Winter is my least favorite season. It’s cold and snowy (depending on where you live) and I just want to sit inside 24/7 cuddled up with my cat. Luckily, there are a lot of shows premiering in the next few months to give me something to do.
Sunday, January 4th – Downton Abbey (PBS)
The cast of Downton Abbey recently visited the Today show to talk about the upcoming season. They answered a few questions, and Hugh Bonneville said to bring a hanky for a few episodes, but be prepared to laugh as well. Downton Abbey is one of my absolute favorite shows, and I can’t wait for its return!
Sunday, January 11th – Girls (HBO)
Girls returns with Hannah Horvath moving to Iowa. Entertainment Weekly talks about the latest promo released for the comedy series. The plan is, there is no plan. Girls always cracks me up, so I’m looking forward to the new season.
Sunday, January 11th – Togetherness (HBO)
Togetherness is a brand new comedy by the Duplass brothers, and their first TV series. Variety talks about the upcoming series, saying that there will be some hilariously awkward moments. The show will follow a dysfunctional Los Angeles couple with kids, whose sister and friend move into their already-cramped house.
Wednesday, January 28th – The Americans (FX)
The Americans is another one of my all time favorite shows. A new promo premiered tonight during the Sons of Anarchy series finale (which I’m still crying about), and Yahoo TV talks about what we’ve learned in the latest trailer.
Thursday, February 5th – The Blacklist (NBC)
The Blacklist is currently on a mid-season break, but Fashion & Style has five questions they want answered when it returns in February. The first two are definitely questions that have been lingering in my mind: is Red Liz’s father? And what is up with Red and Tom? Hopefully, these questions get answered in the second half of the second season.
Sunday, February 8th – The Walking Dead (AMC)
The Walking Dead is another show that is currently on mid-season break. i09 posted an article discussing the possibility of the next “bad guys” in the next half of season 5. Apparently, some people think that the next villains will be the “whisperers”, who are a group of lunatics who wear walker skin on their faces and whisper to each other. The other possibility is Negan. Now, we all know the show doesn’t follow the comics, so we’ll have to wait and see where this goes.
Sunday, February 8th – Better Call Saul (AMC)
Everyone is talking about Better Call Saul. I am so excited about this new series, but a little nervous too. Sequels/prequels make me nervous, because so often they aren’t as good as the predecessor. However, I think that this show will actually do well; they know how much they have to live up to, so I think they will deliver. The best thing you can do is check out Saul Goodman’s website. It’s amazing.
