TV Shows

We may be living in a golden age of TV, but panning through all the dross to find that gold can be time-consuming and tedious. For every much-discussed hit like The Good Place, Game of Thrones, or The Handmaid’s Tale, there are dozens of new original shows that barely tip the cultural needle. And with so many new streaming services emerging to compete with HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Disney+, it’s impossible to keep up with everything new to view. But The Verge’s TV section is ready to help. Our news, reviews, and interviews help you find the next Stranger Things or Black Mirror in time to keep up with the cultural conversation. And our essays and analysis invite you to consider the deeper context for what you’re watching.
