The SpoilerTV Favourite TV Series Competition 2019 - Winner and Final Words

And so, another year of the Series Competition comes to an end. We've now had ten of these things and it continues to be an absolute blast of a competition. But forget that for a second — let's crown our winner...

Yes, that's right. Shadowhunters, in the competition this year as a finished show for the first time, triumphed over last year's winner Lucifer. It was, really, the final that most people had assumed would transpire once the draw was made, but I imagine far fewer would have expected the former Freeform series to win out in this clash. As it was, Shadowhunters was ahead for much of the 48 hours of the final, but in the repeat of the 2018 Character Cup, it came out on top this time.

Here's the full updated listing. We're now at 191 shows that have taken part in a decade! We will surely hit 200 next year. Of the list, 13 were debutants this time around — one more than last year. Click here to view the 1-64 rankings for this year's contenders.

Once again, another great competition. All of our winners prior to Lucifer had crashed out by the end of the third round, making this one of the most open competitions we've ever had. In the case of Supernatural, that was a first round exit for the first time ever and really set the tone for the rest of the competition. As always, the engagement of the fans was important to make the summer TV go much more quickly.

A few thanks to give out. Firstly to DarkUFO, whose technical assistance is always useful to me and who obviously enables the competition to exist by virtue of running the site. Also thanks to Laura for organising the 2019 rankings spreadsheet, a task which is ever-so essential but which has previously been ever-so forgettable to me until hours after the final ends in previous years.

But thank you, most importantly, to you, the fans and visitors to SpoilerTV. Without your engagement, this competition would just be me rambling on about a bunch of random nonsense about performances in previous years, cracking the odd shocking pun, and an empty column in the poll votes. Your involvement is what makes this competition exist, so thank you to everyone who voted — whether that was in every poll, just one, or something in between.

As previously mentioned, we've come to the end of the summer TV, which means fall TV is set to start once again on Monday. Prepare your DVRs and/or catch-up services. The onslaught is about to begin.

You can, as always, keep up to date with all of your favourite shows right here at SpoilerTV, with news, videos, images, reviews, polls all available through each show's individual page. We've got some regular features around here too, like Scene of the Week, Quote of the Week, Performers of the Month, and Throwback Thursday. And there's lots more to find around here, so if you're new, take a look around. You might like what you find.

Congratulations once again to Shadowhunters. It has never finished outside the top four in three appearances, and was rewarded here with the title. What will happen next year? Will it still be strong enough to retain the crown? Only time will tell.

For now, though, it is our champion.

Until next year, namaste...

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
