Game of Thrones is over, and whether you loved the ending, hated it or something in between, the fact remains there’s a void in the television hemisphere. Here are just a few of the shows we’re looking forward to that just might fill the gap!
I’m excited for The Mandalorian from Favreau on Disney Plus. I think it will be a fun addition to the Star Wars canon and show us a previously unseen era in Star Wars. Plus, I love the cast.
Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a return to my youth, and in all the right ways. Not only are they bringing back a favorite franchise, they’re doing so in the spirit of the original. Practical effects and puppetry performed with The Jim Henson Company is the only way this could succeed.
Also, for many younger people, they can finally enjoy the amazing world of Thra as I did when I was their age. I can’t wait to see the looks on my children’s face as they’re immersed in one of the most intriguing, intricate, and alien fantasy worlds ever designed.
Having suffered through the so-so adaptation of The Golden Compass I’m looking forward to an HBO backed His Dark Materials production, like whoa. With a fantastic cast and stunning visuals this looks to be legit.
I’ll be the first to admit that I was not down with DC’s streaming service. Like, at all. Titans came out and while it grew on me, it didn’t really shake me up. Then, Doom Patrol hit and it was not here to play with you fools. Now, Swamp Thing looks to be continuing the trend of well written, true to comic stories with gorgeous scenery and a smart cast.
As I said in a recent podcast I’ve been onboard for the Cowboy Bebop live action series since I heard that thirst trap John Cho was cast as Spike Spiegel and my other thirst trap Mustafa Shakir was cast as Jet Black. Everything about this looks legit, the least of which is the involvement of Shinichiro Watanabe, Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise Inc.– the director and studio behind the original series.
