‘Witches of East End’ season 3: Could Netflix, WGN America, other network air canceled show?

Witches of East End -Today, the rough news first came in for Lifetime’s “Witches of East End“: There is not going to be another batch of episodes ahead. The show had a devoted following, but unfortunately, a lack of studio ownership plus lower season 2 ratings were the figurative nails in its coffin.

So where is the series going to go from here? Cancellation does not necessarily mean the end; heck, Lifetime previously un-canceled “Drop Dead Diva” at one point and brought it back for more. We suppose the network could be a possible suitor for the show, but we’re going to spend a moment here and look at some other possible homes, as well.

Netflix – The first season of the show was placed on the service, and given the themes and the addictive nature, it could be a good fit. However, “The Killing” and “Arrested Development” may be anomalies rather than the trend for how the show wants to operate moving forward when it comes to reviving shows versus original programming.

WGN America – They already have “Salem,” so why not another show about witches? The only real answer is that they seem to be mostly focused on super-dramatic fare.

We TV – A longshot, since they are not really in the original scripted game right now. However, we wouldn’t rule it out in the right situation.

Bravo – They are starting to get into scripted shows, but they don’t seem to be too keen on the supernatural right now.

FX / FXX – Even though it comes from studio Fox 21, the ratings probably are not there to make the jump.

TNT / USA – The same can be said here.

ION – This, coupled with maybe Netflix or WGN America, may be one of the best options to keep the show going. Unfortunately, there is no slam-dunk choice among the group here, as this network tends to have religious ties. Not sure how they’d feel about a show that uses so much witchcraft.

Maybe good news will surface here somewhere, but for now, the best thing to do is to possibly just look back and the good times the show brought you.
