As the weather gets cooler, we’re headed to the couch in our sweatpants ready to watch lots of TV. Some new series will make for a quick watch, while old faves will make you want to binge it all again and again. Here are 10 shows that you should have on your watchlist for this fall.
The Pursuit of Love
If you’re looking for a period piece about love and you’re all Bridgerton-ed out, The Pursuit of Love will give you the dose of romance you need. The miniseries follows two cousins who go about navigating family, friendship and love in very different ways. Lily James plays Linda, the more wild and headstrong of the two who gets married and has a child but remains restless, always looking for new love and adventure. Fanny, played by Emily Beecham, remains more settled as she and her cousin pop in and out of each other’s lives.
Making The Cut
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are back for the second season of fashion design competition show, Making The Cut, and this time they’re joined by Canadian supermodel Winnie Harlow. Several designers from around the world are battling it out to be the next great global brand, and with high-stakes challenges and runway looks that serve, it’ll have you wanting to buy every stunning outfit.
In this seven-part anthology, some of the most famous actors each explore the human condition from present day and into the future. Each episode focuses on a different character’s trajectory (on earth and in space!), with dramatic performances from Anne Hathaway, Anthony Mackie and more.
The Simple Life
Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will have you in tears of laughter during this re-watch of their antics on The Simple Life. The show first aired back in 2003, so there are plenty of hilarious moments for you to reminisce on when you binge this with friends. Never forget when Paris wondered, “Do they sell Marc Jacobs or Chanel in this grocery store?”
The Vampire Diaries
There’s something about autumn that just screams vampire season, but we can all probably blame Twilight for that. If you’re looking for a good and bloody love story without Edward and Bella, jump back in to The Vampire Diaries for some romance, sibling rivalry, and supernatural folklore. If vamps aren’t your thing, at least there are hybrids, werewolves, ghosts and witches to tide you over!
If Lord of the Flies happened with a group of teenage girls, the result would be The Wilds. Stakes are high after a group of very different young women survive a plane crash and have to stay alive as castaways. There’s one huge twist surrounding the crash, and trying to piece it all together will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about why they were stranded.
Cue some adorable meet-cutes! Season two of Modern Love is finally out, and the stories inspired by The New York Times‘ column are just as heartwarming and devastating as they were in season one. This time, a whole new cast of actors is here to bring the tales of falling in and out of love to life, with appearances by Kit Harington, Anna Paquin and more.
Nine Perfect Strangers
Nicole Kidman’s latest twisty role might just be her creepiest yet. In Nine Perfect Strangers, Kidman plays the leader of a wellness retreat who resorts to extreme measures in order to heal the attendees. She’s joined by a star studded cast including Regina Hall, Manny Jacinto, Melissa McCarthy and more, who all give some wild and chilling performances as their characters try their best to totally transform. It’s chilling to see how far people will go in the same of wellness.
History gets the comedic treatment thanks to the hilarious performances given by Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult in The Great. The pair star as Russian empress Catherine the Great and her husband Peter III of Russia, with the show following their marriage and Catherine’s schemes to get rid of the egotistical and buffoonish Peter and rule Russia. Chaos ensues as Catherine gets a lover and ropes her allies into helping her try to take the throne. Prepare for some fab outfits and a ton of swearing.
Little Fires Everywhere
Based on Celeste Ng’s novel of the same name, Little Fires Everywhere is one of the best miniseries to grace our screens in a long time. The show explores race, class and motherhood as two worlds collide when Mia Warren, played by Kerry Washington, and her daughter Pearl, move to Shaker Heights. Their presence shakes up the seemingly picture-perfect Richardson family, headed by Elena, played by Reese Witherspoon and both families begin to fall apart as tensions rise.
