Greatest TV Vampires, ranked 22 favorites from TVD, True Blood, Buffy, Angel, Shadowhunters, and extra
Halloween may be over, but let’s face it – vampires have become kind of a thing on television all year round.
Whether silly, sexy or creepy (or a funny mix of all three!), The Undead have been convincing audiences for decades. So we decided to take stock of the best – from shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Shadowhunters, What We Do In The Shadows, and more.
Our list includes two pairs of vampire brothers, two icons who debuted in black and white, an actress whose undead earned her the Golden Globe Award, and a muppet. (Though each muppet is technically immortal, only one haunts the streets of Sesame in the light of the moon, hungry for the victims … um … count?)
And here’s another fun fact: only two of the shows mentioned on this list are still broadcasting new episodes.
Before we dive in, here are a few quick disclaimers: For this list, we’ve chosen to limit ourselves to three vampires per TV show so we don’t play favorites with a franchise. We also decided to stick with live action shows. So don’t expect animated characters to show up.
