17 TV Shows That Were Saved From Cancellation by Other Networks

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Canceled by The WB, picked up by The UPN

Before they merged into The CW, The WB and The UPN were warring networks. Both were trying to appeal to a young, hip audience. When The WB refused to give salary increases to the cast and crew of Buffy the Vampire Slayer after the fifth season, The UPN was right there pick the show up. The WB effectively let the show go, not feeling they should put more time and money into it. If it had not been picked up by UPN, we never would have gotten the last two seasons and some of the best episodes of the series! The new network didn’t stop fans from finding the show, luckily, and the season six premiere pulled in massive ratings due to that massive season five cliffhanger!
