5. Whiskey Cavalier

When it was canceled: May 11, 2019

Number of seasons aired: 1

What it’s about: Whiskey Cavalier stars Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan as an FBI and CIA agent forced to form a team together. They don’t exactly get along and have very different ways of doing things, but they soon realize that they do balance each other out — especially with the rest of their team.

It’s an over-the-top dramedy. Never once does the show take itself too seriously, but there’s plenty of heart in this show.

Why it should be saved: As a midseason freshman, there hasn’t been much time to really tell a story. However, there was enough time to make it clear that there is plenty of potential for the show. Whiskey Cavalier was one of ABC’s best dramedies and it’s a crying shame that it wasn’t renewed for a second season.

It’s fun and over-the-top, which makes it a change from all the other spy dramas out there. With Scott Foley in the lead, was it really surprising that we’d get something funny? Lauren Cohan offered some seriousness to it, but she still managed to keep the fun in the series.

Then there were the three other main character — Susan, Jai, and Standish. The three never really got that much attention, being just the sidekicks to Foley’s Will Chase and Cohan’s Frankie Trowbridge. We needed more time to see the three step up as crucial elements to the team and even take the lead now and then. Netflix would be the place to do that.
