Series of the year 2018 - Best series of 2018

This column supports the Series of the Year election 2018 and discusses the category Best series of 2018. Between Monday January 7th and Monday February 4th you can vote for your favourite series in this genre and others.

It's quite difficult, choosing the best series, because what one person thinks is great, the other person thinks is rubbish and vice versa.
And it doesn't matter which category. Tastes just differ and that's also the case with electing the best series of 2018; there will always be some people who don't agree with who wins and/or gets nominated.

What is one person's loss is another person's gain, because Game of Thrones is not a contender this year. Series like La Casa de Papel, Line of Duty and Peaky Blinders we will probably see again next year on this list. This year it was quite difficult, but you probably hear that every year.

So I won't waste too many more words on this, so see below for the alphabetical list of series of which the writers and you as viewers thought should belong in the top ten. This year we also asked MySeries members to nominate series. These nominations have also been considered for the final list. If you are not happy with this list, there is always the opportunity to make use of the wild card. So it will be your choice who wins.

The Americans

The final season of The Americans premiered on FX on 28 March 2018. The viewer could finally see how things would end for the Russian spies who impersonated Americans for years. Here you can read the reviews which have been written about this series.

Better Call Saul

Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin-off, gets only better and better with each season, according to many. The fourth season was broadcast from August until October 2018. In this season we saw James 'Jimmy' McGill becoming more and more his alter ego Saul Goodman. Here you can read the reviews written by our reviewers.


Bodyguard was according to many the surprise of 2018. The BBC One series is a thriller about David Budd, a war veteran who starts working as a Protection Officer for the Home Secretary Julia Montague. The series, which will probably get a second season, premiered on 29 August 2018. Here you can read the two reviews written about the first episode and the full first season of Bodyguard.

Outlander tells the story of Claire who, against her will, travels through time, from 1945 to 1743. The series has by now been renewed with a fifth and a sixth season. You can read herethe reviews of the first three seasons.

This Is Us

This Is Us, the third season of the NBC drama series about people who cross each other's paths and turn out to be connected in surprising ways, is on air now. The ratings remain high and so is its popularity on MySeries.


Westworld is the HBO sci-fi series of which the second season was a long time coming. But on 22 April 2018 it was finally here; the series based on the film of the same name from the 1970s finally started.
