Can anyone help me with some answers about canceled tv shows?
A lot of,in my opinion, really good tv shows get canceled before their time,and sometime the last show has a cliffhanger, is there any source on line that has the answers? like for instance the show John Doe went 1 full season and ended with a cliffhanger,and I'm dying to know what he was why digger was involved,and so on. I know some shows get picked up by other networks,ie Sliders and some get resolved with a movie , ie Firefly,.but the ones that don't do the show runners ever reveal their plans for the stories or the resolution to cliffhangers?Right now I'm dying to know whats going on with Alcatraz which got canceled also Terra Nova, and there have been other shows I've been curious about.please any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank You.

Ugh. I hate when shows I enjoyed end in a cliffhanger. I ended up doing some googling and while there are a couple sites that list cliffhanger resolutions or sites that have lists of canceled shows, not one site really compiles it but I did find an article from 2004 on Entertainment Weekly's site that interviewed the creators of John Doe and this is a quote from the article:
Where We Left Off: Doe was helping the police solve crimes and being tracked by a seemingly nefarious group called the Phoenix Organization. He finally unmasked the big bad, a villain nicknamed Stocking Cap -- his friend, Digger (played by William Forsythe)!
What Would Have Happened: Make that someone who looked like John's friend. The villain unmasked in the finale was actually just a Phoenix member with some fancy facial reconstruction. Turns out, the Phoenix believed Doe was the Messiah and its members were actually protecting Doe from a second group, which wanted him dead. The truth: Doe was injured in a boating accident. That mark on his chest? A scar left by a piece of shrapnel from the explosion. His Überbrain? A by-product of transcending his body during a near-death experience, traveling to a spiritual plane where all the universe's questions are answered.
So Who is John Doe?! "You'd think we actually would have come up with his name," the show's producer revealed. "We have no idea," he finally admitted, before adding "Fred."
As far as Alcatraz and Terra Nova, you can always google the show's name and cliffhanger resolution. Or google the creators name and find any new articles talking about the show. As far as older shows, you can google the shows name and cliffhanger + resolution. Or cliffhanger + answers. Sorry I wasn't better help!
