Spring is coming and, like flowers on a digital lawn, the TV series bloom.

They have the vivid colors of the red cloaks of Gilead's maids or the lysergic hues of David Haller's hallucinations and the acrid scent of fire that blazes in Shondaland's new show.

After a March marked by more or less well-made products such as the excellent English crime miniseries Collateral, the fairytale A Series of Unfortunate Events 2 or the epic in the arctic circle of The Terror, April is characterized by expected returns and some news.

Finally we could see the second seasons of The Handmade Tales and Westworld, the final episodes of New Girl and the debut of the Gray's anatomy spin-off.

NSS informs you of the most interesting TV series coming in between April and May.

Sit back and press "play".

 

The Crossing, ABC, 2 April

A group of refugees seeking asylum in a small town in Oregon. They do not escape from a distant country, but from the America of the future torn by war. The local sheriff with a troubled past (Steve Zahn), a federal agent and a mother in search of her missing daughter are the key of this new mystery drama broadcast on ABC characters.

Dworkin and Beattie, creators of the show, got the idea of the project by looking at different photographs of refugees from Greece and Syria, in particular they were inspired by the image of a father who supported his son. Then, to give a twist to the plot, they added the theme of time travel.

Some have called The Crossing "the new Lost," the series will live up to the comparison?

 

Legion 2, FX, April 3rd

David Haller, the schizophrenic mutant of Legion, is back.

This time the visionary superhero will try to stop the Shadow King who is infecting people with a mysterious virus that causes them to fall into a catatonic state.

It's been a year since the story had stopped in the first season and some things have changed. In the promo of the new episodes we see David returning to his friends after a period of imprisonment, which, meanwhile, have formed an alliance with the men of Division 3 to capture Shadow King.

The debut of 2017 has been a critical and public success, fingers crossed so that it is also the second season.
