Now that we’ve officially made it through the entertainment dry spell that kicks off every new year, EW is looking forward to what 2015 really has to offer. And in order to start your year off right, we’re rounding up our staff picks for what we’re most looking forward to this spring. For the next six weeks, six different staff members will provide their lists of entertainment musts.
Spring is the time of season finales, when all of my favorite fall TV shows come to their shocking conclusions. But it’s also the time of year when my favorite summer shows return, not to mention the many films and albums that will find themselves on my own personal Must List.
Starting in late March, here are a few of the things I (literally) have highlighted on my calendar:
Bloodline, March 20: Netflix’s new series follows the Rayburns, a family living peacefully in the Florida Keys until the black-sheep son threatens to start exposing long-hidden secrets. More importantly, this series marks Kyle Chandler’s return to television. You know—clear eyes, full hearts, and such.
Furious 7, April 3: Wherever Dom and Letty go, I follow, especially when there’s sky diving (in cars), Ronda Rousey fighting in a full-length dress, and Dwayne Johnson breaking out of a cast simply BECAUSE HE CAN.
Outlander, April 4: Starz’s new hit series follows Claire, a loving wife who is transported back in time to the 1700s, where she starts to fall for Scottishman Jamie. Last we saw the couple in season one, Claire and Jamie’s journey as a married couple had only just begun, and from the looks of the trailer, there’s a lot lovin’ in their future.
Orphan Black, April 18: This season, there are male clones. I repeat: There are male clones.
Lifehouse’s Out of the Wasteland, May 1: My teenage self can’t let go of my Lifehouse love, so yes, I will buy their new album the day that it hits
