Grab a cup of hot cocoa, snuggle up with your favorite blanket, and get ready to have a busy pop culture season. Hypable’s winter 2017-18 calendar is here!

This winter, keep the cold (and S.A.D.) at bay with these upcoming movie and book releases, TV premieres, and special events. Your December, January, and February are going to be so busy that it’ll be spring before you know it!

Just a note: This winter pop culture calendar won’t be including show return and mid-season premiere dates because it would just become too long and unwieldly.

*Don’t worry! We’ll keep updating our winter 2017-2018 release date calendar as new and exciting dates are announced!*
