Get ready to stick it to authority as we rank the greatest rebels in TV history. Believe it or not, rebels have been on television since the dawn of the medium. Whether they’re bad boys, anti-authoritarians, scorned heroes, women who buck the patriarchy, or even school teachers who take matters into their own hands, there’s usually at least one rebel in every group.

While most of these characters come from different backgrounds, the one thing they have in common is that they are all strong-willed and dynamic characters who will stop at nothing for what they think is right. From Walter White in Breaking Bad to Ruth Wilder in GLOW, these characters are known for sticking up for their principles - regardless of whether they’re right or wrong.
