As the end of year lists continue to roll in, the TV buffs over at The AV Club have just unveiled their top 30 best shows of 2016, with one or two surprising entries.

Topping the list was FX's The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story series which first aired back in February. The anthology drama revolved around the infamous O.J. Simpson murder case with Cuba Gooding Jr. starring in the role of O.J. and David Schwimmer as friend and lawyer Robert Kardashian. The show, it has been confirmed, will return next year to tackle the events of Hurricane Katrina.

Donald Glover's Atlanta and spy thriller The Americans — two shows which also aired on FX — were ranked in second and third place, respectively. Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and romantic musical series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend then made up the rest of the top five, in fourth and fifth.

Other notable placements include Westworld at number 11, Game of Thrones at 17, and Stranger Things at 24. Out with Stranger Things, three other Netflix shows charted: Bojack Horseman in eighth, Lady Dynamite at 19, and Black Mirror at 28.
