10 Sci-Fi TV Shows We'll Be Glued To This Year

With so much science-fiction coming this year, fans are spoiled for choice.

It's safe to say that science-fiction TV has gone through a bit of a renaissance in the past decade or so, finally moving on from the monster-of-the-week adventures where everything has to be back to the status quo by the end of the episode.

Shows these days respect their viewers enough to keep up not only with increasingly complex storylines and characters who don't always act in logical ways, but also with understanding the technology they're showing. They do this without stopping every few minutes to launch into some exposition about why technology X works and how it makes technology Y possible.

With the viewers trusted to make these leaps themselves, there's more room for story and characterization in the shows we watch. There's also more room for experimentation. Those series built for streaming services are free to change their lengths to fit the story as well, rather than being built around a certain amount of time to show adverts, and the format has widened to include documentaries, sitcoms, and dramatic serials alike.

Fans have never been so spoiled for choice, and these ten shows are only a few of the ones we're looking forward to this year.
