Who wouldn't be GLUED to another season of Firefly??

The science fiction genre is arguably the richest of them all. Filled with compelling stories, unique characters and innovative concepts that think outside of every box imaginable, sci-fi has been convincingly pushing the boundaries of believability for decades.

That's particularly true when it comes to television as we've seen an endless supply of science fiction thrillers, horrors and even family dramas make their way onto our screens. And, they're welcome additions because, in all honesty, you can never have too much of it.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and over the years we've bid farewell to a number of sci-fi greats. Whether it was a long-running staple of our TV schedules bowing out or an abrupt cancellation that took our faves from us, the fact of the matter is you just weren't ready to let go of it.

On that note, let's delve into the TV annals and take a look at some of these sci-fi gems that we'd love to see return to our screens for a well-deserved revival. From game-changing genre pieces to an underrated superhero in the making, our televisions are in need of some comebacks...

10. Daybreak

Arrow John Constantine

Daybreak was an odd creature that managed to stand out in a crowded landscape of post-apocalyptic zombie dramas. That probably had something to do with the fact that it wasn't a drama, but a surprisingly clever comedy built upon a solid narrative and some of the wittiest dialogue on TV last year.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name, it was an ambitious production that still felt rather personal, and that's because the characters were so well-crafted that you were drawn into their dramatic arcs in spite of the show's exaggerated tone.

Its cancellation was disappointing considering that Netflix is known for its unique selection of programming and for giving second chances to those that show potential but haven't quite amassed the fanbase. And yet Daybreak had amassed quite the passionate fanbase - who would no doubt adore the idea of a sophomore follow-up to Josh's apocalypse adventure.

The show thrived on subverting our expectations and its concluding moments did just that, turning the narrative we'd spent all season following completely on its head. Oh to think what a second season could have looked like.
