So pretty much every person owns a television and we all have our own TV shows that we love and get excited for. We’ve had a look at what shows are coming up in 2017, whether it be an old favourite returning or a brand new series set to join the party.
So this is some of the best TV that we get to look forward to this 2017…
Sherlock Season Four – 1 January, BBC One
There are very scarily dark times ahead for Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson who are back for three more episodes of the nation’s classic and beloved series.
Taboo – 7 January, BBC One
The British actor stars in this story about adventurer James Keziah Delaney, who builds his own shipping empire in the early 1800s. Billed as a ‘monster’, expect some disturbing scenes – and Oscar-nominated Tom acting at his best.
Marvel’s Iron Fist – 17 March, Netflix
Game of Thrones’ Finn Jones plays Danny Rand in the last of the originally planned four standalone Marvel/Netflix superhero series. Run by Scott Buck, Iron Fist is the story of Rand, a billionaire Buddhist monk and martial arts expert who grew up in a monastery after being orphaned at the age of ten. Expect a combination of spiritualism and iron-fist power-charged action.
Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events – 13 January, Netflix
Created by Lemony Snicket and Mark Hudis, this adaptation of Daniel Handler’s best-selling children’s novels follows the well-known orphans as they find themselves hounded by Count Olaf, a mysterious and sinister figure hell-bent on landing their inherited fortune.
The Great British Bake Off – Autumn, Channel 4
As a result of Channel 4 buying the Bake Off, hosts Mel and Sue have quit, as has legendary British baker, judge, and all-round good egg Mary Berry. But there is good news, as judge Paul Hollywood is moving with the show to its new home. Can it really rise to the challenge and live up to the BBC’s standards? There is only one way to find out.
Homeland Season Six – 22 January, Channel 4
Created by Howard Gordon, the awesome Homeland continues its standalone season format relocating Carrie, Saul and maybe Quinn to New York. In a rather timely fashion, the new batch of episodes will focus on president-elect Elizabeth Keane in the run-up to her inauguration.
Broadchurch Season Three – Spring, ITV
The first series certainly had people talking, with the ‘whodunnit’ element keeping everyone gripped, and with an exciting new trailer just released for the new series, there are yet more chilling and disturbing scenes to come.
Marvel’s The Defenders – Still to be confirmed, Netflix
Powerfully welcoming the joint powers of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Buffy’s Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez are showrunning this megamix series and we’d wager Marvel and Netflix have left some cameos out of the publicity to keep a few surprises in store…
Fortitude Season Two – 27 January, Sky Atlantic
Created by Simon Donald, this quiet and deserted community is shook by a scary new threat as this exciting drama returns, however, this time with Dennis Quaid, Parminder Nagra and former Game of Thrones actor Michelle Fairley thrown in the mix.
