UPDATED: Check out The Best New Sci-fi TV Shows of 2020!

The best sci-fi shows of 2019 have a lot to live up to. The previous year's selection of science fiction series set new standards of innovation and awe, but the great sci-fi series released in '19 are ready to live up to them. From horror to action to superheroes and drama, the newest sci-fi on TV is ready to rock your world and the worlds beyond.

Aliens and Area 51 may be one of the most classic sci-fi concepts and it's got a new spin with the drama Roswell, New Mexico. If you like your science fiction as speculative setup, the mysterious cause that created the superhero characters of The Umbrella Academy may be more your speed. The new sci-fi shows of 2019 also include action shows like Halo and speculative horror with NOS4A2, as well as some of the most exciting sci-fi shows in 2019.

Vote up your favorite 2019 sci-fi shows from the list below, and vote down those that just didn't work for you. You can also add any new shows that may have not made the list. Then check out what new sci-fi series are airing in 2020.
