Game of Thrones, Broad City and Other Shows We Lost in 2019

RIP to Game of Thrones, Jane the Virgin, The Big Bang Theory, and more

Mekeisha Madden Toby
Your the Worst, Shows We Lost in 2019
1 of 40 Byron Cohen/FXX

You're the Worst, 2014-2019

FX's You're the Worst presented an unflinching look at love and clinical depression through Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen's (Aya Cash) romantic relationship and eventual marriage for five seasons.

2 of 40 HBO

Veep, 2012-2019

HBO's Veep mirrored the bizarre world of Washington D.C. politics so well for seven seasons that it was sometimes too close to reality to bear. But Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) was leaps and bounds above our world because we haven't had a woman president or vice president yet.

3 of 40 ABC

The Fix, 2019-2019

The Fix couldn't be, well, fixed. Despite strong performances from stars Robin Tunney and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, the ABC drama never found its footing.

4 of 40 Larry D. Horricks/ABC

Whiskey Cavalier, 2019-2019

Whiskey Cavalier is proof that you need more going on to make a show watchable than simply adding Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan. ABC pulled the plug after the first and only season.

5 of 40 Netflix

The Punisher, 2017-2019

Marvel's The Punisher took down bad guys and saved the day in bloody ways. But when Netflix cleaned its coffers of superhero shows, this Jon Bernthal-led drama had to go after two seasons.

6 of 40 Jessica Miglio/Amazon

The Tick, 2017-2019

The Tick, Amazon's live-action version of Ben Edlund's comic book classic, fared well critically for two seasons. But TV's latest incarnation of the buggy superhero -- previously there was an animated take (1994) and another live-action version with Patrick Warburton (2001) -- didn't have enough buzz to get renewed for a third season.

7 of 40 Tony Rivetti/ABC

The Kids are Alright, 2018-2019

ABC's The Kids Are Alright was inspired by Tim Doyle's life but failed to inspire viewers to stick around.

8 of 40 Steve Dietl/Fox

The Passage, 2019-2019

Fox's The Passageexcited fans with its vampire and post-apocalyptic themes inspired by author Justin Cronin's book of the same name. But unfortunately it took too long to get to where it needed to be as a show despite the infectious chemistry between Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Saniyya Sidney.

9 of 40 Christos Kalohoridis/USA Network

Suits, 2011-2019

For nine seasons, USA's Suits brought fans lawyers like Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and eventual attorney Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who became legit in Season 6. Best of all, Suits showed Prince Harry who Meghan Markle was. But you can call her Duchess of Sussex.

10 of 40 Showtime

The Affair, 2014-2019

After five seasons of being a horrible human being on Showtime's The Affair, Noah (Dominic West) walked away unscathed in the series finale. Not cool, man. Not cool.

11 of 40 Wilford Harewood/Fox

Star, 2016-2019

Fox's Star is a testament that the music business is tough and making a show about it that appeals to a lot of people is even tougher.

12 of 40 HBO

Game of Thrones, 2011-2019

The eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones angered fans. But even they have to admit there was never a show like it on TV before and there will never be one like it again.

13 of 40 ABC

Speechless, 2016-2019

Speechless gave viewers a glimpse into the life of JJ (Micah Fowler), a teen with cerebral palsy and his goofy but loving family.

14 of 40 Eric McCandless/ABC

Splitting Up together, Shows We Lost in 2019

ABC's Splitting Up Together gave fans of The Officea chance to hang out with Jenna Fischer again if only for a couple seasons.

15 of 40 Ray Mickshaw/FOX

Rel, Shows We Lost in 2019

Rel, which only lasted one season on Fox, failed to tap into comedian Lil Rel Howery's raw talent.

16 of 40 Fox

Proven Innocent, Shows We Lost in 2019

Proven Innocent had a lot going for it, including a cast made up of Rachelle Lefevre, Russell Hornsby and Kelsey Grammer. But the ratings were just too low for Fox to give the courtroom drama a second chance.

17 of 40 Cliff Lipson/CBS

Life in Pieces, Shows We Lost in 2019

An abbreviated Season 4 was a sign the end of CBS' Life In Pieces was nigh.

18 of 40 JoJo Whilden / Netflix

Orange Is the New Black, 2013-2019

Orange Is the New Black ended its seven-season run with Piper (Taylor Schilling) choosing Alex (Laura Prepon), which is a much better fate than Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) met in the finale.

19 of 40 Gregg Gayne/The CW

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, 2015-2019

For four seasons of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, fans journeyed through Rebecca's (Rachel Bloom) highs and lows in love. But when the musical comedy came to an end on The CW, Rebecca learned that self-love is the most important kind of love there is.

20 of 40 USA

Mr. Robot, 2015-2019

Mr. Robot never quite captured our imaginations the way the series did in Season 1. But star Rami Malek has an Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe now so he'll be fine when the show's fourth and final season comes to an end Dec. 22 on USA.

21 of 40 CBS

Murphy Brown, 2018-2019

Murphy Brown returned to CBS after a 20-year hiatus but failed to catch up to modern political humor.

22 of 40 John Medland/Freeform

Shadow Hunters, 2017-2019

Shadowhunters proved that it isn't as easy hunting demons as it is to develop a passionate fan base. The Freeform fantasy drama, which is based on author Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments book series, hit a rough patch in Season 2 when showrunner Ed Decter left the show. The show lasted three seasons.

23 of 40 Richard Foreman, Jr./The CW

Jane The Virgin, 2014-2019

Everyone's favorite CW telenovela, Jane The Virgin, came to an end after five mostly fantastic seasons. And best of all, Jane (Gina Rodriguez) ended up with Rafael (Justin Baldoni) in the end.

24 of 40 Netflix

Jessica Jones, 2015-2019

It seemed like Marvel's Jessica Jones would be the one superhero series Netflix would keep after canceling Luke Cage, Daredevil, and the like. But nope.

25 of 40 Evans Vestal Ward/NBC

I Feel Bad, 2018-2019

Sarayu Blue's I Feel Bad might've attracted a larger audience if NBC had given the comedy more time or at least more than one season.

26 of 40 Diyah Pera/The CW

iZombie, 2015-2019

iZombie fans probably would've happily watched Olivia (Rose McIver) eat brains and solve mysteries forever. But five seasons is enough.

27 of 40 Barbara Nitke/Netflix

Friends from College, 2017-2019

Sure, Season 1 of Friends from College was arguably funnier than Season 2. But it felt like there needed to be at least one more season of this subversive Netflix comedy starring Keegan Michael-Key and Cobie Smulders.

28 of 40 Cliff Lipson/CBS

Happy Together, 2018-2019

Happy Together wasn't all bad. Casting stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West worked. But the short-lived CBS sitcom's premise, about an everyday couple living with a pop star, didn't work.

29 of 40 ABC

For the People, 2018-2019

ABC's For the Peoplelasted two seasons! Not bad for a just OK legal drama.

30 of 40 Claire Folger/Showtime

SMILF, 2017-2019

Star and creator Frankie Shaw's honest and irreverent comedy style wasn't enough to save Showtime's SMILF from the chopping block. The show lasted two seasons and also starred Rosie O'Donnell and Miguel Gomez.

31 of 40 Ryan Green/FOX

The Gifted, 2017-2019

The Gifted lasted two seasons and is just the latest on Fox's long list of failed sci-fi dramas.

32 of 40 Sonja Flemming/CBS

Fam, 2019-2019

The biggest problem with CBS' short-lived comedy Fam, which starred and wasted Nina Dobrev, is that hardly anyone watched it.

33 of 40 Starz

Counterpart, 2017-2019

The Season 2 finale of Counterpart felt like a series finale because Starz ultimately decided that it was.

34 of 40 Netflix

Designated Survivor, 2016-2019

Netflix picked up Designated Survivor after ABC canceled it in Season 2. But ratings must've been lackluster because the streamer killed the political drama soon after its Season 3 premiere.

35 of 40 Paul Thompson/Amazon

Catastrophe, 2015-2019

Amazon's Catastrophe was arguably one of TV's most hilarious and underrated shows until its Season 4 cancellation. No other couple reveled in chaos like Sharon (Sharon Horgan) and Rob (Rob Delaney).

36 of 40 Michael Yarish/WARNER BROS.

The Big Bang Theory, 2007-2019

The Big Bang Theory's two-part series finale jerked all the tears and wrapped up Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and the gang's 12-season-long storylines so wonderfully. When Sheldon thanked his friends, who are like his second family, in his Nobel Prize speech it felt like he was thanking fans too.

37 of 40 Mike Yarish/FOX

Lethal Weapon, 2016-2019

Lethal Weapon suffered a lot of bad publicity in Season 2 because its stars Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford had trouble getting along. Fox fired Crawford, who also reportedly has issues with the crew, and brought on Seann William Scott for Season 3, which was supposed to save the series. But then Wayans quit.

38 of 40 Patrick McElhenney/FOX

Cool Kids, 2018-2019

When Fox canceled The Cool Kids in Season 1, the cast was reportedly the last to know. And star Vicki Lawrence is still smarting about that.

39 of 40 FX

Baskets, 2016-2019

Baskets allowed star Zach Galifianakis to unnerve viewers as Chip Baskets, an aspiring clown, and his twin brother, Dale, for four seasons on FX. Louie Anderson costarred as their mom and won an Emmy for it.

40 of 40 Comedy Central

Broad City, 2014-2019

Broad City turned Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer into stars and made Comedy Central a funnier network for five seasons. In the finale, Abbi and Ilana hung out one last time before Abbi moved from New York to Colorado.
