Right after I posted my lists of mid-season shows, the Television Critics Association announced even more premiere dates. So, here are a few more new and returning shows that I am excited about watching in the next few months.
1. The Fall season two is being released January 16 on Netflix, stars Gillian Anderson, Jamie Dornan, John Lynch, Bronagh Waugh, Archie Panjabi, Niamh McGrady, Stuart Graham, Colin Morgan, Brian Milligan, and Séainín Brennan. This show is so well-acted and so intense, I have been waiting for the new season since I finished the last episode. However, it is definitely not something that I watch right before I go to sleep.
2. The Musketeers season two premieres January 17 on BBC America, stars Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera, Howard Charles, Marc Warren, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy, Ryan Gage, Hugo Speer, and Alexandra Dowling. I really enjoyed the first season of this show. It is probably not going to win any awards, but it is just a lot of fun. What could be bad about cute boys and sword fights?!
3. Chasing Life the second half of season one premieres January 19 on ABC Family, stars Italia Ricci, Mary Page Keller, Aisha Dee, Richard Brancatisano, Haley Ramm, Scott Michael Foster, Rebecca Schull, and Steven Webber. Iniitally, I was not sure I could watch a show about a girl who is diagnosed with leukemia, but it is just really heart-warming and more about the girl than it is about her cancer.
4. Schitt’s Creek season one premieres February 11 on Pop, stars Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliot, Emily Hampshire, and Sarah Levy. When wealthy video store magnate Johnny Rose and his family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to a small backwoods town he once bought as a joke. I still have not been able to figure out which channel this is on my television, but I will definitely find it in the next month so I can watch what looks like a hilarious new show.
