Top 10 TV Shows That Totally Abandoned Past Storylines

Did they really think we’d just forget about these? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 TV shows that totally abandoned past storylines. For this list, we’re looking at storylines, characters and plot arcs that seemed like they were going somewhere interesting… but then the shows shifted focus or ended up ignoring these elements. We are, however, excluding retcons that actively erased events from a show’s canon – y’know, like how “Will & Grace”’s original last season is no longer part of the show’s continuity in the reboot series. Anyway, we will be talking about major plot points, so expect some spoilers. But since we’re spoiling unresolved plots, does it even matter?
