List Rules Shows near the top must be only the best Paranormal Romance TV series.

The very best paranormal romance shows on television, ranked from best to worst. This list of the greatest paranormal romance shows is spooky yet romantic. Popular paranormal romance TV shows have been a staple of television for years (not really), so there's often debate about what the most entertaining paranormal romance show of all time is (might not be true). Don't let your favorite sexy vampire television programs in history get to the bottom of the list- be sure to vote them up so they have the chance to reach the top spot. The list of ghost kissy-time television shows below includes information like the program's cast, creator, and how many ghoulies are in it. Just kidding. We'd never tell you how many ghoulies are in a show. That's a spoiler and everybody hates spoilers.

List features shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Blood, and many more

This list answers the questions, "What is the best paranormal romance show of all time?" and "What are the greatest paranormal romance shows?"
