TV shows being canceled before they have a chance to wrap things up is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Just over the past few years alone, tons of shows that were killed before their time, including Twin Peaks and Arrested Development, have suddenly returned from the grave

In 2018, even more, canceled shows will be returning. Here’s a look at some of those shows that will make a comeback soon. We’ll be focusing not just on all revivals but specifically on revivals of canceled shows; shows that had a natural ending after a lengthy run, like The Office and Roseanne, don’t count

 

1. Sense8

Sense8 fans were heartbroken in June 2017 when Netflix canceled the show after just two seasons. This was especially tragic because the Wachowskis did not have time to wrap things up in Season 2. So the fans spent month signing petitions and begging Netflix to keep the series going

Due to this outcry, Netflix decided to bring Sense8 back from the dead just a few weeks after ending it. However, this will only be for a two-hour series finale and not a new season. Still, viewers will now get closure, even though they were hoping the show would continue on for additional seasons. The Sense8 finale will be available on Netflix sometime in 2018

 

2. Young Justice

Cartoon Network’s Young Justice follows teenage superheroes like Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Superboy. Though the show always had its devoted fans, the network canceled it in 2013 after just two seasons. Apparently, this was mainly because the toys based on the show weren’t selling as well as Mattel had hoped

But now, based on popular demand, Warner Bros. has announced that they will bring Young Justice back for a third season. Young Justice: Outsiders will air in 2018 and consist of 26 episodes. There were originally discussions of it going to Netflix, but instead, it will be available on DC’s own streaming service

 

3. Roswell

Based on the Roswell High book series, The WB’s Roswell centered around alien-human hybrids living in New Mexico. Those who watched the series generally loved it. But the ratings were always fairly poor, resulting in The WB canceling it at the end of Season 2. UPN picked it up for the third season, but when the ratings continued to disappoint, they canceled it, too.

But now, The CW is working on rebooting Roswell. This is not a continuation of the same story, though, and there’s a twist: in this one, the main character is the daughter of undocumented immigrants. She discovers that her teenage crush is an alien, and she hopes to protect his secret. According to TV Guide, if The CW moves forward with the show, it would air during the 2018 season

 

4. American Idol

Back in 2015, Fox announced that it would be ending American Idol with the 15th season. This was pretty surprising, but even at the time, there were talks that another network might save it from cancelation. Ryan Seacrest even ended the finale by saying goodnight “for now.”

Two years later, ABC announced that it would be reviving American Idol for the 2018 season. Ryan Seacrest will return as host, and the judges will be Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie. Unfortunately, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson have said they have no interest in returning. The new season will air on ABC on March 11
