There are many shows that don’t really get to tell their full stories and their cancellation leaves many fans frustrated and disappointed. The series finale can show us a lot of things like getting into new territories and telling stories in a new way, or a character’s fate that’s hanging in balance. While some shows get a new life and they get to explore their stories further like Lucifer and Manifest, we are here to talk about shows that were canceled by Prime Video only after their first season.
