So many beloved long-running and new shows got the axe this may that we at TVLine are still in mourning. On the other hand, we’re also looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the stars of our cancelled faves.
With a bevy of talented actors now free agents, we’ve cooked up new roles for familiar faces from The Grinder, Nashville, Galavant, Hannibal and other defunct series. (Cable shows weren’t safe from cancellation, either, so we’ve got you covered, fans of Faking It, Togetherness and Damien.)
Casting directors and producers, take note, because we’ve found the perfect thesps to play Arrow‘s upcoming baddie, SVU‘s replacement for Sgt. Dodds, and more. We’ve even got creative character descriptions to help shake things up on Supergirl, Grey’s Anatomy and Empire.
And while TVLine claims to have no special psychic powers, don’t be surprised if a few of our ideas become reality. After all, our Alana De La Garza/Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders pitch last year came true! Plus, our Big Bang Theory/Judd Hirsch suggestion was almost on the money, and Ken Marino did, indeed, visit iZombie, albeit in a different role.
Flip through the gallery (or right here) to see our picks, then hit the comments to share the beloved faces you want back on TV ASAP.
