Sometimes in life you follow a social calendar, and sometimes you follow an anti-social calendar that is entirely dictated, shaped by and governed by your favourite TV shows (ever had the experience of that friend who is Unavailable Until Further Notice across the entire of Love Island season?)
Having friends and family is great, but you know what is also great? The character with whom you have developed such a strong affinity over a weekend-long binge of The Bodyguard that they also now feel like your close intimate friend who you should spend some quality time with (not creepy at all).
2018 introduced us to some new gripping screen obsessions like Killing Eve, which was lucky because some of us also had to go through an entire year of withdrawal from the brilliance of Fleabag and trying not to think too much about the Game of Thrones_-_shaped void in our lives. But you're in luck because 2019 is set to see all of our favourite shows, old and new returning to our screens. Get ready to cancel your social plans and be in your PJs by 9pm and for the main source of personal drama in your life to heavily concern fictional characters: here are the release dates for the new series all of your favourite TV shows and Netflix obsessions in 2019...
