Be they silly, sexy or scary (or a fun mix of all three!), the undead have been compelling audiences for decades, so we’ve decided to take stock of the very best.
Before we dive in, here are a few quick disclaimers: For this list, we decided to limit ourselves to three vampires per TV show, lest we start playing favorites with any one franchise. We also decided to stick with live-action shows, so don’t expect to see any animated characters make an appearance.
Browse our ranking of the top TV vampires below, then drop a comment with your own favorites. Which would you add to our list?
