It's no secret that the TV world has been in a bit of a renaissance lately. Between network and cable and premium networks, as well as streaming services, there is no shortage of compelling and original stories being told on the small screen. And with plenty of film stars coming to TV through limited series, there have been some seriously amazing new characters introduced this year. While there are plenty to chose from, here are my personal picks for the eight most interesting new characters from the past 12 months of TV.

Ofglen (The Handmaid's Tale)

One of the biggest hits of 2017 was Hulu's original series The Handmaid's Tale. Based off of the acclaimed novel of the same name, the series is set in a dystopian America that has completely stripped women of their rights, forcing those who are able to bear children into forced prostitution for the rich and powerful. Ofglen is one of those Handmaids, and is played with strength and subtlety by Gilmore Girls actress Alexis Bledel. She alerts protagonist Offred about the resistance group known as Mayday, and inspires her peers to stand up against Gilead. Bledel ended up winning an Emmy for her performance, and has been promoted to a series regular for Season 2. So fear not, we haven't seen the last of Ofglen.
