She’s back! Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is returning to Amazon for its second season on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Season 2 will see Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) dealing with the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon, making her climb up the comedy ladder even more challenging — especially since she’s still keeping her new career as a standup comedian a secret from her family.

2018 Spring-Summer TV Survey Results

We surveyed fans and asked which returning and premiering TV and streaming shows they were most looking forward to in spring and summer of 2018. The top TV series, according to 622 Rotten Tomatoes users (out of 1,023 total survey respondents), include HBO’s Westworld (returning for season 2), Amazon series premiere Jack Ryan, and, in the reality category, a reboot of American Idol.

Click through to find out which other series are tops in each category.


New Season Premieres

These returning series are premiering brand-spanking-new seasons in early 2018. (Please note: Netflix announced the premiere date of season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage after this survey was conducted.)

Top 20 out of 46 titles: 

Westworld: Season 2 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Westworld builds on its experimental first season, diving deeper into the human side of AI without losing any of its stylish, bloody glory.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While Jessica Jones is a slower burn with less focus than its inaugural season, its enticing new character arc more fully details the most charismatic Defender.

Roseanne: Season 10 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Roseanne's return finds the show's classic format, original cast, and timely humor intact, even if the latest batch of episodes suffers from sporadically uneven execution.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Beautifully shot but dishearteningly relevant, The Handmaid's Tale centers its sophomore season tightly around its compelling cast of characters, making room for broader social commentary through more intimate lenses.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Well-crafted and compelling as ever, Better Call Saul's fourth season deftly balances the show it was and the one it will inevitably become.

Legion: Season 2 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Legion returns with a smart, strange second season that settles into a straighter narrative without sacrificing its unique sensibilities.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Americans' powerful final season pumps up the volume on an already intense show, concluding the complex series arc with epic familial conflict... and a high body count.

Timeless: Season 2 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Having firmly established its affable ensemble, Timeless has more time to play with its high concept in a rousing sophomore season that will leave viewers giddy with adventure.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events is as gothic, twisted and absurd as the first, to the delight of moody tweens of all ages.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Donald Glover continues to subvert expectations with a sophomore season of Atlanta that proves as excellent as it is eccentric.

Elementary: Season 6 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The complex relationship between Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes remains the heart of Elementary, with Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller delivering solid performances each episode.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Fear the Walking Dead shuffles onward confidently in its fourth season with a bevy of horrifying set-pieces and heartbreaking twists, but some viewers may be dispirited by the series' constant reshuffling of its characters.

New Girl: Season 7 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: After seven years of friendship, New Girl signs off with a thoughtful, funny final season that bids a proper adieu to its colorful cast of characters.

The Expanse: Season 3 (2018)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Building on earlier potential and extending character arcs throughout a solidly crafted third season, The Expanse continues to impress -- and shows no signs of abating.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Santa Clarita Diet rides the momentum of its freshman season with non-stop comedic gore and a big heart that bleeds -- profusely -- for its lovable characters.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt ends with a final season that's as topical as it is cheerily irreverent.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

Adjusted Score: -1%
