One Season Wonders You Can Watch On Stan

They are the shows that had us hooked, then abruptly ended after one lonely season. And now you can watch them anytime, anywhere on Stan.

Here's 10 of the best one season wonders, the stories that ended all too soon.


1. Forever

A 200 year old man (with a delightful British accent) works in the New York City Morgue trying to find a key to unlock the curse of his immortality. Probably deserved more than the 1 season it got and fans still live in hope #SaveForever


2. Constantine

Based on the excellent DC Comics series, Constantine is a demon hunter, exorcist and master of the dark arts —- with an attitude and charm that’s hard to pass up.


3. Freaks and Geeks

Based in a more realistic TV high school than most, Freaks and Geeks launched the careers of some of the biggest names in comedy today. Jason Segal, James Franco and Seth Rogen to name a few. We’re still hoping for a reunion -– Seth Rogen can still play a high schooler right?


4. A to Z

Think 500 days of Summer meets How I Met Your Mother, plus it’s got Cristin Miloti (the eventual mother from HIMYM). Tragically cut short, the series is more like A to M, but the writers fit a fair amount of charm into the resulting 13 episodes.


5. Selfie

My Fair Lady for millenials. Karen Gillan sheds her Dr Who companion roots to turn into a vacuous sales executive obsessed with social media and herself. Fans loved it, critics were pleasantly surprised even despite the average show title (Selfie, really guys?)


6. Betas

Suffered from being a little too similar to HBO’s Silicon Valley but the 1 season of this Amazon Original is a great watch and offers a fairly realistic view of startups, Silicon Valley and making it in tech.


7. The Last Resort

From the creator if The Shield, a US sub receives an order for a nuke launch. The Captain refuses to fire, and the crew and SEALs take refuge on a small island. Then the real fun begins.


8. The Strange Calls

Hot Fuzz meets Haven, Aussie-style: A lighthearted, supernatural cop show set in a fictional Australian seaside community called Coolum. There’s also a US remake in the works set to star Danny Pudi from Community.


9. Come Fly With Me

The hilarious Little Britain team take to the skies, playing a range of characters you’ll find when you fly. Despite being an enormous ratings success in the UK (and being offered a second season) the comedy duo decided not to continue with the series.


10. Dig

From the producers of Homeland and Heroes, Dig is the story of Peter, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem. While investigating a murder of a young female archaeologist he uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making.
