Creating a long-running and successful series is the dream of every producer and network, but actually achieving that dream is a difficult task. Along with an intriguing storyline, the cast has to be one that fans really connect with and actors and actresses who make their role believable. Dramas are the most common series on TV and some have seen incredible success along the way with huge and extremely loyal and passionate fanbases thanks in large part to the amazing cast that was brought together to tell the story! Here are 13 cast ensembles from some of TV’s most popular drama series ranked from worst to best:
Nashville might be heading for a sixth season, but it hasn’t been an easy road. The American musical drama has a legion of loyal fans and two fantastic lead actresses in Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, but over time things have began to fall apart in the series. The over-the-top dramatics have at times proven to be too much for some of the stars of the show and it was reflected in the falling ratings that caused ABC to cancel the series. Luckily, CMT picked up the series but now, with the exit of Britton, the series has not only lost a key member of its ensemble but has an even bigger battle ahead to keep the series running with the remaining cast without encountering the same drop in ratings.
