The year is coming to an end soon and this year had so many television shows that were great to watch. I’ve compiled a list of shows I watched this year that featured some of my favorite actors, actresses as well as reality television stars. Let’s see if your show made my top 10 list.

Game Of Thrones” returned with so much drama, action and answered a lot of questions we have always wondered about. To avoid spoilers just in case you didn’t watch this season I will just say that I never want to encounter a “White Walker.” The next show I want to give some props to is “Big Little Lies.” It was a HBO series that was only supposed to be limited to one season, but these badass ladies including Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz and Reese Witherspoon, will return another one because there is so much more story to tell. Netflix had some amazing shows this year, which include the hit show “Orange Is The New Black,” “Stranger Things,” “She’s Gotta Have It” and “Ozark.” All these kept my attention, but I didn’t appreciate some spoilers from some Twitter users, however I’m excited for them to return next year.

The hit show “This Is Us” came back for a second season and once again left everyone in tears, but I’ll just stock up on Kleenex. Sterling K. Brown and the rest of the cast make us fall in love with them as each episode airs.  Issa Rae gave us a dynamic second season of “Insecure” and made me as well as others watching like they weren’t alone in certain love affairs. “The Handmaid’s Tale” was filled with amazing acting and the storyline for some was unreal because it could possibly happen in real life.

Moving on to a little reality television, “Project Runway” came back for season 16 and I must say it was my favorite so far. They not only had amazing designers, but models of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds. This list was very hard to only list ten of my favorite shows this year because the writing, programming and everything has truly changed for the better. I can’t wait for next year and be on the look out for my television guide for 2018 shows!
