Synopsis: Reality game show that sees ten contestants trying to survive in a simulated zombie apocalypse.... Netflix's new zombie apocalypse series, the “Z-Nation” prequel “Black Summer,” is premiering Thursday, and what better way to welcome it than to rank other “undead” TV shows of the last few years from worst to best.
Though arguably not as popular as the original, the drama series has been going steady since 2015 and its fifth season will premiere on June 2. Fans say it gives a brain and a heart to zombie drama, as it's less about blood and gore, and more about examining the stereotypes and knee-jerk reactions that lead Karen’s hometown to discriminate against him.

This apocalyptic drama which aired back in 2006, was based on the story of a group of people in a little town in Kansas called Jericho as they struggle to survive the affects of nuclear fallout in several major cities around the U.S.
Jericho was suddenly canceled after the first season and was met with a barrage of complaints to CBS from the shows loyal fans. After launching a grassroots internet mega-campaign to revive the show CBS agreed to bring it back for one more season and at least wrap up some unanswered questions.
In a world where civilization has been incapacitated by alien attack, we follow the story of a group of rag-tag survivors in the Boston area. The odds are steep and survival is difficult when every day is spent protecting and caring for the people, while also waging an insurgency campaign against an occupying alien force.
Survivors is a British post-apocalyptic fiction drama that follows a similar premise as a lot of the other survival shows ; the pandemic wipes out most of the population, society breaks down, people try to figure it all out. Jobs in the medical and forensic field have always held a certain level of fascination, especially with the rising interest in crime and fictional, procedural law enforcement shows like the CSI franchise and Criminal Minds, or true crime rockeries’ like The Keepers or Exhibit A.
So, if talk of crime scenes, pathology, and forensics is something that piques your interest, and these kinds of TV shows are right up your alley, then this is the right place for you! Coroners are those who confirm the identity of people found dead, and they are also the ones with the power to investigate or inquire as to the person’s cause of death.
Canadian television network CBC premiered Coroner in January 2019, to positive reviews and over 1 million views per episode. She’s great at her job but also needs to deal with her own clinical anxiety as well as her relationship with her teenage son and a potential new romance.
She has no choice but to work with Detective Sergeant Davey Higgins to investigate unnatural deaths in their area. This shouldn’t be a problem, except that they have unresolved issues from their previous romantic relationship that left her heartbroken.
In this TNT series, we meet Boston police detective Jane Rizzo and Massachusetts’ chief medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles. In order to make sure the science was as factual and realistic as possible, the show’s producers ensured the constant presence of technical advisers on set while filming.
Body of Proof features another strong female lead in Dr. Megan Hunt, a former neurosurgeon who accidentally killed a patient on her operating table. Not to be confused with Amazon Video’s 2018 comedy series of the same name, Forever was ABC’s next attempt at a crime drama with a medical examiner in the lead role, albeit with a fascinating mix of the fantasy genre.
The main character, Dr. Henry Morgan, is a medical examiner in New York City who works closely with the NYPD to solve crimes, though he also has an ulterior motive. That’s right, Dr. Morgan is a 200-year-old immortal who immediately disappears upon “death” and the reappears in a nearby body of water.
The show was inspired by a book written by a former FBI agent, while the main character of Quincy is loosely based on Dr. Thomas Touch, the “Coroner to the Stars” who investigated high-profile Hollywood cases in the 60s and 70s. With the help of his lab assistant Sam Fujiyama, and occasional cooperation from his boss Dr. Robert Aston and LAPD Homicide Lieutenant Frank Monacan, Quince works to investigate suspicious deaths in the county.
Not wanting to kill innocent humans, she decides to work for the King County medical examiner’s office, so she has easy access to the brains. When she consumes them, however, she’s able to temporarily gain their personality and memories, so she uses this advantage to help the Seattle Police solve their murders.
Forensic pathologists, strictly speaking, are a more specific type of medical examiner due to its inherent connection to the legal field. Harrow is the first Australian crime drama series on our list, and it premiered in 2018 on the country’s national public television network, ABC.
He and his fellow pathologists at the IFM assist various branches of local law enforcement agencies, though he doesn’t always get along with them due to his disregard for the rules and authority in general. Show runners had actually marketed the season six finale as a cliffhanger, but the network suddenly announced that they had no plans to renew the show.
Because of this, she developed trust issues and an irritable temperament that sometimes makes her difficult to work with, but it also gives her the drive to solve the crimes that end up on her table. Where to watch Crossing Jordan: And finally, forensic anthropology is the specialization that’s very distinctly different from the previous three.
Forensic anthropologists analyze human remains (yes, bones) to determine age, sex, ancestry, and circumstances leading to death like possible trauma or previous medical procedures. Fox’s Bones is the longest-running show on our list, having an incredible twelve seasons and 246 episodes when it ended in March 2017.
Bones is a brilliant forensic anthropologist with a high IQ, but her one-track focus on facts and evidence, without emotions, sometimes makes her seem almost too aloof. She’s highly dedicated to her career and works closely with FBI Special Agent Seemed Booth and as their professional relationship progresses, we find that she’s not completely immune to her own emotions.
