List RulesOnly shows that were officially cancelled. Vote up the best series that you were saddest to hear had met an untimely end.

Has your favorite Amazon original been canceled? Do you think these shows ended too soon? Look to this list for every Amazon show that has been canceled. As a competitor in the realm of streaming television, Amazon has continued to expand its original content production. The increase in original production has also led to an increase in the number of canceled Amazon series. Mozart in the Jungle, Hand of God, and One Mississippi enjoyed at least a few seasons before being canceled, while other series, such as Betas, Good Girls Revolt, and Jean-Claude Van Johnson were canceled after their first season.

Not sure if your favorite Amazon original is coming back for another season? Check this list for what shows Amazon is getting rid of and all Amazon cancellations. You won't find Transparent on this list, as it concluded with a scheduled fifth season. There are a few other shows on hiatus and will be added to the list once their cancellations by Amazon have been confirmed.

Even canceled shows can be among the best ever. Not to worry, Amazon Prime subscribers continue to have access to the best canceled Amazon originals long after the cancellation of the series.
