Yes, a strong openness is essential to good television. What’s more important? A memorable ending.

For this reason, at the 2021 TV Scoop Awards, we’re next honoring the best finals (both season and series) that the 2020-2021 television season had to offer. We take a closer look at the heartwarming goodbyes, hot goodbyes and more.

For starters we just need to highlight the stunning ending to Sex / Life that housewife Billie (Sarah Shahi) cheats on husband Cooper (Mike Vogel) by having an affair with bad boy ex boyfriend Brad (Adam Demos). Just when we thought we knew what was going to happen, the Netflix drama turned the script on us.

Of course, Sex / Life isn’t the only contender in the Best Season Final category as it competes against the finals of Ted Lasso, The Flight Attendant, Bridgerton, Loki, Outer Banks, Cruel Summer, and The Wilds.

While these shows were just saying goodbye for now, as most of them were renewed after their first seasons, we sadly had to say goodbye to some of our favorites forever.
