Over the years, many great shows were stuck with the one-season treatment. Luckily, these five series can be viewed at any time thanks to various streaming services.

Firefly: Sci-Fi Cult Classic

Firefly is the only show on this list to evolve into a franchise after its cancellation. The sci-fi show, which originally aired on Fox, introduced the world to Homeland star Morena Baccarin.

Trophy Wife: Cute Family Sitcom
