It's almost that time. A slew of TV shows will wrap up their seasons in the coming weeks, and five finales have ratcheted up anticipation for special reasons.
Example A: "The Good Wife." The season three finale will see Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) returning with one goal -- to bankrupt Lockhart Gardner, the law firm for which Julianna Margulies' character works. Clearly the guy means business -- he looks seriously sinister in the episode's promo photos. See it Sunday, April 29, on CBS.

It's been eight seasons since the TV's sauciest ladies moved into Wisteria Lane (and ushered in a whole new category of television: Hello, "Real Housewives" of wherever). "Desperate Housewives" ends its run this year, and the series finale may see the gals live happily ever after ... or get embroiled in some kind of drama that leads to their whole town burning down (crazier things have happened). Watch Sunday, May 13, on ABC.
This doctor drama has a reputation for insane season finales -- the season-six ender featured a gunman in the hospital who ended up shooting Derek Shepherd. The upcoming season-eight finale likely won't be quite as dramatic, though we may find out if Owen and Cristina's marriage is over. But Patrick Dempsey previously said that this season would be his last on the show. While a "Grey's" rep said otherwise, the contracts for many of the founding cast members are up, so this could be the last hurrah for the original Seattle Grace gang. Check it out Thursday, May 17, on ABC.
Three of the musical comedy's original characters will graduate high school during the season-three finale -- Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith. While executive producer Ryan Murphy has said he'll keep them in the show, it remains to be seen how New Directions will perform without its most famous voices. Catch what might be their last performance with the group Tuesday, May 22, on Fox.
This freshman drama was this season's juiciest newcomer. Emily Thorne has proven herself as a woman you don't want to mess with, and questions abound about what she'll do next. Will she stay with Daniel or run into the arms of her childhood love Jack? Who will she seek revenge on next? And could her father, the smeared businessman David Clarke, really be alive? Watch the drama unfold Wednesday, May 23, on ABC.
