5 Fall TV Shows That Are Going To Become Your New Obsession

Published

on

When the cooler weather hits, two things happen: your favorite TV shows return for more seasons and brand-new shows premiere.

All of those new shows want to be loved by you!

It’s understandable that you don’t have time to watch everything that’s on television, so we looked through all the upcoming premieres and picked out 5 shows that we you have to add to your DVR cue.

 

1. God Friended Me – CBS

Premiere Date: September 30th, 2018 (first episode dropped already on CBS All Access)

CBS’s new series can make anyone believe in a greater power by asking the question: what if God was your friend on Facebook? God Friended Me focuses on a man who comes from a religious family — his father is a reverend — but he himself runs an atheist podcast. When he gets a friend request from the big man above (or someone pretending to be him), he also begins to have encounters that seem almost destined. And don’t worry, if you aren’t religious, the show itself said it isn’t too preachy but hopes to examine faith through belief, science and social media.

 

2. Manifest – NBC 

If Lost and The Crossing had a baby, it would be NBC’s newest series, Manifest. Ben Stone, his cancer-stricken son, and his sister Mikaela agree to take a later flight home from their Jamaican vacation with the fam. The flight goes through a period of severe turbulence and upon landing, the plane is swarmed with several squad cars. Ben senses something is very wrong and he’s right; their plane departed Jamaica in 2013… it is now 2018. All the passengers on the flight have been assumed to be dead for five years. What happened to the plane? A cosmic interference? Something more supernatural? Why did these passengers get a second chance at life? And what happened to them on the plane? You’ll have to watch to find out! Watch the first 10-minutes of the series below:

 

3. You – Lifetime

Premiere Date: September 9th

The series premiered yesterday on Lifetime (go catch up now) and it’s equal parts thrilling, sexy and intoxicating. Gossip Girl was only the beginning for Penn Badgley in terms of stalking pretty, blonde girls on the Upper East Side. On You, instead of hiding behind his computer screen as the elusive GG, Badgley’s character Joe Goldberg, a name and persona I’m sure he mad up, takes it up a notch by actually stalking the woman he’s developed an unhealthy fascination for. His obsession takes a dark turn rather early on when it’s apparent he’ll do anything for bookstore-girl Beck, including murder folks that get in his way.

 

4. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Premiere Date: October 26, 2018

If the occult, witches and cannibalism are your thing, you need to add Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to your “must watch” list. The 10-episode series hails from Riverdale showrunners and while it’s technically a sequel to the beloved 90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch, it’s deviated so far from the kooky family comedy we’re all familiar with, it can’t even be called a sequel anymore. The new Sabrina is a young witch whose aunts Hilda and Zelda are worshippers of Satan. Along with her boyfriend, Harvey, the half-witch, half-mortal will fight evil forces that threaten her and the mortal world.

5. Legacies – The CW

Premiere Date: October 25, 2018

If you were a die-hard fan of The Vampire Diaries or The Originals, you’ll likely want to continue on with the franchise’s third spin-off, Legacies. The series follows Hope, the tribrid and all-powerful daughter of the late Hayley Marshall and Klaus Mikealson as she attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted back in the supernatural town of Mystic Falls. TVD’s Matt Davis will reprise his role as guardian Alaric Saltzman, and his daughters Lizzie and Josie Saltzman will also round out the core cast. Their mother Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) will also guest-star.

 

BONUS: Tell Me a Story – CBS All Access

Premiere Date: October 31, 2018

Kevin Williamson, the man behind some of your favorite horror shows like The Vampire Diaries, Stalker and The Following returns to bring you the psychological thriller, Tell Me a Story, just in time for Halloween. He puts his spin on the world’s most beloved fairytales  — The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk — by turning them into dark and twisted nightmares in modern-day New York. Warning: this probably isn’t for the faint of heart.

TV Show Catch Up: ‘Good Place’ Ending After Season 4, ‘Dead to Me’ Renewed

Published

on

The good Place Somewhere Else

In this week’s TV catch up, we’re looking back at all the TV show news you may have missed!

 

“The Good Place” to End After Season 4

That’s it. We’ve finally arrived in the Bad Place and it’s worse than we could have ever imagined. NBC’s beloved and genius sitcom “The Good Place” will end after the fourth season which premieres this fall. Here’s what creator Mike Schur had to say about it:

“After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”

 

“Dead To Me” Gets Second Season Pick Up

Need more of Thelma and Louise, er, Jen and Judy, in your life? No worries. Netflix just green-lit the second season of the twisted dark comedy, “Dead to Me.” The network did not announce a premiere date so we’ll just be patiently waiting and refreshing our Netflix app daily.

 

Jussie Smollett is Out for the Final Season of “Empire”

Jussie Smollett will not be reprising his role as Jamal Lyon’s in the final season of “Empire.” Show co-creator Lee Daniels revealed the news after Variety reported that writers were planning to bring Jamal back in the latter half of the sixth season. Daniels wrote “This is not factual. Jussie will NOT be returning to Empire” on Twitter.

 

OG “Veronica Mars” Heads to Hulu

If you’re planning on catching up on old “Veronica Mars” episodes before the new and anticipated limited series revival, Hulu is here to help. The streaming service will add the first three seasons on Monday, July 1st. That gives you about three weeks to binge watch the episodes before the revival drops on Friday, July 26. Happy binge-ing.

 

“The Red Line” is Cancelled

Season one is “The Red Line’s” final stop. CBS canceled the show after just one low-rated season.

“[The show] did not get picked up for a second season, so it will exist as an elegant novel,” co-showrunner Sunil Nayar said at the ATX Television Festival.

19 Things We Learned from the Jonas Brothers Documentary “Chasing Happiness”

Published

on

They were never meant to get out of Jersey, but thank god they did.

The Jonas Brothers reunion is the most unexpected reunion of 2019 but it’s one we’re most grateful for.

The world is a better place when Kevin, Nick and Joe are not only getting along but making sweet music together.

The Bros aren’t holding anything back in their tell-all documentary, Chasing Happiness, which dropped on Amazon Prime on June 4th.

They air everything out from their humble beginnings to their rapid rise to fame and the eventual breakup of 2013.

it also sheds light on their second chance as a band and how their journey made their comeback stronger than ever.

Though there’s plenty of interesting tidbits in the documentary (plenty of which I’ll get to below), I think the biggest takeaway is most likely, the inspiration behind the documentary’s title: “You spend so much time chasing happiness and the thing you think will bring you joy never realizing it’s in there all along.”

Nick Jonas figured out the secret of life.

17 Shocking Cliffhangers That Wrapped Up the Spring 2019 TV Season

Published

on

Superstore Cliffhanger

Most of us are on a “love to hate” basis with cliffhangers.

We love them because they’re exciting and leave us with countless possibilities of what’s to come for our favorite shows and characters.

Yet, we hate them because they usually leave us hanging for a few solid months.

If done right, a cliffhanger leaves you feeling breathless, confused, and screaming at the screen at the top of your lungs. .

A thousand thoughts race through our minds: what happens next? Who died? Who killed who? Who is going to survive? What’s the meaning of life?

Yes, waiting approximately four months to see the outcome of a cliffhanger is borderline unbearable (and it’s even worse if a show has a midseason return date), but without cliffhangers there’d be nothing to look forward to and nothing to keep us invested.
