Spring TV Lineup: The Pop. Culture. Blush. Must-Watch List

So much TV, so little time… but to make things a bit easier, I’ve put together a list of some of my top TV picks coming this spring.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (Freeform)

Fans of Pretty Little Liars, like myself, are gearing up to get sucked back into a world of mystery and murder that only original Liars Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Mona (Janel Parrish) could find themselves back in. The Freeform spin-off takes us to the town of Beacon Heights where everything appears to be perfect, but nothing is quite what it seems. The cast of PLL: The Perfectionists includes Sofia Carson as Ava, Sydney Park as Caitlin, and Eli Brown as Dylan. I’ve already seen the pilot episode and I can tell you, this series is going to be everything we wanted and more.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists premieres Wednesday, March 20.

Jane the Virgin, Final Season (The CW)

Yes, it’s true: this year we are bidding farewell to our beloved Jane the Virgin. The fifth and final season will begin airing on March 27 on The CW. After last season’s explosive finale, I have SO many questions I need answered: was that really Michael (Brett Dier)? If so, where the heck has he been all this time? Will Jane (Gina Rodriguez) still choose Rafael (Justin Baldoni) or will she find her way back to Michael? Ugh. I am not emotionally prepared for all of this but I also can’t wait to see how it all goes down one last time.

The Twilight Zone (CBS All Access)

Jordan Peele, the brilliant mind behind Get Out and Us, is bringing us a revival of The Twilight Zone. This was by far one of my favorite Sci-Fi series. I remember watching reruns with my mom and 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie. Peele’s revival is taking us back to the fifth dimension where he not only serves as executive producer, but narrator and host as well — aka 2019’s Rod Serling. According to the CBS All Access site, this revival will be a reimagining of the 1959 series, which “used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times.”

The Twilight Zone will premiere exclusively on CBS All Access on April 1.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Season 2 (Netflix)

High school is such a witch in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The second season of the Netflix original, brought to you by the creators of Riverdale, makes its debut on April 5. The new season will reportedly pick right back up from where season one left off. “I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season,” Kiernan Shipka told Bloody Disgusting. “The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”

She continued, “Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They are very different from each other.”

The Bold Type, Season 3 (Freeform)

I’ve been needing a dose of The Bold Type since like yesterday. The series, which follows three friends navigating life and career, is never one to shy away from tough conversations (remember the whole gun debate episode? or how about Tiny Jane’s fertility crisis? Or how they tackle racial profiling?) and it’s what makes it one of the best shows on TV right now. With the return of season three on April 9, we’ll find Jane (Katie Stevens) still stuck in a love triangle, Kat (Aisha Dee) really bossing up, and Sutton (Meghann Fahy) getting extra hot and heavy with Richard. Boy, I can’t wait to see it all!
