Canceled shows Netflix should save
Honestly, it makes sense, too. Netflix has saved some incredible shows and give them new life after they were canceled, including Lucifer, Longmire, and more. Netflix is also credited with boosting ratings and making sure they get renewed for new seasons, including Breaking Bad, Riverdale, and more.
The Netflix effect is real. When shows land on the streaming service, potentially millions of fans are discovering the show for the first time. It’s a great way to get more eyes on a TV show or movie.
So, we put together a list of canceled shows Netflix should save. Some of these picks aren’t very likely, but they could benefit by being seen by Netflix viewers around the world.
Let’s get the list started with an action broadcast series, MacGyver!
Why was MacGyver canceled?
MacGyver is one of the most recognizable names in TV. The reboot of the popular TV series from the 1980s premiered in 2016 on CBS.
So far, four full seasons have aired on the network, and a fifth season is nearly over. Unfortunately, the series will not be returning for season 6. It was canceled during the fifth season. The season and series finale will air on April 30, 2021.
Unfortunately, Netflix is unlikely to save MacGyver, but there’s no doubt that Netflix would be able to share this series with a bigger platform and possibly save the show.
I don’t think it’s going to happen, but we have to imagine that Netflix would have looked into the numbers and how much it would cost and benefit the streaming service.

Is Bless the Harts canceled?
Bless the Harts was canceled on FOX after two seasons. The news was announced in April 2021.
Bless the Harts premiered on FOX in September 2019, and unfortunately, viewership has just struggled for the most part, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. Low ratings are obviously the reason this show is getting canceled, not the quality of the program.
The series was created by Emily Spivey. It has an incredible voice cast with Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz, Kumail Nanjiani, and Fortune Feimster.
Netflix has not picked up the series yet, but of all the shows on the list, the streaming network would likely save this show. Netflix is investing in a lot of animated shows, and a show like this just needs a bigger platform.
It’s still rather unlikely that an acquisition would happen, but I’d like to see what Netflix could do with a show like this. With so many big names involved, I think it’d be a hit like Big Mouth, F is for Family, and the other popular animated shows on Netflix.

Why was Kim’s Convenience canceled?
Kim’s Convenience is so good! The first four seasons of the series are available to stream on Netflix right now.
The series, which airs on CBC in Canada, premiered in 2016. Last year, the series was renewed for multiple seasons following season 4. Unfortunately, it was announced earlier this year that the series would actually be ending after season 5 when the show’s co-creators had left the show. They moved on to other projects, according to a statement by the
I know it’s unfortunate when the creators leave a show, but it’s not like there’s no one else to could run the show and the writers’ room, right? So many other shows have moved on after the original creative team left for other projects. I was hoping that Kim’s Convenience would do something like that.
Honestly, it’s not likely that Kim’s Convenience will be saved by Netflix, but Netflix has deep pockets, has always been looking for hits, and has shown how to bring a show back from the dead. Perhaps, Netflix could reunite the cast and creative for a sixth season at a later date? I hope something like that happens.
This show is so, so, so good. You should definitely watch it on Netflix if you haven’t yet.

Why was Mom canceled?
Mom is one of the most popular sitcoms of the last decade. The series premiered on CBS way back in 2013. It’s currently nearing the end of its final season on CBS.
Mom was one of the most surprising cancellations when it was announced back in February 2021. Anna Faris and Allison Janney star in the series, which focuses on their daughter-mother relationship.
Faris left the series after season 7, so I guess it’s not all that surprising that the show is coming to an end. But, ratings are still quite good! And, Janney is a major star and force that pulls fans to this series.
I don’t think there’s a very good chance that Netflix would save this show, but the network should if they could. Netflix has, in my opinion, a sub-par lineup of multi-cam sitcoms. Bringing in a major hit like Mom would instantly change that.
We’ve seen shows adapt and thrive after a main character leaves, and there’s a chance Mom could do that well in the future.
Unfortuantely, it doesn’t look like fans will ever get the chance to see that. Mom’s series finale is scheduled to air on May 13, 2021.
You can stream Mom on Paramount Plus, which was previously known as CBS All Access.Next: The Baker and the Beauty
Will The Baker and the Beauty be renewed for season 2?
The Baker and the Beauty is one of the most popular shows on Netflix right now. The first season was added to Netflix on April 13, 2021, exactly one year after the series premiered on ABC.
Unfortunately, ABC canceled the series in 2020. While fans joined the cast and crew trying to save the series, no network has picked up the series for a second season yet. In other words, there’s no The Baker and the Beauty season 2 in the works yet.
There’s a chance, I guess, that Netflix could save The Baker and the Beauty. The series is wildly popular right now, and that’s exactly what Netflix would need to see if the network was going to save the series.
I think it’s quite a long shot at this point for any network to save The Baker and the Beauty. These things don’t happen all that often, and when they do, they happen pretty quickly. For instance, FOX canceled Lucifer, and Netflix stepped in and saved the show like a month later. That’s probably the most successful example of Netflix saving a show after it was canceled.
More likely than not, Netflix has already looked at the show’s numbers and made a decision about whether they would save the show or not. We don’t know that for a fact, but we have to assume that’s the case. Netflix is always looking for that next project, so it only makes sense they would be looking at popular shows.
We’ll let you know if Netflix is going to save The Baker and the Beauty when we find out more information.Next: Best Netflix shows coming in 2021
