Enlisted: Cancelled FOX TV Show Saved by Yahoo Next?

Enlisted TV show last episode ratingsYahoo recently revived cancelled sitcom Community for a sixth season and now the online service is reportedly interested in saving Enlisted as well.

Enlisted follows three brothers who find themselves all stationed at the same US Army base in Florida as part of a troup of misfits. The sitcom’s cast includes Stults, Chris Lowell, Parker Young, Keith David, and Angelique Cabral.

Deadline reports that talks are underway with 20th Century Fox TV for a second season of the military sitcom. The new episodes would be made available via Yahoo’s streaming service, Yahoo Screen.

Sources caution that the conversations are in the very early stages and it’s unclear if anything will come of them.

20th Century Fox TV has experience in reviving cancelled shows for a digital platform, having revived Arrested Development for Netflix.

What do you think? Would you watch a second season of Enlisted online? Would you buy them on DVD?

    My husband is military and we loved enlisted! We watched every weekend and we were so sad to hear it had been canceled. We would watch this show on any network please save enlisted!

    Enlisted was a great show. It sold as a very good sitcom that nearly every week disarmed you yet surprised you with a real life situation that didn’t seem hoky or contrived. It had potential to become this generation’s MASH. It’s worth watching in any format.

    Scarlet is right however as with a lot of the good shows that were cancelled this season Enlisted was given all of 6 episodes before that decision was made. They never even gave it a chance to find an audience.

    Fox never gave enlisted a chance sometimes it takes more then one season to shine everyone deserves a chance give enlisted another season and they will prove what they got and get higher ratings

    Very well said, Scarlett!

    I really hope this happens because Enlisted was an amazing show that I looked forward to every week. It made me laugh and just made me feel good. It needs a second season, of any number of episodes and since Fox doesn’t feel it is worthy, bless you Yahoo Next for realizing how great this show is.

    YES I would watch Enlisted on any network or format and I’ve already signed up to be notified when the DVDs become available. I thought the show (the cast, the crew, and certainly the fans) got a raw deal from Fox. What were they thinking would happen when they scheduled it for Friday nights? That night typically has lower expectations anyway, so what was the problem? Anyway, the show was wonderfully written, funny, charming, and the chemistry between the “brothers” was exceptional. Geoff Stults et al deserved better.
