10 Freeform TV Series That Were Canceled After Only 10 Episodes
Freeform, formerly known as ABC Family, has had many successful TV shows on its roster. Pretty Little Liars and The Secret Life of the American Teenager are a couple of the long-running series to air on the young adult network. But, for every great show, there’s a less successful one in its shadow.
Television series get canceled for a number of reasons: Low ratings can be brought in by a poor cast, sub-par plot, bad time slot, or something else all together; the variables are endless. But while some shows get two or three seasons before they get the ax, there are others that perform so terribly that they’re canceled almost right after they air. Take a look to see some Freeform shows that were canceled after just ten episodes:
With the astounding success of Pretty Little Liars, everyone assumed that its spinoff, Ravenswood, would be a major hit. The show began when Caleb followed Hanna (characters from Pretty Little Liars) to a town called Ravenswood where she was following up on a lead surrounding Alison and 'A.' While there, Caleb finds a gravestone with his name on it, and Hanna is rescued by a girl named Miranda, after she gets trapped in a spooky house. Hanna insists that Caleb stay behind in Ravenswood to help Miranda learn about her family. But, in helping Miranda, Caleb uncovers an eerie town curse. In just 10 short episodes, Miranda becomes a ghost, a murder is solved and family secrets are revealed. But, the supernatural spinoff didn't do enough to attract all of PLL's viewers and was canceled after one 10-episode season.
