3. Jane The Virgin
After last season’s shocking finale that brought back a character everyone thought was gone, it seems like Jane The Virgin has truly espoused its telenovela roots. The is an issue of what’s going to happen and where the narrative will go from there has been on every JTV fan’s mind since those last moments of the finale, and in 2019 everyone’s questions will finally be answered.
In 2009, the cinema adaptation of Alan Moore’s Watchmen comic came out and was, generally speaking, a letdown. The dark take on a post-superhero world builds for a difficult and complex narrative, and now Damon Lindelof of Lost and The Leftovers notoriety is taking it in another direction for an HBO TV show. The indicate won’t follow the plot of the comic and will instead take place in the same world, and Moore fans are waiting with bated breath to see if this might be the narrative they’ve been waiting for.

The last we appreciated of the world’s sweetest, bravest little babes they were dancing the nighttime away at the Snow Ball while the Mind Flayer continued a close watch on them from his extra-dimensional aircraft, but surely the kids can manage whatever the weirdness that their hometown and its ceaseless wormholes to frightening alternate dimensions can throw at them. Right?
Veep has always been a caustic, blunt look at DC politics, but that strikes a different nerve now than it did a few years ago. We know now that any ludicrous thing can happen, like the terrifying prospect of Jonah Ryan winning the presidency. Still, it’s cathartic to return to these characters, who have always been up front about being total dicks, and to the remarkable timing and acerbic eloquence of the cast and writing squad. Also we need more Splett. – Proma Khosla, Entertainment Reporter
9. True Detective
True Detective Season 2 may have been something of a letdown after the excellence that was Season 1, but 2019 ’s entry into the True Detective canon has something neither of those seasons had: Mahershala Ali in a suppose but period-appropriate wig.

12. What We Do In The Shadows
Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s 2014 movie What We Do In The Shadows is a hilarious take over what life is like for a nest of highly eccentric vampires, and rumors of the movie’s reimagining as a television show have circulated for years.
