The Vore's TV staff selects the top best post-apocalyptic TV series of 2018 on TV, DVD or Netflix. Are Frank Darabont, Stephen Chbosky & Josh Schaer our new Post-Apocalyptic genre creators?




Like the sci-fi genre, the post apocalyptic genre reminds us of the dangers current society is posing, and ultimately asks us the question whether we are going in the right direction. Next to that, it's just a great premise for action drama and adventure stories, as it gives the opportunity to build new worlds.
