You already why I’m writing this post. To answer your question, yes, we are going to talk about it. It’s amazing how TV Show writers can end things in the worst way possible after attracting millions of viewers worldwide. The last thing that they should ever think of doing is making a horrible ending. Lo and behold, they did. Let’s look at the top 5 beloved TV shows with horrible endings.
5. The O.C.
The teen/young adult drama was an instant favorite among the young demographic in its first season (which aired in 2003). The series centers around Ryan Atwood, a troubled youth from a broken home who is finally adopted, by the rich Cohen family, who lives in sunny Orange County. Hence the name of the show.
The show’s quality started to decline with every new season as the teenagers went to college. By the time it ended in 2007, fans were already tired of it.
4. The Vampire Diaries
I actually used to watch this show until I got to the fourth season where the storyline became ridiculous. During its early seasons, The Vampire Diaries was sneakily one of the best shows on the air. It was fast-paced, emotional, and action-packed. But things slowed down somewhere along the way, and the series became repetitive, with much lower stakes.
The show was dragged until the 8th season when it concluded on a rather low note. Like I said, the story became bonkers from the fourth season.
This used to be my personal favorite show back in the day. To relive the good old days, I went and searched for all the 9 seasons. The first 8 are great seasons but the 9th season was just garbage. The writers introduced us to a new cast (not JD and the gang), a new hospital and a new storyline.
It was more of a spin-off show than a continuation and this move angered a lot of fans. Perhaps they expected us to like it? No, give me back JD.

2. Game of Thrones
This must suck for a lot of people. Remember the hype surrounding the new season? How do you feel now after that ending? What’s interesting is that the final season didn’t follow the book’s narrative; because there isn’t a conclusion yet from the author.
I will give the directors and A+ for the great visuals but the writers get an F for ruining the plot.
1. The Office
The writers made a bad move to remove Michael Scott from the last season. He was the only reason why I watched the show in the first place. It’s like removing Jesus from the picture about salvation; it doesn’t make sense.
To be fair, they did a good job trying to focus on other characters but I didn’t care for them. You know what would have made it a better season? Including Michael Scott. It’s that simple.
Which other shows do you know of that had horrible endings? Let us know in the comments section.
