10 Shows That Got Cancelled And Had A Brilliant Cast

One look at the cast and you may think "Whoa! That's one show "; Their producers thought otherwise. This is no ordinary stars we're talking about major movie and television stars. Names such as Jessica Alba, James Franco, Nathan Fillion, Kiefer Sutherland, who were part of the ensembles of their respective shows. We take a trip down memory lane to looks at 10 of these shows that did propel some of its cast into super-stardom like Firefly did for Nathan Fillion and Police Squad for Leslie Nielsen.

Some of them inspired spin-offs, some made its cast into household names and some strengthened their stars' popularity, but none could stick around today. These TV series now have a cult following and feature on lists of shows cancelled soon or tv series that were too good to go. Between the 10 of them, we got science fiction, college drama and comedy, applied psychology, spirituality, post-apocalyptic scenarios, dysfunctional family comedy and what not. You name it, and these programs had it. 

Some got cancelled due to lack of viewers, some got mixed in controversies due to their content, some became fan favourites and some won an award after award. While some of these shows ran for 3 or more seasons, some couldn't get past one. 

 These shows remain in our memory, and one does wish a simple thing "RE-RUN."

This TV Series had it all ; Suspense, Drama, Thrills and Spills, Supernatural Stuff , a cast of Rachael Taylor and Vanessa Williams ; It just lacked more seasons

Solving crimes comes easy to Mr Sherlock now but he was getting the visions as an attorney along side the smokin' Natasha Henstridge . Many wonder why the show didn't get a proper conclusion.

Arrested Development

Six PrimeTime emmy's, One Golden GLobe, Jason Bateman, David Cross... What could have possibly gone wrong?

Police Squad

Police Squad

The Naked gun Franchise anyone? The first film of the series was " Naked Gun: From the files of the Police Squad". Leslie Nielsen must have been thankful.
