Extending popular television shows

There are many successful television shows that continue producing more seasons. Some fans will continue watching no matter what, but producers can compromise quality for the sake of further profit. At what point do TV shows need to end, so that viewers do not feel obligated to keep watching a show simply because there are more episodes available.

  • could be interesting to discuss the tv show 'skins' as it has multiple generations within similar storylines/ the same world – lizawood 11 months ago
  • Five seasons is typically good, depending on how many episodes are in each season. If it is 20 plus episodes, then five seasons and move on. Those with only ten or so episodes can go longer but any show running eight years, it's time for something new. It becomes monotonous, the creativity starts to lack, and the storylines go south. – Montayj79 11 months ago
