The new year is officially here and we’ve got some new TV projects and returning favourites hitting the small screen that will make us all very excited! From The Walking Dead to Flowers In The Attic, American Horror Story Coven to True Detective, here’s a look at some of what to expect in 2014!
Where to start? How about returning shows?
The Walking Dead – Returns Feb 9th (USA)/ Feb 10th (Australia)
I’m pretty sure the internet almost went into meltdown after the mid season finale aired. The governor attacking the prison, Hershel’s death, baby Judith missing….so what can we expect to see when it returns? Well the last we saw, the survivors were scattered, running in all kinds of directions. Word has it that father and son duo Rick and Carl will be on their own for some time, and we can expect to see a darker side to both Beth and Maggie who witnessed their father being almost beheaded by the governor. In this second half, we’ll be treated to more Daryl Dixon including an episode centred on our brooding hero and the long speculated and recently confirmed news is that Carol will return! Presumably with the group split up, she’ll bump into some of the survivors.
And what about those rats in the prison? Apparently, we will finally learn who had been feeding them to the walkers and lastly, we’re being told to brace ourselves for another death of a major character. Clearly, there’d be no word of who, but it wouldn’t be a Walking Dead season finale without someone we love being killed off! Check out the promo for the next episode below!
American Horror Story: COVEN- Returns Jan 8th (USA)/ Soon after (Australia)
Getting right into it, the war between the voodoo witches led by Marie Laveau and the Miss Robichaux’s Academy led by Fiona Goode is over. The two witches will form a truce to seek out the hive of witch hunters, but the truce wont come easily. Also, with the next episode to air titled “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks” I’m’m pretty sure our twirling songstress will be making an appearance! Check out the trailer below!
Orphan Black – Season 2 starts April 19th (USA)
We’re not being told much and the two season 2 promo trailers reveal NOTHING! The fact this small show has garnered such a cult following in such a small time plus Tatiana Maslany’s lead actress Golden Globe nomination will ensure season two will be bigger (if it’s possible!) than season one!
Winners and Losers – Returns 2014
We’ve got 13 more episodes of this Aussie favourite to go for season 3 before season 4 kicks off! Let’s not forget, when we last left off, psycho trainer Shannon had attacked Zac and dumped him in the boot of his car and judging by the promo below, he’s found but in trouble and it looks like love may blossom between Flynn and Sam (and I see the writers took note of my requests for Flynn in less clothing!)
What’s new for 2014?
HELIX – Starts Jan 10th (USA)
True Detective – Starts Jan 12th (USA)
8 part series one sees Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey on screen together. Looks like if a season two happens, it will follow an entirely new cast and storyline.
Love Child – Early 2014 (Australia)
Looking – Starts Jan 19th (USA)
This 8 episode mini series is being touted as the gay version of Lena Dunham’s GIRLS and stars GLEE’s Jonathan Groff and Scott Bakula.
LEGENDS – Coming Mid 2014 (USA)
Those Who Kill – Starts March 2014 (USA)
Chloe Sevigny stars in A&E’s newest drama which centers on a female police detective and a profiler (forensic psychiatrist), on the hunt for serial killers.
Flowers In The Attic – Airs Jan 18th (USA)
Lifetime Network have taken V.C Andrews campy tale of child abuse, incest and well….attics and put Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn in the lead roles. Not sure how Lifetime (known for their midday movies staring Meredith Baxter-Birney) will handle such a scandalous tale, but you can check out the promo below!
and while we’re at it, Lifetime have also given the tale of Lizzie Borden a crack with Christina Ricci taking the lead.
Lizzie Borden Took and Axe – Airs Jan 25th (USA)
