The Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2013
Whether you're watching free online TV or sitting in front of your television set, there are few things more enjoyable than a good TV show. These shows have managed to grab the attention of viewers in some way — and hold that attention. You can bet they'll be exciting, action-packed dramas or comedies that will leave you close to tears with laughter.
The following are several of the most promising TV shows 2013 has in store for viewers:
“Arrested Development” was originally considered a failure, as there wasn't enough of an audience to keep the show on the air seven years ago. However, with the surging popularity of actors like David Cross, Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, this show has amassed a huge following that loves the antics of the Bluth family. Michael Cera may be too old to play the innocent George Michael, but you can bet that he will do a great job of reviving the hilarious character oddly in love with his cousin. You can bet the crazy hijinks this family gets into for the show’s fourth season will be followed by millions around the nation. The entire fourth season will be released on May 26 and it has earned the name of "The Funniest Show of All Time,” according to IGN.com.
Walter White is a character at stark odds with Hal, Bryan Cranston's character on the old family sitcom “Malcolm in the Middle.” He may dress the same, but his attitude is totally different. Summer 2013 will bring with it the final six episodes of the last season and the world is wondering what will happen to Walter White? What will happen to the character of Jesse and will he turn his back on Walt? The chemistry-teacher-turned-drug-kingpin has spellbound audiences for the last five years and AMC's hit drama is finally coming to a close. Let's hope we see more of Saul Goodman in these final episodes.
Agent Coulson’s death in “The Avengers” was one of the most heart-wrenching moments in the epic movie, but Agent Coulson can be seen in the new “S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series coming in early September. The agents of the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” show promise comic book fans all the superhero action they could ask for — though there won't be too many major guest appearances. Still, there's a chance we'll be introduced to heroes and villains that make the Marvel world a pleasure for comic book fans. With Clark Gregg as the leading character, what could go wrong?
“Whose Line Is It Anyway?”
Lovers of improvisation are thrilled that "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" is coming back to TV. Bald-headed Colin Mochrie and his verbal spars with good-natured tall man Ryan Stiles definitely are a pleasure to see again, and Wayne Brady's impression of the Simpsons, the Jacksons and Ray Charles will make America crack up as these hilarious performers again take their place on this live show. This time, it's hosted by Aisha Tyler — the smoking-hot voice of “Archer's” Lana Kane. It starts again July 16.
America's most beloved serial killer returns in September and hopefully we'll see what happens now Deb has joined him on the dark side. It seems things are closing in around Dex as the Miami Police Department takes up the trail of the Bay Harbor Butcher again. Additionally, the shocking events of last season's finale will make for some great TV.
“Under the Dome”
If there is one writer you both love and fear, it's Stephen King. With his thrillers, you don't know whether to cover your eyes or not. “Under the Dome” is a TV show based on the 2009 novel by the author set to air on June 24. It promises to be the same sort of horrors we can expect from King and promises to keep viewers glued to their seats.
