The Summer of 2019: TV Shows


Stranger Things 

“Stranger Things” is returning for its third season and has been advertised as “bigger and better than last year” by its creators, the Duffer Brothers, and producer Shawn Levy. The season will come with new characters to the original gang. Actress Maya Thurman-Hawke, for example, will play Robin, a 19-year-old who uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, which may send the kids on a wild mission to save their neighborhood from unexpected threats. If you’re looking for engaging sci-fi content with kids that solve crime on the side, you’ll enjoy watching the next season on Netflix, starting July 4.

Good Omens 

For fantasy-lovers, this last series will be more than fulfilling. Based on the 1990 fantasy novel “Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch,” there will be six episodes written by Neil Gaiman. This series surprisingly has a fairly recent setting in 2018, where there’s an imminent apocalypse threatening the population. Only an angel (Aziraphale) and a demon (Crowley) must join forces, prevent the coming of the Antichrist and save the world together as the end of time grows nearer. Catch “Good Omens” on Amazon Prime and later on BBC Two starting on May 31.


“Euphoria” contains just as many cliffhangers as a fantasy series, but hits much closer to home. Throughout this American adaptation of an Israeli show that has the same title, high school students struggle to find their true identities as they navigate love and friendships in a society full of traumatizing experiences fueled by social media. Produced by rapper Drake and DJ Future the Prince, and featuring a cast with Zendaya, Maude Apatow and Angus Cloud, this drama contains many familiar faces that make the show even harder to resist. “Euphoria” is set to premiere on HBO on June 16.
