If you’re a TV buff or a massive fan, we’re sure there are a lot of shows that you are impatiently waiting to return, like Riverdale or Once Upon a Time, but what about new shows? Come 2018 there are a bunch of new shows that you really should be tuning in and focusing on.
Because there are so many series coming next year, we’ve rounded up the best of the best and the most anticipated shows for you to watch beginning in January and throughout the winter months, so get ready and set those DVRs!
Everyone loves a good doctor drama, and cop show, and 9-1-1 combines both of those and pairs them with the flare that only Ryan Murphy can create in one show. Plus, this show, which is focused on the first emergency responders (the 9-1-1 operators, police officers, EMTs and fire fighters) stars Connie Britton, Peter Krause, and Angela Bassett. It premieres on January 3, 2018 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
Black-ish fans have been waiting for this day for a long time, and come January 3 at 8 p.m. you can finally see Grown-ish on Freeform. This spinoff series follows the eldest daughter Zoey (played by Yara Shahadi) as she goes off to college and tries to figure out how to become a grown up… sort of. It’s comedy gold, and we’re ready to watch.
We can never get enough superhero shows from The CW, and Black Lightning is sure to be our latest hero obsession. The show will debut on January 16 at 8 p.m. on The CW and stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce, a high school principal who is trying to leave his Black Lightning persona behind him. In addition to the hero himself, the series will follow the lives of his daughters, who will be played by China Anne McClain and Nafessa Williams.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Following in the footsteps of so many successful mini series and anthologies comes FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. It comes from Ryan Murphy once again and stars Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan, and Edgar Ramirez as Gianna Versace. In case you don’t know the story, this anthology will show exactly what happened when Cunanan shot the famed designer and how it shook both the fashion and gay communities. Check it out when it premieres on January 17, 2018 at 10 p.m. on FX.
If you’ve been missing Parenthood and Parks and Recreation then we have a show for you. Okay, Good Girls isn’t anything like either of those shows, but it does star Parenthood alum Mae Whitman and Parks and Rec star Retta, as well as Mad Men favorite Christina Hendricks. Together these ladies decide to rob a grocery store to make ends meet, and find themselves in way more trouble than they bargained for, mainly because they end up with a lot more money! You can see this show beginning February 26 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
We love a good doctor show, so why not add a new one to our viewing schedule? If you only have room for one doctor drama to add this year we recommend The Resident, which begins on January 21 (at 10 p.m.) on Fox. It stars Matt Czuchry as Conrad Hawkins, who is a bit of a wild card when it comes to being a doctor. He does things his way, takes risks, is handsome and drives a motorcycle. It also stars Revenge alum Emily VanCamp as Nurse Nic and Bruce Campbell as the Chief of Surgery Randolph Bell.
