Complete list of 2010s American detective shows

Below is a list of American detective series from the 2010s. This includes series that started prior to 2010 and continued into the decade, as well as shows that started in the 2010s and continued into the 2020s. It currently includes anything that can be considered a crime series, a crime drama, or a mystery series.

Eventually, I hope to reorganize this list more chronologically rather than alphabetically, and to add more details about each show.
