For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past. Over 1,000 of them got back to us with their picks for fall.

Feeling feisty? Rotten Tomatoes users are most excited about new fall shows that feature fighting in one form or another — guns, fisticuffs, maybe a trident. Hawkeye spin-off Echo took the top spot with 32 percent of the vote; unfortunately, the series has since been pushed to 2024, so we’ll have to wait. That means The Continental: From the World of John Wick is now tops for fall with 27 percent; Percy Jackson and the Olympians is in second with 25 percent; The Fall of the House of Usher — surely someone will get smacked or whacked in the horror series — had 24 percent; animated series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off had 21.4 percent, and limited series A Murder at the End of the World, starring Emma Corrin and Clive Owen, is now in fifth place with 21.3 percent.

There wasn’t a significant departure from the overall top 5 among survey respondents that self-identified as male (Scott Pilgrim was No. 3, Percy Jackson was No. 4, and The Fall of the House of Usher was 5). Among female survey respondents, however, A Murder at the End of the World took the top spot, followed by Percy Jackson, limited series All The Light We Cannot See, The Fall of the House of Usher, and the broadcast premiere of Yellowstone.

Read on to find out more about which shows the survey predicts will be hits this fall TV season.
