Whether they're a chosen family or a traditional one, what makes families great is at the heart of good adventure TV series about family. This is a list of the greatest TV adventure shows about families including everything from Gravity Falls to A Series of Unfortunate Events.
What acclaimed dramas and side-splitting comedies will you find on this list of the best adventure shows about families? Both the original and the 2018 versions of Lost In Space are practically the definition of family adventure shows - and are adaptations of one of the oldest family adventure tales, The Swiss Family Robinson.
