13 Most Anticipated TV Shows Coming This October

The first episode of Doctor Who season 11 aired last night.. and I was out. I missed it! I’ve been looking forward to seeing Jodie Whitaker as the Doctor ever since I heard she was taking over from Peter Capaldi, but we managed to get last minute tickets to a Comedy Central Live festival – for free – which you just can’t turn down, can you. I mean, free tickets to anything is rare.

Anyway, I’m just trying to get through the next 6 hours so that I can rush home and watch it. My morning has exclusively been spent off social media so I don’t accidentally stumble across any spoilers. Instead, I’ve been thinking about other TV series I’m looking forward to this October – of which there are far too many – so I figured I’d share a post of the top 15 coming out soon.

  1. I am sooo excited for Sabrina, Charmed & Teen Titans 🙂 They make me the most curious, because I was obsessed with all the originals.


    1. I never really watched the original Charmed, but I was obsessed with Sabrina – I must have watched through the entire series like 3 or 4 times. But I mean, I just love anything witchy so I am stoked to see both.


    1. Titans looks a little dark doesn’t it? So, like you, I’m a little unsure, but I still want to give it the benefit of the doubt. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of it.

  2. Ugh, SO many good shows coming!!!!!! My October is already so full, but at least half of your list is on my list and I’m just going to be bingeing nonstop. There are only so many hours in a day! haha


    1. Oh god I so agree with this. I literally need one of those Hermione time turners so I can get everything I want to do in October, done. It’s going to be an intense month. Hope you manage to get a bit of binging done!


    1. It does look pretty dark doesn’t it? Completely different to the almost cheesy series I used to watch when I was younger. But I do like Riverdale, so I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. I just hope they haven’t gone down the horror route too much.


    1. I started to lose interest in Arrow a little bit too – I thought there were a few too many characters so it was getting a little messy – but towards the end of the last season it all calmed down, and now I’m hoping Season 7 is going to mainly be Oliver Queen on his own, like the first season, which was one of the best.

  3. I hadn’t heard of haunting of hill house, but it looks good! I can’t wa it to watch it now. I’ve been following the publicity for sabrina, and even though I like the fun and lightheartedNess of the 90s tv show, I’m looking forward to this reboot. I understand it is closer to the original comics, which I have never read. I love Russian history so I am going to check out the romanoffs as well.


    1. It’s already getting some pretty decent reviews – meant to be pretty terrifying. And Sabrina looks a bit dark too, so there’s a lot of perfect Halloween binge watching to be had.


  4. There’s so much good TV on the way! There’s a few I’m interested in but I think The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is going to be my favorite. It looks right up my alley. I can’t wait for the premiere! And I’ve gotta admit, Jodie coming to Doctor Who may just make me pick up the series again for the first time in 3 seasons. I’ll wait until there are a few episodes of the new season for me to check out 😉


    1. I know right? Sabrina looks so different to the old series, but so perfect nonetheless. It’s meant to be much similar to the comics, and I mean, it’s just in time for Halloween too. I must admit I didn’t really watch much of Peter Capaldi’s run, so this is the first time I’ve watched Doctor Who in a while. Definitely worth tuning in.

    1. I really hope it’s as good as the trailer looks. I’ve never read the comic, but have only heard great things. Is it worth picking up?


  5. I had to skip past a few synopsis there as I’m behind on the shows (DC shows, Supernatural etc.) although I am looking forward to them as I’m super hooked on them! I’m looking forward a lot of the new shows you’ve listed like Sabrina and Teen Titans; I’d not heard of the Romanoffs and that sounds interesting too. I’m not sure about Charmed but will check it out at some point to see for myself.


    1. Ooo.. Which DC show are you hooked on the most? I’m a little bit obsessed with Arrow. It’s had its ups and downs, but I can’t stop watching it. The Romanoffs is probably the one I’ve heard least about, so I think that’s why I’m so intrigued with it. And I’m a little unsure about Charmed too, hopefully it’s a good watch though. CW certainly do air some decent shows so I trust their judgement to a certain extent.
