10 TV Shows Redditors Watched The Most Before They Finally Quit | Pretty Reel

Fans are gearing up to tune in to the final season of Riverdale, which will begin airing in early 2023. While many viewers have seen every episode, others have stopped following the show in favor of others who retain more their attention. Some TV fans never skip an episode of a favorite show, even if they’re bored or the new storylines aren’t as well developed. Others prefer to quit, even after watching the majority of episodes.

Fans on Reddit are sharing the TV shows they’ve said goodbye to, even after watching most seasons. These series are all popular, beloved and have at least seven seasons. When the plots become less realistic and the series looks completely different, some fans give up in favor of other content.

Pretty Little Liars (2010-2017)

Stream on HBO Max

Although fans love the strong characters and twists of Pretty Little Liars, a common criticism is that the mystery veers in confusing directions and it can be difficult to watch each episode. Redditor Xanderic stopped watching the show and posted, “Who wAs A got more and more ridiculous. »

Pretty Little Liars has a few filler episodes and it seems like it takes a long time to find out who A is, with Uber A and the members of Team A hunting down and hurting Liars for years.

Grey’s Anatomy (2005-)

Stream on Hulu

Grey’s Anatomy is a series with two types of fans: those who will never stop watching and those who gave up a few seasons ago. Redditor jordy_muhnordy wrote, “After season 12 (maybe 13? I lost track) there was nothing new and I lost interest. »

Although the story of Meredith Gray is moving and compelling, and there are many exciting episodes and beautiful couples, sometimes it can be difficult to stick with a series that has more than 10 seasons. It’s hard to feel that each new season is alike in terms of character arcs and exciting twists.

The X Files (1993-2018)

Stream on HBO Max

For Redditor spinereader81, The X-Files is the series they decided to end after watching several seasons. The fan wrote, “I just loved the show but it started to get bogged down with so much conspiratorial stuff which got boring for me. »

The X-Files is a good example of a show that seems compelling at first, then can become stereotypical after a while thanks to the episode structure as Case of the Week or Monster of the Week.

Grimm (2011-2017)

Stream on Prime Video

Grimm is a fun ride with fantasy elements and a strong main character in Nick Burkhardt, a police investigator who discovers his family has always been tasked with stopping creatures called Wesen from harming humans. Redditor Enough-Ad-3818 left the show and wrote, “It got so repetitive.”

Similar to other shows about lawyers or private detectives, each episode of Grimm starts to fade after a while, which is why it can be an entertaining show at first, then less exciting.

Supernatural (2005-2020)

Stream on Netflix

Considering Supernatural has 15 seasons, it makes sense that this is a show that many fans have watched most of the time and then decided it was time to let go. Redditor philipfoden said, “I watched about 9-10 seasons before giving up,” and Redditor Educational-Tower added, “I gave up in season four. Far too repetitive. »

While fans love Supernatural, 15 seasons is really a lot. It can sometimes feel like Sam and Dean Winchester find themselves in the same situations over and over again, which is why some people watch most of the show and then find something else.

Suits (2011-2019)

Stream to Prime Video

Redditor countd0wns hasn’t finished finishing Suits and wrote, “I stopped watching when Meghan Markle and Patrick Adams left. At the end of Season 7, Rachel Zane and Mike Ross have a happy ending as their storylines culminate in their marriage.

Suits still has two more seasons after this big event, but it makes sense that some fans decided to call it quits because they enjoyed watching these intelligent characters and the love they have for each other. Season 8 introduces a new character, Samantha Wheeler, played by Katherine Heigl, but for some viewers, Rachel and Mike were the heart of the show.

Once upon a time (2011-2018)

Stream on Disney+

Once Upon A Time tells an exciting and magical story about a world where fairy tale characters are real. But although there are seven seasons, not everyone clung to it and enjoyed it until the very end. A Redditor said, “Discontinued after a few episodes in the final season. It was not the same show. »

While Once Upon a Time has some brave characters and it’s fun to see such beloved characters like Captain Hook and the Evil Queen come to life, the show can feel more the same after a while, which makes hard to want to continue.

House (2004-2012)

Stream on Prime Video

A big reason to stop watching a popular show, even if someone likes the characters and the main storyline, is that the episodes feel like repeats of each other. Responding in a thread about stopping a TV show after watching multiple seasons, Redditor f1umpf said they dropped “House” and added that it was “form”.

While House’s cynical and confident personality is appreciated, and there are enough unique instances to keep viewers interested episode after episode, it makes sense that for some, each episode of House isn’t different enough.

The Walking Dead (2010-2022)

Stream on Netflix

The Walking Dead ended with its series finale on November 20, 2022, and since the intense and dramatic show aired for 11 seasons, it’s definitely been a long journey for fans.

Redditor pat9714 wrote “After season 7 (or was it six?), I quit The Walking Dead altogether” because of “the formulaic plot that resurfaces over and over again using different characters.” This is the kind of show that constantly keeps viewers spellbound.

Dexter (2006-2013)

Stream to Prime Video

A Redditor said that they left Dexter and “stopped after season 4, which was apparently a good decision.” While many fans were excited to watch the Dexter: New Blood reboot, which aired from 2021 to 2022, several fans were upset when Dexter’s wife, Rita, was murdered.

If some Dexter viewers stopped watching the show at any point, it would have been after watching the first three seasons, as it was painful to continue after Dexter lost Rita. It was a bold decision to kill off this favorite character.
