The Rainn Wilson, Dwight Schrute spinoff "The Farm". Mad about that because I think it could have been absolutely hilarious, especially if the actress who played Angela who married the Dwight character could have been on there. Could have been like Fawlty Towers (since they ran an inn).

The show was sort of promised and then NBC backed out, me wasnt happy!

"How I Met Your Mother" has had a few attempts at launching a spin-off (companion series) that never happened.

Around Oct. 2013, when HIMYM was ending, it was announced that creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were looking into expanding the franchise with a "female take" on it.

The pilot for "How I Met Your Dad", starring indie film star Greta Gerwig and narrated by Meg Ryan, wasn't picked up by CBS.




Then in December 2016, they tried again with "This Is Us" writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger on "How I Met Your Father". It was to also be from a female's point-of-view and HIMYM creators Bays and Thomas were EPs.

Aptaker and Berger then became co-showrunners on "This Is Us" after it took off and had to put "How I Met Your Father" on hold in March 2017.




Fox chairman Dana Walden then said in August 2017 that they were looking into it again with new writers and that no ideas or concepts from the previous attempts would be carried over.

ďItís one thatís been slowly cooked. If itís the right idea the right execution, weíll take that.Ē

Cool

"Facts Of Life" was going to have "Facts Of Life, The Next Generation" in 1988, but that never materialized. This was alluded to in the series finale episode, with Eastland becoming "co-ed" and Blair becoming headmistress.

Interestingly, this would have been a spinoff of a spinoff.

This could have worked and become more interesting than the original.

A 1990s-set spin-off of "The Goldbergs" was planned, but ultimately not ordered to series. The pilot will air as an episode of "The Goldbergs'" fifth season.



The episode picks up where the Goldberg family leaves off at William Penn Academy in the 1990s as former teacher and now Head of School John Glascott (Tim Meadows) leads a faculty with wildly different views on how to mentor students and recruits his tough-as-nails-sister Lucy (Nia Long) to join his staff and enroll her teenage daughters Felicia and Gigi (Rachel Crow, Summer Parker) as new students.

Lucy is desperate to ensure they avoid the social pitfalls of high school and finds herself torn between Glascottís nurturing and communicative approach to parenting and Coach Mellorís (Bryan Callen) tough-guy belief that physical competition brings out the best in students.

Even Beverly Goldberg (Wendi McLendon-Covey) comes to visit the schoolís staff despite all her kids already having graduated. But she canít help but meddle one last time.

An update to this is that the episode was greatly received and "The Goldbergs" spin-off, "Schooled", was ordered to series shortly after.

ABC was looking into a "The Middle" spin-off focusing on Sue Heck (Eden Sher) shortly after "The Middle" ended. The title was reportedly going to be "Sue Sue in the City" and would feature Sue working at a hotel in Chicago.

ABC put in a pilot production commitment for the series in August 2018 and decided not to go forward with it in November. Other cast members included Brock Ciarlelli, Kimberley Crossman, Finesse Mitchell, Aaron Branch, and Chris Diamantopoulos.

after "I LOVE LUCY"" ended its run CBS wanted to make a spin-off about Fred & Ethel. But Vivian Vance said "No way in HELL would I ever work with Mr. Frawley again!!"

in 2003 they were going to make a spin-off of "QUANTUM LEAP" about Sams daughter searching in time for him. I wish they did; I would have liked to seen it.

"Supernatural" had another attempted spin-off that didn't make it in addition to "Bloodlines".

In July 2017, "Wayward Sisters" was announced that was to feature a group of young women — Claire, Alex, Kaia, and Patience — who were all orphaned due to some supernatural-based tragedy.



"Supernatural" showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer, as well as writers-producers Phil Sgriccia and Robert Berens, were behind the potential spin-off whose backdoor pilot aired during "Supernatural's" 13th Season.

Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, Katherine Ramdeen, Kim Rhodes, Clark Backo, and Yadira Guevara-Prip were to star.





In May 2018, "Supernatural" co-creator Andrew Dabb announced on Twitter that The CW had passed on "Wayward Sisters".

It breaks my heart to say this, but CW has chosen to pass on Wayward Sisters. We love these characters, and have spent almost two years trying to make this show a reality on the network… but there are some fights, sometimes, you can’t win.




The CW chief Mark Pedowitz said shortly after the news:

We had really great material this year. We’re really exited about the five series we did pick up. We are big fans of the characters and the women who played the characters in the series, but we did not feel creatively the show is where we wanted it to be. We felt we had a better shot with Legacies.

“We [the network] are big fans of the Wayward actresses and hope they continue on Supernatural. We did not feel Wayward was where it needed to be to go forward with it this year.
