13 TV Shows That Suffered a Sophomore Slump

Look through our photo gallery of shows that had a sophomore slump.

1. Prison Break

Prison Break
The Fox Fiver inmates (finally!) escaped at the conclusion of the freshman season, but the government conspiracy raged on against the Scofields again and they had to find a way to evade the law at all costs.

2. Suburgatory

Suburgatory was one of the finest comedies in Season 1, but by the time Season 2 came around, it lost the spark it once had. Remember the Halloween episode with the witches? We wish we didn’t either.

3. Heroes

The writers strike did not ruin Heroes. The poor writing after the first season did. When you have an interesting bunch of characters, why add another bunch at the same time? It just complicates things.

4. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl
The scandalous lives of our Gossip Girl characters were really interesting for much of the fall run of the sophomore season, but then things just got plain ugly in the second half. Chuck was a shell of his former self and the fact that they killed off Bart Bass, just to pave the way for Lily and Rufus to (finally!) get together was just weird since all they done was argue for much of their relationship.

5. Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time
Given the way that Season 1 concluded, Once Upon A Time had a lot going for it, but the second season started well, but faltered quickly. The most annoying development has got to be Snow and Emma ending up in the enchanted forrest.

6. Reign

Reign has really struggled in it's second season. The show has almost destroyed the character of Mary Queen of Scots by throwing her into another love triangle. Remember how that last one worked out, Mary?
