10 TV Shows That Just Got Cancelled

3. Lucky Hank

The Flight Attendant

After the success of Better Call Saul and his ever-increasing public popularity, it sure felt like Bob Odenkirk's return to the small screen was destined to a lasting hit. Unfortunately, Lucky Hank was the victim of AMC budget cuts, cancelled after just one painfully short season.

A brilliant comedy-drama in which Odenkirk stars as a jaded writer and college professor in the midst of a volatile midlife crisis, Lucky Hank was grounded by a staggering cast - not just Odenkirk but Kyle MacLachlan and Mireille Enos - and touching humanity, and could have comfortably run for many more years to come. 

Alas, it wasn't fated. Amongst a sea of TV cancellations that swept through the industry in the fall of 2023, Lucky Hank also found itself on the chopping block, robbing audiences of another Odenkirk masterclass impossible not to love.
