I’ve read many ‘TV shows I love’ related blog posts and have even written these myself, however I thought I would share my own twist on this with you and tell you about the TV shows I can’t wait to watch. These are the most anticipated shows of 2018 and I’m so excited to binge watch them all of lots of tea and chocolate in bed (everyone does this too right?!).

Good Girls – February 2018 (Comedy, Crime, Drama)
“When sisters Beth and Annie and their best friend Ruby become fed up with playing by the rules and not getting the respect they deserve, they band together to take control of their lives — by holding up a local grocery store. Beth’s the perfect wife and mother, but her used-car-dealing, cheating husband has sent her family into financial ruin; Ruby is happily married to a policeman but can’t afford the medical bills and experimental drugs to help her daughter; and Annie, a single mom, is caught in a nasty custody battle with her ex.

But new to the game of crime, they get pulled in deeper than they ever imagined — and the only way out of this will be together.”
Altered Carbon – February 2018 (Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller)
More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again. Kovacs will have to do something for Bancroft, though, if he wants to be resurrected. Bancroft’s request of Kovacs is to solve a murder — Bancroft’s.
Everything Sucks – February 2018 (Comedy)
“It’s the 1990s in Boring, Ore., and groups of outcasts in Boring High School’s AV and drama clubs are trying to brave the ups and downs of teenage life in a simpler world without smartphones and other 21st century technology. The two crews of nerdy students are frustrated that no one is taking them seriously so they decide the best way to make it through high school is to join forces and make a movie — that’ll help them get noticed. And there’s also the usual teenage romance issues to deal with. Luke, the de facto ringleader of the AV club, falls for Kate, the principal’s daughter, but she doesn’t necessarily reciprocate the romantic feelings Luke has for her and is dealing with her own issues.”
Splitting Up Together – March 2018 (Comedy)
“Ellen DeGeneres serves as executive producer of this comedy that is based on a Danish series of the same name. Lena and Martin were certain enough that their marriage was over to make it official and go through the complicated untangling involved in filing for divorce. The last thing that they expected was to be brought back together by the experience, but they find their relationship strangely reignited by the experience. Together, they navigate their evolving relationship with open minds and newly reopened hearts.”
Lost in Space – April 2018 (Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi)
“After crash-landing on an alien planet, the Robinson family fights against all odds to survive and escape. But they’re surrounded by hidden dangers.”
This is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the class US science fiction series ‘Lost in Space’ from the 60’s, however there was also a movie released in the last 90’s which some of you might remember that starred Matt LeBlanc.
Killing Eve – April 2018 (Thriller)
“Eve’s life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, MI5 security officer who is very desk-bound. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job. Eve and Villanelle go head to head in a fierce game of cat and mouse, each woman equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin. Sarah Barnett, BBCA president, says, ” `Killing Eve’ stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun.”
Reverie – May 2018 (Drama, Thriller)
“This grounded new thriller follows Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior, who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana (Dennis Haysbert), brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in an immersive, highly advanced virtual reality program in which users can live out their wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself.”
American Woman – June 2018 (Comedy)
“Inspired by the upbringing of co-executive producer and Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Kyle Richards, this series follows an unconventional mom named Bonnie struggling to raise her daughters with the help of her two best friends Kathleen and Diana as they discover their own brand of independence amid the rise of second-wave feminism in the 1970s.”
Maniac – TBC 2018 (Comedy)
“Emma Stone and Jonah Hill star in this remake of a Norwegian dark-comedy series about an institutionalized man who lives a fantasy life in his dreams.” – We don’t know too much about this TV show yet however I’m very excited and I love both Emma Stone and Jonah Hill so it’s bound to be a success.
Those are 10 of the most anticipated TV shows of 2018 and I know I’m going to be binge watching them all. I’d love to know if there are any others that I’ve missed off the list that you are excited about watching. Also as I haven’t watched these yet (although I might have by the time you’re reading this) I couldn’t give my opinion on the shows, however I will be sure to share over on Twitter as I’m watching them!
