Due to production shutting down in Hollywood, some shows had to end their current seasons earlier than planned — and for some, that left fans frustrated with the finales they got.
Fortunately, there are plenty of dramas that you can watch all the seasons of for some closure if you're feeling a bit incomplete after the 2019-2020 season. Whether you're looking for something a bit more straight-forward, like Revenge or Scandal, or something with a sci-fi or fantasy twist, like Arrow or Once Upon a Time, you have options.
TV Insider staffers reveal the character dramas and mysteries keeping them entertained, from classics like 'The West Wing' to newer faves like 'Grey's Anatomy.'

The Arrowverse may live on, but it all started with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), returning home after five years (not only on an island) to right his father’s wrongs as a vigilante-turned-hero. The heroes he inspired, as well as others he met along the way, continue the fight, but the eight seasons of Oliver’s journey ended with a fitting conclusion for the Green Arrow.
Yes, there’s a reboot coming, but what about watching the original update on a classic? The 2004 series followed humanity’s fight against robots (Cylons) as they searched for a planet to call home.

Amanda Clarke became Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and came to the Hamptons armed with a red pen and a list of people who needed to pay for framing her father, David (James Tupper). What followed were four seasons of plotting, betrayal, murder, a happily ever after for some, and, of course, revenge.
