62 Shows That Got Canceled Way Too Fucking Soon


Network: PBS

Seasons: Two

Why it should still be around: “It was one of the few non-British period pieces on the channel and it was crazy inclusive. The black actors weren’t just slaves. There were POC characters born free, freed by union soldiers, contrabands, slaves who escaped to freedom, and even freed slaves that stayed with the families they served. And they were brave; committed to helping the union, or teaching other freed people skills, or with medical knowledge that helped save the lives of soldiers.

And the white characters weren’t all villains or in line with the white savior trope. Some believed in an end to slavery, some just believed in preserving the Union while thinking little of the African race, Confederate sympathizers and spies, and so on.

It had romance, intrigue, and tragedy. I honestly can’t do it justice. It’s so upsetting it was canceled.” —karaf44faa0b75
