Just as all TV series aren’t created equal, neither are all series finales. Many are fine, a few are quite poor, but some are no less than fantastic.
The TVLine staff dug in its heels and took a long, hard look at our ranking of the greatest series finales ever, and gave it a freshening-up. The result is a robust, exciting revisiting of the 25 Best Series Finales of All Time, including the utterly sublime swan songs of gritty dramas, big-hearted comedies and several genre-TV favorites.
Review our picks below and then hit the comments with the truly grand finales that you’re glad to see included — as well as those you would have singled out yourself!
