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

4 of 6

Coming: Fosse/Verdon on FX
Premiering  April 2019 on Amazon Prime

Anyone who’s a fan of musicals or sudsy showbiz tales should be excited about the upcoming FX limited series Fosse/Verdon. The show explores the relationship between legendary choreographer Bob Fosse and his partner and muse, dancer Gwen Verdon.

If the promise of a glimpse behind the curtain at this famous couple’s story weren’t enough, the series boasts some serious acting talent. Oscar-winner Sam Rockwell plays Fosse and Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams plays Verdon.

Based on the trailer, which you can watch above, the series will be an atmospheric tale of theater world excess, amazing choreography, and a romance blossoming in extraordinary circumstances.

Going: iZombie
Final Season Premieres May 2 on The CW

This quirky and fun zombie series will be shambling to an end with season 5 — but not before we get to see a bit more of the zombie revolution.

Unlike many a zombie TV show, iZombie has a simple conceit — if kept well-fed, zombies can maintain their humanity. Eating brains also have an interesting side-effect: the temporary adoption of the person’s characteristics and the ability to see their memories. This can lead to all sorts of insights into the deceased.

It’s a skill that Liv, who was turned into a zombie during a party, has used to help a police detective solve crimes. Liv has continued her crime-fighting ways throughout the series, but as the zombies have revealed themselves in her hometown of Seattle, she’s also become an activist. Liv runs an underground railroad that brings sickly people into the city and turns them into zombies.

This and other plot developments have caused the show to deepen and become more complex even as it maintains its humor and light touch. We’re sorry to see it go, but we’re hoping for a happy ending for Liv.

If you’d like to catch up on iZombie before the final episodes begin, you can stream the first four seasons on Netflix.
