13 Shows That Ended on a Sour Note

at .

When a show we love isn't granted a life long enough to get a proper ending, or a movie adaptation at a later date to wrap things up, we're left forever wondering about our favorite characters.

It just leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

These shows either ended on a cliffhanger or have stuck with us so long we may never get over their departure.

What other shows do you think deserved to go out in style?

1. Hannibal

Hannibal
Umm...Will Graham and Hannibal ACTUALLY WENT OVER A CLIFF! How's that for a cliffhanger ending? Talk about unfair. There was definitely more to tell there, but low ratings just didn't allow for their story to continue.

2. Carnivale

Carnivale
Carnivale didn't get word of their cancellation until the show had finished production. That's the worst case scenario. Ben was left wounded and unconscious in Management's trailer. Um. Whoops? Angry fans will never get the ending to story of the carnival and the preacher.

3. Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies
Pushing Daisies was canceled on a massive cliffhanger. Ned and Chuck are on her aunt's doorstep, having just revealed that she's still alive to her mother and her aunt. How did they react? What's next? Well, write your own ending for that. Poor Bryan Fuller.

4. Southland

Southland
After five brilliant seasons, it all comes down to Ben possibly being a dirty cop and Cooper getting shot in his own ally by fellow cops who don't know who he is. He's left to bleed as the camera pans out and we never know his fate. Although we can guess. Just like Southland, he was at the end of his run.

5. The Glades

The Glades
Much like Southland, this one ended on a cliffhanger. Jim shot in the kitchen on his wedding day to Callie. We'll never know how distraught she was or whether he survived. Well, he didn't. The network killed him and Callie both!

6. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Ending on a time jump, in which John Connor went forward in time and discovered nobody knew who he was (so much for everything his mother foretold), but his father and uncle were still alive. Who wouldn't want to watch what happened next?! Would have been better than the last Terminator movie!
