List Rules Only new or returning anthology television series that are airing new episodes in 2019.

Sometimes you need to shake things up to keep it interesting. Anthology series know that for a fact, and the best anthology series airing new episodes in 2019 either have a new theme each season or new story each episode. As with limited series, the flexibility of streaming services - something even big cable channels are getting into - allows for non-linear storytelling and the creation of addictive vignettes you can divvy out into individual doses or binge all at once.

Many 2019 anthology shows follow the more traditional television anthology path of a science fiction-horror vibe that shocks or surprises you each episode. That's been Black Mirror's bread and butter for seasons and it's probably the same road the new Twilight Zone will walk as well. Other shows, like Star Trek: Short Treks, use each episode as a way to enjoy a vignette in a specific world. There are also shows that take a wider perspective and only change their themes and stories every season.

It can be hard to say good-bye to characters and cast members we love, but with anthology shows it's likely you'll see them again, just wearing a different mask. What television anthology series is airing new episodes in 2019 that you're excited about? Vote up the best anthology shows and add any we've forgotten - just remember, we need to be seeing new episodes and new stories from them in 2019.
