2. “The Great” Season 2 (Hulu) Season premiere: Nov. 19
If you’re a fan of Netflix’s drama series “Bridgerton” and have an appreciation for period pieces, it is almost vital that you watch this historical fiction series so you can catch up with the up- and -coming second season. Elle Fanning stars as Catherine the Great, the longest-reigning female ruler of Russia married to Peter the III of Russia, played by Nicholas Hoult. The series received rave reviews for its hilariously satirical screenplay and great casting and is 100% worth the watch.
3. “American Crime Story: Impeachment” (FX) Season premiere: Sept. 7
With previous seasons receiving attention for covering infamous cases such as the O.J. Simpson trial and the murder of Gianni Versace, the third season of this crime anthology will center around none other than the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. Clive Owen and Edie Falco will play Bill and Hillary Clinton, former President and First Lady of the United States, as they grapple with the media frenzy from Bill sleeping with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, played by Bernie Feldstein. This season was set to be made back in 2017, but was eventually scrapped by creator Ryan Murphy, though it is finally making its way to television.
4. “Succession,” Season 3 (HBO Max) Season premiere: sometime in October
This Emmy-winning series returns for a third season riddled with more family drama and the introduction of new cast members, such as Adrian Brody and Alexander Skarsgård.
