American Vandal (Season 2)

For a TV show that just had its first season run, Netflix’s American Vandal received very positive feedback due to its humorous delivery and and thought-provoking plot. Season 2 is coming out in this September, and it was revealed that these new episodes will take a darker turn, focusing on the negative impact of technology and how it would lead to the exhaustion and isolation of modern America’s teenagers.

We’re expecting a lot of fascinating stuff from American Vandal when it lands again on Netflix.

Jonah Hill and Emma Stone in Maniac.


Ever since its announcement in 2016, Maniac has been one of the most anticipated Netflix’s TV shows, partially due to the participation of well-known actors such as Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. Although Netflix has stayed mum on the details, a teaser trailer and official images of the show have been released, making us expect another hit TV show of 2018.

The Good Cop

A lot of TV shows are landing on Netflix in 2018, and “The Good Cop” is added to the mix. The show will take the audience through a father-son story of a good cop named Tony Caruso Jr. (Josh Groban), who always follows by the book, and his father Tony Caruso Sr. (Tony Danza), a former cop seems unable to leave his corrupt life behind. A crime TV show with a bit of Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s comedic element blended in, “The Good Cop” seems to be another piece of entertainment that comedy fans wouldn’t want to miss.

The fantasy sitcom is making its return on Netflix on 27th September 2018, and was promised to be “bloody brilliant and so exciting” by Jameela Jamil, one of the main cast, which gives us another reason to look forward to it.
