UPDATED: Check out The Most Anticipated Horror Series of 2022!

It’s scary how good the upcoming horror TV shows and thriller series of 2021 were. From new additions to your favorite horror franchises to adaptations of popular thriller novels, the upcoming thriller and horror TV series promised to make the year delightfully terrifying. From streaming to network, which of the anticipated horror and thriller series were you most excited to see?

If you’re just here for the scares fear not, American Horror Stories is bringing one of the most popular horror TV shows to a more bite-size anthology series. Get your fix with stand-alone episodes instead of a terrifying tale that stretches over a season. If you like your thrills a bit more chilly, tense thriller series like Losing Alice and The Sister will keep you watching. And if all those scares weren’t worth a thing unless you’re laughing too, Chucky is finally coming to the small screen, in the newest addition to the franchise.

What new thrillers and upcoming horror series did you looked forward to the most in 2021? Vote up the TV shows you couldn't wait to watch.
