Keyart for The Handmaid's Tale, Troy: Fall of a City, Westworld, The Terror, Lost in Space, Killing Eve, Cobra Kai (Hulu; Netflix; HBO; AMC; Netflix; BBC America; YouTube Red)

Returning favorites like Westworld and The Handmaid’s Tale are among the top performers in our spring TV scorecard, but the big news is the surprising new series that dominate the top 5.  Click on to learn more about those cheeky upstarts as we rank new and returning series and films on TV or streaming that premiere from mid-March through August by Tomatometer.

Seasons and films must have at least 10 reviews to be included. Certified Fresh scores indicate that the title has gotten a Fresh rating by more than 20 reviewers for series and more than 40 reviewers for TV or streaming films; in each case, at least five reviews must be from “Top Reviewers” to be Certified Fresh.

The final ranking reflects an adjusted score calculated based on the number of reviews a series has; for example, if one title has 10 reviews and a 100% score, while another has 45 reviews and a 99% score, the second title ranks higher because of the larger pool of critics’ opinions used to form the score.

(See the top performers in the final ranking of our Winter TV Scorecard, including Atlanta, Counterpart, The End of the F***ing WorldThe Good Place, and High Maintenance.)
