New Series & TV Movie Premieres

Welcome these new series — and the one TV movie you selected — to the world! It’s worth noting that the top two titles are based on books.

Top 10 out of 34 titles: 

Adjusted Score: 73569%
Critics Consensus: The Alienist boats an impressive cast and superb production design, but a sluggish pace and too many tropes keep it from truly standing out in an overcrowded genre.

Adjusted Score: 74520%
Critics Consensus: Electric Dreams' dreamy production values and optimistic tone help make up for a lack of originality and tonal cohesion -- and save the show from feeling like just another Black Mirror clone.

9-1-1: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 71706%
Critics Consensus: 9-1-1 occasionally veers into melodrama, but is redeemed with a top-tier cast, adrenaline-pumping action, and a dash of trashy camp that pushes the show into addictive guilty pleasure territory.

Adjusted Score: 99191%
Critics Consensus: Black Lightning doesn't reinvent superhero TV, but it does give the genre a necessary jolt with real-world plots, scary new villains, and a star-making performance from Cress Williams.

Adjusted Score: 50476%
Critics Consensus: Refreshingly lewd humor and funny, relatable characters are crammed into LA to Vegas alongside pacing problems and a dearth of punchlines, leaving this sitcom's high-flying potential stuck in an amiable holding pattern.

grown-ish: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 97199%
Critics Consensus: grown-ish quickly works through its growing pains to establish itself as its own socially aware show with a fresh perspective on the college experience, driven by the charming and capable Yara Shahidi.

Adjusted Score: 76971%
Critics Consensus: Altered Carbon leans hard into its cyberpunk roots, serving up an ambitiously pulpy viewing experience that often overwhelms, but never bores.

Waco: Miniseries (2018)

Adjusted Score: 72780%
Critics Consensus: Waco brings its fact-based drama to life with an outstanding ensemble, though its sympathetic approach to the main character may offend some viewers.

Adjusted Score: 98741%
Critics Consensus: A thriller wrapped in a prestige drama package, The Terror makes for gripping, atmospheric supernatural horror.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
