List Rules Any new or returning shows that aired during the 2019 calendar year and feature a primarily female cast.

We currently live in the Golden Age of Television. Part of what makes TV great today is diversification, and that's apparent from these all women-led TV series in 2019. Which of these current female TV shows intrigue you the most?

Most of these top current television shows with female leads do have some male cast members. However, all of the casts are at least two-thirds female and all are airing new episodes in 2019. Among the best female TV shows include a few old favorites like Mom, Grace and Frankie, and Broad City.

There are several new shows with mostly female casts to look forward to as well. Kate Beckinsale is starring in her first TV series in 2019 called The Widow. Also, Natasha Lyonne returns to Netflix in her first small screen starring role in the comedy Russian Doll.
