If you like watching really good TV, you’re in for some special treats this year. Several upcoming midseason premieres promise some of the best entertainment for the small screen. Here are five of the most anticipated TV shows this midseason has to offer.
Mind Games, ABC
Mind Games premieres March 11 on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (EST). It features a story about two brothers who use their skills from their previous and current careers to solve issues that their agency is faced with. One of the brothers is an ex-convict, and the other is an amazingly intelligent, yet bipolar professor. The show stars Christian Slater, Steve Zahn, Gregory Marcel and Megalyn Echikunwoke.
The 100, The CW
On March 19, starting at 9 p.m. (EST) on Wednesdays, The 100 premieres. It stars Henry Ian Cusick, Eliza Taylor, Isaiah Washington, Kelly Hu, Marie Avgeropoulos, Thomas McDonell and Devon Bostick. The TV show is set in the future, after the entire planet has been decimated by a nuclear war. A hundred juvenile delinquents are sent back to Earth to figure out what conditions are like on the planet after the devastation has taken place. The adults who are still in outer space dominate and rule the kids from the skies. This series definitely promises to be interesting for sci-fi fans.
True Detective, HBO
Bringing tremendous star power to this new TV show, HBO will feature none other than Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, along with Kevin Dunn, Alexandra Daddario, Tory Kittles and Michelle Monaghan. The plot centers on two detectives in the state of Louisiana who reopen an intriguing murder mystery case.
Starring Johnny Sequoyah, Jake McLaughlin, Kyle MacLachlan, Delroy Lindo and Sienna Guillory, Believe tells the story of a little girl who has certain powers that she is unable to control. The downside? She’s also being hunted by evil forces who want what she’s got. The premiere date and time for this show are yet to be determined, but the series promises to be well worth the wait.
Beginning on Sundays at 9 p.m. (EST) on March 9, the show Resurrection is expected to hit the airwaves. ABC has heavily promoted this show, which the network hopes will be a true hit. It’s about Arcadia, Mo., a town overrun by … you guessed it … zombies. However, there’s an intriguing twist: These “undead” are surprised to be back as well, and are not the “mean” type of zombies we’ve all come to expect.
Whether you prefer suspense, drama or science fiction, these are just a few midseason premieres that promise many hours of viewing enjoyment.
