Enlightened - 5 Canceled TV Shows That Need to Make a ComebackEnlightened

Enlightened is yet another example that critical praise is nothing if a show can’t find its viewers. One of the best shows of the last several years, Enlightened tells the story of Amy (Laura Dern) whose entire personal and professional life implodes after a mental breakdown. The plot follows her attempts to piece herself back together following a philosophical awakening. Created by Mike White, who also acts in the main cast, the series was ultimately nominated for two Emmys and two Golden Globes, with Dern winning Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy in 2012.

Enlightened had a tough time finding an audience from the start, but there were actually some subtle signs that the series was picking up some momentum. This would make sense, given the universal critical acclaim of the second season that led many critics to champion for the show’s renewal when White admitted that ratings would probably shutter the show. While the problems that led to Enlightened’s cancellation probably aren’t going anywhere soon, we can at least imagine where the show was heading after White explained to Vulture his ideas for a third season.
