There are some shows that had long runs but we still wish we had more, and then there are shows that died way too prematurely. Let's have a look the premature burials of some favorite shows that we wish had one more season.
It's hard to believe that 1974-1975 was the season of “Kolchak: The Night Stalker,” and that was all! Most of us have memorized every episode and, yes, you can find them on YouTube, but it's always best to own the series to replay at your leisure.
Carl Kolchak was a reporter who stumbled upon unexplained murders and mysteries. He went up against his editor about the crazy content of his articles and often risked his own life to get to the truth.
Pretty much every paranormal investigator cut their teeth on this one season of the show. And, every one of us would have loved to see Kolchak deal with Yeti or the Slender Man, chupacabras and Mothman!
Perhaps no short-lived show ever left so much impact on so much of the population as “Star Trek.” It debuted in 1966 and ran only three seasons, but the characters became beloved idols.
There have been lots of versions of Star Trek on TV including “Voyager,” “The Next Generation,” and coming in 2017 “Discovery.” Still, we get nostalgic and wish we had just a little more time seeing what the dynamic crew would do in yet another spine-chilling episode. In fact, we wanted to know so much that eventually Star Trek movies were made with the original cast and in recent times a total redo of the characters in new scenarios with new actors.
There are a lot of shows that knew how to end the series and leave us feeling satisfied and others that overstayed their welcome, also known as “jumping the shark.” But the ones that haunt us ended abruptly and much too soon after we were emotionally invested in the characters and plot.
