We appear to be right in the middle of TV culling season, and yet another beloved show fails to make it another round. TNT is closing the book on its series The Librarians.

For those not in the know, The Librarians was an adventure show in which a team for four Librarians with various skillets journey to solve mysteries, find powerful artifacts, and fight against supernatural threats, with a returning villain being the Serpent Brotherhood. 

The show goes in a decidedly campier direction than the majority of TNT’s new scripted shows, including The Alienist and the upcoming Snowpiercer. The show was developed prior to the hiring of current TBS and TNT president Kevin Reilly. Reilly was responsible for cancelling other fan favorites, including Major Crimes, Murder in the First, Rizzoli & Isles. Overall, it’s hard to deny that the cancel is going in a darker, and more expensive, direction which leave The Librarians as the odd one out.

Show runner Dean Devlin, however, has inspired some hope with this message on Twitter:

That’s right, in an age where streaming services pick up cable shows for continuations, The Librarians might have a second life, coming soon to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, or other streaming service near you. After all, it wasn’t like there was a rating drop that led to this dropping, so any place that picks it up is sure to bring along a pretty devoted fanbase.
