This is a list of seasons completed by the Houston Astros, originally known as the Houston Colt .45s, professional baseball franchise.

The Astros have completed 51 seasons in Major League Baseball, qualifying for the postseason nine times and reaching one World Series (2005). Established as an expansion franchise in 1962, the team's first winning season was in 1972. In 1980 the Astros made their first postseason appearance. From 1997-2005, the team made postseason appearances in six out of nine seasons. From 2006 to 2013 the franchise experienced a steady decline with consecutive 100-loss seasons in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2015 the team defeated the New York Yankees in the 2015 American League Wild Card Game. This was the Astros' first postseason appearance as an American League team, and first overall since 2005. It was also the Astros' first playoff win since Game 6 of the 2005 National League Championship Series.
