Are you into creepy crime TV shows and want to see what 2019 has to offer? These are the crime TV series you can look forward to in 2019, which are either new or continuing from a previous season.

When it comes to crime TV series, you don't have to dig too deep to get to the ones many people feel are creepy. Crime and a good creep-factor are what make these shows fun to watch, but sometimes, watching them might leave you to lock your doors and sleep with the lights on. Let's face it, many of these shows depict horrific crimes carried out by real and frightening people... who might just be on the other side of that door!

The creepiest television series revolving around crime often feature real-world killers and monsters who threaten our daily lives. Some of these series feature real people, while others are dramatic representations of the worst people and crimes imaginable. There are tons of series that could make it into a list like this one, but not every crime show qualifies as creepy. Blue Bloods features some of the best character actors on television, but the creep-factor isn't there like it is on series like True Detective, which offers up about as much creepiness as it does criminal detection. Whatever your preference, they all have a good amount of creepiness to keep you from wanting to venture out in the dark all by yourself.

Which of these creepy television shows from 2019 freaks you out the most? Vote up your favorites and watch as the creepiest shows rise to the top!
