Five Fandom Friday - Five Shows I Can't Wait To Watch in 2017

Five Fandom Friday is back!! If you don't know what Five Fandom Friday is, check out this post here for all the information.

This weeks theme is all about TV! Winter is over and a lot of shows are returning or even premiering. I can't wait to fill up my DVR again with all the different shows and rush to watch them all over the weekend. Or in the case of streaming services, binge the entire season. 

These are the 5 TV shows I'm excited for in 2017!

1. Z: The Beginning of Everything

This one is streaming on Amazon Prime starting today! They actually had the first episode which I watched and I can't wait to get home and binge this one. It's the story of Zelda Fitzgerald and it tells the story or her life before she meets the famous writer and everything after. It's based off a book, how much it I'm not sure but I'm very excited to check this one out. 

2. Sense8

Netflix is killing it with their original programming and I can't wait for season 2! They actually released a Christmas episode but I haven't watched it yet. It's the start of season 2 but the rest of it returns May 5th and I rather just watch it all together. The entire cast has such great chemistry and the writing is really great. I will say the first three eps are a bit slow in season 1 because they are trying so much to set it up and once it gets going, it really gets going. The idea of 8 strangers being connected to each other and being able to use each other skills without being near each other is such a great concept. I can't wait to learn more about them

3. Lethal Weapon

Liking this series came out of nowhere and it was not what I was expecting. The episodes are more stand alone stories and I actually like it this way. The partners have such great chemistry together which I find great, they are so the opposite of each other. I also love the family dynamic with the Murtaugh's. The rest of the cast is great too but Murtaugh and Riggs bring it home. 

4. Santa Clarita Diet

Another Netflix original series! I wasn't sure what it was about but I finally caught a trailer and it looks hilarious! Drew Barrymore stars as a mother / wife who becomes the undead and her husband sticks by her through it all. I've kinda fallen off the Zombie / Undead bandwagon (Bye The Walking Dead & Resident Evil) but I'm intrigued by the comedy aspect of the series. Husband and wife sticking together to figure out what is going on and helping her need to feed? Okay, I'm there. 

5.  The Defenders

I know Iron Fist is out first but I'm not looking forward to that one personally. We can talk about it but I'm the fact that they didn't buck the system and cast an Asian American actor in the role was the deciding factor. I may see it but I'm not jumping at my set, gonna watch it all at Midnight on release date. But The Defenders I am excited for. I can't wait to see Jessica, Claire, Misty, and Luke on my screen again. I was a bit disappointed with Daredevil season 2 so I'm hoping The Defenders will be better for Matt and his team. 

Here's my list of shows I'm excited to watch in 2017!! Lethal Weapon will actually be back at the time of this posting and Z; The Beginning of Everything drops today! There is going to be a lot of TV watching this year!

Which shows are you excited for? Let me know in the comments. I'll always on the look out for new stuff!

Have a great weekend!
