If you missed it, fan-favorite Starz comedy "Party Down" was recently announced as having a new season in development.


A cult comedy classic, the show became a victim of its stars own success as many of the actors on the show moved on to other bigger projects (GLEE, Parks & Recreation, Silicon Valley, etc.) While many fans feel it was cancelled too soon, seeing it come back gives hope to a lot of people.

We all have that one show we wish got the "one more season" treatment, and if you ask us, we'll tell you what and why.

Reddit user, superkevinguru, wanted to know what show was cut off too soon when they asked:

"What is a TV show that was canceled way too soon?"

We like to laugh, so its always a bummer when our favorite comedy goes off the air. It means we have one less thing to make us giggle and brighten our day than we did before.

"Ants. No, ghosts. No, I don't know."

"Better Off Ted" ~ marS311

Spreading All The Good

"What the hell happened after the cliffhanger in My Name is Earl?" ~ i_simp_4_tedcruz

"Man. We need a final season. I don't care if we find a way to bs the plot so that Earl is still in the middle of that story years later." ~ sketchysketchist

"I remember reading an interview were the creator had intended for earl to never finish his list, that he would come across another person working on their list, and he would see all the good he had spread." ~ Fastman903

There's a lot that goes into cancelling a show. Perhaps the network is moving in a different direction or maybe the show isn't bringing in the ratings they hoped for.

Whatever the reason, it will never satisfy hardcore fans.

This Show Sounds Nuts

"For those that remember it, Terra Nova. It got cancelled by FOX after only one season and was later bought by Netflix, giving hope the show's fans that it would find its footing elsewhere, but Netflix never did anything w/ it. It had some great acting and a compelling plot." ~ Elegant-Narwhal-506

"HOW WAS THERE A 14TH CENTURY SHIP THERE! I NEED TO TO KNOW!" ~ johnotopia

No Power In The 'Verse Can Stop Me

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
