New Spring Shows

There are a few shows coming up this Spring that I am so excited about and thought I would share. 

Thursday, February 2nd
Powerless- NBC, 7:30pm central
"Yes, it's yet another DC Comics series, but unlike the other superhero shows clogging the networks, this one is a sitcom. Vanessa Hudgens stars as an insurance adjuster who helps protect people against the unintended damage caused by crime-fighting superheroes (mostly of the fringe variety, though a major DC character could theoretically appear from time to time). The workplace comedy also stars Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, and Christina Kirk."

Friday, February 3rd
Santa Clarita Diet- Netflix
"New Netflix comedy series from Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted, Andy Richter Controls the Universe) stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as suburban married realtors who experience a change that sends "both their lives down a road of death and destruction ... but in a good way." Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) directs. If his presence seems odd, note that the series has a major horror twist that Netflix didn't reveal until a few weeks ago—and which we'll leave for you to discover in the first episode."

Sunday, February 19th
Big Little Lies- HBO, 8pm central
"David E. Kelley's seven-episode adaptation of Liane Moriarty's book stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, and Zoe Kravitz. Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers ClubWild) directs every episode."

Thursday, February 23rd
The Blacklist: Redemption- NBC, 9pm central
"This spinoff from hit drama The Blacklist was introduced in a May episode that found Ryan Eggold's Tom Keen joining up with Famke Janssen's (TakenX-Men) Scottie Hargrave, who runs the covert mercenary organization Grey Matters. Edi Gathegi (who plays Matias Solomon) also moves over from The Blacklist to the spinoff, while Unforgettable's Tawny Cypress joins Redemption as a regular. Terry O’Quinn (Lost) will recur."

Sunday, March 5th
Chicago Justice- NBC, 8pm central
"NBC will leave no aspect of Chicago unturned. Dick Wolf's empire expands to a fourth series, this one centering on state prosecutors that is based on a backdoor pilot which aired last season as an episode of Chicago P.D. Philip Winchester (Strike Back) stars alongside Carl Weathers, Joelle Carter (Justified), and Jon Seda (moving on from Chicago P.D.)."

Feud: Bette and Joan- FX, 9pm central
"It's yet another Ryan Murphy anthology series. This one, as the title suggests, will examine famous feuds in history, beginning with the rivalry between Hollywood stars Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) beginning during the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. Like every Murphy series, the cast is excellent. Also starring are Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis, Alfred Molina, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, and Kiernan Shipka."

Wednesday, April 26th
The Handmaids Tale- HULU
"Ten-episode Hulu original series is based on the acclaimed Margaret Atwood novel of the same name that's set in a dystopian near future where a fundamentalist dictatorship called Gilead has replaced the United States. Elisabeth Moss heads a cast that also features Yvonne Strahovski, Joseph Fiennes, Samira Wiley, Max Minghella, Alexis Bledel, and Ann Dowd."

Stranger Things, Season 2
So I have no idea when this is coming to Netflix but I want it to come quick!!!!! I can't wait for the second season.
