The TV Shows We’re Most Excited to Watch in 2018

The era of Peak TV shows no signs of slowing down. While it can be overwhelming, having too many options isn’t exactly the worst way to kick off a new year. Here are some of the shows we’re looking forward to watching in 2018:

Castle Rock

This horror-inducing new anthology series from Stephen King and J. J. Abrams revolves around the fictional Maine town that serves as the backdrop for King’s stories. Ten episodes premiere on Hulu in 2018 and will likely be the subject of many a nightmare long after they’ve aired.

The Chi

Deadline describes this new Showtime series created by Emmy winner and Master of None star Lena Waithe as “a timely coming-of-age story centering on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.” The Chi premieres January 7, but Showtime is streaming the first episode now on YouTube.


Expect SYFY’s Krypton to be a favorite among the comic-loving crowd when it premieres in March 2018. The story takes place on planet Krypton two centuries before Superman’s birth, and chronicles his grandfather Seg-El’s attempts to defend his family.

Good Girls

Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman play three suburban moms who rob a supermarket with a toy gun, an outrageous plot that will hopefully bring the world some much-needed comic relief on Feb. 26, when it premieres on NBC.

Grey’s Anatomy firefighter spinoff (title unknown)

Fresh off casting its final series regular, Shonda Rhimes’ newest series doesn’t have an official title yet, but it already has a built-in fan base and at least one familiar face (hello, Jason George). The show reportedly revolves around a group of firefighters and will make its mid-season debut next year.

Jessica Jones (Season 2)

It will take a superhero’s strength to resist bingeing the second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones in one sitting, when 13 new episodes premiere March 8 on Netflix.

Outlander (Season 4)

The premiere for the popular Starz series’ fourth season will take place sometime in the fall of 2018, which leaves us plenty of time to arrange an Outlander-themed dinner party for the occasion.

The Handmaid’s Tale (Season 2)

This original Hulu series paints an absolutely horrifying vision of the future, but that won’t stop its fans from becoming engrossed in the storyline for a second season, which starts streaming in April 2018.

13 Reasons Why (Season 2)

The fact that this Selena Gomez-produced Netflix series was lauded as the “most tweeted about show of 2017” is only one of a million reasons why we’ll be glued to our devices next spring, when we find out more about those mysterious cassette tapes and how Hannah Baker will be portrayed.

Atlanta (Season 2)

Fans of Donald Glover’s Golden Globe-winning Fx series Atlanta were understandably disappointed to hear that the show’s second season was pushed back to due to his busy schedule. (When a Hans Solo film calls, you answer.) Still, we can’t wait to see what Earn, Paper Boi, Darius and Van are up to when Atlanta returns in February.
