Why was Northern Exposure Cancelled? What show was it spun-off from?

    Because as great as the series was in its first few seasons, it stank in premafrost by the end. Just a guess that viewership was down, but there was little magic left once Dr. Joel left the practice to become a hermite. It was a beautiful ending that took his character full circle, but they tried to replace him with new characters similar to the old Dr. Flieschman, but they had no where new to go.

    it did lose some energy, though not its beauty, by the end. but as for its being a spinoff, i can't even imagine anything remotely similar to it that preceded it. i do not believe it was spun off from anything but its creators' minds.

    The series was cancelled when the ratings dropped after Rob Morrow finally left. The series itself was not a spin-off, and contained no characters, from any other series. Why did you think it was?
