5 TV shows coming in 2019 that we want to binge (and 5 we’re sad to see go)

3 of 6

Coming: Hanna
Premiering March 2019 on Amazon Prime

Hanna is the story of a girl who’s trained to be an assassin by her father. If this sounds familiar, it’s because the series is based on the 2011 movie of the same name, which featured Saoirse Ronan in the title role.

This time around Hanna will be played by Esme Creed-Miles. The series promises to expand on Hanna’s story, providing more insight into her origins, her circumstances, and what it’s like to be a weapon who’s also still a teenager.

Another thing that should interest fans of the AMC/Netflix series The Killing is that the series will reunite the lead actors from that show, Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. Kinnaman will appear as Hanna’s father, the man who trains her in the deadly arts. And Enos will play the CIA agent hunting her.

Amazon Prime seems to have a lot of confidence in this one — it made the premiere episode available for 24 hours on Superbowl Sunday. Even if you missed that, the first season of this action-heavy thriller drops in March.

Going: Game of Thrones
Final Season Premieres April 14 on HBO

For eight seasons, Game of Thrones has kept us on the edge of our seats and wowed us with epic battle scenes, shocking deaths, and fire-breathing dragons.

For the first few seasons, the series was an adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. However, the series soon outpaced the arrival of the novels, so Game of Thrones has been telling its own story for several seasons now. That means anything could happen with these final six episodes — and it’s likely pretty much anything will.

Each episode will be the length of a movie, and Richard Piepler, CEO of HBO, has said that he’s in “awe” of the last season. Piepler called it “an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”

While it will be sad to say good-bye to Game of Thrones, fans can comfort themselves with the knowledge that HBO is working on several spin-offs, including an upcoming prequel series.
