These are the best 2010s horror series ranked from best to worst by user votes. There are some great 2010s horror TV shows that are in the vein of "classic horror" featuring longstanding fan favorite monsters like vampires and zombies. But there are some other good 2010s horror shows that are a little more unpredictable, and a little less easily defined (like the cult classic, Hannibal, for example).

What shows are featured on this best 2010s horror TV shows list? Ryan Murphy took horror television to the next level with his limitless series American Horror Story. This good 2010s horror TV show changes themes and characters with each subsequent season. The Walking Dead is another great horror TV series that aired in the 2010s.

Twin Peaks was a favorite horror show of the 90s, so much so that it was resurrected for another run in the 2010s. Other good shows that appear on this top 2010s horror TV series list include The Vampire Diaries, Grimm and Teen Wolf.
