As promised, we are back with another list of new series’ to look forward to.
For part one CLICK HERE. Enjoy.
This new series list features some impressive new tv shows that we can look forward to.
Everything from dark family dramas to angels battling the anti-christ, to serial killers on a killing spree in a world shared by both, mythical creatures and humans.
We have a bit of something for everyone here. Part-3 will follow in the coming days. Hope you enjoy.
Author, Neil Gaiman has warped fans minds now for years. His novel, American Gods was recently adapted into a series. American Gods is a lot to get your brain around. The story-line is just insane and almost impossible to adapt to any sort of series or feature-length on-screen. But they have somehow done it, and the result, in my opinion, is a thrilling and extraordinary series. Not suited for everyone, I can you all that much for free.
Now, again, Gaiman has another bestseller (with Terry Pratchett) adapted into a new series. Good Omens stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen. The story of two angels who have gotten used to life on Earth. Their peaceful, angelic existence is shaken to the core when they learn of the coming of a new Anti-Christ. The two must try to stop the Anti-Christ and prevent the apocalypse.
Other great news about the series is that Nick Offerman (Parks & Rec) has just joined the cast
This new series stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne. Set in a city, over-populated by illegal mythical creatures that fled their own homeland. Trust between citizens and illegal immigrants starts to crumble. A series of brutal unsolved murders adds to the already crippling tension between creature and human, destroying whatever little peace that remains.
This sounds like it could be great. Initially, the new series was meant to be co-written by Guillermo Del Toro with the big man to direct the pilot episode. However, Del Toro later dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts with feature-length productions.
Since Del Toro’s departure, Carnival Row has seen two directors take on the project. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) was set to direct the series but was later replaced by Jon Amiel (Copycat). The series is coming to Amazon and is due for release in 2019.
Pretty much, a self-explanatory title. This new series will focus on the horrific effects of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. No doubt this will be a harrowing and an uneasy watch. We will learn of the true horror that almost destroyed the whole of Europe. From the start of the disaster, the panic, death and chaos, to the heroes who lost their lives trying to prevent an even bigger fallout.
The 5-part mini-series is HBO and Sky Television which marks their first collaboration together. Chernobyl stars Stellan Skarsgard and Jared Harris.
MOTHER, FATHER, SON
Described on IMDb as a “psycho-thriller”. MotherFatherSon stars Richard Gere and Billy Howle. Gere plays a wealthy businessman called Max who made his fortune in the media industry. His son, Caden is about to receive a big promotion to run his outlets in England. But because of Caden’s crazy self-destructive lifestyle, a chain of events start that put Max’s company and his entire family’s lives at risk.
MotherFatherSon is a BBC production and will air on BBC2 later this year or sometime early in 2019.
THE NORTH WATER
A brand new series set in the Arctic. After watching AMC’s, The Terror we learnt that man’s biggest enemy was the harsh weather conditions. That aspect of The Terror was so intense, it was like the freezing conditions were the main villain in the story.
The North Water plunges us right back into the depths of the icy Arctic. It follows a disgraced army surgeon called Patrick Sumner who gets a new job as the doctor on board a new ship. The purpose of this expedition is to hunt whales for their oil. Also, on board the ship is harpooner, Henry Drax who is a murderer, and a rapist. Drax seems to be well-suited to the brutal conditions of his surroundings and may enjoy the killing side of things a bit too much.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Ian Maguire. I have some reviews for this novel and I have to say that I am really looking forward to seeing this series. If it stays true to the book, we are in for some dark and vicious entertainment.
That’s it for part two. Hope you enjoyed the list. Part three to follow soon. As always, thanks for reading.
