    8 A+ TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs, And 7 F- Characters Who Should've Been Written Off


    Hey everyone! I'm Hannah, and I love watching TV. What I've learned from my countless hours spent staring at a screen is that I feel very strongly about the characters I watch. Some characters really have a star quality that leaves me wanting more, even after their arc reaches a natural end. On the other hand, some characters just don't "do it for me" and make me roll my eyes at the screen. So I've compiled a little list of the characters that I think could really hold their own in a spinoff, along with the characters that I think could've been written off their shows:

    1. SPINOFF: Alexis Rose, Schitt's Creek
