2017 gifted us a wonderful year of movie and TV, but trust me when I say things are only going to get better. As TV series like Taboo and Making a Murderer make a return in 2018 with brand-new seasons, some interesting new TV shows are debuting in 2018 as well.
Stephen King is an incredible writer, and recent years have seen quite a lot of adaptions of his famous works, such as IT and The Dark Tower. Castle Rock is another one of Stephen King’s work which is getting adapted into a TV series in 2018, and will star the actor behind the role of Pennywise the Clown from IT, Bill Skarsgård.
The Dark Tower
Another one of Stephen King’s brilliant work got adapted into a movie, which is The Dark Tower. Although it opened with lukewarm reception from critics, Sony Pictures Television is still moving forward with the TV series which will follow his novel, “Wizard and Glass”.
The awesome Jonah Hill and the mesmerizing Emma Stone are set to star in Maniac, which itself is a remake of a 2014 Norwegian TV series. Revolving around the fantasy world of two psychiatric hospital patients, it is certainly set to being one of the unique TV series to look forward to in 2018.
Judge Dredd : Mega City One
Fans of the 2000 A.D. comic series will be pleased as the stylistic world of Judge Dredd makes another return in Netflix, starring the protagonist from the Dredd 3D movie, Karl Urban.
On My Block
On My Block is a coming of age comedy about four teenagers in high school, living their life in the city of South Los Angeles. The show features the perils of high school and also the hardships kids face while growing up in a gritty neighborhood. The show features a diverse cast and talented actors from Teen Wolf and The Get Down.
Granted, works in DC Extended Universe aren’t quite critically acclaimed, Krypton is a fresh new work set on the Universe, seeing the struggle of Superman’s grandfather on his native planet, Krypton. Set to debut in Syfy, this one is sure to be an interesting watch.
Starring the brilliant Daniel Brühl from Rush (2013) and Luke Evans from the Fast and the Furious film series, The Alienist debuts in 2018 as Evans plays crime reporter John Moore, who is meeting with Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, to investigate a serial killer in the 19th century.
If one ever wondered how a Marvel TV series catered to teenagers would look like, it would look like The Runaways. Runaways follows a group of six high schoolers who discover their parents are members of an evil mastermind group known as “The Pride”.
