Geektown Awards – Best New & Returning Animated Series

Last year we added the ‘Best New & Returning Animated Series’ categories in recognition of the outstanding animated shows which are being produced at the moment and have only gone from strength to strength. We’ve had family fun (and some definitely not family fun!), video game adaptations, and some long-running classics. Here is how you voted.

Best New Animated Series

Nominees: Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina – Prime Video, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners – Netflix
Human Resources, Season 1 – Netflix, Tales of the Jedi – Disney+, The Boys Presents: Diabolical – Prime Video, The Cuphead Show! – Netflix, Transformers: EarthSpark – Parmamount+

Bronze: Cyberpunk: Edgerunners – Netflix

Silver: The Boys Presents: Diabolical – Prime Video

Winner: Tales of the Jedi – Disney+

‘The Boys’ might be tough, but even they can’t beat a lightsaber, as Tales of the Jedi takes the top spot. The six-episode series of animated shorts from the great Dave Filoni followed Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku in the earlier stages of their lives. It was one of those wonderful projects which Filoni does so well – slotting into previously unexplored areas of the ‘Star Wars’ timeline, adding texture to the universe. You can find all the episodes right now on Disney+.

Best Returning Animated Series

Nominees: Archer, Season 12 – Netflix, Central Park, Season 3 – Apple TV+, Family Guy, Season 21 – Disney+, Harley Quinn, Season 3 – E4, Rick and Morty, Season 6 – E4, Solar Opposites, Season 3 – Disney+, Star Trek: Lower Decks, Season 3 – Prime Video, The Simpsons, Season 33 – Sky Max

Bronze: Rick and Morty, Season 6 – E4

Silver: Family Guy, Season 21 – Disney+,

Winner: The Simpsons, Season 33 – Sky/Disney+

Another year, another win for The Simpsons. In fact, the top three spots are in exactly the same order as last year! Matt Groening’s sitcom about Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, along with the other residents of Springfield has become a global institution. It’s part of the worldwide DNA at this point, and it’s hard to imagine a world where ‘The Simpsons’ is no longer on TV. Long may it continue!
