Best-Reviewed TV Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror 2016

Superheroes ruled 2016 in this category, but the inclusion of a nostalgic throwback, a conspiracy thriller, and a tried-and-true fantastical drama reveals that there’s something excellent for everyone here.

The order of the list reflects the scores as of December 31, 2016, but the number displayed on the Adjusted Tomatometer may change as more reviews keep getting added after the end of the year.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Orphan Black makes a 180-degree return to its roots with an experimental fourth season that delves deeper into the show's strange, innovative premise.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bloody and captivating as always, Game of Thrones plunges back into the midst of a world touched by grief, dread, and precarious sexuality.
