2016 is here and with it, the new slew of upcoming T.V. Here is a list of some of the new shows coming in 2016 that I am excited for, and you should be too!
The Shannara Chronicles
I have talked about MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles before, and why you should be excited, but here’s a recap. The Shannara Chronicles is a fantasy series based on author Terry Brooks’ work and contains a fantastic cast. MTV has also refused to pull any punches as the visuals and CGI look amazing. As a huge fan of the source material, this is my most anticipated show ever!

Westworld is a science fiction thriller based on the 1973 film of the same name. Oh, and it stars Anthony Hopkins. The original film was about amusement park robots that malfunction and begin killing visitors – so it should be interesting where this show heads.
