Britain's most watched thriller in 2018 is coming to Netflix! "Bodyguard" centers around a war veteran who thwarts a terrorist attack and is then assigned to be the bodyguard for a prominent politician. The show, which stars Richard Madden from "Game of Thrones," has been such a huge hit overseas that we're betting the success translates to the States. Tune in on Netflix starting Oct. 24.
"Happy Together" is loosely based on the life of Harry Styles. Yep, the boybander is co-executive producing this new CBS sitcom, which centers around a married couple (played by Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West) living with a rock star (played by newcomer Felix Mallard). The show is inspired by the time Harry lived in the attic of co-executive producer Ben Winston's house during the height of One Direction's success. Check out the show when it debuts on Oct. 1.
"I Feel Bad" is a new NBC comedy about a woman just trying to figure it all out. Emet, played by Sarayu Blue, is a mom, wife, boss, daughter and friend trying to get through life as best she can. The show, which premieres Oct. 4, comes from executive producer Amy Poehler, so it's pretty much guaranteed to be funny.
Ready for your new favorite horror show? "Into the Dark" is Hulu's latest scary series.

Hilarity will ensue when the show starts on Oct. 1.
There are three new witches in town! Yep, The CW has rebooted "Charmed." Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery star in this new version that chronicles the lives of three sisters who also happen to be witches. Will it live up to the original? We'll find out when it debuts on Oct. 14.
On Oct. 16, the much anticipated "Roseanne" spin-off, "The Conners," debuts on ABC minus its titular comedian.

We'll be tuning in to find out.

Missing "Pretty Little Liars"? We're hoping Hulu's "Light as a Feather" fills the void. The show about five teen girls and a game of "light as a feather, stiff as a board" gone wrong is a dark, twisty drama starring Brianne Tju, Ajiona Alexus, Peyton List, Liana Liberato and Haley Ramm. It drops on the streaming service on Oct. 12.
"The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals" live on in the newest installation from this universe — "Legacies."

Here's hoping this one will have as much success as ABC's other family-centric, decade-driven series, "The Goldbergs."
"Gossip Girl," but with a murder and set in Spain? We're in! Netflix's "Elite" takes place in the exclusive school Las Encinas.

This dramatic series — which is in Spanish but totally worth reading the subtitles — debuts on Oct. 5.
