What is happening in our world? Who is doing what? what is going on now? These are questions that will be answered. Enjoy.
Every Upcoming TV Show Premiere and Return Date of Spring 2018
It was recently reported that Netflix plans to release around 700 original series in 2018, in addition to the 80 original films it already had planned for this year. Great, Netflix. Dream big. But was the plan to release all of this stuff in March and April? Because it certainly seems like that was the goal.
The early spring premiere season is heavy on shows and movies from the streaming giant, including a four-part spinoff of indulgent cooking series Chef’s Table that concentrates just on pastries, and the new Adam Sandler movie, The Week Of.
This, however, in no way means that the other channels are slacking off. New series like The CW’s Life Sentence and NBC’s Rise—which respectively welcome Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale and How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor back to TV—are also set to premiere. Meanwhile, documentaries like Nat Geo’s One Strange Rock and Hulu’s March of the Penguins 2 will make us think about the world around us from the comfort of our couches. Add them to the list for expected dinner party conversations that also includes the upcoming new seasons of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and HBO’s Westworld—and the (sniff) final seasons of Fox’s New Girl and FX’s The Americans.
Here are the March and April premiere dates for these and many other new and returning shows.
