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.

We ranked new and returning series and films on TV and streaming from January 1 through mid-March by Tomatometer (seasons and films must have had at least 10 reviews to be included).

The final ranking reflects an adjusted score calculated based on the number of reviews a series has; for instance, 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 final results of the winter TV season:

9JKL: Season 1 (2017)
19%

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Irritatingly uninspired, 9jkl leaves its talented cast out in the cold.

#93

Mute (2017)
21%

#93
Adjusted Score: 25380%
Critics Consensus: Visually polished but narratively derivative and overall muddled, Mute is a would-be sci-fi epic whose title serves as an unfortunate guide to how it might be best enjoyed.
Synopsis: In a Berlin of the future, a mute bartender's search for his missing lady-love takes him deeper and deeper into... [More]
Directed By: Duncan Jones

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Living Biblically commits the cardinal TV sin of wasting the outline of an refreshingly unusual premise on broad, hammy acting and stock sitcom laughs.

#91

The Outsider (2018)
17%

#91
Adjusted Score: 16542%
Critics Consensus: Starring a disengaged Jared Leto and stuffed with gangster cliches, The Outsider never distinguishes itself enough to gain admittance into the inner circle of good yakuza pictures.
Synopsis: After World War II, an American POW stays in Japan and works his way through the rituals and hardships of... [More]
Directed By: Martin Zandvliet

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
21%

#90
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Valor's attempt to highlight an often overlooked segment of the armed services is undercut by a badly judged blend of military action and melodrama.

#89
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bland and uneven, Disjointed does more smoke-blowing than joke-telling -- though it's further proof that Betsy Sodaro is a comedian to watch.

#88
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With only a mildly interesting premise, Mind Games leaves viewers with few reasons to continue playing.

#87
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Here and Now clearly has a point it wants to make, but a nebulous plot and unfocused character development stand in the way of its potential.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Wisdom of the Crowd wastes a talented cast on a formulaic procedural crime drama that wavers between modest returns and unintentional laughs.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Sugar-coated satire, Our Cartoon President wavers between scathing social criticism and softball slings in a way that's as unsatisfying as it is uncomfortable.
Directed By: Tim Luecke

#84
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Life Sentence avoids asking tough questions about serious issues, settling instead for a cloying sweetness.

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#83
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

#82
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Esther Povistky and Benji Alflalo's awkward charms and convincingly platonic chemistry work, though Alone Together's lack of urgency keeps its nihilistic tenderness from truly jelling.

Absentia: Season 1 (2017)
50%

#81
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Absentia sticks too closely to the procedural handbook, leaving its capable lead and mildly intriguing mystery treading water.
Directed By: Oded Ruskin

S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (2017)
48%

#80
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a commanding, charming performance from Shemar Moore, S.W.A.T. remains a simple procedural overrun with clichés.

Hard Sun: Season 1 (2018)
48%

#79
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Hard Sun's heady mix of narrative and visual flourishes buckle under a surfeit of clichés that ultimately weigh it down and leave the show a muddled mess.

#78
Adjusted Score: 87257%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
Synopsis: ... [More]
Starring: David Bowie
Directed By: Francis Whately

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#77
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

#76
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Refreshingly lewd humor and funny, relatable characters are crammed into LA to Vegas alongside pacing problems and a dearth of punchlines, leaving this sitcom's high-flying potential stuck in an amiable holding pattern.

Instinct: Season 1 (2018)
54%

#75
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Instinct is ultimately an underwhelming police procedural, despite having Alan Cumming in its arsenal.

#74
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Final Space doesn't always hit its mark, but for those looking for a bite-sized intergalactic comedy it may prove an amusing diversion.

#73

The Polka King (2017)
66%

#73
Adjusted Score: 66249%
Critics Consensus: Despite moments of hilarity and a talented ensemble, discordant direction and a sloppy script keep The Polka King from truly singing.
Synopsis: The rise and fall of Pennsylvania polka sensation Jan Lewan, who ultimately fleeced millions from investors through his polka-related activities.... [More]

#72
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With sporadic amusement and a handful of decent performances, The Resident​ drifts between medical melodrama and hospital horror with often unintentionally funny results.

Rise: Season 1 (2018)
59%

#71
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Rise's admirable aim to inspire audiences with a grounded depiction of high school theater is undercut by stock characters and an off-putting presumption that it is more moving than it ever manages to be.

#70
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Good Doctor's heavy-handed bedside manner undermines a solid lead performance, but under all the emotionally manipulative gimmickry, there's still plenty of room to improve.

Series Returning Midseason

These series, chosen by Rotten Tomatoes users, debuted their current seasons in the fall and are returning early in the new year to continue their runs.

Top 10 out of 40 titles: 

#11%
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Walking Dead's eighth season energizes its characters with some much-needed angst and action, though it's still occasionally choppy and lacking forward-moving plot progression.

#10%
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: This is Us continues to tug at heartstrings with an emotional exploration of family that ensures viewers will want to keep the tissues close -- and their loved ones closer.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. swings for the fences with large-scale storytelling and wild twists that elevate season 5 from the saturated MCU and into its own space.

#5%
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: By voluntarily blowing up its premise, The Good Place sets up a second season that proves even funnier than its first.
Directed By: David Miner

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Although it takes an episode to achieve liftoff, Star Trek: Discovery delivers a solid franchise installment for the next generation -- boldly led by the charismatic Sonequa Martin-Green.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Brooklyn Nine-Nine's final year with Fox pops with such joyous affection that it could have been a satisfying closer for the series, but the ensemble's unflappable chemistry continues to gel so well that viewers will be glad that these cops will live to fight crime again.

The Flash: Season 4 (2018)
80%

#4%
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: After an unsteady turn in season three, The Flash returns to its roots with a fourth season packed with humor, spectacle, and a whole lot of heart.
