With the fall TV season just around the corner, our televisions will soon be awash with characters new and old that will be taking on villainous tasks, making our favorite characters’ lives a living hell. But for now, we’re celebrating those ruthless bastards that made the past year so wonderfully dastardly.

Here are the 10 best villains currently kicking it on TV. One stipulation for making this list is that the characters couldn’t be completely defeated the last time we saw them, so no dead people. That said, going to prison doesn’t count as defeated, as TV shows have been busting baddies out of jail for ages, so we’ll undoubtedly be seeing some of them again. As well, no one-off antagonists. Otherwise, just about everyone else was game, and these are all some of the most memorable characters that TV has going for it. (Spoilers for just about everyone on this list, so be warned.)

Wilson Fisk (Daredevil)
Beyond Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, the Marvel Cinematic Universe villains are known for being fairly trite and one-dimensional. But that changed once again with Vincent D’Onofrio’s complex and nuanced performance as Wilson “Don’t Say His Name” Fisk on Netflix’s Daredevil. Though he was oddly introverted and tried to distance himself from the day-to-day criminal activities of his underlings, Fisk inevitably got pulled into the fray, and was downright frightening when he went there. As well, his frustration-based motivations for saving Hell’s Kitchen mirrored those of Matt Murdock’s, though their ideologies on how to get it done were vastly different. Though he was last seen inside of a jail cell, he hadn’t yet taken on the Kingpin moniker from the comics, so we’d better be seeing him again.
