    These 17 Shows Deserved Better Endings Than What They Got

    I miss the original Teen Titans everyday.

    Recently on r/AskReddit user, u/dclancy01, posed the question, "If you had the power to revive one TV show for a final season, which would it be?"

    So many shows were ended before their time, so let's get into some of these:

    1. Marco Polo

    Netfilx

    "That show was phenomenal and I still don’t understand why it didn’t get more of a following or another season." 

    — u/bluelikewords


    "The critics and phony critics all shat on it for some reason. I thought it was really good and it was absolutely beautifully filmed must’ve cost a fortune to make though!"

    20th Century Fox

    "I'd prefer it to have never ended and still be going 20 years later while we all spend our time arguing about if the quality has gone downhill and which season was really the peak."

    5. My Name Is Earl

    NBC

    "Canceled on a cliffhanger, plus I just want more. I watch the series once a year since it got cancelled. Still amazing." 

    — u/urnialbologna

    "So much agreeing with this. The last series will need to be about 150 odd episodes long though, Earl needs to finish that list!

    — u/OriWanKenobi

    6. Last Man on Earth

    FOX

    "I need closure."

    7. Santa Clarita Diet

    Netflix

    "It hasn't been cancelled that long so it wouldn't feel too weird, but we could get a conclusion to the story."

    u/DickieGreenleaf84

    "It really could have just one more season and I would have been so satisfied."

    u/Flameman1234

    8. Pushing Daisies

    ABC

    "This show was amazing. They messed up by cramping an entire story into one last episode."

    u/Hubsimaus

    "Such a perfect show that can be appreciated at any age. I fell in love with it in 5th grade when it originally aired and rewatched it recently and love it just as much."

    u/JohnJoanCusack

    9. Agent Carter

    "I loved this show, it's tied with Loki for my favourite Marvel series."

    10. DC's Legends of Tomorrow

    The CW

    "I fell off the other Arrowverse shows, but I think this one deserves a good ending!" 

    u/nitasu987

    "All it needs is just one more season to wrap up everything. Just one more. That's what the fans want. That's what the cast and showrunners want. To tell their story and bow out."

    11. Gravity Falls

    Disney

    "While I think the ending is perfect as it was, I wouldn’t mind a mockumentary style 'Where Are They Now?' special. Like just checking in with what everyone’s doing 10+ years after the events of the finale."

    u/LarkspurSong

    12. Ash vs. Evil Dead

    Starz

    "It didn't deserve to end the way it did. It ended on a cliffhanger with no resolution!"

    u/IamMoos3

    13. The Stargate Franchise

    MGM

    "I loved Stargate Universe and it was cancelled, although it was quite good."

    u/PatrickSohno

    "Definitely Stargate Atlantis because that series finale felt extremely rushed."

    14. How I Met Your Mother

    "The actual animated anime-style one! They left off on such a sad note I need it to revive and have a happier ending."

    HBO

    "They need more than a final season."

    u/Lesmate101

    "Shame they stopped at Season Seven. There was just a lot that was unanswered."

    u/TheSexyMicrowave

    "Let’s just have one more try to get it right this time and let George R.R. Martin pick and choose what he wants in the final season, please and thank you."
