Summer is officially here, which means the primary television season has come to a close.

To celebrate another year of awesome, nerdy, super television, AP2HYC is hosting our third annual TV Awards! After months spent reviewing and recapping your (and our!) favorite shows, the AP2HYC writers have selected the best of the best to compete for victory in the 2017 TV Awards. Be sure to cast your votes in each category, and check back to find out which of your favorite shows, characters, and crews will come out on top!

As well as returning favourites, this season provided us with some exciting new prospects. Spin-offs, expanded universes, and some brand new properties made sure our eyes remained suitably square and our minds nicely blown.



Created by author Patrick Ness, this Doctor Who spin-off followed the trials and tribulations of the sixth-formers at the Coal Hill Academy.

Emerald City 


NBC’s dark alternate telling of The Wizard of Oz saw Dorothy Gale as a young nurse who is transported to a strange land after finding a crime scene at her mother’s trailer.

Iron Fist


One of the new additions to the small-screen Marvel universe, Netflix’s Iron Fist met with mixed reviews on arrival.



FX’s mind-bending new show was a stylish and original take on the superhero trope, with a strong aesthetic and an hallucinatory vibe unlike any of its counterparts.

Luke Cage


This gritty, action-packed superhero show proved to be a popular addition to the Marvel TV stable, with Jessica Jones’ bulletproof ex reluctantly protecting Harlem, and making a powerful statement in a time when the Black Lives Matter hashtag is sadly more necessary than ever.



A comedy series which played in the DC sandbox saw ex-Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens as Research and Development Director for a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises.



Based on the comics by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, this bloody, surreal thrill ride saw Dominic Cooper‘s man of the cloth possessed by something distinctly unholy.



Loosely based on the 1973 film of the same name, this HBO drama saw the android inhabitants of a huge amusement park slowly gain sentience with disastrous results.
