TV Series With the Best Cast


The Top Ten

1 Breaking Bad Breaking Bad Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013.

With a plethora of incredible and diverse characters there's a dire need of an amazing cast, and the Breaking Bad team surely thought of it all. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

Amazing cast! Makes me want to watch this masterpiece again and again.

2 Sherlock

This really is a total purity

Intense, witty, and ingenious are the word I would use to describe Sherlock, but all of that comes from perfect acting from Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes), Martin Freeman (John Watson), Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes), and Andrew Scott (Jim Moriarty).

Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch (*dreamy sigh*), Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss, Rupert Graves, Una Stubbs, Louise Brealy, and Amanda Abbington are all perfect as their characters. No T.V. show has ever had a better cast.

Even if the entire cast was crap, there would always be the perfection that is Benedict Cumberbatch.

3 Battlestar Galactica Battlestar Galactica

The best cast in sci-fi! An epic, visually stunning and suspenseful show.

4 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead The Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard . Andrew Lincoln plays the show's lead character, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma discovering more.

It keeps getting better

5 American Horror Story American Horror Story

Moira O'Hare, why not?

6 True Detective True Detective True Detective is an American anthology crime drama television series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto.

The best I've seen of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, two heavy hitters and a really strong supportive cast. The cast plays a big part in the already amazing show.

7 Orange Is the New Black Orange Is the New Black

Totally the best cast!

Danielle Brooks, Uzo Abuda, Taylor Shilling, Taryn Manning, Kate Mulgrew, Selenis Levya, Yael Stone, Samira Wiley, Elizabeth Rodriguez... There's so much talent on this show.
Except for Ruby Rose. Ugh.

8 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.
