The series was taken off air mid-way through the run, as it was deemed too scary.

    Can you offer any more information such as any specific events, character names, who the villains were, etc? – Valorum Apr 13 '14 at 19:20

The only show I can think of that comes close to this description is the 1984 TV series "The Tripods" which features several children in leading roles and regularly had them traipsing through waterlogged countryside.

The show was cancelled before its finale season but because of poor ratings (e.g. versus the cost of production) rather than because it was too scary

    Hmmm, this is the 2nd 'story identification' question about The Tripods posted in the last few weeks... HERE – 22nd Century Fza Apr 14 '14 at 5:07

The British post-apocalyptic children's series that was never finished was The Tripods, but that had nothing to do with flooding and was not taken off-air because it was too scary, but simply because the budget was cut.
