New Year’s is all about anticipation for the future. Here at the FoCC Blog, we always anticipate the next year’s cons, but especially the content that will be highlighted at those cons. We conducted a poll of our staff to determine what upcoming entertainment projects get them most excited for 2020.
In television, we are anticipating new seasons of The Haunting of Bly House (sequel to the Haunting of Hill House), Doctor Who, The Boys, Carnival Row, The Orville, Cobra Kai, The Mandalorian, Lost in Space, The Witcher, and The Expanse. These are all shows that have intrigued us in the past, and we have high hopes for what the future will bring. We are also anticipating the upcoming Picard and Falcon/Winter Soldier series, for which we are truly excited.
In film, many of us have have nostalgic tastes, hoping for quality sequels and remakes in the upcoming films Halloween Kills, The Invisible Man, Wonder Woman 1984, Top Gun: Maverick, Black Widow, Bill And Ted Face the Music, Mulan and Ghostbusters: Afterlife. We fell in love with the original versions, and want to see these new films assuage our hunger for more and bring in new viewers to their fandoms. The trailers released thus far have one whetted our appetites!
We are also anticipating the release of the last novel in the Expanse series, as well as the 2020 Olympic Games, not to mention all of the great conventions we hope to attend this year.
