List RulesVote up the best animated series and cartoons that premiered their first season on or after January 1, 2018.

With so many great TV series currently airing, we’re ranking the best animated TV shows since 2018. Our list of the highest-rated animated shows of the past three years is ranked by viewers from everywhere, so make sure you vote up the best new animated series on television. What is the best new animated TV show? 

Featuring new kids shows, animated superhero shows, adult cartoons, and more, the best recent animated TV shows include Disenchantment, Final Space, Love, Death, and Robots, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. While Cartoon Network's Infinity Train is a great animated show for the whole family, DC Universe's original series Harley Quinn should probably be watched without the kids.

Vote up the best new animated TV shows that have premiered recently.
