We hope it’s not too late to tweak our holiday wish lists, because we’ve got a few last-minute requests.
With another year of television behind us — including surprise guest stars, plot twists and nostalgic cast reunions that left us feeling extremely grateful — we’re now looking ahead to the TV we want to see in 2021.
In the list below, each member of Team TVLine — President/Editorial Director Michael Ausiello, Editor-in-Chief Matt Webb Mitovich, Managing Editor Kimberly Roots, Executive Editor Andy Swift, Senior Editor Dave Nemetz, West Coast Editor Vlada Gelman, News Editor Rebecca Iannucci, Staff Editor Ryan Schwartz and Weekend Editor Nick Caruso — has made three wishes for the upcoming year, singling out the storylines, performances and long-shot renewals that would warm our TV-loving hearts.
Among our requests for 2021: proper conclusions for GLOW, Empire and One Day at a Time, a Friends reunion on HBO Max that’s worth the year-plus wait, the returns of COVID-delayed series like So You Think You Can Dance and a Hart of Dixie reunion that we hope All Rise can make a reality.
Of course, there are also some TV developments we don’t want to see in the new year. Reboots of Pretty Little Liars and True Blood? No, thank you! More COVID storylines on our favorite shows? Pass. And if we never had to watch a political figure stumble around the Dancing With the Stars ballroom again, it’d be too soon.
Scroll through the list below to see what’s on Team TVLine’s wish list, and be sure to come back tomorrow (aka Christmas Day!) to peruse TVLine readers‘ 2021 wishes. Happy holidays!
