With that, here is a list of upcoming tv series you want to keep on your radar; they’re hot, easy to watch and worth obsessing over.

1. Money Heist (Season 5)

The season finale of Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) airs in December. The most popular Spanish programme is ending its run after five seasons. You can anticipate nail-biting action, nonstop twists and turns, and a spectacular finale in the second half of the fifth season.

Money Heist attracted a record-breaking global audience, garnering a massive and loyal fanbase. Its popularity soared to the point that Dali’s masks became the show’s most recognisable symbol.

2. Euphoria (Season 2)

The HBO drama starring Zendaya is returning after a long hiatus. Despite the fact that Season 1 was rather dramatic, the sequel is expected to be much darker, as Rue relapses into substance abuse and falls in with the wrong gang. All of your favourite teenagers are back, and the cast is as hip as ever, thanks to the addition of recording artist Dominic Fike as a new character. Its examination of love, hate, identity, drugs, sexuality, and everything in between was praised by reviewers and audiences alike, with the series premiere attracting over 5.5 million people across HBO’s platforms.

3. The Witcher (Season 2)

Geralt of Rivia, the moody, roaming monster hunter played by Henry Cavill, is returning this year. Fans of video games and book series should be in for a treat—we’re guessing Blood of Elves, the first book in the core Witcher series, is being adapted for Season 2. Season 2 of The Witcher starts off where the first left off, with the Battle of Sodden Hill wreaking havoc.

Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), a strong sorceress and Geralt’s on-again, off-again lover, used an amazing show of fire against the invading Nilfgaardian army. After channelling so much power, she seemed to have sacrificed herself in the process. At least, that’s what Geralt is informed when he arrives on the scene following the fight, followed by his new charge Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan), whose life is now formally entrusted to his care. With Yen presumed dead, Geralt chooses to take Ciri to Kaer Morhen, where he first learned to be a witcher.

4. Welcome to Earth

We’ve seen famous actors do nature shows before, generally in one-off episodes when someone like Bear Grylls handles most of the risky labour. However, in Welcome To Earth, one of the biggest stars in the world, Will Smith, strives to fill in the gaps in his knowledge of the planet. The actor/rapper explores areas on Earth that few people know about, let alone get to see, in Welcome To Earth, which he presents and produces alongside Darren Aronofsky and Jane Root. Smith describes how the natural world works in ways that humans are only beginning to comprehend in these episodes, and introduces other individuals who investigate those phenomena in other ways.

5. Emily in Paris (Season 2)

You only need to watch a few minutes of Emily in Paris (Lily Collins) to see that she has no idea what she’s doing in Paris. The Netflix series depicts a naive young American lady who enters a society with which she has made no attempt to become acquainted. Despite the fact that many people expected Emily in Paris to return in 2022, it is really returning sooner. Emily in Paris Season 2 will premiere on December 22, 2021.

6. How I Met Your Father

Despite the fact that CBS’s How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) ended more than seven years ago, fans of Robin, Barney, Ted, Lily, and Ted are in for a treat. How I Met Your Father, a spin-off of How I Met Your Mother, stars Hilary Duff. Sophie (Hilary Duff) will tell her kid the narrative of how she met his father in the near future.

A tale that transports us to the year 2021. Sophie and her close-knit circle of friends are trying to figure out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and seemingly endless alternatives.

7. Inventing Anna

Jessica Pressler of New York magazine published an essay in 2018 that rapidly became the talk of the town. “How Anna Delvey Scammed New York’s Party People” delves into the fascinating storey of a Russian-born twenty-something called Anna Sorokin, who had conned her way into an expensive lifestyle, rubbing elbows with the city’s elite, by rebranding herself as Anna Delvey, a wealthy heiress. Delvey had almost immediately captivated the internet’s attention—and she still has part of it, even after her following prison sentence. Shonda Rhimes is adapting the talk-of-the-town story into a highly anticipated limited series for Netflix.

8. The Gilded Age

Hold on to your corsets, monocles, and britches, because HBO’s The Gilded Age will premiere in January! Julian Fellowes, the creator of the Downton Abbey TV series and film franchise, knows how to cook up a decent period drama. The Gilded Age is set in the 1880s in and around New York. The show will cover the comings and goings of the highest echelons of New York’s high society during this period of affluence in the United States as a result of the economic boom.

Marian Brook, the orphaned daughter of a Union general who comes into the New York City mansion of her totally old-money aunts Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook, opens the novel in 1882. Marian, accompanied by Peggy Scott, a successful African-American lady, accidentally finds embroiled in a social conflict. Between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money, and her obscenely wealthy neighbours, George and Bertha Russell, and their son Larry, the ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife.
