TV Shows That Went Downhill After Season 1
8. 'Once Upon a Time' (2011-'18)
Once Upon a Time won Disney fans' hearts in 2011 with a magical first season centered around the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), in the small New England town of Storybrooke. Emma discovers all her neighbors have incredible fairytale pasts and the show smartly brings in familiar characters for adventures. However, the formula proved a bit much in following seasons. The show lost track of Emma a bit, added tons of characters, and went in wayward directions.
