17 TV Shows That Were Saved From Cancellation by Other Networks

Longmire

Canceled by A&E, picked up by Netflix

This western drama doubled its lifespan by getting picked up by another network! While it was one of the highest-rated original series on A&E, it was canceled after its third season. Reportedly it was canceled because it appealed to an older audience… meaning it didn’t appeal at all to advertisers! Netflix bought the rights to the show, though, and aired it for three more seasons while also streaming all of the previous seasons. They embraced the idea that it would appeal to a certain type of viewer, and since they don’t rely on advertising revenue, it was a non-issue.
