Stay warm inside with these shows!

Now that fall has come around and many of us are still working from home and being encouraged to stay inside as much as possible. I can’t be the only one anticipating the release of some new and returning TV shows in the next couple of months. I’m looking forward to curling up on the sofa with a pumpkin scented candle and enjoying everything from WandaVision to the Supernatural finale.

Here’s a list of 11 TV shows to look forward to and where and when you can watch them!

Helstrom follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon) and their complicated dynamic as they track down the worst of humanity, each with their own attitude and skills. The siblings are the justice-seeking offspring of a serial killer, looking to bring some good into the world. In the comics, the spooky pair are literally the spawn of Satan.

The crew of the USS Discovery ended up almost a thousand years into the future after Commander Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) entered a wormhole at the end of season 2.

The Queen's Gambit is an adaptation of the book by Walter Tevis with the same name.

After watching Taylor-Joy in Emma recently I am very excited to see how this turns out.

The 4th season of The Crown is the one everyone's been waiting for as we will see the introduction of Lady Diana (Emma Corrin) and Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson).

I will definitely be watching to see more of Maggie Thatcher and Lady Di on its release date!

They’re zany to the max and now they’re back on our screens! The Animaniacs are returning with 13 all new episodes, but the same beloved voice actors and - if the first trailer is any indication - the hijinks of the original series. 90’s kids, this one is for you. 

Where to watch: Hulu 

11. WandaVision (January 15, 2021)

Elizabeth Olsen is back as Wanda Maximoff a.k.a Scarlet Witch starring alongside Paul Bettany as Vision as the superpowered couple from the Avengers movies. The trailer for WandaVision portrays a very 70’s/80’s sitcom vibe and hints that Vision is still deceased after his tragic death in Avengers: Infinity War so it’ll be interesting to see how they are planning to roll with this. Is it some sort of simulation? Is it all in Wanda’s head? We will find out next year!
