I was sad when sense8 was cancelled as I was such a huge fun and there was so much more story to be told. The possibilities are infinite with this series and hopefully it is revived again some day.

I still miss Desperate Housewives. Once that ended I haven't watched a series regularly. That series, I never missed an episode.

I'm still hurting from the cancellation of Farscape, though god knows it was a long time ago.
Me too! I loved Farscape and The Invisible Man. My Friday night staples, back in their day.

My sorrow is compounded by the recent cancellations of Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries, and Grimm. :cry:

Yet, boring reality shows like Big Brother continue to remain on the air. I don't get it.

I've not stopped wishing they'll continue Teen Wolf... I didn't start watching the series immediately it came out but after sometime my friends convinced me to watch it. When I started I couldn't stop, waited patiently for a new episode every week till they decided to stop. :(

Heard of The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency? It was this powerhouse feminist series set in Botswana. They just did one season and ended on a cliffhanger.

I LOVE this show...and I still keep ranting about its cancellation to anyone who'll hear me.

I didn't even let myself finish Firefly when I discovered it was cancelled. I didn't want the heartbreak!

We all hate it when any of our favourite series gets cancelled. We especially hate it when said series is cut off at an extremely suspenseful point, with no explanation as to what happens to the characters.

I was disappointed when I heard that The Secret Circle, The Tomorrow People and to a lesser extent, Star-Crossed were aired with only a single season. All had wonderful plots and were widely liked by a large audience, so why did they cancel them? Does anyone else think these series would have had a good following and could have been big hits?
I only recently discovered Star-crossed on Netflix and really enjoyed the first season so I was disappointed to find out there was not going to be a second one. Another one I felt the same about was the show Between.

Farscape was a great show. I found it on Netflix after it had been canceled. I binge watched all of the seasons available.

Some shows I wish had continued are Dead Like Me, Firefly, and Longmire. They were all canceled too soon.
