The Wheel of Time (2021—)

Based on the books by Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time is an epic fantasy series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred. The powerful sorceress (named Aes Sedai) is tasked with finding the dragon – a chosen one who is destined to defeat the embodiment of evil and save her world from total annihilation. With 14 books in the series, we anticipate a lot of Wheel of Time content to come.

Starring Sissy Spacek and JK Simmons as an elderly couple with a weird portal in their basement, Night Sky is one of the weirdest shows to come out on a major streaming service in a while. It’s far from perfect, but the show has two incredibly charismatic leads in Spacek and Simmons. It’s nice to see old people play a role in a show for once.

Loosely based on the Arthurian legend, Merlin is a show that was canceled before its time. Over the course of five seasons, the show continued to grow and improve from season to season as we watch Merlin, Arthur, Gwen and Morgana grow into the characters we know and love.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2002)

More than a TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a piece of history. Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as the title character, the show not only explored the struggle between slayers and vampires, but also touched on important themes of sexism, sexuality, addiction, grief, acceptance, and coming of age.

ABC

It’s always exciting when a character finds out they’re a descendant of something very powerful or awesome. In Grimm, detective Nick Burkhardt discovers that he is a descendant of the famous Grimm family, destined to protect humanity not only from criminals but also from evil creatures bent on wreaking havoc. A fun monster hunting game.

MTV

Not to be confused with the 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, this series follows Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, a teenager who is bitten by a werewolf and must defend his town from all sorts of supernatural beings. Throw in a healthy dose of teenage angst, relationship drama, and the day-to-day difficulties of high school for good measure.

If you like cheeky immortals, a touch of comedy and plenty of Michael Sheen and David Tennant banter, Good Omens is the show for you. Featuring angels, demons, witches and a literal Antichrist, Good Omens is a stellar adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 novel that will have you saying “just one more episode” every time the credits roll.

Carnival Row tells the tale of mythological creatures forced to hide in plain sight, mixing fairies with humans in a tense, murderous environment. Starring Orlando Bloom as the Half-Fae Inspector, the show uncovers a twisted conspiracy that could change the face of the city. Last but not least, it’s worth hearing all the funky fae names.

Amazon

The Boys is… Well, it’s not the kind of superhero fare we’re expecting. All the sane, serious superhero schtick goes right out the window with this gritty, dark, and gory depiction of what the world would be like if some of the heroes were just really, really bad people. It’s fun, intense and full of twists – but definitely not for the faint of heart.
