No Way: Disney Channel Shows That Got Canceled Before They Aired on TV

Zombies is coming to Disney Channel in 2018 and it's got everything you could ever want in a Disney Channel Original Movie. There are zombies and cheerleaders and not to mention, it's also a musical! But did you know the idea originally started out as a series? The pilot never made it to air and Disney obviously saved the premise for a later project — and we're so glad they did!

The show version was called Zombies and Cheerleaders and believe it or not, it's hardly the first time Disney has canceled a show before the pilot has even aired. Tons of your favorite stars like Brec Bassinger, Maia Mitchell, Selena Gomez, and more were originally tied to other projects that never got picked up before they had their big breaks. (Poor Luke Benward, TBH. He's been part of not one but two failed Disney sitcoms!)
