Among our selections you will find several broadcast favorites like NBC Hypermarket and CBS ‘ Mum, a pair of CW superheroes and critical favorites Pose and PEN15. We have also selected the last hours of Shameless, the daring type, Lucifer and Wynonna earp – but is it a good thing? You just have to read to find out!

Also, as stated above, we did not note all final of only one series from last year, but instead chose a few selected series that ended on their own terms.
