Best new Romance TV Shows in 2018 & 2017 (Netflix & TV List)


The Vore's TV staff selects the top best romance TV series of 2018 on TV, DVD or Netflix. Are Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis & Ronald D. Moore our new Romance genre creators?

We know romcoms from cinema, but we should not forget about the romance genre on television. In many ways they are more rewarding, as with most real relationships, love is something that grows and gets stronger over time. A movie has only 1,5 hours whereas series can take hours and hours to build a convincing love story. We have made a selection of the smarter ones, instead of the cheap melodrama's, and found some very interesting takes on love and relationships.
