in 2003 there was going to be a spin-off of QUANTUM LEAP about Sams daughter searching through time for Sam; but it never materialized.

NBC recently passed on a Bo & Cheyenne-centered spin-off of "Superstore".

It would have featured Nichole Sakura and Johnny Pemberton reprising their "Superstore" roles where they balance their big dreams with the harsh realities of being a blue-collar family in America.



The CW also did not pick up its female-lead "Arrow" spin-off "Green Arrow and the Canaries". The backdoor pilot aired during "Arrow" Season 8, Ep. #9.

It would have featured Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy, and Juliana Harkavy.

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.

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.”

Hulu has ordered "How I Met Your Father" to series with Hilary Duff set to star.

"Law & Order: Hate Crimes" was first announced in Sept. 2018 on NBC. It was supposed to spin-off from "SVU" where it would focus on NYC's Hate Crimes Task Force.

"SVU" showrunner Warren Leight said in June 2020 that maybe Peacock would be better for it due to "language concerns".

"Law & Order: Organized Crime" was launched, and now the original series is coming back, but "Hate Crimes" seems to be stalled.

Law and Order: For the Defense was pulled from the schedule. But Dick Wolf promises his next one won't be about the law.

Taraji P. Henson was supposed to star in a Cookie spin-off after "Empire" ended.

The CW has pulled the plug on "The 100" prequel series that had been in development for two years.

Set 97 years before the events of the original series, the prequel starts with the end of the world — a nuclear apocalypse that wipes out most of Earth’s human population — and follows a band of survivors on the ground as they learn to cope in a dangerous world while fighting to create a new and better society from the ashes of what came before.

A spin-off of "Here's Lucy" starring Lucie Arnaz never happened.

Desi Arnaz, Jr. left the show at the end of Season 3 in order to pursue a film career while Lucie Arnaz stayed on show becoming the main comic foil of Lucille Ball and Gale Gordon. The backdoor pilot aired as the Season 4 finale with Kim Carter moving into her own apartment. Susan Tolsky played one of the other residents and Alan Oppenheimer played the apartment building's landlord.



Lucille Ball's original plan was to have Vivian Vance become her new comic foil while her daughter had her own show. Lucie Arnaz' pilot wasn't picked up and Vivian Vance had health issues preventing her from becoming a series regular.

Lucie Arnaz then stayed on "Here's Lucy" until it ended.
