12 Supernatural Teen Dramas by Tomatometer

Ever since the first Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! villain shook his fist at the gang and exclaimed, “I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids,” TV has tried to recreate the magical, mystical drama of that beloved animated series (though Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby actually debunked a lot of its otherworldly activity). Here are the Tomatometer scores of a few teen dramas featuring kids with superhuman abilities, ghosts, vampires, aliens, and other spine-tingling chills that have tried.

The list tracks series with at least 20 reviews, and some supernatural teen dramas — like Beyond, ClassRoswell, Ravenswood, and more — didn’t have enough eligible reviews to be included.
