Comedy will tend to be 2 or maybe 3... dramas I feel like often peak even later.

just talking dramas..
make or break, and even if its not their best season it's where most of the better shows really find their feet.

there are exceptions. I think Snowfall was a middling to good show for 2.75 seasons, and in Season 4 is really turning that corner to something special

Better Call Saul is better than ever but that's a pretty unique situation.

Most of them though... Sopranos, The Shield, Breaking Bad, Succession, Justified, Homeland, Mad Men and a bunch of others i'm sure i left out either came into their own or really started to pop in their second seasons

Even a shitty show like Sons of Anarchy had a good second season.

I look at The Wire...my favorite season is 4 but I could easily be swayed to 3 and I have a lot of love for 1 as well

If you look at a franchise like L&O though...especially the original. It didn't really get GOOD to me til season 5.

Martin...there's something redeemable about each season (though 5 is a STRUGGLE), but I think 3 is where it peaked.

Like after a stellar season, it's quite possible to follow that up with a middling season that they can shrug off as a one off wack turn. And a series can learn from that and get back to form. But if the show continues in the wrong direction for 2 seasons then they don't know how to fix it and then you have them move to a new location and add a new character.

Sopranos, Mad Men, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul ... there were others I can't recall right now ... all had terrific 3rd seasons and arguably their best.

if you could only pick one season for dramas and even comedies, S3 would come out on top for most of them (to me).

most shows that peak in S2 aren't good enough to be worth five seasons anyway.
