Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #4

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced a large number of impressive new television series. As 2015 closes out and 2016 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#4: iZombie

Who would have thought that there was still room for a zombie show that feels fresh, no less a comedy on the CW? This show, which is already halfway through its second season after a strong debut earlier this year, is easily one of the most consistently entertaining shows currently on the air, using the established trope of zombies craving brains to help its main character solve murders while also getting the added side effect of inheriting the personality traits of the deceased, which is hilarious more often than not. This show also manages to achieve dramatic success on a regular basis, and balances between its lighter and more serious moments exceptionally well.

Best Episode: “Zombie Bro” (though it’s hard to choose!)
