The Best TV Shows of 2019 (So Far)

Too. Much. TV. That’s it—that’s the mantra. That said, there’s been a lot of great television hitting screens in 2019, on an array of networks. From massive-budget, epically drawn-out endings to iconic series to smaller, more personal takes on real life, there’s something for everyone out there.

2019 saw the swan songs of You’re the Worst and Game of Thrones; series we swore would be one-and-done, like Big Little Lies, Barry and Killing Eve, returning for improbable second seasons; as well as a number of shows that you might not even be aware of but should be adding to your queues and taking time out of your day to revel in.

From the series that make you laugh, cry, or scream at the television to the most expertly crafted tales on the small screen, here are the best TV shows of 2019 (so far).
