Television shows can be a great way to tell a longer story, while introducing new actors and budding talent. When a show ends, usually the characters go the way of the Dodo bird and the series either becomes iconic or a new member of the TV show graveyard. Some shows on television come to an end through natural progression, while others reach a seedier demise. Sometimes fans are left craving for more, but it is still a better alternative than a dwindling storyline that cheapens the entire series. While people weren’t exactly thrilled with The Sopranos ending, at least the series wasn’t cancelled mid storyline, and fans still look back at the show with wide-eyed appreciation.
Other popular television series maintained such a massive fan base that the only natural progression was to transition onto the big screen. Shows like Entourage and Sex and the City progressed to the silver screen, and helped to keep fans entertained even after the series finale. However, not all television shows have been lucky enough to get through the entire storyline, and even fewer have made it onto the big screen.
Television execs are notorious for making blunders in series decisions, and some of the biggest shows of all time were turned down when they were originally pitched. Oftentimes a show’s true genius isn’t revealed until after the show has been cancelled, and fans are left wondering what happened to their favorite characters. Check out our list of 10 cancelled television series that would be amazing on the big screen, and see which shows would make a perfect transition to film.
10 Time of Your Life
9 Rookie Blue
8 Pushing Daisies
2 Dead Like Me
1 My So-Called Life
Airing on ABC, My So-Called Life was a drama that dealt with all the behind-the-scenes drama of the teenage characters and the parent’s marital relationship. Spawning the careers of both Claire Danes and Jared Leto, the show was released before its time and never reached its full potential. Since then, it has received a cult following and is a favorite for online streaming. The series left on a cliffhanger, leaving fans wondering whether or not Jordan and Angela would end up together or if she would finally see that Brian was the one. If it made it to the big screen, it would be interesting to see who the new parental relationship would be and what the teenagers would have as an all new set of problems.
