List Rules Vote up your favorite shows that feature magic, fantasy, or paranormal subjects that are currently airing new episodes on TV or a streaming service.

Supernatural TV series are at a disadvantage from the word "go." A good TV show already requires a great cast, brilliant writing, and near-perfect pacing. A good supernatural show requires all of the above plus a budget worthy of its source material and the time to find its audience.

Fortunately, we're living in a boom of fantastic supernatural television shows! CGI is getting cheaper, more networks means more opportunities for shows and best of all, there's a market for them. Thanks to this new golden era of TV we have lots of fantastic hour-long TV programs, many of which have Game of Thrones to thank for encouraging their success and the success of the fantasy and supernatural television genres! Never have supernatural series fans had so much quality content to watch.

This list ranks the best current supernatural shows. Vote up the supernatural TV shows you think are the greatest and add any that aren't already listed so other fans of my mystical and magical can vote for them as well.
