Cancelled: The Shows We Wish Had Gotten One More Season!

(Before It's News)

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. 

Kolchak: The Night Stalker

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!

Earth 2

This show ran from 94 to 95 – one season, but SciFi lovers were mourning its disappearance. A team of folks were sent to an earth-like planet in hopes of curing an illness called “the syndrome.” The group crash lands and finds a mixed welcome from the environment and those who occupy the planet. 

A playlist of episodes can be found on YouTube. 


This ensemble cast was on board a spaceship with a bunch of individuals on various sides of politics and ethics. This SciFi show was launched in 2002 and only made 11 of its 14 episodes planned, and then it was cancelled. It left a lot of viewers dangling in the wind and feeling something unfair happened, as much worse shows continued their seasons. 

Stark Raving Mad

This very witty sitcom about a horror writer and uptight editor had only one season from 1999 to 2000. The writing was fantastic for this show, the acting really dazzling with Tony Shalhoub and Neil Patrick Harris. The misanthropic moody horror author and the OCD status-climbing editor were a perfect mix. I have no idea how the show got cancelled, but it goes down in history as my favorite sitcom (sorry “Big Bang Theory”).

Star Trek

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.

    Why do countless American people go along with the War on Iraq? Why do so many people call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern science of mind control and social engineering. It’s baffling to merely glance at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn’t being constructed for the greater good of humanity. Although there are a growing number of people waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to return to the slumber of dreamland.

    This is no accident; this is a carefully crafted design. The drive to dumb down the populations of planet earth is a classic art that existed before the United States did. One component to understanding and deciphering the systems of control is to become a student of the magicians of influence and propaganda. In order to defeat our enemies (or dictators), its imperative that we understand how they think and what they believe in.

    When people think about mind control, they usually think in terms of the classic “conspiracy theory” that refers to Project MkUltra. This program is a proven example of ‘overt mind control.’ The project had grown out of an earlier secret program, known as Bluebird that was officially formed to counter Soviet advances in brainwashing. In reality the CIA had other objectives. An earlier aim was to study methods ‘through which control of an individual may be attained’. The emphasis of experimentation was ‘narco-hypnosis’, the blending of mind altering drugs with carefully hypnotic programming.
