Winter 2018-2019 movies, TV, and book release dates you can’t afford to miss

With so many winter 2018-2019 movies, TV, and book release dates to look forward to, the next few months are going to be anything but boring!

The winter is the best time of year to not only catch up on shows, books, and movies you missed during the crazy summer and hectic fall but also discover new ones to obsess for. Between all of the extra time off from school/work and the fact that nobody likes to go outside during the winter anyway, there’s so much more time to devote to entertainment endeavors.

Which is a good thing considering everything that’s coming out or happening over the next few months…

We’ve officially entered awards season, which means that theaters near you are going to be full of fabulous, high-quality films for you to choose from. Some we personally have our eyes on are Mary Queen of Scots, Ben is Back, and Spider-Man:Into the Spider-Verse. OH and then there’s the Timeless finale movie that we’re just chomping on the bit to see!

And then there’s TV. Sure, the winter TV schedule isn’t as hectic as the fall’s, but there are a ton of really great shows coming our way this season. Marvel’s Runaways and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel both make their triumphant returns, we finally get to feast our eyes on the CW’s reboot Roswell, New Mexico, AND Brooklyn Nine-Nine rises from the dead to leave us in stitches once more. With all of the TV coming our way this winter, we (probably) won’t even miss our fall shows.

In addition to all of the TV and movies we know you’ll be consuming, there are also quite a few pretty impressive book releases coming our way this winter too! Christina Lauren’s My Favorite Half-Night Stand, Maureen Johnson’s The Vanishing Stair (Truly Devious, #2), Lorraine Cink’s Powers of a Girl… So many great reads, so little time!

So what are you waiting for? Crack open your personal planner, load up your Google calendar, and take note of all of these big winter 2018-2019 movie, TV, and book release dates. You’re not going to want to miss a single one of them!
