Someone find a really, really large milk carton, because we have some “missing” TV shows to report on.
In these never-ending COVID times, TV shows more than ever have had a tendency to go “missing” after being renewed. So, as we do now and again, let’s see if TVLine can help hunt down your MIA favorite!
The “Lost & Found” list below covers two and only two kinds of shows, so read these parameters very closely before you “What about…?” us:
♦ Renewed a long time ago, but it has been crickets ever since.
♦ Last aired more than nine months ago, and there is still no official word on cancellation or renewal.
This is not a Renewed/Cancelled scorecard (we have many of those). Far from it. No, this is an annual-ish status report on select shows that have been out of sight but not out of mind for their extremely patient fans — many of which were suggested to us after our recent Twitter alert.
All told, our carefully curated round-up below provides the latest word of more than two dozen “missing” shows, including critical darlings (such as Netflix’s Dead to Me), HBO’s Westworld and what is now Hulu’s The Orville), binge-worthy gems (like Carnival Row and Upload) and basic-cable faves (spoiler alert: we know of one Boomerang that ain’t coming back).
A few broadcast-TV shows even turned up among this year’s “MIA,” including Fox’s lonnnng-cooking MasterChef Junior, CBS’ Blood & Treasure and a forever-spinning Wheel.
Peruse the list below and then hit the comments and tell us which TV series you are (still!) impatiently waiting for. And if your favorite “forgotten” show isn’t featured here, be sure to check out our Broadcast, Cable and Streaming Renewal Scorecards — or email InsideLine@tvline.com to issue a BOLO, and we’ll (maybe) hunt it down for ya!
