Queer representation on the small screen has hit record highs, according to GLAAD’s Where We Are on TV Report for the 2021-2022 season. 

But as we celebrate these numbers and hope for even better ones in the years to come, it’s hard not to notice the worrying number of LGBTQ+ TV shows getting axed from streaming platforms.

Here are 12 great LGBTQ+ TV shows that deserve way more than the time they were given. 


Netflix announced that 1899 was the most watched show across 58 countries. But on January 2, Odar and Friese broke the news to fans pf its cancellation.

The series is based on Victoria Schwab’s short story of the same name and premiered on Netflix in June 2022. 

First Kill (2022)

High Fidelity is based on the 1995 novel by Nick Hornby and the 2000 High Fidelity film. But in its reimagining, the main character Rob is gender-flipped and played by Zoë Kravitz.
