17 TV Shows That Were Saved From Cancellation by Other Networks
Canceled by Fox, picked up by Comedy Central
Right from the get-go, Fox didn’t have a ton of confidence in Futurama. They threw it all over the schedule, aired it whenever they felt like it, and regularly pushed the show off for sports games and specials. Midway through the fourth season, the network stopped ordering episodes and let the show’s production lapse. The show landed in syndication and, at that point, Comedy Central discussed the idea of producing more episodes, which led to four direct-to-DVD films, the last of which constituted as a series finale. But eventually, Comedy Central ended up producing all-new episodes of the show, where it aired for two more seasons. Although it was eventually canceled at Comedy Central as well, fans and the cast alike always hope for another revival!
