2018 is around the corner. Thank goodness, I say, because 2017 has been pretty uneven. And thankfully, Netflix has some queer shows coming up in 2018 for us!
Returns January 26, 2018
I’m so excited I could shriek. Finally y’all get to see what I saw (part of) this summer! You have no idea how happy I am. Keeping these episodes secret for half the year has been killing me. My wife and I have been making jokes (at home only, Mike! I swear!) from the four episodes we saw filmed, as well as the clips we saw at the tapings. The first season ended with Victor, Elena’s father, sodding off at her Quincés, that comemierda. What will season two bring? I can’t tell you, but I think you’ll like it.
Returns March 8, 2018.
When we last left our anti-hero, her lawyer friend Jeri Hogarth had lost her wife at the hands of her lover. We’ve seen Jeri here and there since, in the other Defender-verse shows. She seems to be doing alright. But then again, Jessica hasn’t upended her life in 23 months. God knows what Jessica will do to her.
Finale airs in 2018.
If I was a betting woman, I’d say the finale for Sense8 will be August 8th. All I want to know is if Nominta get married and if Wolfgang survives. Oh, fine, and if Lito gets to be happy and famous. Maybe just a little. I’m not happy that Sense8 is ending. I get that it was super expensive to film, but it’s not like they didn’t know that from the proposals of the show.
And Some Other Shows…
There are of course some other shows coming back to Netflix in 2018, and while they have queer female and trans characters, I wouldn’t go so far as to be happy about that…
- 13 Reasons Why – It’s still unknown if the same characters will be back for the second season.
- Anne With An E – Their background queer may or may not be back.
- Degrassi: Next Class – Yael will be back in 2018 for season 5 of the Canadian school show.
- Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency – The new lesbian will return for the 2018 season.
- Las Chicas Del Cable – There should be more queer action in the coming season.
- Master of None – Denise will be back!
- The OA – Given that Netflix announced season 2 back in February, I would expect season 2 to drop without warning in December.
- Orange is the New Black – Oh … sure. I’m sure this will be back.
