We at Bright Side are always on the lookout for new interesting TV series with exciting plot twists and unforgettable characters. That's why we've prepared this compilation of 10 awesome shows that have every chance of attracting the viewers' love and attention in 2017!

American Gods

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble...until he finds out that she's been killed in a horrible accident. As he flies home for the funeral, a violent storm rocks the plane. Shadow strikes up a conversation with a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday and appears to know more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is on the way. From that moment on, nothing will be the same.

A long-awaited adaptation of one of the most famous works by Neil Gaiman, this show promises to be beautiful and atmospheric.

Big Little Lies

A story of three mothers whose lives become interlinked because of a mysterious murder that occurs at a parent meeting in a kindergarten. The cast includes Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman — in itself a great reason to watch this curious series!

A Series of Unfortunate Events

After their parents die in a terrible fire, the three Baudelaire children - Violet, Klaus, and Sunny - become orphans and are placed in the custody of Count Olaf, who will stop at nothing in his attempts to steal their inheritance. The show is based on the series of books by Lemony Snicket.

The Mist

Following a violent thunderstorm, a thick mist engulfs a small American town. The mist brings with it terrible monsters that are now stalking the streets. The series is based on a novel by Stephen King and is influenced by the novel's 2007 big-screen adaptation. Looks like this could be a monstrous hit!

Twin Peaks

25 years ago, residents of the small town of Twin Peaks were stunned by the mysterious murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. But the story is not over yet, with the events of bygone days still making themselves felt. This long-awaited continuation of one of the cult series of the '90s will once again reunite many of our favorite actors.

Powerless

Emily works as an insurance agent, helping ordinary people to compensate the damage caused by superheroes battling supervillains. One day, she accidentally ends up in the middle of one such battle and becomes a "heroine" herself - but only in the eyes of her quirky colleagues. Soon, Emily begins to understand that to be a true hero a person doesn't necessarily have to possess superpowers. An anti-superhero series that will surely delight us with humor and originality.

The Deuce

This TV project explores the chaotic world of the porn industry in the 1970-80s which used to flourish in the heart of Manhattan until the emergence of AIDS, the proliferation of drug trafficking, and changes in the real estate market put an end to the madness. Starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal (the photo features another actress), the show promises to be very dramatic.

The Defenders

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up to fight crime in New York City. A must for any superhero fan!

Taboo

Adventurer James Keziah Delaney is building his own shipping empire in the early 1800s. The main protagonist created by Tom Hardy is brutal, wild, and determined, and the plot certainly promises to be exciting and mystical.

Roadside Picnic

This is the story of Redrick Schuhart - one of the so-called "stalkers" who make their living by smuggling mysterious and powerful artifacts out of the danger-filled Zone (a large stretch of land near the town of Harmont, altered by a recent alien visitation). Based on a gritty and thought-provoking novel by the Strugatsky Brothers, this series promises to deliver solid sci-fi with an exciting plot and mesmerizing visuals.
