It would be cool if on the status of a series, those that were canceled showed up as canceled. There ia a big difference in "ended" (has an ending) and "canceled" (has no ending, normally).
The thing that complicates this is that there may not be a clear line between the two. There are obvious cases. However, if a show got renewed, but only for one more season, they could make an ending. Ended, right? But if they had planned to do three more seasons, it's not entirely that clear.
And then there are the shows that got cancelled but then got one or more episodes to wrap things up, but that also means they have to do so a lot more rushed. And how about a show that basically wrapped up its main storyline, but started a new one, only to get cancelled two seasons later? Or a show that was cancelled but that was so episodic that its basically indistinguishable from having ended? Or the ones that lived off of season arcs, where the only sign it's not an ending is a cliffhanger at the end that isn't that important to begin with...

If I remember correctly a few months ago there were cancelled and ended shows. But now it's only ended everywhere.
This is a must. Looking for recommendations to watch would be great to know if a show's story actually ended instead of starting a show getting into it only to find out it was cancelled after a couple of season with no ending.
This kind of specifics is actually supported by The Movie Database but not The TV Database, and it's obviously the latter that Trakt imports the show status from. Hopefully it is possible to change the source for this info to TMDb.
