Micheletto, "The Borgias"The scandalous relationship between Cesare and Lucrezia gets most of the attention when people talk about this period drama. As good as that aspect of the show is, Micheletto's assassination subplots are always incredible. In fact, Micheletto may just be the most underrated character on this Showtime drama.
Micheletto deserves his own spinoff because of Sean Harris's sheer acting talent. More to the point, Micheletto is a character that's still swamped in mystery. He's scary, but also a little bit sexy, and he moves with a balletic kind of grace that is simply spellbinding. Plenty of fans want Micheletto to get more screen time.
Gwen and Jane, "Downton Abbey"Fans have already weighed in with ideas for a proposed spinoff featuring Anna and Bates as private detectives. It's an interesting idea that's unlikely to gain any traction, which is too bad.
But whatever happened to Gwen Dawson, the Season 1 character who left service to become a typist? Pair her up with dismissed maid Jane Moorsum, and you've got two of the nicest, most loveable characters in "Downton" history. Fans would love to see what they've been up to, and the two characters would work well in a series that aimed to explore the changing roles of women in the early 20th century or during World War II.
Albert "Chalky" White, "Boardwalk Empire"Chalky started off as a relatively minor character, but his role on the show has grown over time. His backstory is still a bit murky, and he is very charismatic. He's a big enough character that he may be starting to outgrow his own show and could certainly anchor a spinoff series.
Harry Crane and Paul Kinsey, "Mad Men"As much as fans miss Sal Romano, he lacks the character development needed to make him a spinoff star. Harry Crane and Paul Kinsey, on the other hand, would be great as an "Odd Couple" pairing. Send them off to sunny California and give the pair a show about pitching TV shows in the 1970s! Watching these two try to navigate Hollywood during the '70s would be awesomely entertaining.
