List RulesVote up your favorite fantasy TV Shows that aired in the 2010s - no sci-fi

These are the best 2010s fantasy TV series, ranked from best to worst by user votes. Some of the best 2010s fantasy TV shows take place in space, or completely made up worlds, while others integrate supernatural elements into their more down-to-earth storylines. Some of the greatest 2010s fantasy TV series even feature characters with super powers, and superheroes.

What shows will you find on this best 2010s fantasy TV series list? Game of Thrones took fantasy TV to the next level when it premiered in 2011 and made even the most skeptical TV watcher a fan of 'sword and sandals' fantasy. Since then there have been countless shows that have tried to snatch the crown from Thrones, as series like Westworld and His Dark Materials have emerged on HBO to try to fill a dragon-sized void in viewers TV screens.

Meanwhile, Grimm showed viewers a new version of classic fairy tales during the 2010s, while Once Upon a Time did the same - the difference being Once had access to the entire Disney library to play around with. But whether you're into fairy tales, dragons, or superheros, the 10s had no shortage of fantasy series to satisfy your craving, and some of them are only just getting started and are sure to thrill us all well into the 2020s. 

Which 2010s fantasy series is your favorite? Vote the best shows up to the top of this list and make your fantasy come true.
