Period Drama and Romance Watchlist – Week of July 8

A new weekly feature to let you know what to watch each week in the romance and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.

With hundreds of shows and movies currently premiering or airing, we thought we’d compile a weekly Watchlist focused on Romance and Period Drama. That way, those of us looking for something historical or perhaps unabashedly romantic, will know just where to look!

Below you’ll find premieres, new episodes of current shows, new movie releases, as well as some relevant classics on TCM you’ll want to Set Your DVR for. What you won’t find are all the repeats, movies on every paid cable channel (HBO, Showtime, STARZ, etc.), and other extraneous content.
