    I think Lucifer deserves one more season at least, but I guess show never gathered much audience.

  2. esmamo says:

    NO .. not The Expanse 🙁

  3. RJ Neel says:

    “12 Monkeys” is the best show Syfy has ever offered, hoping it to be a phenomenal finale.

  4. x1a2leader says:

    hey admin.. please add the expanse .. Syfy has declined to renew the series to season 4
    so saddddd.. it stops at three.
    i hope netflix or others pick up lucifer and the expanse.

  5. Ashay Kulkarni says:

    Plz don’t cancel Quantico it is a good series

  6. reza_m47 says:

    just imagine if Netflix was to pickup Lucifer. even the thought makes me giggle

  7. Good People says:

    the crossing is bad, but i watch them now.. it’s intriguing if the air time shrink into 30 minutes per episode… i’m just saying..

  8. Asric says:

    I thought that The Expanse was cancelled also. They are shopping it around, but like Brooklyn Nine-9, it was cancelled. Sure, B99 is coming back on NBC, but that was some 11th hour dealings, and no contracts have been signed or anything yet…

  9. ikki says:

    Not the mick too :'(

  10. TONY STARK says:

    Why CW Arrow didnt get cancelled….show got worsened

    • Good People says:

      Some People just don’t watch the show at all, Like Me, brother

    • PSAdmin says:

      because it is part of a big universe of Arrowverse, that’s why there’s no reason to cancel that show. Arrowverse gonna have complication without it.

      • Dragoonstorm1 says:

        There IS a reason to end it, I mean they originally only set it up for a 5-year plot, remember the flashback format? but eh after that they just throw out logic and keep it pffft

  11. Dreamer says:

    is there any reason to watch tv now our favorite shows are all getting canceled one by one especially ash vs evil dead which was half an hour of fun should’ve continued forever there are tons of fucked up shows which are there since the beginning of time nobody watches them and they are there shamelessly and in the other hand shows which deserve to stay go canceled without any reason.

  12. MissTrisBliss says:

    Lucifer/Tom Ellis and Chloe gave me a *Reason* to LIVE ~~ weekly *and* yearly. I feel like slitting my throat now; but if I do, I won’t be around if/when They realize their Grave Error in judgment and recall this far-seeing show that is well beyond its time in maturity, transparency, and family value — or if it gets picked up by those with higher brain function and vision.

    The last two episodes were *groundbreaking* and SO deeply inundated with Key Threads intricately woven through it about the Nature & True Secret to Life, it may not be a Concept (Creation = Evolution = Quantum Physics ~ {see end of comment}) that the Bleating Masses of Sheep can grasp (yet) — but it should ~*200%*~ be something that is broadcast to them for *Precisely* that very reason — to Educate our imbecilic American & global public!!

    {Creation = Evolution = Quantum Physics ~ All three ‘theories’ are *Different SIDES* of the *SAME COIN*, people! All three ARE TRUE and DO NOT actually Conflict – in fact, *they Actually Fit Together like Pieces of a Puzzle to make SENSE* of the Deepest Riddles our civilization has always struggled to answer!}

    To say this was my “favorite show” simply does not even come *close* to doing it the respect, honor, and justice it deserves. Someone, please send this comment to someone who can bring back the show!!! I will try to hold off on leaving this plane of existence and attempt to cling to some shred of Hope that this Consciousness-Raising, Enlightening show will return ASAP ~~ and PLEASE, if you MUST end it, at least give us a final MOVIE with Real Closure and a Satisfying AND *HAPPY* Ending!!

    …& ideally, a way to potentially Restart it later!!

    • Red Hand Devil says:

      I’m pretty confident it will be picked up, Tris – it’s way too good a show for that not to happen.

      Just take it easy & think positively – everything will be sweet, regardless. Never worry about anything in life that might not happen – you’re just wasting your time & energies on an uncertain negative situation that may well have a very positive outcome.

      Take care & try not to stress so much. ‘Don’t worry be happy’ 🙂

      • RJ Neel says:

        Hopefully. I remember “Forever” too had a decent fan following but still got canceled. Expanse season
        3 has been a bit dull. I still feel 12 monkeys is the most underrated yet the best Syfy show out there even better than BSG.

        • Red Hand Devil says:

          Yeah, ‘Forever’ was a great show (loved it) – but it was it’s debut season though & renewal’s are more times than not, touch & go. That was a stupid decision though. ‘Lucifer’ has gone through 3 Seasons, so it’s a staple fans show & that’s shocking it got cancelled. Even more shocking with ‘Brooklyn-Nine-Nine’ – with it havin’ gone through 5 Seasons & at the top of it’s game (like ‘Lucifer’), aswell.

          I can’t understand why so many of these cancelled shows never get picked up – most are lost forever (pardon the pun). Is it a case of no-one wants to touch ‘Sloppy Seconds’, or some shit?!

          The most controversial/gut-wrenching cancellation for all Sci-Fi nuts, is ‘Firefly’ I’m not a Sc-Fi nut per se, but what a fantastic show that was (Guardians of the Galaxy-esque) & it only got 1 Season (14 eps). That’s those fuckers at Fox again.

          There was such an outcry about it being cancelled, but Universal made a great movie out of it (‘Serenity’) to appease the fans:

      • MissTrisBliss says:

        Thank you much, sir. Trying! (=

        I like your username… 😉

        • Red Hand Devil says:

          You’re very welcome & keep the chin up 🙂

          My username is a sporting combo. I think most folks have online usernames that mean something to them – that was always the ol’skool way, anyway 🙂

          Christ know’s what ‘PSAdmin’ is all about though – he doesn’t work here ffs lol

  13. Dragoonstorm1 says:

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D might get cancelled ;-; .<

    • Dragoonstorm1 says:

      oddly enough, this wasnt the whole comment that I typed lol. And it was cropped even while waiting for approval, didnt know how to delete xD

      Even Timeless is bound to get cancelled, unless someone else picks it up

      Both are not confirmed yet, and Timeless apparently had a cliffhanger ending (waiting for Webrip XP), but yeah, still. Very sad indeed.

    • Dragoonstorm1 says:

      This just in: AoS renewed for Season 6, but it’ll be only 13 eps long so prolly last and final renewal then.
      Why half sized? Guess that’s the real IW tie-in. SNAP? Perfectly balanced, as all things should– nooooooooooooooo
      welp, better than no AoS.

  14. Radiohead says:

    Thanks a lot for compiling this handy list. I guess adventure time, portlandia, the americans and halt and catch fire had run their magnificent courses but it’s a shame about deadpool, ash and mozert in the jungle.

  15. Red Hand Devil says:

    Cheers for this, fellas 🙂

    There’s alot of shows cancelled there & tbh – there’s only a large handful that interested me/that I watched anyway; but I know what it’s like to get engrossed in a show & then it’s gone, so condolences to Members who have any length of cancellations on that list. That’s a proper bummer 🙁

    Not on that list is ‘Lethal Weapon’ – but it may aswell have been cancelled after Clayne Crawford got fired & they’re bringing in that gobsh*te Seann William ‘Stifler’ Scott of ‘American Pie’ fame. Hollywood has a sh*tload of snowflakes (actors, producers, executives etc.) that have truly bit of their noses to spite their faces by demanding Clyne be fired because of “bad behaviour”. That show is heading straight for the sh*tter now. F*cking pussies!!

    Out of that list:

    ‘The Brave’ – Not a classic by any stretch, but I loved this low-budget show & other shows of this type. It 1st aired a day apart from the 1st episode of ‘Seal Team’ – so I was in my element. Was gutted to see it axed.

    ‘Deception’ – Have this downloaded (from here of course – where else?! 🙂 ), but have yet to watch it. It looks fun, but we’ll see.

    ‘Designated Survivor’ – Loved this show. Again, it’s not a classic, but the plot was a very unique one & I always looked forward to a new ep. Bummer it’s cancelled – just when next season looked to be based around a Presidential Election. Hopefully it’ll get picked up.

    ‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ – Have both seasons downloaded from here, but have yet to watch any of it. It looks fun & more than a tad wacky. Right up my street 🙂

    ‘The Exorcist’ – Have only watched about 5/6 eps of Season 1 & in all honesty – it’s one helluva freaky show. They really left no stone unturned with the details – proper bad-ass Satan sh*t that f*cks with your head. Need to be in a particular mood to get stuck into this one – it’s hardcore evil subject matter & it’s brilliantly done. I’m gonna have to ‘Man the f*ck Up’ & stop being such a pussy 🙂

    ‘House of Cards’ – One of the best shows of all-time. Gutted it’s been axed; but Spacey royally f*cked up & it’s massive loss to all the show’s fans. Atleast we’re gettin another season out of it – but without Spacey. I really can’t see Season 6 being anything other than average to p*ss-poor without Spacey, tbh. N.B. Everyone knew by the look & manner of Spacey, that he was a proper sleazy creepy perv – so I really don’t understand all the “shock-horror” of what’s gone on with him & his antics.

    ‘The Looming Tower’ – Outstanding show – very interesting watch. The CIA really come off as a bunch of egotistical Rogue Agents & the ‘9/11 Commission’ findings, proved that beyond doubt. No real surprise there’s not gonna be Season 2 – because the show (Season 1) is based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book & the story has been fully completed from start to finish with those 10 episodes, anyway. Season 2 wouldn’t make any sense, whatsover – there’s nothing left to tell.

    ‘Lucifer’ – Another outstanding show (a lot of fun to watch) & an absolute brain-fart decision by Fox to cancel it – who are notorious for this kind of stupidity & screwing with fans’ deep affiliation to popular shows: Hopefully it’ll get picked up!

    ‘Quantico’ – Dragged my stupid sorry ass through Season 1, because I got sucked into this show from the 1st ep & I wanted to know (have closure, somewhat) who the conniving-treasonous bast*rds were – that was the only reason I watched this pathetically sh*t show of sh*ttness. This show really did my friggin head in, in the same vein as it did when I had to suffer ‘Greys Anatomy’ with an ex-Girlfriend. Pure mental torture those shows. I never watched Season 2 because of the severe head-f*ck. I suffered enough & job was done after Season 1. In fact, I’d rather chew a sh*tload of Wasps & wash them down with a pint of Donkey p*ss than watch Season 2. There’s not one unattractive actor/actress/extra in the whole of Season 1 either – it’s like they were all plucked from f*cking Modelling Agencies with bollox-all acting abilities or coaching. It reminded me of that other sh*t-show ‘Beverly Hills 90210′ – but on steroids! Yer main woman Priyanka Chopra can’t act for sh*t – she’s pure cringeworthy & all she does is pout/pose, tries to look pretty all the time & most of the lines from the other actors entails them havin’ to constantly tell her how pretty & badass she is, whenever she’s not telling them. Absolute joke of show & good bloody riddance!

    ‘Shades of Blue’ – Decent show with a boatload of flaws, imo. Massively drags it’s arse. Still an enjoyable watch, though. Have only watched Season 1 & one or two ep’s of Season 2 – so it could straighten itself out & have less irritations for me. That blonde, smug male FBI tw*t does my head in – he’s got such a punchable face. A face that looks like he’s just licked p*ss off a Nettle Bush – then went down on a Scorpion for a bet & is absolutely chuffed to f*ck about himself. Smug pr*ck!

    ‘Taken’ – Again, it’s in the “Not a classic by any stretch” category, but I found it very enjoyable & Jennifer Beals is such a sh*t-hot Milf. Bummer it’s gettin cancelled; but Season 2 nosedives compared to Season 1 for obvious reasons if you’ve watched this show & you’re up-to-date with it. Looks like they’ve really shot themselves in the foot by not sticking to what made Season 1 so entertaining. My guess is, their budget must have been seriously reduced when they made Season 2. Shame – really liked this show!

    ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ – This irritated the absolute sh*t out of me most of the time; but again, like Season 1 of ‘Quantico’ – I got sucked in with the desire to find out who the culprit was. Like Spacey with ‘House of Cards’ – this show got axed because of the smug as f*ck Jeremy Piven (who also has a very punchable face) & his fondness for the odd bit of sexual harassment – which he denies/denied; but again, like Spacey – he looks like a creepy, sleazy, smug, pervy w*nker & it’s no surprise to me that he’s been accused by multiple women of being a complete sexual deviant assh*le! Would have watched Season 2 though & anyone that’s watched Season 1, will know why!

    • Dragoonstorm1 says:

      Dirk Gently is brilliant.
      Based on the books by the author of The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, but not direct adaptation, and done really really well actually.
      sigh I wish it wasn’t cancelled… Total wacky random fun is Douglas Adams’ style, and they captured that well.

      • Red Hand Devil says:

        Oh yeah – nice reminder, mate. I remember reading that when I was lookin’ into what all the hype was about, before I downloaded a taster ep. But after lookin’ into the show – I just decided to download the whole thing, because it looks class.

        Great they got as far as 2 Seasons, though – much better than just the one; but that’s obviously no consolation to your goodself. Proper bummer it’s cancelled – it’s highly regarded from what I can see & we need more of these wacky shows to push the boundaries.

        It’s bizarre that I haven’t gotten around to watchin’ it yet. Still though, i’ve 18 ep’s to proper binge on – including the countless other titles i’ve also accumulated for a binge, too 🙂

        • Dragoonstorm1 says:

          Yeah, plus I believe both seasons are tightly contained and are good on their own.
          And remember: nothing will make sense until the last episode of the season, because after all: Everything is connected 😉
          Enjoy your binge!
