Best Spy TV Shows


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Archer Archer

Archer is the best

22 Get Smart

Far and away the funniest spy ever. I'm going to say this without the cone of silence: Get Smart is the Best!

One of those really great old T.V. shows that got screwed up when they tried to recreate it. - jessicaclaytor

23 The Americans

The most realistic spy series I have ever seen. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you for all the people taking part to entertaining us.

It should be a crime that this isn't higher on the list. Incredible realistic spycraft and amazing plot.

I can't believe FX's series "The Americans" is not on this list. It is so good.

Excellent series..thrilling, dramatic..well done!

24 Person of Interest

Love this show, can't stop obsessing over it. Love the growth every character goes through.

25 The Pretender
26 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
27 F/X: The Series
28 I Spy
29 The Night Manager The Night Manager The Night Manager is a British television serial adapted from John LeCarre's espionage novel of the same name. It premiered on BBC One and was directed by Susanne Bier and starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, David Harewood, Tom Hollander, and Elizabeth Debicki.

A mini series, but well developed, perfectly paced, and watching Tom Hiddleston channel his inner Bond is a treat.

Great show can't wait for next series

30 Human Target

Human Target has good actions and locations are also brilliant. I wish it gets re-instated

31 Dark Skies

This is what I call "REAL SPY T.V. SHOW". Dark Skies is absolute masterpiece with creative story, smart sci-fi moments and suspense - Alexandr

32 Secret Agent

Worth watching just on the strength of what may be the best rock-n-roll T.V. theme song ever "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers.

33 American Odyssey

Technically a captured/escaped soldier but she's very spy like..

Best Series of this Genre probably ever...


34 Level 9
35 The Wild Wild West
36 The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Not a T.V. show

38 Agent Carter Agent Carter Marvel's Agent Carter, or simply Agent Carter, is an American television series created for ABC by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, inspired by the film Captain America: The First Avenger, and the Marvel One-Shot short film of the same name.

Female intelligence agent post world war 2. Better than SHIELD in my opinion

39 Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1996)

Definitely one of the best spy shows ever. Unfortunately, they made only 13 episodes. Scott Bakula and Maria Bello played the main roles - Alexandr
