Question What's a TV show that fell from grace but then redeemed itself?

Usually after a show has a bad season the ones after aren't much better. Are there any shows that you'd say undeniably got better after getting worse?

the office had a really bad 8th season but came back with a pretty strong 9th and final deason

Big Bang Theory cratered in Season 8, but recovered with a couple competent, somewhat different seasons.

Frasier's 8th and 9th seasons were underwhelming if compared to the others, season 10 was good overall but had just one 5-star rating episode... but then season 11 was the perfect conclusion!

Grey's Anatomy had a notoriously awful seasons four and five, but really returned to top form shortly after that and has been going strong ever since.

Designing Women's sixth season was clearly a big misstep creatively but they found their footing again in their seventh and final season. Judith Ivey was a great addition to the show.
