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

Thrillers have often done exactly as the name describes: they thrill viewers with shocking twists and frightening situations, but some thriller tv series manage to also creep viewers out. Whether you're talking about a thriller that's all about a psychological horror or a thriller television show that delves deep into horrific things that can only be described as nightmare fuel, there are tons of incredible shows to choose from!

An obvious thriller that can excite viewers while simultaneously creep them out is The Walking Dead and its companion series, Fear the Walking Dead. Both shows rely heavily on thrills, but the latest season of The Walking Dead, which finished up in the early parts of 2019, features a group known as the Whisperers who wear the skin of the dead to sneak about the world. If that's not creepy, nothing is! Other popular series airing in 2019 like Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House is easily one of the most creepily frightening shows on television. Whatever your interests in the thriller genre, there are plenty that can excite or frighten you while certainly creeping you out!

Which of these creepy thriller television shows freaks you out the most? Vote up your favorite and watch as the creepiest rises to the top!
