After two successful seasons on WGN America, the period drama is coming to an end because the network was acquired by the Sinclair Group in a $3.9 billion deal. The right-leaning owners want more conservative programming, which apparently doesn't include slave stories from the Underground Railroad— an integral part of American history.

Nonetheless, the networks it could land are endless. OWN with Greenleaf and Queen Sugar? AMC with The Walking Dead and Preacher? TNT with Major Crimes and The Last Ship?
