Based on Daria Polatin's popular book and a true story, Devil in Ohio is about a young woman (Madeleine Arthur) who escapes a satanic cult and finds refuge at the home of a psychiatrist (Emily Deschanel). When the cult refuses to let her go, you can expect things get pretty weird for her and the family she's staying with.

First Kill

Netflix
The teens could always use another hot vampire drama to sink their teen into. The latest is headed to Netflix and produced by Emma Roberts. Based on a short story from YA author Victoria "V. E." Schwab, it follows a star-crossed lovers type of story between a young vampire who's supposed to make her first kill and the monster hunter she sets her sights on.

Florida Man

Netflix
Not so much about "Florida Man" the joke than it is Ozark set in Florida, this Jason Bateman-produced series is about an ex-cop (Édgar Ramírez) who goes to Florida to trace the girlfriend (Abbey Lee) of a Philly mobster and ends up way in over his head with dark family secrets.

Giancarlo Esposito of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad leads the cast.

Lost Ollie

If you like Toy Story (and literally who doesn't), this animated Netflix project should be on your radar.

Love and Death

HBO Max
This drama tells the true story of how a Texas woman named Candy Montgomery brutally murdered her best friend Betty Gore in the '80s. If that sounds familiar, it should: Hulu released another dramatized miniseries about the exact same case in spring 2022 with Jessica Biel and Melanie Lynskey as the stars. In this version, Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland) directs, David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) produces, and Elizabeth Olsen and Lily Rabe are in the starring roles. 

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

Netflix
There was a time when American Horror Story staple Evan Peters had to call it quits on starring in the series because he said the material was getting too dark. He did eventually return to the FX series, but now he's starring in perhaps his most intense role ever, playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. It's yet another Netflix project from Ryan Murphy, co-created with his frequent collaborator Ian Brennan, and the limited series is said to be told from the perspective of his victims, exploring how police incompetence contributed to a killing spree that lasted decades.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin

HBO Max
Pretty Little Liars, which ran from 2010 to 2017, was one of Freeform's biggest successes. Based on Sara Shepard's YA novels, it spawned many spinoffs, although none were as successful as the original series about teens Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily, who were terrorized by the mysterious "A" after their friend Allison disappeared. Now, the show is getting rebooted by Lindsay Calhoon Bring and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) with a new cast in a different town and another set of melodramatic horrors. "Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead," baby!

Naomi Watts, Bobby Canavale, and Jennifer Coolidge lead the cast.

Westworld (Season 4)

HBO
This timeline-jumping, consciousness-warping sci-fi series about a robot theme park returns for a fourth season. Co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy love to pull the rug out from underneath the audience every season, so expect even more huge narrative shifts and characters you thought were humans turning out to be robots. Four seasons in, Westworld remains hard to pin down.

The White House Plumbers

HBO
In this five-part historical drama, Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux will portray E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, two members of the Nixon White House and Watergate orchestrators who inadvertently led to the downfall of the presidency.

Netflix
The Witcher was a huge hit on Netflix, and two seasons in, the fans are craving more lore. The Witcher: Blood Origin will follow a new band of heroes 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher and right before the catastrophic Conjunction of the Spheres that brought monsters and magical creatures to the Continent—and created the world's very first Witcher.
