Bring on The Binge! | A Sneak Peek of the Most Anticipated TV Seasons of 2017

More reasons to look forward to 2017.

| December 9, 2016

4. MR ROBOT, SEASON 3


Rami Malek bagged the Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his awesome work as the sociopathic and paranoid delusional hacker Elliot Alderson and the series itself won a Golden Globe earlier this year for Best Television Drama. Which made 2016 an awesome year for the cast and series creator Sam Esmail.

It’s been confirmed that the season three release date will be sometime in June or July 2017 but Esmail has confessed he wants Season 3 to have a later premiere since there’s a possibility of compromising the show’s quality to meet a summer premiere.

We’d love to see how recent events will affect hacker society and how FSociety will respond to growing terror threats as well as increased racial hate with the rise of Trump to the presidency.

 

3. STRANGER THINGS, SEASON 2

Nine new episodes to dig with executive producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohenm and the Duffer brothers all returning for the second season. More 80s genre nostalgia to binge-watch!

There’s no set release date yet though many sources confirm it will likely drop next summer. It’s also been confirmed that ALL the kids, yeah, including Millie Bobbie Brown a.k.a Eleven, will be returning to their roles. In terms of story, the episode titles flashing in the mysterious, kinda, sorta teaser are revealing clues: MadMax, The Boy Who Came Back To Life, The Pumpkin Patch, The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog, The Secret Cabin, The Brain, and The Lost Brother.

“We wanted it to feel like a big movie, so we wanted to resolve that main tension of where Will went and what happened to him,” said co-creator Ross Duffer. “But there’s a bigger mythology behind what happened, and there’s a lot of dangling trends at the end. So it’s open-ended in a way that if people wanted it and if Netflix wanted it, we could explore it and continue this storyline.”

See you in the Upside Down!

 

2. GAME OF THRONES, SEASON 7

No doubts here: winter has come. And Dany Targaryen’s Operation #OccupyWesteros officially begins. A few things to confirm are that season seven will only be seven episodes long and will premiere later than usual in summer 2017, according to HBO.

Since we’re continuing to be off-book (no thanks to you, GRRM) here are a few issues and revelations we’d like to see or get resolved in the next season:

Jon vs Sansa: Now that Sansa and Jon have regained control of the North from the Bolton army they can turn to more pressing issues like their differences in doing things and, in Sansa’s growing bloodthirstiness might she eventually run against Jon’s diplomatic penchant for conflict resolution? How does Queen of the North sound?

Mad Queen Cersei: Hey, now that Tommen’s a squishy puddle of suicide, nothing’s really keeping Cersei on a leash anymore. Will we see her eventually succumbing to the craziness that was in her all along and doing a redux of Aerys? Let’s not forget she still has a huge stash of Greek fire in the catacombs of King’s Landing. Burn them all!

Jaime Kills Cersei: Well, he does have a history of slaying mad rulers, hey? I mean, for the good of the realm and all. And technically, the prophecy about Cersei being killed by her valonquar (“little brother” in High Valyrian) can still hold true if Jaime does it—see he’s a few minutes younger than Cersei, even if they’re twins.

Dany Invades Westeros (yaaay!): I wonder if she’ll land on Storm’s End and take over Stannis’s keep as her staging ground. Targaryen history has a way of repeating itself. Will Dorne back her? Will her dragons eat most of the Dothraki horses along the way? What might you call a three-way between Grey Worm, Missandei, and Varys?

 

1. AMERICAN GODS

Shadow, he did step into the realm of Odin. And what he found there was a secret America at war.

Finally this multiple award-winning (including the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Bram Stoker Award) masterpiece by Neil Gaiman of gods and mythological figures living in modern day US is happening and with all the teaser pics and the trailer with Ian McShane as Wednesday, it looks truly epic. It will also star an A-list cast with Emily Browning, Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, and Peter Stormare.

Though we don’t have an exact release date, all reliable sources confirm it WILL come out in 2017 on Starz. Send out your prayers to all the gods and goddesses, will ya?
