The first day of spring is officially tomorrow, Monday, March 20, and the change in seasons also seems to usher in a new wave of shows you’ll want to watch. That couldn’t be more apparent than PBS’s lineup tonight, at least. Fan-favorite period dramas Call the Midwife and Sanditon are back, while the Versailles-set Marie Antoinette makes it debut. It’s the perfect way to spend your Sunday evening and will only get you more excited for the premiere of Queen Charlotte in May, followed by Bridgerton season three.
Speaking of charming British characters, Ted Lasso airs this season’s second episode this Wednesday. After last week’s episode (my heart sank for Ted in the final few minutes), the show keeps raising the stakes and I’m loving it.
Meanwhile, Yellowjackets is back for an epic season-two adventure while Daisy Jones & the Six wraps up its run, giving you all the answers you want to know. And then there’s the fourth season of Netflix’s reality TV hit Love Is Blind, which is all anyone can talk about in our office (some of us have seen it, and it’s loaded).
We also have two exclusives this week: a clip from tonight’s American Idol that involves Katy Perry, astrology, and a Barbra Streisand song; and a scene with the cutest baby goats from Nat Geo and Disney+’s new series with chef Kristen Kish called Restaurants at the End of the World.
On that note, hope you’re enjoying the extra hour of daylight and have caught up on that lost hour of sleep. I’ll see you back here next Sunday for the final season of Succession.
