2018 is the year of the TV reboot, and frankly we're here for it. 

From our childhood favorites to the sitcoms we watched on the sly, some of the best TV shows from the 90s and early 00s are making their way back to our screens one way or another: 

Will & Grace

Beloved sitcom Will & Grace is making a return to our TV screens with the original cast signed up for the reboot. 

The return is limited edition, with a run of a single 16-episode season.

The X Files

According to reports, a 10-episode of the X-Files is coming to a screen near you, and soon. 

The modern reboot, set in the present day, will still portray iconic duo Mulder and Scully, who attempt to unlock the secrets of the galaxy in the popular sci-fi series.

The CW Television Network has officially ordered a pilot episode for a new season of Charmed. 

The reboot is set to take place in the present day, and will have a distinctively feminist feel.

'This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centres on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches,' reads the official show reboot description, according to Entertainment.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch 

Netflix intends to bring back the legendary characters, but with a dark twist. 

The currently untitled series ,based on the Archie comic The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been snapped up by the streaming service for an initial two seasons, according to Deadline.

Riverdale writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and director Lee Toland Krieger are set to work on the pilot.

Okay, so friends isn't being made into a reboot, but it has made an appearance on Netflix for a who;le new generation to enjoy.

All of the episodes are currently available, so if you have some free time, there's a decade of TV ready and waiting.

My Super Sweet 16

The infamous MTV show it's making its way back, and we cannot wait.

And better still, it's not going to be based around ludicrously rich 15-year-olds anymore, and will instead focus on people "coming of age."

"MTV cordially invites you to My Super Sweet… and extraordinary television event featuring the most important day of your life marked by the greatest of celebrations – Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera, Debutante Ball, Debut, or any other coming of age milestone event – if it's going to be lit, we want to know about it!" said a MTV press release.

Spoiler alert: If you have not seen the end of 13 Reasons Why and Big Little Lies, look away now.


If I could spend the rest of my life watching TV shows, I would. Sad, I know, but I absolutely love them.

When I have a bad day, TV shows take me away from my world and into another. I bond over certain shows with friends and if my life is particularly dry, I love the drama a programme gives me. Because it’s not my drama and I don’t have to deal with it.

But there’s something different about TV lately.

The world we live in is changing and therefore, so are the shows we watch. They’re not just platforms for entertainment anymore – they’re stories which try to send a strong message to each and every one of us. They're lessons.

You can probably guess which shows I’m talking about. Yep, 13 Reasons Why and Big Little Lies.

Both extremely different, but both just as captivating. And important. They’re so important.

One focuses on young adults, and the other is based on middle-aged women.

One is about suicide, and the other is about domestic abuse.

I know these concepts are nothing new to TV or film – but the way the producers, directors and actors handled these shows challenged the norm.

There wasn't a happy ending where everything turned out to be OK.

In 13 Reasons Why, the ending was tragic, and real, and absolute. There was no happy ending for Hannah Baker.

It shows that no, sometimes everything is not ‘grand’ and we really have to listen to people to understand them and what they’re going through.

We all missed Alex’s signs, right? But, they were there, and we were too busy with the rest of the story to listen.

The show should be a lesson that we need to be there for the people we love. We need to pick up and learn from the signs and we can’t take for granted a throwaway comment, because you never know how much that comment can impact someone.

As for Big Little Lies, it was a vastly different setting, yet I got a sense of similarity between it and 13RW.

Struggles were hidden. Signs were lost. Everything appears fine on the outside, when genuinely awful things are happening on the inside.

Nicole Kidman portrayed a woman who was being abused by her husband.

She was insistent that he loved her and she loved him, but if she went against him, his rage would be too strong for her words.

He hit her. He slapped her. He pushed her. He slammed her against the wall.

He said he would change but he didn’t. And in the end, his son began to follow in his footsteps.

And it was then, that Nicole's character, Celeste, decided she needed put an end to their relationship.

But how many friends was she hiding her bruises from? How perfect did she look on the outside?

It’s frightening to think that someone I know and love could be embroiled in a relationship like this, and I’m none the wiser to it.

It’s TV shows like this that make you think, make you want to be better and make you want the world we live in to be better.

Revenge porn. Dating abuse. Cat-calling. Domestic abuse. Adultery. Illicit pictures. Body shaming. Perjury. Rape. Suicide.

All of these issues are dealt with in 13 Reasons Why and Big Little Lies.

They need to be seen and understood.

And even if you’re an 18-year-old watching Big Little Lies, or a 30-year-old watching 13 Reasons Why, these things are happening in our world right now, and we need to take notice.


We have to admit, we're binge watchers here in SHEmazing! HQ.

We love nothing more that cuddling up on the sofa with a cuppa tea (or glass of wine), and letting our minds wander into the lives of the characters we're seeing on screen.

So, whether you love a good drama about bitchy Upper East Siders, or fancy a thriller about a hchirpy serial killer, there's going to be something in this list for you.

Here are 13 TV shows that have a hella loada seasons, so you can binge watch to your heart's content this weekend:

1. 24

Jack Bauer, the Director of Field Ops for the Counter-Terrorist Unit in LA, races against the clock to stop terrorist plots and save his nation (and family) from disaster.

This TV show is literally thrill, after thrill, after thrill.


2. Entourage

This is actually based on the life of Mark Wahlberg when he first moved to LA. Film star, Vince Chase, has to navigate his way through Hollywood along with the help of his friends.

There's plenty of ups and downs, along with a lot of laughs. And Ari Gold is THE MAN.


3. The Walking Dead

Former sheriff, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma to a world full of zombies (they call them walkers in the show).

He ends up leading a group of survivors to safety, but nothing will ever be as safe as it seems. And sometimes, humans are worse than the walkers…


4. Gossip Girl

Ah, Gossip Girl. The show depicts the lives of a group of privileged Upper East Side teenagers.

Between its many scandals, affairs, deaths and robberies, all is chronicled by a blogger, who sends out texts and emails, spilling the dirty deets of the lives of Serena, Blair, Chuck, Nate and Dan.


5. Prison Break

Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man, named Michael, is sent to prison, where he will ultimately end up on death row.

His only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to get himself sent to the same prison in order to break them both out, from the inside.


6. Desperate Housewives

This is the story of a group of women living in a suburban neighbourhood.

After the mysterious suicide of a neighbour, the women must all come together and protect each other from their secrets getting out. And believe us, they have a lot of secrets.


7. The Wire

The Wire depicts the Baltimore drug scene. In the show, we get to see both sides; the lives of the drug dealers and the lives of the police officers.

Throughout the seasons, both sides make startling revelations, where they have to choose whether to clean up the messes… or hide them.


8. Breaking Bad

Possibly one of the best TV shows of our time, amirite? A high school chemistry teacher is diagnosed with lung cancer, but he makes a surprising turn into the world of manufacturing and selling meth.

And then there's Jesse, who you will no doubt fall in love with.


9. Better Call Saul

If you're having withdrawal symptoms after finishing Breaking Bad, then Saul Goodman is your man.

Even though Saul was the comic relief in Breaking Bad, his own TV show is quite dark. It tells the story of a young lawyer and his trials and tribulations of trying to get into criminal law.


10. Freaks and Geeks

Even though this only has one season, it's well worth a watch. A high school math geek starts hanging out with a group of stoners, and realises that life isn't all about studying.

Meanwhile, her younger brother has to navigate life as a freshman and face up to his bullies. 


11. One Tree Hill

If Chad Michael Murray and James Lafferty aren't enough reason to watch this then we don't know what else to tell you.

One Tree Hill tells the story of half-brothers Lucas and Nathan. They trade between kinship and rivalry, both on the basketball court and in the hearts of their friends in the small, but not so quiet town of Tree Hill. 


12. Dexter

Dexter is an odd but lovely forensic expert who works with the Miami Police Department.

However, he's also a serial killer who hunts down bad guys in order to make the world a safer place (in his eyes). He must trick and deceive the ones closest to him, which makes for great watching.


13. The OC

Again if Adam Brody and Ben McKenzie aren't enough to make you watch this… well, you know the gist. The OC sees a troubled youth taken in by a wealthy family.

The community where they live is very close knit and well-behaved, until Ryan shakes everything up. The soundtrack is also class.



The love story that is Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s daily life is soon to be immortalised for all generations to come in their very own sitcom.

The married couple, and genetically blessed dup captured the hearts of the whole internet with their half (and sometimes fully) naked selfies and witty one-liners (although that’s mostly Chrissy but whatever).

Creator of the hugely successful American sitcom Blackish, Kenya Barris just signed a three-year contract with ABC Studios to develop some new projects. Buzzfeed News reports that his first sitcome is to be loosely based on the relationship between a Grammy winning artist and his Sports Illustrated supermodel wife.

“It’s inspired by them — they’re both super creative and super effusive and I’m just fans of them and everything they stand for,” Kenya explained, before adding: “I’m really excited about it.”

Well, we would be too.

The series is in the very early stages of planning as of now, but Kenya did confirm that it will be about an interracial couple. What would a series such as this be named?

Apparently one possible title is Ordinary People. Kenya said explained: “I feel that song serves a thematic background for the show.”

John’s song won a Grammy in 2004 and creator Kenya says that while the title may be something of John’s making, he finds both Chrissy and John inspiring.

“They’re both super creative and super effusive and I’m just fans of them.”

We are too, Kenya, we are too. We have one burning question though: Who will be ask to portray these two on the small screen? Oh, and another, will their dogs wedding be a series finale? 

We look forward to finding out.


We are just a little over a month away from Netflix’s newest crime drama’s release and oh, are we excited or what!

Narcos is based on real-life Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura), when he was at the height of his power in the 1980s.

In the show’s first trailer we see DEA agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook aka Elizabeth Olsen’s ex-fiancé) as the policeman who is determined to bring the ‘King of Cocaine’ down.

Narcos tells the story of the most powerful man in Colombia who became responsible for approximately 80 percent of the world’s cocaine distribution and almost single-handedly turned Colombia into the murder capital of the world.

Game of Thrones fans will be glad to see a familiar face as Oberyn Martel (Pedro Pascal) plays Javier Peña, the Mexican DEA agent who helped to bring Escobar down.

And for any Entourage fans out there, we can promise you that this looks a WHOLE lot more promising than Vincent Chase’s Medellin




In hindsight, some of these shows are actually incredibly unsuitable for little kids, what were our parents thinking?! Then again, we turned out okay…right?

1. Ren and Stimpy
How this ever got classed as a kid’s show is beyond us. It’s gross and has so many sexual undertones it’s unbelievable!


1392. Braceface
The show’s composition of having it’s main character as an insecure teenage girl (Sharon) with braces is bad enough in itself. Throughout the series, Sharon’s braces would often act as magnets causing her to get into embarrassing situations. The show basically taught teenage girls that braces will bring you nothing but embarrassment and unwanted attention.


3. Arthur
There isn’t anything morally wrong with Arthur and his animal friends; he’s a good kid, who sometimes fights with his little sister D.W and gets into trouble, but he always learns his lesson. But he’s no craic. You can feck right off with your library card lads.

world-without-internet-gifs-library4. The Magic Schoolbus
The thoughts of going to school and having your lizard-loving teacher taking you on daily school trips to the past, the universe or wherever was mind-blowing. But on reflection, it’s very possible that Ms. Frizzle was slipping the kids acid in their juice box on the daily.

ouch_right_in_the_childhood_magic_school_bus-127545. Shin-Shan
In this Japanese magna series, which was usually only shown at 6am, we followed the shenanigans of Shin Chan. A cheeky little fellow, who loved pulling down his pants and sticking sparklers in his arsehole. A bit of a laugh as a child if you ask me, but as a parent? No way.


tumblr_lxp5zwu6y31r7bym3o1_2506. Pokèmon
Animal rights anyone? Anyone?


9YjjrDW7. The Wild Thornberrys
Eliza nearly died in almost all of those episodes. Shouldn’t we be teaching children NOT to approach dangerous jungle animals? Like, seriously?

giphy8. The Rugrats
Absolute rascals. This show encouraged its young viewers to use their imagination when it came to adventures. But what it actually taught us was that you’ll always have more fun if you disobey your parents and go for an adventure in prohibited places.

tumblr_mn6eloruoq1qcmggzo1_500via our content partner CT



1. Pretty Little Liars
How exciting would your life be if you constantly had someone trying to murder you, sending you strage and spooky text messages when you least expect it? Ok, so it’s a little terrifying, but life would never be dull and you’d have a killer wardrobe.

2. Grey’s Anatomy
Or we could be top class doctors, saving lives all over the world and fornicating in extremely hygenic conditions with extremely gorgeous co-workers

3. Girls
Or we could basically be ourselves – awkward and broke but living it up in New York City..

4. Breaking Bad
Or a bad ass, hardcore criminal.

5. Jersey Shore
Before all that Geordie and The Valleys crap, we could have been getting drunk on the Jersey Shore and getting our GTL on..

6. Cake Boss
We might be living off noodles but what college student wouldn’t love the chance to be surrounded by Buddy’s cakes all day?

7. EastEnders
It’s the most dramatic soap to ever grace our screens and it’s been around so long that the characters feel like family. Every New Year’s Eve murder is a stab to the heart!

8. Phineas & Ferb
Okay, so technically we could never star in it but to go on one of Phineas & Ferb’s adventures would be the trip of a lifetime.

9. Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Born rich with crazy parents and even crazier siblings!

10. Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo
We don’t necessarily want to be in the “Boo-Boo” family, but some time there just might make us appreciate the families we have…

11. The Walking Dead
We could be shooting zombies left, right and centre.

12. The X-Factor
Or performing on stage with even though we’ve no natural talent.

13. Modern Family
Who doesn’t want Phil as a father or Sophia Vergara as a hot step-grandmother..

14. Glee
Don’t deny it, you love a good song and dance as much as the next person

15. Skins
It was the TV show that defined our teenage-hood. We all wanted to kiss Tony, marry Cook and kill Allo..
