The 11 Most Devastating TV Cancellations of 2016

Television cancellations come in many forms. Sometimes it's quick and fast: a freshman show that simply couldn't pull the early numbers to survive. Other times we totally see it coming: a long-running teen drama that's way past its prime, whose lead actor basically told an entire red carpet that the show would be ending soon (we're lookin' at you, Vampire Diaries). But no matter how you slice it, the cruel knife of cancellation almost always cuts deep (well, actually, it's more commonly referred to as an "ax"...but you get the idea). So grab the tissues and the closest pint of Ben & Jerry's and let's look back at this year's most upsetting TV casualties.

Really surprised "Faking It" didn't last longer. The showrunner seemed surprised too.

The great thing about this list is we are living in the age of television second chances. I can live in denial that Limitless is cancelled and hope their Netflix numbers are high enough to justify a renewal.

Hi Melissa-LeeM and Suzanne, if you could go to https://getsatisfaction.com/allmedianetwork/topics/slideshow-issue and let us know your browser and OS that would be helpful. We have yet to be able to replicate this problem.

I thought Teen Wolf was just coming to an end really surprised that got cancelled. It's a great show except for the last season which kinda meh. I'm guessing the cast want to start moving to movies
