Ah, the promise of a fresh start. The year of 2018 saw a number of unforgettable endings, but there were even more enticing beginnings. That’s good news for all those viewers starving for content — haha, what a good joke. No one needs more TV in 2018 (not with more than 500 scripted series out there), but everyone can benefit from bettertelevision.
Whether that stems from an exciting, previously unheard voice, a new form of storytelling meant to shake up the system, or just a damn solid series eager to capture your imagination, great TV is always welcome. The following 15 scripted shows exhibited all these characteristics and more, making the previous 12 months a banner year for serialized storytelling.
So make a list, set your priorities, and start sampling these exemplary new series. Some may prove too engrossing to ignore, replacing old favorites that have slipped up or forcing you to skip a few movies to make up the time. New beginnings are to be savored. Who knows how much longer the gilded age can continue?

Everything coming to Amazon Prime Video in August 2019
“Summer may be coming to an end, but Prime Video is doing its best to keep the season of adventure going.
From gigantic journeys like Godzilla (2014) to smaller sagas like A Simple Favor, the streaming service is offering up a number of choice movies this August. Of course, they’re saving the most sought-after flicks for rent or purchase.
Throughout the month, Avengers: Endgame, The Souvenir, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu – two of which made our mid-year best of 2019 films list, and the third of which is freakin’ Pikachu in a hat – all become available through Prime Video. If you missed them in theaters or need to enjoy them just one more time, now’s your chance!”
The Walking Dead Movie Comic-Con Announcement

US Release Date: 2020
More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?
The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend
Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?
