The new year is less than a month a way, but before you start pumping yourself up for 2018, you should be aware that it will mark the end of some of television's most beloved series. There are at least 11 TV shows ending in 2018 that will surely leave gaping holes in the hearts of fans everywhere. Bright side? You might free up some of your time for new programming (there. is. so. much.), although you'll have to come to terms with your favorite characters falling into that unfortunate terminal series finale black hole FOREVER. Unless, of course, the show gets a reboot or a revival at some point in the near or far future, because that's a thing now.
This year saw the end of shows like Pretty Little Liars, Girls, Orphan Black, The Leftovers, and The Mindy Project. We laughed, we cried, we came to terms with it, and thanked our lucky streaming stars that we live in a world where content never dies and old faves are almost always at our fingertips. But what will become of people who have basically become intrinsically linked to our everyday life? Olivia Pope, Nick Miller, Selina Meyer... You are always with us. Here are 11 TV shows you should start preparing to see off into the small screen sunset.
