We all have our favourite TV shows and we wish they would go on forever. Sometimes, a spin-off is the best way to see your favorite character more, but very often those series become a disappointment. While there are some great examples, this list is not the case. Let’s see which shows tried their best but still got it all wrong.
Joey. Spin-off from: Friends
Most people probably didn’t even know this show existed. While a group of friends had a great combination of different characters, Joey on his own wasn’t that funny. Sandwiches and pretty women were Joey’s main features and it wasn’t enough for a full show. Halfway through season two, the show was cancelled and the final episodes were not even shown in the US.
The Carrie Diaries. Spin-off from: Sex and the City
The prequel to Sex and the City showing Carrie’s early years sounds like a great idea. Guess what, Sarah Jessica Parker is not in it. While it is based on the book with the same name, it didn’t have the same feel as the original show and was cancelled after 2 seasons.
Models Inc. Spin-off from: Melrose Place
Melrose Place was a huge hit in the 90’s and producers had high expectations for Models Inc. It featured the mother of Amanda Woodward who ran a modeling agency. While this idea sounded great, within the first 5 months it was clear that the show didn’t deliver. Poor acting and bad writing led to show closure one year later.
Baywatch Nights. Spin-off from: Baywatch
Beach, hot lifeguards and drama sound like a good base for a successful show but Baywatch Nights changed the format to a detective investigation story and turned to be a completely different show. Audiences tried to follow weird storylines but thankfully season 3 didn’t happen.
