If you are anything like us, then you love devouring a tv series! Personally I am a huge fan of both bingeing the crap out of a fully released show and also the anticipation of having to wait a week for the next episode to be aired (Vigil i’m looking at you!). Stuck on what to watch next? We thought we’d do you a solid and share our top tv shows to watch this autumn! We have both returning and brand spanking new series to share; ranging from thrillers to fantasy. A little something for everyone!
SEX EDUCATION SEASON 3
Where Can I Watch? Netflix. Release Date? 17th September.
We absolutely fell in love with season one & two of this show, due to the incredible characters, incredible sex positive attitude and Gillian Anderson, hello. Asa Butterfield who plays main character Otis, revealed in an interview from January 2021 that the next series will not start where the second series left off, which ended on a seriousss cliff hanger! The main gang will all be back (YAY) along with three incredible new cast members. If you haven’t already, we highly recommend you head to Netflix and watch season 1 & 2 now!
STRICTLY COME DANCING
Where Can I Watch? BBC One. Release Date? 18th September.
I don’t think we need to tell you what this is about.. but Strictly is back! It is one of my favourite things to watch and if I could take part in any “reality” tv show, it would 10000% be Strictly. The 2021 celebrity line up looks amazing and I can’t wait to see the dances!
Where Can I Watch? ITV. Release Date? September (no official date yet)
Hollington Drive is a new four-part thriller series that will be arriving on ITV very soon. The highly-anticipated series will feature familiar faces from Line of Duty and The Haunting of Bly Manor. We follow Theresa and her sister Helen, who often spend time together and in the opening scene, their families are enjoying a barbecue in the sun. Theresa’s 10-year-old son, Ben asks to go to the park with his cousin Eva, and the adults are not too sure. As expected the children don’t return home and Theresa goes to investigate.
Although they’re luckily found in the park, they are at the edge of some woodland and look to be arguing. Things take a more sinister turn later in the evening when distraught neighbour Jean arrives on their doorstep looking for her 10-year-old son Alex, who has gone missing, and Theresa begins to feel that her earlier sense of doom was accurate.
GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF
Where Can I Watch? Channel 4 at 8pm. Release Date? 21st September.
Another absolute classic! Bake Off is just wholesome television and it is the perfect show when accompanied by a delicious sweet treat. We have a brand new line up of 12 bakers (over the course of each week, the participants are eliminated until just three remain in the final), however we will still be joined by Paul & Prue as judges and Matt Lucas & Noel Fielding will be back as hosts (I will secretly miss Sandi Toksvig, I loved her!).
YOU SEASON 3
Where Can I Watch? Netflix. Release Date? October 15th.
Is there such a thing as an endearing serial killer? Yes, yes there is and his name is Joe LOL. Caroline Kepnes, who wrote the book Hidden Bodies that You is based on, released the third book in the You series. Kepnes is also working on the fourth book in the series, does that mean season 4 could happen? If you haven’t seen You then we follow serial killer Joe as he navigates life, relationships and you know, murder. Season 2 ends on a slight cliff hanger with Joe’s life taking a dramatic turn that we will see unfold in season 3…
Where Can I Watch? Channel 4 at 9pm. Release Date? 17th September.
Help follows the relationship between a young care home worker and a patient. Starring Jodie Comer & Stephen Graham, two of my favourite actors! Graham plays a patient with Young Onset Alzheimer’s.
