The Defining TV Shows of the 2010s, According to the ‘Closer Weekly’ Staff

We certainly saw a boom for TV shows in the 2010s — especially with the rise of streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon’s Prime Video just to name a few. This, plus all the offerings on broadcast and cable (both regular and premium), means we are never without anything to watch. The best part? A lot of the series that aired during the 2010s were incredible!

Some of the TV shows that reigned supreme in the past decade were there before it started and some are still going as it comes to an end. As we are looking back at some of our favorite pop culture offerings, we here at Closer Weekly decided it would be fun to create a list of our favorite series from the 2010s as we look forward to 2020 and all that there is to come on the small screen.

Scroll down below to see which TV shows the Closer Weekly staff chose as the series that defined the last 10 years.
