The lifespan of the television show is dwindling. The rise of original programming from streaming services has shifted the TV landscape, making room for more shows with fewer episodes per season, and larger content-driven platforms like Netflix can quickly move on to the next thing before we, the TV-loving public, are truly ready.
Take Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which was only approaching the heights of its narrative when Netflix decided the teen witch drama could wrap it up in four, thanks. The pandemic has affected production dates worldwide, too, leading more shows to early ends: After a production delay for GLOW, for example, Netflix called it quits on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling dramedy altogether. Television shows like Superstore and Claws will be also soon be gone before their time, leaving behind stellar seasons we can, at least, watch on repeat. Here are some of the recent shows ending or canceled in 2020, so you can make sure to say a proper goodbye.
