The end of the year is an ideal time to look back at the 12 previous months in celebrating and championing the biggest and the best things that happened. But it’s also as good a time as any to reflect on some of the bad times that happened, too, since there’s an abundance of eggnog and food around. And it’s here we’ll give a final farewell to some of the shows that didn’t get the chance to carry on through to 2016.

These are the 9 most disappointing cancellations of 2015, a year absolutely full of TV series coming to an end. To be clear, these are shows that were straight-up shut down by the networks, and not ones that ended in an amiable way. Torches are still burning over some of these.

Hannibal
For the past six months, Fannibals everywhere have been picturing NBC execs on the receiving end of Hannibal Lecter’s gourmand sensibilities, as the network’s choice to cancel the show in the middle of Season 3 was like a bonesaw to the skull. Season 3 was Hannibal’s most beautiful and boundary-pushing batch of episodes yet, and while they do serve as a fine closer for one of TV’s most artistic and brainy dramas, I can’t imagine there’s anyone in the world outside of NBC that thought this was the best time to send the show off. Creator Bryan Fuller gets some credit for not wanting to rush into putting Season 4 out for a different outlet, but the regret-filled rage will likely never subside.
