The untimely death of 11 popular TV shows
It seems that every year we have to say goodbye to some of our favourite shows either because the television network needs to drop the lowest rated ones or the prominent star moves on to bigger projects. Here is a list of this year’s retirees. House of Cards: Following a series of sexual harassment allegations against the show’s lead, Kevin Spacey, Netflix dropped the axe on its flagship show. The series will have a final season with Robin Wright as the main character. Bates Motel: Based on Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho,” the series was doomed to be short-lived. The critically acclaimed series starring Vera Farmiga ended this April. The Mindy Project: After Mindy Kaling’s show got cancelled by FOX in 2015, she took it to Hulu and the series ran for three more seasons. Unfortunately, the fan base started dwindling and the show got cancelled again. American Crime: One of ABC’s most critically acclaimed TV shows of all time, and winner of 16 Emmy nominations, “American Crime” did not make it past three seasons due to low ratings. The show dealt with stories of addiction, sexual harassment, racism and human trafficking 2 Broke Girls: Comedian Whitney Cummings’ show about an unlikely friendship between a rich college graduate who lost her fortune and a sarcastic street-smart waitress ran for six seasons. CBS pulled the plug on the show and the last episode aired this April. Teen Wolf: After a six season run, the MTV series ended abruptly with a cliffhanger. In the age of sequels, it might be hinting at a spin-off. The Vampire Diaries: The CW show started back in 2009. After eight seasons, the show aired its last episode this March. 24: Legacy: Groundbreaking TV show “24” had its fair share of reboots with the 2014 mini-series “Live Another Day,” “24: India” and now “24: Legacy.”  Although this series got cancelled in its first year, there’s already talk of yet another series under the “24” banner. Orphan Black: Emmy Winner Tatiana Maslany plays a woman, who discovers she’s one of many clones in “Orphan Black.” The show ran for five seasons before ending this year. Gypsy: Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup’s Netflix show about a therapist, who gets too involved in her patients’ lives, got cancelled just six weeks after its premiere. Bones: After 12 long seasons, Fox’s crime procedural “Bones” ended in March, not allowing the show runners to finish it the way they intended.
