Genre TV series with most episodes

Genre TV series with most episodes

Below is list of the longest-running weekly scripted science fiction and fantasy TV series.

This list does not contain series that were regularly serialized with multiple episodes shown several times in one week. To be included, the series must have at least 100 episodes and must have a focus on science fiction or fantasy content and must have aired in prime time (between 7 and 11 p.m.).

in the case of a tie, the series with the most seasons gets precedence.

NOTE:  The  original Doctor Who also is not included as it ran in a serial format for much of its life with individual episodes airing before prime time.
