Best TV Shows of 2024 So Far

Reimagined thrillers, rebooted franchises, long-awaited comebacks, and some originals that are so unique they're almost impossible to describe – these are the series that have kept us glued to the small screen so far this year

Is originality considered overrated?

Of the 15 entries on our list of the best shows of the year so far — arranged alphabetically — four are based on books, several of which have already been turned into movies or TV shows. One is adapted from a stage play. Another takes its title and some plot points from a mid-2000s blockbuster movie. And two are new entries in long-running franchises (one dates back to 1963!) that often start with new lead actors.

Of course, there are series on this list that are wildly original in almost every sense. But a look back at the best series of the last six months will remind you that being new is far from a prerequisite for being great.
