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 Winter 2018
From award shows and sporting events to documentaries and prestige programming, the winter TV schedule really does have something for everyone.
Much of NBC’s February schedule will be dominated by athletics, as it’s home to both the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Koream and the Super Bowl (but not the Kitten Bowl or the Puppy Bowl; Hallmark and Animal Planet have dibs on those). It’s also airing the Golden Globes ceremony in January, where host Seth Meyers will no doubt continue the recent time-honored tradition of taunting our Commander-in-Chief.
And even though this is the last season of Portlandia on IFC, the dream of the ’90s is still very much alive. In addition to FX’s eventually Emmy-nominated The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, there are several programs to remind us that this year marks the 25th anniversary of cult leader David Koresh’s months-long standoff with authorities. Just one example: Taylor Kitsch plays him in a miniseries that will air on the soon-to-be rebranded Paramount Network (aka the channel you’ll know as Spike until January 18).
Besides ACS, other premium content include new shows like Counterpart on Starz (which premieres January 21) and Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball’s new drama, Here and Now (bowing February 11 on HBO). Noteworthy documentaries include Rotten, which is out January 5 on Netflix and takes a true-crime look at the food world, and Planet Earth: Blue Planet II, the exquisitely shot nature documentary that premieres January 20 on BBCAmerica.
Later in the year, new and returning shows like Hulu’s second season of The Handmaid’s Tale and ABC’s reboot of Roseanne will also get our attention. But for right now, consider your January and February TV plans made.
