Continuing the 5 Fandom Fridays this week. I will say it is going to be hard to only pick 5 TV shows, but I will do my best.
1.) Girls Season 6 (HBO, Feb. 12). This will be the final season of Lena Dunham’s show Girls. I don’t enjoy this show as much as I once did, and I definitely think they had a few seasons that lacked in substance. I did enjoy season 5 and I’m really hoping season 6 will finish strong. At any rate this is the last season so it should be interesting.
2.) The Handmaids Tale (Hulu, Apr. 26). It’s shocking and a little scary that this series feels so very relevant to our current political situation… The book is amazing and based off of what I’ve seen from the previews it shows a lot of promise.
3.) American Gods (Starz, TBD). This is one of my favorite books ever written. The characters are interesting and the story is fascinating and complex. I love love love Neil Gaiman. I really hope they do the book justice. The previews look awesome, and the cast is promising.
4.) Game of Thrones (HBO, TBD). This one speaks for itself. Game of Thrones is amazing and I can’t wait to see the show. Especially after last year’s season ending epic-ness. I can’t wait for more drama, intrigue, dragons, and fight scenes.
5.) The Defenders (Netflix, mid 2017)- I can’t wait to see Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron fist come together for what will surely be an awesome series. It will be interesting also to see what kinds of villains the Marvel/Netflix universe come up with.
Lots of good TV coming up in 2017, I can’t wait to binge the online shows and slowly watch (and complain about) episode by episode of the other series.
Are there any TV shows you are particularly excited about this year?
