A new monthly feature to let you know what to watch in the romance, Romanticism, and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.
October’s a busy month for TV fans as all the new shows premiere and old favorites return. However, at the top of the premieres list is the BBC romantic period drama, The Woman in White! Besides TV premieres, there are still a few movies worth checking out in theaters or VOD. So, enjoy the October 2018 watchlist below!
Below you’ll find watchlist highlights for premieres, standout episodes of current shows (IE: season finales), new movie releases, and new VOD for the month of October 2018. What you won’t find are all the repeats, movies on every paid cable channel (HBO, Showtime, STARZ, etc.) or streaming, and other extraneous content. This watchlist is for what’s new or a special standout in the genres of romance, Romanticism, and Period Drama! So, it’s not inclusive of everything. Schedules and release dates are subject to change.
(NOTE: We typically aim to share less explicit content that has PG-13 “like” content and below minus a few exceptions for artistic merit and/or genre interest. If a program is Rated R or TV-M, we will let you know why.)
