Netflix shows to look forward to this year

There can be nothing better than waking up on a lazy Saturday and hearing the familiar “dumdum” coming from your TV when logging into your Netflix account. You know that for the next few hours, at least, you are going to be glued to your couch while bingeing the latest show. Sometimes forward planning is required because you know you’re going to watch the entire season in one sitting so you need to pre-warm people you won’t be around for a while. Here are some of the shows coming to Netflix by the end of the year to stick in your calendar.

Disenchantment – August

A new show from the creator of The Simpsons? Yes please. This animated adventure is going to go back to medieval times and follow the tale of princess Bean and her sidekick, a demon named Luci. It’s set in the crumbling medieval kingdom called Dreamland, and we get to see how Bean wreaks havoc on everyone and everything around her. The trailers have already gotten many fans of The Simpsons and Futurama excited as they get to see what the creator of those classic comedies comes up with in a medieval setting. We have the current day with The Simpsons, the future with Futurama and now we’re going back in time to enjoy Disenchantment.

The Innocents – August

You know the classic love story of Romeo and Juliet? Well The Innocents takes that premise and turns it into a sci-fi teenage love story, turning Juliet into a shapeshifting hero at the same time! If you’ve been craving a new teen drama to fill your life with then this might just be the show for you. The show features Guy Pearce and promises to take the main cast on a journey of self-discovery while learning more about their family life than they had bargained for.

The Good Cop – September

The Good Cop tells the story of a former NYPD cop who has fallen from grace and ends up living with his son, a squeaky clean NYPD cop who does everything by the book. It stars Tony Danza as the cranky disgraced cop and Josh Groban as his goody two shoes son. The comedy-drama is set to add some laughter to your life when it debuts on Netflix in September.
