Witnessed a large number of scripted series in the making process, 2019 is believed to be another successful year of television. Last year, John Landgraf – the chief of FX – had predicted that television viewers would eventually get a “hangover” from the flood of TV shows, but up to this moment, it seems that his prophecy hasn’t become reality yet. Taking the example of the final season of Game of Thrones from HBO, which just got a record-breaking viewership of 19.3 million, the power of TV is stronger than ever.

Before we get ourselves to the list of some potential upcoming show, let’s take a look at some of the favorite shows in the first half of 2019. You might find yourself something in the below list for a moment of relaxation and entertainment.

Chernobyl

Chernobyl

The five-part historical drama TV miniseries on HBO, Chernobyl, has silently and slowly become one of the best and also most frightening shows of 2019 since its premiere. Featuring the outstanding performances of Stellan Skarsgård, Jared Harris and Emily Watson, Chernobyl depicts the horrible nuclear plant disaster taking place in Soviet Ukraine in April 1986. Even though, it is the demolishing and grisly horror of the catastrophe that is the real highlight of the film. Also, HBO’s miniseries describe the effort to fix the meltdown of most people despite knowing that they have just signed themselves up for an early ticket to the grave, whether it comes fast or slow.

Russian Doll

Russian Doll

The series from Netflix, Russian Doll will give you a sophisticated and mind-hacking experience while following the foot step of Nadia (starring Natasha Lyonne) in a night of horror in New York. Fun as a birthday party might sound, it was a nightmare for Nadia as her birthday party was repeated every time she died in a tragic (and a bit humorous) way. The cast has delivered such uniformly excellent performances that the familiar plot seems to be captivating. One comment said that "between its perfectly-calibrated mystery and flawed but fascinating characters, this is a world we want to revisit over and over again." The series is coming back on Netflix with the second season and a lot more of mystery to expect.

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone

Based on anthology television series of the creator Rod Serling, the Twilight Zone has come back with a different look under the hands of CBS All Access and Jordan Peele in the position of executive producer, who is also known for other movies like Us or Get Out. With 10 episodes and unexpected plots, the third revival of the 1959 series will take viewers to the journey of thriller, horror, fantasy, sci-fi and more. The show was renewed for the second part, with more mysterious adventure coming.

Big Little Lies Season 2 

Big Little Lies Season 2 
Big Little Lies Season 2

This TV series has successfully proved that soap operas are still living healthily. This TV series is produced by HBO, and it is not only full of AAA Hollywood stars but also really attractive to scandals. Nevertheless, season 2 of Big Little Lies has officially returned, and it looks to be as great as the first season. This TV series tells us the story of a group of rich women (well, most of them are rich) in Monterey, California, and how they deal with being in the middle of a murder investigation. In season 2, Meryl Streep decides to join in the series, and this is a really wise decision of the director.

Warrior 

Warrior 
Warrior

This TV series is based on the left-behind writing documents of legendary martial artist Bruce Lee, and of course, this is a martial art action series you don’t want to miss. Warrior will bring you a lot of actions, fighting scenes that can be compared to those in John Wick and The Raid. The main character of this TV series is Ah Sahm, a young gifted martial artist. This kid has successfully immigrated to San Francisco from China after a lot of strange incidents. Ah Sahm, later on, become a servant of an extremely powerful organized crime family in the Chinatown of San Francisco

Doom Patrol 

Doom Patrol 
Doom Patrol

Doom Patrol is a spinoff TV series about Titans in the DC Universe. This is a group of superheroes who act in uncomfortably conspicuous ways all the time. At first, this group of superheroes might look like X-Men of Marvel, but Doom Patrol was actually created before X-Men. The team members of Doom Patrol are Robotman (played by Brendan Fraser), Negative Man (played by Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman (played by April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (played by Diane Guerrero). When the team’s mentor, The Chief (played by Timothy Dalton) cannot be found, Cyborg (played by Joivan Wade) asks the Doom Patrol for help. This TV series will show you the great character development along the way of the series, especially when you get to know the histories of each member. Doom Patrol will have the second season, confirmed by DC Universe.

The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy

Talking about a team of superhero misfits that is created by an old, kooky, and rich dude, we have to mention The Umbrella Academy TV series by Netflix. This TV series is based on a graphic novel that has the same name, which was written by Gerard Way. This TV series tells us a story about a team of 6 strangely-gifted grown-up superheroes. This team groups up together after the death of the adopted dad of the team - Sir Reginald Hargreeves. This TV series will have its own season 2, although Netflix and Marvel are not together anymore.

Barry

Barry

At first, Barry sounded like another “bad man desperately trying to run away from unethical business but keep getting stuck into that circle” story. However, HBO has taken its dark comedy to a different thing with funny and unexpected moments. Bill Hader in the role of Barry also gave viewers an Emmy-deserved delivery, beautifully portraying the hitman trying to become better, along with excellent supporting cast - Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler, and Stephen Root. As in the second part, viewers were taken to find out about the past of Barry in the military and how the traumas in the past have affected Barry, they were looking forward to the season 3 of the HBO comedy.
