The Best TV Show Finales Ever

Producing a successful series finale is a very challenging feat. With millions of viewers invested in the show’s characters,  they want to see them get the ending they deserve and also see the show go out with a bang. That’s why it’s rare to find a series finale which everyone finds perfect, here are the six best series endings:


I haven’t met any Friends fan who was dissatisfied by its finale. The show ended with a fan-favorite couple finally getting back together and everyone else moving on with their lives in one way or another, leaving viewers extremely nostalgic about the fact they won’t be seeing the gang hanging out together ever again.


When 24 ended its 8 season run, most people agreed that it was anticlimactic and that it didn’t give us any closure. However, the show decided to air a ninth season this year (24: Live Another Day) which gave us more than we ever imagined and concluded Jack Bauer’s story with an epic set of events.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Despite the fact that the last two seasons of Buffy were met with some criticism, the finale was able to deliver a beautiful conclusion to the slayer’s tale, and a couple of shocking death scenes that shook us to our core. Probably not everyone agrees with me on this, but in my opinion this show’s ending deserves a spot on this list.


Several months after it had aired, millions of people were still discussing Lost’s controversial finale. In fact, many of them misunderstood it by thinking that they’ve been dead all along while others needed more answers to the numerous mysteries the show introduced. Still, our favorite characters got a perfect closure, so everyone who was truly invested in them adored the finale.

Breaking Bad

The complexity of this show’s premise made it quite difficult for the writers to please everyone; the main character was an “anti-hero” and no one really knew what he deserved. (a happy ending? Imprisonment? Death?) Yet, the show managed to give us a brilliant ending that lived up to our expectations and somehow exceeded them.

Six Feet Under

No other show was capable of giving its viewers the true sense of the word “closure” like Six Feet Under was. In fact, the last five minutes, which were perfectly-suited with the show’s concept, left us awfully emotional to the point where anyone who hears “Breathe Me” by Sia today would absolutely get the chills.

Now it’s your turn, what are your all-time favorite series finales?
