Not everyone comes from one or lives in a small town, but TV shows about small towns permeate our networks. If you think about it, shows like The Simpsons are as much about a small town as they are about an average yellow American family. Because of our fascination with small towns and the strange and interesting people who live in them, small-town USA has been a major player in many of our favorite television series across the years.
The best thing about a good TV show featuring a small town is that it can be of any genre imaginable. Whether your interests stray towards horror/romance with shows like True Blood featuring vampires in a small town in Louisiana or you prefer the more grounded comedies like Parks and Recreation, there are plenty of amazing series to enjoy.
