Vanished information

Frustrating cliffhangersAs we close out the first ten years of this millennium, it’s amazing how many great TV shows have been cancelled. Big as that list is, there are some that stand out more than others — mostly because they left us hanging. Here’s a list of 10 that deserved at least one more episode to wrap things up.

The 4400 — This show and The Dead Zone ran successfully for many years on USA. The ongoing mysteries of both shows kept viewers coming back for more each week. Unfortunately, the cable channel decided to be done with them in 2007. The shows and their viewers were left with unresolved cliffhangers. Of the the shows, 4400 seems a bit more tragic as it wasn’t on for as many seasons and Dead Zone fans have a freaky Christopher Walken movie.

Vanished: Watch the Last Episode of the Cancelled TV Show

After the immediate success of ABC's Lost and Desperate Housewives, the networks thought that viewers wanted to see more serial dramas. That didn't work out very well. Vanished centers around the sudden disappearance of Sara Collins (Joanne Kelly), a teacher and the wife of Senator Jeffery Collins (John Allen Nelson). Once the FBI gets involved, the secrets of Sara and those around her start to come spewing out and many have possible motives including her husband's political enemies, son Max (John Patrick Amedori), and daughter Marcy (Margarita Levieva). FBI Agents Graham Kelton (Gale Harold) and Lin Mei (Ming-Na) lead the investigation of Sara's disappearance. Before Kelton can tell what he's uncovered, he's murdered and Agent Daniel Lucas (Eddie Cibrian), takes over the case. Other performers in the series include Rebecca Gayheart, Christopher Egan, Esai Morales, Leslie Odom Jr., Penelope Ann Miller, Joseph C. Phillips, Jeff Michael, Christopher Cousins, Josh Hopkins, David Berman, Robert Hoffman, and Robin Pearson Rose. As the freshman drama began to fail, writers on Vanished were told to wrap up the abduction story in 13 episodes. The final installment, "Hot Springs", wasn't shown in primetime and was only released online. Some of the audience found it, most didn't. Because there were so many other continuing storylines in Vanished, few viewers who did see it felt very satisfied. Last season, there was talk of revisiting the case for an episode of Bones but this idea seems to have been derailed by the writers strike.
