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.
