7 TV Shows That Didn’t Deserve A Second Season

  

Sometimes a show only really gets it right during their first season. Subsequent seasons just aren’t as good, which gets some fans wondering, why did they decide to continue with the show when it clearly just wasn’t as good? We have a list of 7 shows that didn’t really deserve a second season after they got it right during season one and then fell totally off track.

7. Prison Break

Season one of Prison Break ended with Lincoln and Michael escaping from the Fox River State Penitentiary, which would have been a fitting end to show, but no! Instead they dragged the story out for another four seasons. Even after Fox cancelled the drama in 2009, it still managed to come back for a fifth season in 2017. Considering that Fox had initially rejected the show in 2003 because execs were concerned about its long-term prospects, they probably should have listened to their initial instincts because the show should have only been one season.

6. The Killing

The Killing alienated its fans when it didn’t reveal who Rosie Larsen’s killer was at the end of season one. Instead they dragged the mystery out until the season two finale. When it was finally revealed that Jamie, one of the mayor’s assistants, and her aunt, Terry, were the ones who killed Rosie, fans couldn’t help but feel disappointed. No one expected either of them to be responsible and no one really believed it either. The big issue with The Killing is really that the murder investigation was dragged out far too long. It could have been solved during season one and at least fans would have received the closure they needed.
