It always hurts to bury a show before its time, but sometimes ratings overpower brilliance... or at least good, trashy entertainment. Yes, we all have a few beloved canceled shows that never got a fair shot in this cruel, cruel world. However, there are enough streaming services out there that can breathe life into a dead show, if not literally with a revival or extra season, then by keeping the memories alive by adding it on instant. That's why we're grateful for all the canceled shows available on Netflix right now. At least, I am.
But stress on "canceled." Naturally, there all kinds of ways a TV series can die. There are shows that left the air perhaps prematurely, shows were past their prime by Season 3 but lingered until several main characters had jumped ship in Season 8. There are even shows that get resurrected and rebranded with a whole new cast to keep a franchise living forever (here's looking at you, Degrassi). But when a show is canceled, even if it's after a respectable amount of seasons with a reasonable-ish ending, it stings. It seriously stings.
So, if you want to return to one of your guilty pleasure, gone-too-soon shows, this is what you can find on Netflix right now.
