Fall means new TV, and this year, some of the best new TV shows won’t air on the traditional networks. No, this years’ most talked-about new show will air on the likes of Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, and Apple TV! Here are some of the most anticipated new shows that will premiere in the 2019-2020 TV season!
The Morning Show
Premiere date: November 2019
Streams on: Apple TV+
We’ve covered just how excited people are for Apple’s game-changing streaming platform, Apple TV+. Apple hopes that its new service can get the upper hand on existing competitors like Netflix and Hulu, as well as newcomers, like Disney+. The tech-giant does have one thing going for it: million already own some Apple product, meaning free advertising. However, it seems like The Morning Show might be the ace up Apple’s sleeve. In fact, Apple’s putting quite a few eggs in the Morning Show basket: the show is reportedly the most expensive ever produced. Each episode cost Apple $15 million, the same cost-per-episode as the latest season of Game of Thrones. Morning Show stars Reese Witherspoon, Jenifer Aniston, and Steve Carrell, and tells the behind-the-scenes drama of a fictional morning TV talk show.
Premiere date: September 6
Streams on: Netflix
Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen takes comedy and mockumentaries to a whole other level. However, now, after hits like Borat and Who Is America, Cohen is back, but with something very different. The comedian’s newest venture is The Spy, a historical spy-drama. Choen takes on the role of Eli Cohen, a real-life Mossad agent who infiltrated the Syrian government in the ’60s, becoming the only one to do so. Gideon Raff created the show and hand-picked Cohen for the role. Raff also created the Isreali show Prisoner of War, on which Homeland was based on.
Premiere date: August 30
Streams on: Amazon Prime
Amid the slew of new shows coming to the small screen this fall, Amazon wants to entice viewers with something a little different. Carnival Row, its latest original show, features stars Orlando Bloom and Care Delevingne like you’ve never seen them before. The show is set in a fantasy world, in a riff on the Victorian era, one filled with mythological creatures and magic. Creators say its a tale of “darkness, hope, and love.” Bloom and Delevingne portray a detective and a fairy engaged in an illegal affair who try and solve a string of deadly murders. While the show certainly looks strange, it also sounds incredible – we’re looking forward to seeing how it holds up.
Premiere date: November 12
Streams on: Disney+
The Mandalorian must be one of the most talked-about series this year. Set in the Star Wars universe, it stars Game of Thrones alumni Pedro Pascal (Prince Oberyn Pascal). While Disney has yet to reveal the plotline of the show, they did tell fans it will take place five years after the Return of the Jedi movie. The Mandalorian is, according to Pascal, “a bounty hunter like Boba Fett, a lone gunfighter in the other reaches of the galaxy after the fall of the Empire.” Star Wars and Disney fans alike are incredibly excited for this one – will it live up to the Star Wars hype? We shall soon find out!
