We totally understand how tempting it is to resign yourself to the idea that when your favorite shows go on break for the winter, there’s just nothing to do but sit around and impatiently wait until they come back. Luckily, when it comes to the TV mid-season (which kicks off January 2019), we’re here to tell you there’s no need to despair. In fact, you should clear some space in your DVR (and your calendar) and rejoice, because you’ve got a lot more to look forward to when it comes to exciting new TV shows that are premiering this winter mid-season than you even realize.
Coming soon is a steady flow of brand-new TV series, including The Goldbergs‘ spinoff Schooled with Jane the Virgin alum Brett Dier and AJ Michalka, Whiskey Cavalier starring The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan and the dark, dramatic limited series I Am the Night starring Chris Pine. So, sure, you’ll be without some of your standbys for a few weeks. But you’ll have plenty of fresh content to keep you company now and as the season moves forward.
To make sure you end this year and start the next one on a positive note, we’ve compiled a list of all of the new winter TV premieres you need to know about — along with when they air. You’re welcome.
