UPDATED: Check out the Best New Animated Series of 2020!
It's 2019 and we're well beyond "cartoons aren't just for kids anymore." There are dozens of new and returning animated series that fall into every genre, offering animation for all. This list looks at the best current animated television series that that will be airing new episodes in 2019. Which are the best new and returning action shows in 2019?
Sure, some of the best animated shows airing in 2019 are ostensibly for kids, such as Steven Universe and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. But that doesn't mean they're not as fun to watch for adults. There are animated sitcoms, like Bob's Burgers or The Simpsons and even animated action series such as Castlevania and Archer. Two of the longest-running animated series are at opposite ends of the audience spectrum - both Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants are some of the best shows for adults and kids, respectively.
