Cul-De-Sac Recommends: TV Shows
If you’ve found yourself wondering what to watch next after finishing your latest streaming binge-fest, you’ve come to the right place.
Especially this rainy season, these are the days that are meant for relaxing indoors. This means that a fascinating TV series, a good book, or an exciting movie would be the way to go! Here are some great TV shows you can look forward to.
Stranger Things Season 4
After an almost three-year wait, Stranger Things finally returns to Netflix, and this time a new evil is lurking in Hawkins. Our leading crew of monster-fighting kids are in both Indiana and California, also juggling high school pains along with eerie paranormal threats. In what's arguably the series' biggest (and scariest?) season yet, ST4 will be split into two parts, spreading our binges throughout this June before we wait for the show's fifth and final season.
Queer as Folk
Starring Kim Cattrall, Juliette Lewis, and an ensemble of mostly newcomers, the Queer as Folkreboot on Peacock is certainly under a lot of pressure. Both the British and American series upon which it’s based are beloved among a devoted fanbase, which means Peacock’s version will need to differentiate itself while paying tender homage to the originals. With talent like Cattrall, Lewis, and new stars like Ryan O’Connell, we have hope this series will strike the right balance.
Peaky Blinders Season 6
After nearly nine years since the first episode of the BBC drama aired, Peaky Blinders is back with its sixth and final season. Thomas Shelby’s group of gangsters have won the hearts of viewers both across the pond and close to home, which means the final chapter is sure to be momentous—and violent.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3
There are dysfunctional families, and then there are the Hargreeves kids, each adopted by an eccentric old man to be raised as superheroic living weapons. Oh, and they can travel through time! After season 2’s adventures led us through 1960s Dallas, The Umbrella Academy heroes are back in the present-day.
The Summer I Turned Pretty
Romantics who loved the To All the Boys trilogy should look out for the next screen adaptation of Jenny Han's beloved books. The Summer I Turned Pretty follows Belly (newcomer Lola Tung), who's caught in a love triangle between two brothers, two of her longtime friends, during a season of big life changes. This coming-of-age story is multigenerational, too; it also shines a light on Belly's mom, her relationship with her daughter, and the lasting impact of female friendships.
