With so many great series on TV these days, it can be hard for new comedies and dramas to stand out. Case in point? Several freshman shows have recently been canceled after failing to resonate with audiences in their debut seasons. Below, check out 10 new TV shows that just got axed.
1. Good Girls Revolt
Amazon made the surprising move to ax this freshman period drama after only one season. The abrupt cancellation came as a shock to many, as the show had earned solid reviews (scoring a 70% on Rotten Tomatoes) in its debut and ranked as one of Amazon’s biggest series among female viewers. Creator Dana Calvo later suggested that Amazon Studios head Roy Price didn’t care for the show, ultimately leading to its cancellation.
Whatever the reason, the drama won’t be getting a second chance for more episodes. Producer Sony Pictures Television reportedly shopped it around to other networks, but it wasn’t picked up. Calvo confirmed that Good Girls Revolt was officially done in January 2017.
