25 TV Characters That Deserve Spinoff Shows

The Wives

Original Show: Big Love
Played By: Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin
The Pitch: Watching Big Love, you can't help but wonder what Barb, Nicki, and Margene would get into if they came untethered from the Henrickson clan. Unfortunately, just when viewers were about to have the opportunity, the series came to an end. Each of these women was so fully realized and so radically different, they invited the focus of a spinoff, where viewers could follow the characters as they either stuck with or abandoned Mormonism. All three might be too busy for something like this, as Tripplehorn is on Criminal Minds, Goodwin is tied up with Once Upon A Time, and Sevigny has American Horror Story and a film career, but if they got around to a Big Love reunion—minus the man in charge—we'd come running.
