall in love with the picturesque town of Virgin River. Come for the views, stay for Jack. 

 

Hart of Dixie

Dr. Zoe Hart arrives in Alabama looking for a fresh start and learns that the Southern way of living might actually be what’s best for her. 

 

Gilmore Girls

An unbreakable mother and daughter bond, a charming town that would make any Lifetime movie jealous… plus, an unspoken love for coffee? Say no more.

 

Selena + Chef

You might know her as a Disney Channel actress and pop star, but now, she’s adding chef to her resume. And since Thanksgiving is all about food, this is one show you don’t want to pass up. 

 

The Cleaning Lady

You might think it’s odd that a mafia crime drama made the list, but at its core, the series is about family and how far two dedicated and loving moms would go for their family. It’s a thrill from beginning to end! 

 

Walker

The modern-day update to the Chuck Norris classic hones in on family above everything, with a side of roundhouse kicks. 

 

A Million Little Things

A group from Boston bond under the unlikeliest of circumstances and get a much-needed wake-up call following the death of a close friend. 

 

La Brea

Though it falls into the “sci-fi mystery” category, La Brea hinges on a family determined to find their way back to each other despite all the obstacles standing in their way and all the sacrifices needed to be made.

 

Dream Home Makeover

If there’s ever a time to get inspired for a home makeover, it’s after the holidays (and during Black Friday when everything is on sale!) And the McGee family is the cherry on top! 

 

This Is Us

This is… a no-brainer. No show captures the essence of what it means to be a complicated, loving, flawed, and fulfilled family more than this NBC drama.

Dead to Me

When Is ‘Dead to Me’ Season 3 Coming Out?

When Is 'Dead to Me' Season 3 Coming Out?

There’s been a lot of buzz about the upcoming third season of Dead to Me, which will, unfortunately, also be the final season of the Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini-led comedy drama.

When Will Dead to Me Season 3 Premiere?

Well, the wait is thankfully almost over because the series is set to hit Netflix on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022. 

And that means, you’ll have the whole entire weekend to binge watch all 10 episodes to see how Jen Harding and Judy Hale’s adventures come to an end. 

It’s been a bit since new episodes aired, however, with Dead to Me Season 2 dropping on the streaming giant in May 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic along with Applegate’s MS (multiple sclerosis diagnosis) delayed the upcoming season significantly, so it’s understandable if you don’t actually remember where things left off. 

How Did Dead to Me Season 2 End? Let’s Recap! 

For starters, a dog digs up Steve Wood’s body with his brother, Ben, getting the dreaded call. Judy and Jen find the money that Steve was laundering for the Greek mafia behind the frames of Judy’s art paintings, which allows them to buy out the house and get a new car for Charlie with a shiny new bow on top. Unfortunately, on their way home, they get into an accident with another vehicle… and it’s revealed that the driver that hit them is Ben, who has an empty bottle of liquor by his side. He’s a little banged up, but he drives away.  This is honestly messy, so I’m glad we’re on the cusp of the new season. And on top of all of that, Charlie finds the letter that Jen wrote (and Judy didn’t destroy), which probably includes way too much information about what’s going on.

Applegate on Filming the Final Season

Applegate, who recently received her much-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, told Variety that while filming the new season of the Emmy-award winning drama amid her MS diagnosis was challenging (she had to use a wheelchair to get to set because walking was difficult and painful), she remained dedicated to finishing out the story for fans, which we truly admire and are grateful for.

When the creative forces behind the show asked if she wanted to pull the plug since they felt like they were “torturing her,” she replied, “But I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, no: We have to finish this story. It’s too important to our hearts; too important to our souls. And we have to give this gift, not only to ourselves — there are people that love these characters, and we’ve got to let them have their closure too.’ So, if that meant me having to take a break in the middle of the day so I could go sleep — or me just leaving because I couldn’t do anymore — then that’s what we had to do.”

And knowing how much dedication went into it will make watching this season so more rewarding and gratifying.
