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

6 of 6

Coming: Good Omens
Premiering Spring 2019 on Amazon Prime

Good Omens deals with nothing less than the fate of the world, and with Neil Gaiman involved we anticipate a spectacular apocalypse.

This 6-episode series is based on the book by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and tells the story of an angel named Aziraphale and a demon named Crowley who team up to stop the end of days. Why? They like Earth just the way it is.

Based on the trailer, which is available to watch above, the series will be thrilling and funny, the special effects will be top-notch, and the acting will be brilliant.  The series stars Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) as Aziraphale and David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Crowley. It also includes an eclectic group of supporting players, including Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), and many other familiar faces.

Good Omens looks like it’ll be a lot of fun and we’re excited to binge in when it drops on Amazon Prime later this year.

Going: Mr. Robot
Final Season Premieres 2019 on USA

Over three seasons, Mr. Robot has been a head-trip of a TV series. The story of how ace computer hacker Elliot gets involved in a plan to bring down the largest corporation in the world, Elliott finds he’s not always in control of his own life.

Elliot’s an unreliable narrator both for the audience and himself, leading to a show that twists, turns, and doubles back on itself in the most compelling ways. Mr. Robot is a high-wire act of storytelling, so it’s not altogether surprising that creator Sam Esmail wanted to bring it to a close with the fourth season.

Plus, both his and star Rami Malek’s careers appear to be taking off. Esmail directed all the episodes in the recent Julia Roberts-starring Amazon prime series Homecoming and Malek was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.

Esmail says the final season will offer complete closure for Mr. Robot. We can’t wait to see what that means for such a complicated show when it premieres on USA sometime in 2019.

If you need a refresher or want to explore the mysteries of Mr. Robot for the first time, the series’ first three seasons are available to stream on Amazon Prime.
