An outside observer may assume that in the month of the Oscars, TV might simmer down as bit. But even with film’s biggest night just around the corner, television — as we inexplicably seem to be saying every month — isn’t really showing any signs of slowing.
By now, the prospect of a mix of brand new series spanning premium networks and streaming services is basically the norm, even with a flurry of international imports dotting programming lineups. Add to that the idea that networks are slowly ramping back to fall 2019 production levels and this April looks as packed as it’s always been.
With the heart of awards season premieres on the horizon, TV fans are in for a busy next few weeks of brand new series to get excited about. (As usual, if this collection isn’t enough to fill your viewing calendar, check out our roundups from February and March. And if you’re looking for Netflix recommendations, our overview of what’s on the way to that platform will be available in just a few days.)
