List Rules Only horror television series airing new episodes during the 2019 calendar year that favor blood-pumping excitement over slow creeping horror.

The most frightening horror TV shows new or ongoing in 2019 are some of the most delightfully terrifying and supremely scary to watch on television, but which is the most exciting new or returning show? Determining which horror television series is the best isn't an easy task given the plethora of options available, but this list might make it just a bit easier. These days, with the use of digital streaming via multiple options such as Netflix, Hulu, and others, there is a ton of content available but which of these current horror shows are the best of them all in terms of excitement?

For a horror series to be truly exciting, it has to be the kind that scares you in such a way that you think twice about turning off the lights and you find yourself watching the action from the edge of your seat. The only way to find out which is the best is to vote up your favorite horror series below, but remember, this list is all about excitement! Which new horror series available in 2019 is more exciting than the one below it? For this list, the series either has to be new to 2019 programming, or it has to be a pre-existing series with new episodes premiering in 2019. Sadly, The Haunting of Hill House won't return until 2020 or it would be sitting at #1!

Don't forget to add your favorite new horror series to the list if it's missing and vote for your favorites below!
