In this time of Peak TV there are countless viewing options out there for television fans. With so many choices it’s harder than ever to prioritize what to watch, let alone narrow down the Top 10 Canadian Shows of 2015. But that’s exactly what we’ve tried to do here with the help of 15 television critics and writers from across Canada. We asked them to put together a list of their top 10 Canadian television shows from the past year. We gave 10 points for No. 1, 9 points for No. 2, 8 points for No. 3 and so on. The overall list was then determined by the cumulative point total for each show.

Orphan Black once again reigned supreme and held onto the top spot for the second year in a row. However, there was a big injection of new blood as freshman series Schitt’s Creek, X Company, Killjoys and This Life all cracked the Top 10. Take a look at how everything shook out below and let us know how these selections match up against your own top 10!
