Worldwide, over 500 TV shows would be showing in 2017. You can’t watch them all and neither can we list them all. What we can do however is to the ones that we predict will catch your fancy this month of May.
‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was originally released and made available on Netflix since 2015 and it stars Ellie Kemper in the title role. The series follows the story of Kimmy Schmidt (Kemper), a 29 years old single lady rescued from a Doomsday cult in Indiana where she and three other women were held by Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm) for 15 years, as she tries to adjust to life in New York City after her rescue. The series has been released for a third season which premiered on the 19th of may. It will make a good watch as Kimmy continues to reclaim her life from the horrors of the past.
Sun Records stars stars Trevor Donovan, Kevin Fonteyne, Christian Lees, Dustin Ingram, Jonah Lees, Chad Michael Murray and Jennifer Holland amongst others and is based on the musical Million Dollar Quartet written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux. The eight part mini series which was released on February 23 tells the story of the sudden rise of young artists including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis through the early years of their groundbreaking careers as they change the course of the industry with their new style of music against the backdrop of political change and social unrest.
‘The Blacklist: Redemption‘
A spin-off from the NBC series The Blacklist, it stars Famke Janssen as Susan Scott “Scottie” Hargrave, president of Halcyon Aegis, a private military company with teams of corporate operatives. Though the series has been cancelled after only one season, the story of how Undercover operative Tom Keen sets off on a new path after a mysterious meeting with the father he never knew prompts him to join Grey Matters, a covert international security organization run by his biological mother, the beautiful and calculating Scottie Hargrave makes good watch.
‘The Walking Dead’
This apocalyptic horror series based on a comic book of the same name is having its eight season scheduled to be released in October of 2017 and it will continue with its controversial domination by baddie Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). But it didn’t begin with Negan but with police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), who has survived against all odds as he is constantly on the move with family and survivors to find a safe and secure home, even as the pressure each day to stay alive sends a lot of the groups members to become cruel.
Shonda Rhimes did well on this political drama series that stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope as she handles her crisis management firm, Olivia Pope & Associates, its staff, as well as staff at the White House and surrounding political scenes. The sixth season made its debut January, 2017 and it is expected to make a return for its seventh season later on in September of this year.
This historical fiction romance TV series is back for it’s fourth and final season released in February of this year. Reign follows the early exploits of Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) as she contends with changing politics and power plays, as well as her burgeoning feelings for Prince Francis and the romantic attentions of Francis’s bastard half-brother, Bash.

He soon takes matters into his own hands by putting up millions of dollars of his own fortune to take over the 13th District and make it a private police force with the most advanced crime-fighting technology available. Despite the fact that the show has been cancelled, the first season makes for an interesting watch.
