With every fall comes the rush of new television, all of which has us scrambling to anticipate what the new big hits will be. But what about the shows which have been around for a few seasons, which may have delighted audiences initially but faded from popular attention in subsequent years?
Sure, just getting a second season is an accomplishment these days, but shows like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “You’re the Worst” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” still struggle in the ratings, and despite their critical acclaim we worry that this season could be their last.
Thus, this week IndieWire’s Very Good TV Podcast takes a hard look at several shows that we’d love to see go on — despite knowing that we may be asking the impossible.
