Season 7 is over, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the world has come to an end. Yes, Monday blues will be a thing once more cos you won’t wake up in the morning with a spring in your step to watch the latest episode. However, there are other really good shows in the world. They might not compare to the complex madness that Game of Thrones has been over the past 6 years. However, there are some really good shows and their newest seasons are around the corner. And if you’re playing catch up like the rest of us, there are some fantastic shows which have already premiered in 2017.
Here are 15 shows to help you move on with your life:
Season 3 will release on Sept 1, 2017.
Escobar might be dead, but that doesn’t mean that cocaine stopped coming out of Colombia. The Cali cartel took Pablo Escobar’s place, and they ran the whole operation like a Fortune 500 company. Fascinating to see what Javier Pena does with the CIA!
2. Bojack Horseman
Season 4 is all set to release on Sept 4, 2017.
The most existential, nihilist horse in the history of TV shows is coming back for a fourth season and we couldn’t be happier. Voiced by Will Arnett, Allison Brie and Aaron Paul among many celebrity cameos like Andrew Garfield, Naomi Watts and many others – this show offers a more stark picture of showbiz than many live-action movies/shows.
Season 1 of the show will release on Oct 13, 2017.
David Fincher and Charlize Theron are among the executive producers on this one, which deals with an FBI elite squad of behavioral sciences trying to understand/analyse the mind of serial killers, hoping it would help to identify a pattern to profile violent criminals in the future.
4. American Vandal
Season 1 of the show is all set to premiere on Sept 15, 2017.
Envisioned as a spoof trailer by the creator of Honest Trailers, it has evolved into an 8-part miniseries centered around the expulsion of a student for his penis graffiti all over school property and cars in the parking lot. The show packaged as a spoof of a Mindhunter, looks ridiculously funny.
5. Stranger Things
Season 2 of the show will release on Oct 31, 2017.
The second round to the runaway hit which was the first season is finally here. And while the hype was somewhat toned down the first time around, the second season is already buzzing because of the stellar Comic Con trailer. We can hardly wait.
6. The Crown
Season 2 of the show will air from Dec 8, 2017.
Netflix’s most expensive show is not why The Crown is hailed as one of the best shows on the web. Based on the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the show features outstanding performances from Claire Foy, Matt Smith among many others, and the show is returning for a second season.
7. Big Mouth
Season 1 of the show will premiere on Sept 29, 2017.
The show is an animated recreation of the creator’s teenage years, voiced by the creators themselves – Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett.
8. Black Mirror
Season 4 of the show is expected to release in early 2018.
The trailer for the 4th season has already been released and Netflix is looking to announce a release date for the new season which could be as soon as later this year, or early 2018. Can’t wait to get depressed again.
9. Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later
The mini-series has released on Aug 4, 2017.
The show is a recreation of the cult movie, and its sequel which came out in 2015. The only unfortunate news is from the original cast including Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Rudd only Bradley Cooper will not be returning.
Season 2 of the show has already released on June 19, 2017.
In the same vigilante space as Marvel’s Daredevil and the other Defenders, this show sees a small-town preacher harness his newly-acquired superpowers to deal with his criminal past. With religious undertones, the show is funny and often violent vigilante show.
11. American Gods
The first season of the show premiered on Apr 30, 2017.
Created by Bryan ‘Hannibal’ Fuller based on the graphic novel of Neil Gaiman, the show looks at the battle of the Old Gods v/s the New Gods. Similar to the X Men, this is another show with religious undertones as it tries to explain the superpowers and how it fits into the cosmos.
12. Rick And Morty
The 3rd season of the show has premiered on July 30, 2017.
Created by the man behind Community, the show’s first season was a roaring success with its no-holds barred digs at just about everything in pop-culture. As it sees a grandfather take his grandson on interstellar travel and survive some of the most bizarre journeys together.
13. El Chapo
The 1st season of the show on the Mexican drug-lord premiered on Apr 23, 2017.
If you can’t get enough of Narcos and miss Breaking Bad too much, then El Chapo is the show you have to see. Based on the Mexican cartel, the guy who was finally caught thanks to Sean Penn’s not-so-discrete interview, the show is a literal blast.
14. 13 Reasons Why
The 2nd season of this show will release in early 2018.
Co-produced by Selena Gomez, the show has blown up in the face of widespread popularity and controversy. Some hailed it as an accurate portrait of American high schools and the prevailing problem of bullying and sexual assault. Some also contested how it glorified suicide. Overall topical and even though slightly slow, it delivers.
15. Mozart Of The Jungle
The 4th season of the show released in April, 2017.
One of Amazon’s most successful original shows, it is based on the life of real-life Oboist Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir where she describes her career playing in numerous orchestras and Broadway shows.
