A look at some of our favorite supporting characters and the great spin-offs they could star in.

#10 Chloe O’Brian, 24

Show Title: O’Brian Premise: Thanks to her countless moments of brilliance under pressure, Chloe is put in charge of a new government think tank designed to come up with scenarios for any and all possible threatening situations. From terrorists attacks to natural disasters to alien invasions, Chloe and her team are prepared for anything.

#9 Zack Addy, Bones

Show Title: Mad Addy Premise: Locked in a mental institution, Zack Addy uses his immense intellect to solve various mysteries and crimes, proving that the patients really do run the asylum.

Zack Addy, Bones

#8 Shauna Roberts, Entourage

Show Title: Shauna Rules Premise: With Entourage ending it makes sense to continue with this great, underused character. Shauna is a superstar publicist, but what is it really like trying to manage celebrities’ lives while dealing with your own personal problems as well?

Shauna Roberts, Entourage

#7 Astrid Farnsworth, Fringe

Show Title: Astrid Premise: She may experience crazy things in her line of work, but at home, Astrid is just like any other girl with friends, family and plenty of relationship drama. I imagine this as an almost Felicity-esque series about a girl’s romantic troubles, only with the possibility of alternate universes and other sci-fi weirdness.

Astrid Farnsworth, Fringe

#6 Lucas Douglas, House

Show Title: Private Lucas Premise: There was originally talk of giving a spin-off to Michael Weston’s wily private investigator, but sadly it never panned out. Now that he and Cuddy are done since she’s moved on to House, maybe he could finally get his own show, an off-beat private detective series worthy of this great perennial guest star.

Lucas Douglas, House

#5 Dylan, Modern Family

Show Title: Do Me Premise: Dylan’s band hits it big thanks to their viral Internet music video for “In the Moonlight," leading to a move to New York City where Dylan and his friends struggle to navigate the music scene.

Dylan, Modern Family

#4 Darryl Philbin, The Office

Show Title: The Warehouse Premise: Due to his excellent job performance, Darryl gets moved to a new city to take control of the warehouse operations with occasional interruptions from the desk jockeys upstairs.

Darryl Philbin, The Office

#3 Oliver Queen, Smallville

Show Title: Green Arrow Premise: With Smallville finally ending, it’s time to dump Clark and focus entirely on the Green Arrow, giving the pleather-clad marksman his own superhero show.

Oliver Queen, Smallville

#2 Castiel, Supernatural

Show Title: Heaven’s Keeper Premise: A daring new fantasy series set entirely in Heaven, the angel Castiel has to clean up a shattered Heaven and bring order back to the afterlife. The show could include numerous guest appearances by any dead Supernatural characters.

Castiel, Supernatural

#1 Heylia and Conrad, Weeds

Show Title: The Grass is Greener Premise: What have drug dealers Heylia and Conrad been up to since they finally got Nancy Botwin out of their lives? They’ve started over and created lucrative new business, but nothing ever goes smoothly in the wonderful world of weed.

Heylia and Conrad, Weeds
