TV shows hitting the screen in 2018

2017 saw a whole lot of TV content we were hooked on. 2018 is set to be no different with a range of new TV shows and long-awaited series returning to our screens in the early months of the year.

Check out the titles below that are set to arrive this year and get ready for some exciting content!


The Handmaid’s Tale season 2

Golden Globes winner for Best Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama Series, The Handmaids Tale is a must see. The adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel was a hit last year and there will be a number of people stoked to hear that it’s coming back to our screens!

The season 1 finale left us with so many questions, such as where was the van taking Offred and will she ever be reunited with her family or see Moira again? Season 2 follows Offred’s story beyond the source material of the novel and into new territory set to exceed our expectations.

A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2

2017 saw the first book hit the screens and it ended with the promise of the second book.

The announcement of season 2 was as quirky as the show itself with a video statement highlighting a URL to visit that then featured a letter to the viewer announcing more episodes to come. The first season covered the first four books in the series over eight episodes, and the next instalment will adapt books five through nine over ten episodes.

It’s not so unfortunate that Neil Patrick Harris will return in this darkly comic interpretation of the well-known Lemony Snicket series as of March 30.

This season is rumoured to only be 16 episodes long but something tells us it will be action-packed!
