Amazon is reviving this canceled drama despite its terrible rating on Rotten Tomatoes

Whenever many of us hear news that one of our favorite shows has been cancelled, there is always that brief glimmer of hope that some other network will get it, but examples of this happening are pretty rare.

These things are rare, but they do happen, typically for shows with small, passionate fanbases that aren’t attracting enough viewers to satisfy advertisers. All this makes the American Rust case even stranger.
