10 New TV Series To Watch This October

One of my favourite things to do in the Autumn months is snuggle up on the sofa and binge watch TV shows with Jess. You feel a little less guilty spending hours in front of the television when the weather isn’t great outside – not that I particularly feel guilty when there’s sunshine either.

October looks to be an especially great month for new series, so I’ve made a little list of all the shows I’m looking forward to checking out. There’s everything from Superheroes to Royalty, and I’m particularly excited to see Paul Rudd on screen in Living with Myself.

Raising Dion

Release Date | 4th October

Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole, who raises her son Dion after the death of her husband. The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret, and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

    1. I’ve not heard of Prodigal Son until now. Just had a little look online and it certainly looks interesting. Also, jesus from The Walking Dead is in it! Not gonna lie, that definitely piques my interest a little more. He was such a good addition to that show.
