Someone find a really, really large milk carton, because we have some “missing” TV shows to report on!
In these times of “un-renewals” and “disappeared” content, TV shows more than ever have had a tendency to go “missing” after being renewed, or after a finale airs. 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 three and only three kinds of shows, so read these parameters very closely before you “What about…?” us:
♦ Renewed a long time ago, but it has been crickets 🦗 since.
♦ Last aired more than nine months ago, and there is still no official word on cancellation or renewal.
♦ Has been on midseason “hiatus” for… a while.
This is not a Renewed/Cancelled scorecard (we have many of those). Far from it. No, this is a recurring 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.
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!

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT (HBO Max)
Last aired: Season 2 of the darkly comedic thriller was released May 26, 2022.
Current status: “We did two — we should probably be done,” Emmy-nominated star and EP Kaley Cuoco told People.com last May. “I think I’ve been outnumbered with that thought; there’s definitely interest in doing a third season. I think for me, at this moment, the plane has landed.” And if Flight Attendant were to return for Season 3, Cuoco — who has multiple other projects (and her first child) in the hopper — said it likely would be in the distant future: “Some of my favorite shows on TV take some time to come back, and then I get very excited about a new season.”
An HBO Max source told TVLine that “no official decision” has been made about a third season.

THE POLITICIAN (Netflix)
Last aired: Season 2 of the Ben Platt-led dramedy released all seven episodes back on June 19, 2020.
Current status: Season 3 has not officially been ordered — but there is no real rush, either. As show boss Ryan Murphy once explained to Collider, “Where Season 2 ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race. That would obviously be a presidential race, right? That’s always what we had designed, and I think that’s what our plan is…. Ben is young, so I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a little bit.”
THE PREMISE (Hulu)
Last aired: Season 1 of the B.J. Novak-hosted anthology — which tackled hard-hitting issues such as gun control, identity, social justice, sex, capitalism, revenge, love, fame and social media — streamed via (what was then known as) “FX on Hulu” from Sept. 16 to Oct. 7, 2021.

Last aired Stateside: NBC aired the Canadian (CTV) medical drama’s Season 2 finale on July 16, 2022.
