These TV series didn't get a second season. But they should have. Check out our list!
Freaks and Geeks
The year was 1999. The network was NBC and a couple of guys, Judd Apatow and Paul Fieg, were involved in producing this fish out of water take on 80s high school students. Starring (gasp) Linda Cardinelli, John Francis Daley, James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segal, Martin Starr and Busy Phillips -- it still couldn't get the traction required to score a second season.
Co-created by Amy Sherman-Palladino (of Gilmore Girls fame) Bunheads aired on ABC Family. It starred Sutton Foster as a dancer past her prime who married a fan; a fan who had a lot of money and whisked her to the coast to live a fantasy life. Co-starring a bunch of great young dancers and Kelly Bishop (GG mom), the series was held together by performances, fast and witty dialog and dancing. We have yet to see any of the stars make a similar splash elsewhere.
The Secret Circle
In 2011 The CW aired the series about witches gathering where their parents did before them and creating a coven revealing special powers. Starring Britt Robertson, Thomas Dekkar, Phoebe Tonkin, Shelley Henning and Chris Zylka, the only good thing to come out of its cancelation was the continued careers of the stars (with an exception or two) on series that respected their talent.
At a time when legit high school drama Dawson's Creek was on the top of the food chain, circa 2000, someone thought it wise to make a SATIRE about a high school drama. Grosse Pointe missed the mark in terms of demographics and didn't last past the first season.
No Ordinary Family
Michael Chiklis! Julie Benz! No Ordinary Family was NOT one of Greg Berlanti's finest moments, despite the star power he pulled in for the series.
This past season the brothers-in-the-military comedy struck a cord with Fox viewers. Unfortunately they were passionate but few. The entire production team including the cst were 1000% behind their work and it showed. Created by Kevin Bliegel (Cougar Town), the series starred Geoff Stults and Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars). None of that helped.
