Countdown to The Emmys: Which Canceled TV Series Would You Bring Back?

In anticipation of the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which air September 22 at 8 p.m. ET, we are launching a series of polls and other TV-related challenges. Return each week for a new Countdown to the Emmys event!

Your first mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell us which canceled TV you’d bring back if you could.

Earlier today, we asked you to name your favorite prematurely canceled TV show, and we received a ton of responses.

We took some of your more popular suggestions, and now we want to know: which of these canceled TV series would you bring back if you could? Vote below! You may vote once per hour.

If your favorite canceled TV show is not included in the poll below, fret not! Simply tell us which show you’d bring back by leaving a comment!
