New Season, New Shows To Watch

Last week we shared some of our favorite shows on TV right now. Here are some more that we’re looking forward to during the rest of 2016!

The Americans [FX]

The best show on television that nobody (including yours truly) is watching. A favorite of renowned critics like Andy Greenwald and Alan Sepinwall, FX’s Cold War-era spy drama starring Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell is set to return on

March 16.

Bloodline [Netflix]

The Rayburns own a beachside hotel in the sunny Florida Keys, but they also have a dark secret that threatens to bring down the entire family. Kyle Chandler stars in this stunning Netflix original that is set to return in May.

Daredevil/LukeCage/Jessica Jones [Netflix]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has extended to the small screen with a series of darker dramatic series for Netflix. “Daredevil” returns March 18 and, after appearing as a supporting character in “Jessica Jones,” Luke Cage is set to get his own series later in 2016. “Jessica Jones” has already been renewed for a second season that could also air later this year. The three will eventually team up with Iron Fist for “Marvel’s The Defenders.”

Fear the Walking Dead [AMC]

After an uneven first season, this spinoff of AMC’s biggest hit is set to return on April 10 for a new 15-episode season. “Fear” is basically “The Walking Dead: Los Angeles,” but the first season was just good enough to get me to tune in for this one.

Game of Thrones [HBO]

Last season ended with the death of a major character (or did it?) and the show has finally caught up with George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series that it is based on. I have no idea what’s going to happen and I can’t wait. “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on April 26.

House of Cards [Netflix]

Netflix’s biggest hit has already been renewed for a fifth season in 2017, and Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood is among the most beloved and hated characters on television. His legacy is at stake as he runs for re-election. The fourth season will be made available on Netflix on March 4. #Underwood2016

Mr. Robot [USA]

“Mr. Robot” was the best and most surprising new show of 2015 and after deeply exploring the psyche of Eliot (played by the electric Rami Melek) in season one, I can’t wait to see where the show will go next. New episodes will likely begin to air later this summer.

The Path [Hulu]

Hulu continues to make waves with this new cult drama starring “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and “True Detective’s” Michelle Monaghan, as well as Hugh Dancy as the cult’s leader and Jason Katims (who worked on “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood”) as an executive producer.

Preacher [AMC]

Like AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” “Preacher” is based on a wildly popular comic book series and should air sometime this summer. The show stars Dominic Cooper as the titular preacher on a journey to literally find God. He’s joined by his ex-wife and an Irish vampire, and there’s a character named Arseface. Count me in.

Westworld [HBO]

An upcoming science fiction series from Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams starring Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris based on the 1971 movie of the

same name (which was itself based on a Michael Crichton novel)? The show is set in a wild west/futuristic theme park where the robots have turned sentient. After the tragedy of the second season of “True Detective,”

this could be the shot in the arm that HBO needs to rise back to the top of the pack.
