17 TV Shows That Were Saved From Cancellation by Other Networks
Canceled by ABC, picked up by Showtime
Twin Peaks is surely one of the weirdest TV shows of all time. And perhaps that was why the ratings declined as much as they did in the show’s season. After the mystery of “who killed Laura Palmer?” was finished, there just wasn’t much to the series to be interested in other than the continuous weird things happening. So, in 1991, it was canceled. Fast-forward to 2017 and Twin Peaks was back, baby! This time as a limited-series run, and not on ABC: on Showtime. It was a move to a network more suited to the bizarre and fascinating things happening on the show! It also gave fans some sense of closure, and a little more time in this interesting little world.
