91 TV Seasons Certified Fresh at 100%

Debate over TV’s best shows will rage eternal, but what we’ve found here at Rotten Tomatoes is that not every season of those “best” series are created equal — have a look at 13 Reasons Why, which had the biggest sophomore slump between its first and second season Tomatometer scores, for example, or Marvel’s Iron Fist (R.I.P.), which had the biggest sophomore bump, jumping over 30%.

Some of the best series of all time ran long enough to see their season scores land all over the map, so we decided to collect the best of the best and rounded up the seasons with perfect 100% Tomatometer scores. They are listed below alphabetically by TV title.

Some you know: The first season of HBO’s The Sopranos (1999) introduced a New Jersey mobster — sorry, waste management executive — facing an existential crisis after an anxiety attack. TV scholars credit that series with being one of the pioneering shows of today’s Peak TV age, along with introducing the now-ubiquitous male antihero — see also: Breaking Bad‘s Walter White, Mad Men‘s Don Draper, and Sons of Anarchy‘s Jax Teller — to the Peak TV vocabulary.

Others may come as a surprise, like the stellar performance of Master of None, about an Indian-American man living and dating in New York City, that debuted on Netflix in 2015. The series tackles creator Aziz Ansari’s experience as a first-generation American and millennial trying to find love. Season 1 got its perfect score from the collective opinions of 64 critics, putting it essentially ahead of many other other 100% seasons — the more critics’ opinions weighed, the more valuable that perfect score is.

Master of None is also in a select group of shows that have more than one season on the list: The series’ second season is also in the 100% club; both of Big Mouth‘s, Counterpart‘s, and Happy Valley‘s two seasons are on the list; Amazon Prime Video’s Catastrophe, FX’s Justified, and Comedy Central’s Broad City scored three spots; and Breaking Bad and The Good Wife each have four seasons on our shortlist. Other recent series with multiple seasons in the 100% club: The Good Place, Crazy Ex-GirlfriendOne Day at a Time, Veep, and the latest multiple-season addition, Fleabag, which returns to Amazon Prime Video on May 17.

Lastly, while several seasons might have enough reviews to be included on this list (for example, the first season of Babylon Berlin and season 5 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), they don’t meet all of the Certified Fresh eligibility requirements — yet. We’ll keep watching them.

Updated 4/19: Fleabag season 2, A Discovery of Witches season 1, Broad City season 5, Veep season 7, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 4, and Better Things season 3 were all added, along with a few vintage titles (Prime Suspect season 7, the 1976 I, Claudius miniseries). A negative review for The Magicians season 4 dropped it from the list.
