The Originals - New Orleans, Louisiana. Who knew that the French Quarter was actually full of werewolves and witches and Original vampires? These supernaturals are thirsty for more than just bourbon!

19. Maine

Once Upon a Time - Storybrooke, Maine. The Evil Queen cursed all her least favorite fairytale characters to the real world, and apparently, she's a fan of coastal Maine!

20. Maryland

Hannibal - Baltimore, Maryland. If you're squeamish, then stay away from this particular slice of the U.S. Hannibal tends to have a pretty gruesome menu.

Dawson's Creek - Capeside, Massachusetts. Who knew that the teen soap to end all teen soaps was so far north? Dawon and his friends stayed close to home, even in their college years!

22. Michigan

Battle Creek - Battle Creek, Michigan. An FBI agent and small town detective might seem like and odd match, but they make damn good TV!

24. Mississippi

In the Heat of the Night - Sparta, Mississippi. Another oldie, this 80s procedural drama tackled quite a few progressive issues for its day!

Defiance - St. Louis, Missouri. Sci-fi fans love this take on a totally transformed earth where aliens and new species run rampant!

26. Montana

27. Nebraska

Young Riders - Nebraska Territory. What's more American than a old-western set in the years just before the Civil War?

CSI - Las Vegas, Nevada. The city of sin also has a lot of murder – go figure. That's why they need this awesome team of crime scene investigators!

Jumanji - Keene, New Hampshire. This animated adaptation of the box office hit, Jumanji was a fun and free spirited ride for everyone who ever wanted to see a deathly board game come to life!

Nikita - rural New Jersey. We might not know exactly where Division is located (that's kind of the point after all) but we know it's somewhere in the New Jersey farmland.

New Mexico
Breaking Bad - Albuquerque, New Mexico. Whether they're cooking up drugs or cooking up trouble, you've got to love the craziness of Brian and Jesse.

New York
Suits - New York City, New York. These hot shot lawyers are at the top of the world in their NYC highrise. Even if only one of them has a degree...
