It’s going to be a big year for spooky new supernatural series, whether we’re talking about haunted houses or magical adventures. From high fantasy to horror and everything in between, these are the TV shows we’re looking forward to in 2020.
Netflix has so much content that you’ll basically never run out of shows to power through, especially when it comes to genre shows. The real problem is finding the good ones. Here’s a hot tip for this year’s marathon viewing: if you’re a fan of supernatural drama, then absolutely check out Spectros. It’s a new Brazilian series from writer/producer Douglas Petrie, and if his name sounds familiar, you might just recognize it from two truly iconic spooky shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and American Horror Story: Coven, on which he served as a writer and producer.
The eight-episode first season is set to introduce viewers to the Liberdade district of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the home to a large and vibrant Japanese population. Because of this blending of cultures, the story which follows five teenagers as they encounter the supernatural will be an intriguing mix of Brazilian folklore and Japanese ghost stories. Season 1 of Spectros is set to debut on Netflix on February 20.
Dispatches From Elsewhere, the new AMC series created by Jason Segel, looks like it has the potential to break out of the narrow confines of genre into something truly unexpected.
Trailers for the series frame it as an interesting hybrid of conspiracy thriller, psychedelic adventure, and uplifting journey of self-discovery. There are plenty of questions begging for answers as the characters search for a mysterious woman named Clara and argue over whether or not what they’re doing is a real quest or just an elaborate hoax. With that in mind, we really don’t know how much fantasy will actually be involved in this series, but we can’t wait to find out. With an ensemble cast that includes Academy Award winner Sally Field, André 3000 of Outkast fame, and others, Dispatches from Elsewhere arrives March 1.
Unless you’ve been hiding out in a bunker for the past decade or just woke up from a coma, you probably know a thing or two about The Walking Dead. It began as a comic book series and then expanded to television in 2010, where it quickly became one of the biggest things in the history of cable TV. Since then, the flagship series in the franchise has continued its run on AMC, and a spinoff series titled Fear the Walking Dead has enjoyed its own successful run. Now, in 2020, it’s time for yet another expansion. Keep watching the video to see the best fantasy shows coming in 2020!
