What Your Favorite Canceled TV Show Says About Your Personality

If there's one thing this so-called golden age of television has taught me, it's that when your favorite TV show gets canceled within this era, it stings all the more. Especially since, as I'm sure we can all vouch, there are some things on TV which frankly pale in comparison to shows canceled way too soon — shows that should've enjoyed many more seasons and run for many more years, but didn't. It's a true TV tragedy, my friends. However, it's not all a waste, because you can actually learn a lot about yourself by what your favorite canceled TV show says about you.

That's right, folks. Based on a totally legit science exacted from my own personal knowledge of TV shows, I absolutely know who you are deep down, based on whatever show you're still clinging to, despite the fact that it no longer exists. None of these shows aired beyond their third season, and many were canceled after only one. Fans of such short-lived shows have very distinct personalities indeed. I should know, I've been mourning the end of My So-Called Life since 1995. And like Angela just never getting over Jordan Catalano, that's a love affair that will never end.

So please, find your favorite show from the list below and discover some absolute, total truths about yourself.

My So-Called Life

Canceled after: One season

You're a sensitive dreamer who experiences life on a deeply emotional level. There's a chance you may also enjoy sighing dramatically to make a point and indulging in the simpler, finer things in life, like focusing on how your crush leans on things.

Clearly, you're incredibly smart, sassy, and sneaky, but you also likely use your skill set to benefit your local community and the world at large. People might fear you, but deep down you're a marshmallow.

Deadwood

Canceled after: Three seasons

You're tough and boisterous, but you've got a lot of heart. And sure, Westworld is great, but really all it does is remind you of all that untapped potential and those loose plot points left unresolved after Deadwood's cancellation.

Party Down

Canceled after: Two seasons

In all likelihood you have worked, or currently work, within the service industry and can completely relate to everything Party Down has to offer. You have big ambitions and whatever you're doing now to make a living is simply the means to an end until you can achieve them. You'll get there, champ.

Penny Dreadful

Canceled after: Three seasons

You're an absolute gothic goddess who likely sleeps in a bed surrounded by piles of beloved, dusty books and mysterious antique trinkets which are probably haunted.

Pushing Daisies

People know you for your dark sense of humor, but despite appearances, you're actually a supremely positive person with a secret passion for all things twee, kitsch, camp, and utterly, devastatingly romantic.

Girl Meets World

Canceled after: Three seasons

You're a sucker for nostalgia and likely still have the same group of besties that you had in high school. Family means everything to you, and you make an extra effort to keep in touch with everyone that means something to you.

Canceled after: One season

Though you're an eternal optimist, you're also always prepared for whatever unpleasant surprises life can hurl at you. Such as the best show ever being canceled in its infancy, or a beloved character being shockingly killed off on screen (dammit, Joss).

Freaks & Geeks

Canceled after: One season

High school provides some painful memories for you — ones which you're always eager to transform into some funny anecdotes whenever and wherever you can. You find humor essential for healing, and you value your friends above and beyond everything else.

Happy Endings

Canceled after: Three seasons

You feel woefully misunderstood and believe that the rest of your generation is too. But you're also totally beyond caring. Because whenever you meet up with your squad, you legitimately feel part of something way, way more important than all of that. And it's the greatest, right?

Dead Like Me

Canceled after: Two seasons

So, you're something of a pessimist? Big deal. The fact is you're actually an absolute realist, which means you know how to cope with whatever unpleasantness life has in store for you at any given time. But also, you're pretty damn hilarious too. Dry, but hilarious.

Bunheads

Canceled after: One season

You're a dancer at heart, even if you've never attempted a step on anything resembling a professional level. You love life and like to live impulsively, embracing every opportunity possible — but there's definitely someone in life you doesn't approve of that fact.

Hannibal

Canceled after: Three seasons

Horror is your thing, but you feel like so few people get it right these days. You're an artist at heart, and whenever an important life moment happens, you often play it back in your head in supreme slow motion. With, like, stag-human hybrids and stuff.

Canceled after: Two seasons

Dawson's Creek is still totally your jam, but so is vodka. You're supremely witty, stylish, and powerful. Plus, you dominate every party you enter.

Agent Carter

Canceled after: Two seasons

Sure, you know your history and your comic books, but you're also vehemently on board with the idea that there needs to be more female-led comic book stories told on screen. There's also a high chance that you're an absolute cosplay queen — something you should absolutely take more pride in.

Carnivàle

Canceled after: Two seasons

You consider yourself to be something of an artist, a little bit of an outsider, and a champion of the underdog. Friends love your unique sense of style and the wonderfully weird way that your mind works — and so they should.

Gone, but not forgotten. And just remember, guys, we're living in the glorious age of the reboot, and as such, you never know when any of these shows might be given a much-needed second chance at life.
