Television fans are still reeling from the bloodbath of series cancellations that took place in early May, leaving many fan-favorite actors without a job.
There's a bright side, however, as many TV stars will surely bounce back and find other epic roles to entertain fans for years to come. While we wait for official announcements, might as well put some positive energy into the world and come up with some dream roles for some of our favorite actors to fill.
Scroll through to see some of our dream casting choices for actors from recently canceled series.
Now that the series has been canceled, Wolk would be a great fit on Grey's Anatomy spinoff Station 19, which will likely need help filling the void left by the likely deaths of more than one of its firefighters, after the crew was caught in a serious skyscraper fire during the cliffhanger-heavy first season finale.
Should the series not move forward, Mary Steenburgen — who played Gail Klosterman on the Fox comedy — would make an interesting and compelling choice to play Bill Hader's mother in the upcoming season of HBO's dark comedy Barry.
If Matt Ryan's Constantine is any indication that no DC Comics-inspired TV character is ever truly dead, given that his series was canceled in 2015 and the character has joined the cast of D.C.'s Legends of Tomorrow, there might be a chance for Ellis' Lucifer to join the Waverider in the future.
Martin shines in any role she tackles, from Difficult People to The Good Fight, and we think she might fit in perfectly with the cast of Netflix's Grace and Frankie. With the titular characters now living in a nursing home, they'll need allies (or enemies) to interact with in this new stage in their lives, and Martin would be perfect for the challenge.
With his good looks in tow, Vogel would fit in with the cast of ABC's How to Get Away With Murder, either as a new adversary to Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) and/or potential love interest for one of the members of the Keating 4.
Skodje told PopCulture.com exclusively she dreams of one day making an appearance on Netflix's Fuller House. We think Skodje would make great friends with Max Fuller (Elias Harger).
TVLine first thought of this casting choice, and I honestly haven't stopped thinking about how perfect this would be. Priyanka Chopra made history by being the first South Asian actress to lead a network television drama with Quantico. After convoluted storylines and showrunner changes, the series was canceled after three seasons, leaving Chopra to roam free to other projects.
Seeing Chopra introduced as Batwoman in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event this fall would pretty much guarantee a spinoff series... please?
Ritter would fit in great with the cast of NBC's This Is Us. Toby (Chris Sullivan) will be facing some serious health (or depression issues) in the upcoming season, and who better than Ritter to help him and his new wife Kate (Chrissy Metz) through it.
After the end of Glee, Michele worked with Murphy one more time on Fox's Scream Queens. She then jumped over to ABC for short-lived comedy The Mayor. Now that she is again free, the newly engaged actress should rejoin former Scream Queens co-star Billie Lourd for the next season of FX's anthology horror series.
We know the cast of the NBC musical drama is busy with other projects, but a Smash reunion TV movie needs to be made, at least for the few outspoken fans that are still asking for it.
