Extraterrestrials continue to captivate the public and the best current alien shows on television range in terms of tone, style, and genre. Some of the best new alien series are dramatic series about alien attacks while other good current shows about extraterrestrials are lighthearted shows set in outer space. Some fan-favorite alien TV shows airing now are reboots of classic series and even cartoon shows deal with aliens. 

What will you find on this list of the best current alien TV shows? Doctor Who is a long-running show about a TARDIS traveling Time Lord combating alien foes, and although the Doctor looks like a regular (if fashionable) human, Time Lords are still an ancient race of extraterrestrial people. Another alien among us is in Roswell, New Mexico, the latest version of the drama series based on the YA novels. Other good current shows featuring aliens include Star Trek: Picard, The Orville, and Resident Alien.
