The era of “peak TV” is here and it is here to stay. Since there is a major influx of new shows hitting the small screen on a regular basis, it is getting very difficult to keep track of them. However, the brightest feathers always manage to get their fair share of attention. Here’s a list of top 12 series to keep a keen eye on in 2016. We hope you find them appealing. The list isn’t in any particular order.
1. Vice Principals-(HBO)
HBO is a network that hardly disappoints. They will soon be coming out with a comedy, which revolves around the lives of two vice principals gunning for the principal’s post at a midwestern high school. Danny McBride and Walton Goggins have been chosen to essay the roles of the protagonists. Co-created by the makers of the satire, Eastbound & Down, Danny McBride and Jody Hill, you can expect a show full of raunchy one-upmanship from the new series.
2. Game of Thrones-(HBO)
Game of Thrones is easily the most anticipated show of the year. 6 episodes of the latest season have been aired already and they haven’t disappointed. GOT is one of TV’s most durable hits and since the TV series has officially caught up with its literary source material, which remains unfinished, from now onwards, fans of the books won’t know what’s coming next. And, that mystery only adds to its already massive appeal.
3. American Gods- (Starz)
Although American Gods has taken a long road through development hell, it looks set for release sometime in late 2016. Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller has been tasked to spearhead the show. Based on Neil Gaiman’s book, there is a lot of buzz surrounding this series and rightly so. Picked by Starz, a network steadily making a name for itself with edgy programming, this series looks like a sure winner.
