The start of a new year means only one thing – an awful lot of excellent TV set to be coming our way. And 2019 has certainly not disappointed in this regard and we’re only a quarter of the way through the year… which means we’ve got eight months of even more amazing viewing to enjoy. Here are just some of the very best TV shows you might not want to miss this year.
We’re sure you’re already familiar with the HG Wells story of alien invasion, so no doubt you’re all really excited to hear that a small screen adaptation is expected to arrive any time now. The three-part drama, on BBC1, will star Eleanor Tomlinson, Rafe Spall, Robert Carlyle and Rupert Graves, written by Doctor Who’s Peter Harness.
Sundays have never been so exciting thanks to the Line of Duty series, which we’re pleased to hear has been commissioned for another season after series five has finished. This season did start at the end of March so you’ll have some catching up to do but trust us when we say that it’s more than worth it – especially if you love nothing more than a cliffhanger ending.
The only show potentially even more exciting than Line of Duty has to be Peaky Blinders and we’re eagerly anticipating its arrival back on our small screens this spring. Season four ended with Tommy Shelby being elected as the MP for Birmingham South but there was no denying the decline of his mental health… so who only knows what’s going to happen in series five!
Of course, no rundown of the best TV shows of the moment would ever be complete without more than a mention of the last-ever series of Game of Thrones, probably the most popular TV show of all time. It aired on April 15th, so we’ve got another six episodes to go before it’s all over.
Will the White Walkers win? Will John Snow take the throne? Will Cersei ever get her comeuppance? Only time will tell!
George Clooney is all set to star in this new adaptation of satirical novel Catch-22, which follows the actions of US Air Force pilots during the second world war. It’s a six-part drama on Channel 4 and is set to be aired at some point this year, so keep a good lookout for news about its release.
Everyone fell in love with the lo-fi nostalgic nature of the first two series of Stranger Things. It really was quite like going back in time to the 80s and watching something like The Goonies for the first time ever… which is why we’re so happy to hear that season three will be gracing our TV screens this year. It airs on July 4th on Netflix so make sure you’re sat comfortably, ready for it to begin.
